COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bananas and cloves tickle your nose. Rum raisins and licorice dance on your tongue. Joy and happiness abound. This bee was born a Weizenbock, but it grew up a strong Belgian Dubbel. Happy Holidays.

Hank1980 (942) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 18, 2009
On tap Labor Day weekend. Poured dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of wheat, sweet malt, dark fruit, sugar. Taste is a little more like a wheat, with some ester flavors and spice, still plenty of sweet malt notes and dark fruit. Pretty interesting. Mouth is pretty full and smooth. Warming finish. Overall, one of the most unique wheat beers I’ve ever had.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 4, 2009
This was absolutely fantastic. One of my new favorites from 5 Seasons. Great spicy esthers. Upon blind tasting I would have called this a Weizenbock, but this is a fabulous hybrid. The yeasty texture already present melds nicely with flavors of raisins and dark fruits, with a lingering cereal malt graininess that gives great texture and mouthfeel. Nicely hidden alcohol, leaves this one to sneak up on you.

ChainGangGuy (4347) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 12, 2009
Appearance: Seemingly opaque, dark amber-brown body (the subdued late night lighting is throwing of my appearance check) with a thin, off-white head. Smell: Toasted wheat malt with sweet-scented notes of caramel and brown sugar. Pinch of spices. Wafting fruit scent along with a sniff of good, clean alcohol. Taste: Flavor of toasted wheat with an overall dark breadiness to it. Tastes of bananas brushed with caramel and brown sugar and spiced with clove and nutmeg. Mild, earthy bitterness. Fruity notes of green raisins and, though lightly, some apricot. Drying finish with a lingering toasted wheat taste. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel. Drinkability: Abbey Winter is a good beer, just as abbywinters is a good website. Full of flavor but still very drinkable, which leaves me wondering on the ABV% of this one.

jzzbassman (1467) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - MAR 19, 2009
For a weizenbock, seemed very light. Ruby pour with a sweet banana aroma. Flavor had lots of the good esthery goodness, but the thin finish was a bit disappointing.

decaturstevo (4851) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Clove, brown sugar on the nose. Lightly hazed copper with a hint of orange. Brown sugar, light clove, and a tad of sour. A wee bit thin with good carbonation. Complex to the point of unusual.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2009
Hazy cloudy red-brown, off white head. Sweet malt aromas of plums and plum candy. Soft mouthfeel. Juicy body just like the golden ale, only with loads of plum character. Nice.

Cybercat (3194) - Georgia, USA - FEB 2, 2009
Pours a dark warm amber brown with a fairly persistent tan head. Aroma is strong and wheaty with an undertone of banana and a touch of spice. Rich wheaty flavor has a banana tone and hints of cloves. Texture is smooth and creamy, a little tingly. Excellent.
