This top-fermented, unfltered Wheat Bock beer is the counterpart to Bayern’s famous Doppelbock Lager. Bayern’s only decoction-brewed beer, the recipe uses five types of malt (Wheat, Pilsener, Carmel, Munich and Chocolate), and has an o.g. of > 17 % Plato, producing a stout 7.5 % Alc. by Vol. As with all Bayern wheat beers, Face Plant surprises with its complex flavor. German Hallertauer Perle hops give this hearty Bock beer a perfectly balanced sweetness.

Dark yellow pour. Aroma of wood straw malt coffee. Tastes of coffee. Slightly short of sweet. Light carb thick yet refreshing. Well done doppel. Wheaty earthiness adds complexity.

Draught. Despite not being a fan of the style, I though this was passable for a beer (which is a huge style compliment). Poured a clear and very dark brown color with no head. Nose was sweet with caramel in there as well as some wheat. Taste was malty and a little toasty. Seemed more like a doppelbock to me.

Dark amber to brown color. Sips with malt and toffee. Medium bodied. Slight hop bitterness to counter the malt sweetness up front. Full bodied flavor throughout and chocolate in the finish.

12 oz. bottle- Pours a nice clear ruby red with a one finger tan head that reduces. Aroma is pretty generic, some sweet brown sugar, wheat, malt, nothing offensive. The taste is smooth, sweet caramel malt, brown sugar, wheat, some yeast, this actually pretty tasty, I like it. Body is a little thinner than I would like, but it makes it very sessionable, I could drink more than one of these. Thanks Bro for sharing, more enjoyable than I thought it would be.

12 oz bottle from a six pack bought at a tiny little store in Montana. Pours opaque dark brown with a medium beige head with decent retention. Aroma is of dark fruits, caramel, light banana. Taste is lightly sweet, tangy and a little savory; no bitterness. A little boozy. Body seems a little thin, texture foamy and a tad watery. Doesn’t taste bad but this might be the boringest weizenbock I’ve ever had. It doesn’t have the clove character I crave in this style.

Malty and toasty up front, this doppelweizen is just rich enough to make sense as a double of the classic dark weizen beer. Mellow but not boring, this beer is what I look for in cold winter months. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to solved plastic cup to drink discretely in the presence of my mother in law. My first wiezen bock. Brown color, off-white head. Aroma is toasty sweet malt. Taste is the same, plus bready yeast. Medium body, lively carbonation. Overall: the bottle art/name reminds me of all of my outdoor winter sport experiences. Sweet, drinkable, very pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
