COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ruddy orange in color, this unfiltered wheat beer enjoys a spicy aroma that hints at raisin, clove, banana, and bubblegum. Full bodied yet very easy drinking with a toasted caramel malt finish.

mcberko (7244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
On tap at Fat Headís Portland, pours an opaque dark red / burgundy with a small tan head. Aroma is intense, with notes of caramel, dark fruits and toasted nuts. Flavour is along the same lines, with strong dried dark fruits, caramel and brown sugar. A totally American doppelbock, but I like it all the same. Nice syrupy sweet beer without being cloying in any way.

Sarlacc83 (950) - Oregon, USA - NOV 8, 2014
On tap at the Portland location. A: Stirred up mud brown, off-white head, some lacing. N: Banana, clove, rain, bubble gum, those little valentineís hearts that always remind me of pepto-bismol, peppercorn. T: Very sweet, somewhat spicy. M: Light body, dense carbonation. O: Fruity concoction which has an artificial candy quality that I do not enjoy. First batch blues?

Draft at the Pittsburgh location. Pours a hazed brown with a beige head of thin foam. The aroma had notes of dark fruits, some esters, banana, wheaty bread. Taste is on the sweet side with a nice wheaty body. Thicker mouthfeel. Almost chewy. Lower carbonation. Really good weizenbock.
