Weizen Bock (Tree Brewing) and a Healthy Drowsiness

Flavius: Here is more proof that beer is good for you.
Meterman: I'm listening...
F: In the April 2009 issue of Clinical Nutrition, they tested beers for melatonin and antioxidant content. The higher the alcohol content for the beer tested provided higher melatonin content. This contributed to a higher antioxidant status in test subjects. Higher antioxidant status has been associated with lower incidences of heart disease and more.
M: Sorry what was that?
F: You said you were listening. Melatonin in beer..
M: Yes, but never to you. And I always thought it was your conversations that were putting me to sleep.

Weizen Bock (Tree Brewing)

Ratebeer 3.53 68th percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +4

I'm not used to great beers from Tree Brewing, but this is different. There is a huge nose of banana baby food, citrus, lemon and sweet grains. The taste is very light, refreshing and similar to the nose; lemon zest, banana and yeast.

Aftertaste +1

Sadly the ending was very crisp and clean. Perhaps there was a slight rum soaked bananas at the ending.

Alcohol Content +1 7%

The alcohol was no where to be tasted or smelled

Value +1

For $5 for a 650ml bomber, this beer is underpriced.

Ingame Enhancement +1

This was the first night they released the survivor pack for L4D. Which button makes your character wet his pants and call for mommy?

Overall 8/10

I purposely held this review back so I could buy up the rest of this beer in the city. I doubt that my reviews make that much of an impact, but I was not taking any chances. This is a great beer.
