Nice one, glad you liked it! Quite please with it myself but, like you, unsure of how it compares with others of the same style.Weizenbock by @pilgrimhudd :
TLDR: Nailed it

First Impressions - Bubblegum aroma leaps out the bottle! Decent head on pouring - it didn't stick around so well but lacing was pretty good.
Colour - Dark reddish-brown
Aroma - Bubblegum
Carbonation and mouthfeel - Carbonation is probably a bit low for the style (I'm guessing) but absolutely spot on for me, not too gassy. Pretty substantial mouthfeel.
Taste - I get bubblegum (rather than banana or clove that you might expect) followed by some really nice fruity esters, all supported by a firm malty backbone. There's an impression of sweetness but I think it comes from the esters rather than the malt. But in any case there's enough alcohol to cut through it.
Overall - BJCP says "A strong, malty, fruity, wheat-based ale" and that's exactly what this beer is. Even though I'm not familiar with the style, a class act like this speaks for itself. It's full, it's rich, it's warming - it's a perfect beer to sip on a cold winter evening
Is your recipe on you brewday thread? I like the idea of bubblegum in a wbock so I am curious what yeast you used.Nice one, glad you liked it! Quite please with it myself but, like you, unsure of how it compares with others of the same style.
