4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle into an Andechs weizen glass.
Pours with a tawny, amber-cola body that sports a healthy dose of carbonation. Attractive head sits as a crown of khaki bubbles up top, retaining well and leaving a few patches of lace behind. Creamy weizenbock- like aroma with vanilla and German yeast esters of bubblegum and banana.
Very flavorful beer, with floral hops and a big malt presence that coats the palate with wheat-y vanilla, banana, and clove. Alcohol lurks in the background, adding a spicy semi-heat to the finish. Mouthfeel is hefty, but not overbearing to the tongue. Smooth carbonation makes for a smoother finish. One of New Belgium’s better LoF releases, and a great hybridization of the Weizenbock/Dunkelweizen style

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Pacific Liquor: The liquid poured dark leather brown and created a huge monstrous foam head. As for the aroma, my nose is met with a strong scent of banana bread and a faint smell of caramel in the distant background. Flavor brings about hints of salty and sweetness that stem from the rich base of caramel dark malt that also has a touch of spicy yeast that revive a subtle taste of banana. Solid dunkelweizen at an affordable price.

Bomber. Not much aroma from this style or how dark it poured. Really malt heavy and sour.

Has an funky, non-offensive, unidentifiable smell. Tastes like your basic coffee chocolate stout. Gets better with each drink. Has a dark chocolate aftertaste.

The aroma is fantastic with strong flavors. The taste is an assortment of dark fruit with prunes. Also has a bit of smokey wood, slight toffee. A beer for the true beer drinker

Poured black browned with fluffy tan head. Tastes of roasted nuts and wheat. Nice malty character with the perfect amount of hops will buy again.
