Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Weizenbock #37 poured an incredibly hazy honey color into the glass with vigorous carbonation feeding a frothy white head. Aromas of banana and clove were most present, but a subtle hop presence added some pine and spice.
Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Weizenbock #37 opened with a huge, sweet banana start that carried through a Belgian yeast funk into the body of the beer. The middle was sweet to the point of being overbearing, but the ale surprisingly spiced up as it faded, bringing through some more interesting pepper flavors that cut the sweetness.
Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Weizenbock #37 certainly sits as a wheat ale with bock character, and is much more closely related to the wheat bears in Europe than those made on this side of the pond. Another beer that is a bit too much on its own but that would shine with spicy food.
