AleSmith Decadence is a dark Weizenbock featuring malted wheat and a unique German yeast. A complex blend of rich, dark fruit flavors and a yeast derived spiciness create a deliciously balanced beer. Dark ruby hues and smooth full-bodied mouthfeel are highlighted in this classic Bavarian style.

Mahogany color. Sweet aroma, candies like and candi sugar. Caramel flavor, smooth mouthfeel, sweetish, with low bitterness. The final is drier, and a bit more bitter and nutty, but. Still , it’s too simple. A Bock?
