4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Sampler) 4oz sample glass at the brewpub. Pours a large, frothy beige head atop a mahogany body. Nose refreshingly marshmellow, roasted malt and wheaty. Not as overly sweet and thick as Schneider Aventinus, one of my Top10 personal favourites, but this beer is substantial, well balanced... nice mild fig and vanilla, good palate. Thinner than Aventinus but this still looks like it’ll stand up for a few months to cellaring. Nice work to the new owners of Moon Under Water.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft - Dark malts, raisin, bread and toffee. Cloudy brown with a rich brown head. Clove, mint, molasses, dark malts, raisin and more. Really nice, I think this is a winner.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lots of sweet candy and bubblegum aromas. Copper brown in colour and lots of lacing. Lots of clove tastes and a malty finish. A pretty good beer but not a fan of the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger and a half of light beige head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits and light roasted grains with some chocolate and grass. Taste is a grassy hop and roasted grain bitterness with a dark fruit and chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This is a decent brew for the style, but the flavors seem to be a little off, does not seem to be properly balanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light peanut, cotton candy, caramel. Burnt white sugar. Perfectly sweet, cinnamon and nutmeg with a lovely, pure sugar flavor. No ugly malt sweetness. Candi sugar, maybe? Easy drinking, good body.

Dark pour. Typical weizenbock but still a great beer. Good flavor and aroma.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Clear dark copper, lasting compact creamy tan head. Aroma of toasted wheat, banana and yeast. Taste is caramel, sweet milk chocolate, toasted wheat malt, yeasty fruitiness and bubblegum. Carbonation is too soft, medium bodied, lightly hopped. While the ABV is well hidden, there is a definite alcohol warming effect. Light spice, clove and citrus show up in a rather flat finish. Probably better on tap. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wow. This is surprisingly well done. Reminds me a little of Aventinus in taste and aroma. Pours sediment-filled brown with good head lacing. Aroma has nice florals with a little sour mash on finish and some sweetness. Booze incognito. Their best beer by a long shot. On tap at brewpub.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, thanks Daniel! Orangepeel, mint and preserved apricot aromatics with fresh hop overtones. Cloudy red chestnut, creamy amber head. Light Rumtopf, rye bread, plums, orangepeel in the background. Roast grain, pepper, restrained yeasty notes follows, wonderfull grassy and citric hop finish. Chewy, yet dry and sparkly mouthfeel. Dark bread, lemonpeel and pine aftertaste.
Moreish bold and fresh rendition of a really difficult style - I am well impressed.

On tap at St Augustine’s on The Drive in Vancouver. A muddy dark brown. A very competent dark wheat beer. Nice one!
