According to Wikipedia, bocks were originally brewed as ales in the 14th century. Does anyone have a medieval bock ale recipe they'd like to share?

Sorry, don't have a recipe, but when I toured Weihenstephan brewery in Germany, the brew master told me that their bock is still brewed with ale yeast. I asked why, and he said because that's how it was originally done. So, if you can find a clone for Weihenstephaner Korbinian (doppelbock), that'd be a good ale bock.
