Editors’ Picks: Weizenbock Primary Image

Great Lakes Brewing Glockenspiel

In this beer, all of the ingredients shine and sing in harmony. It’s full-bodied, with the vibrant esters of banana and clove, a smack of earthy, slightly spicy hops, and a caramel malt sweetness to tie it all together.
ABV: 8% IBUs: 20 Location: Cleveland, Ohio

Victory Brewing Moonglow

An occasional offering from the Pennsylvania brewery, Moonglow is slated for a return later this year. Previous versions of the dark, unfiltered, malted-wheat–forward bock have featured honey and vanilla with an assertive clove bite. It’s a hearty sipper built for autumn.
ABV: 8.7% IBUs: N/A Location: Downingtown, Pennsylvania

Schneider Weisse Tap 6 Aventinus

Aventinus is often considered the gold standard of the style—and with good reason. This is a bock with depth, where the caramel, banana, and clove flavors we’ve come to expect are blended together into a full-bodied and smooth-drinking beer.
ABV: 8.2% IBUs: 16 Location: Bavaria, Germany
