bottle and very unusual. Canít get the memory of my uncle and his pipe out of my head, pungent seet odor and bitter tatste, but I canít say drinking the pipe was the same.

Bottle from trade side by side with other Penn stuff. Pours a reddish amber color with a creamy white head. Sweet cinnamon candy aroma, a bit of toffee and caramel. Flavor is a bit of cinnamon on top of what seems to be that cream cheese icing flavor that I didnít expect. A bit of nuttiness in there as well. Medium bodied with slightly prickly carbonation. This is a neat beer and seems like it would be good for the holiday times. Just like it is described.

Bottle. Nutty herbal pine and caramel malt aroma. Cloudy brown with small head. Sweet nutty caramel malt and lightly bitter pine flavor. Light body. Nice balance - not overly spiced.

On tap at Fries. Dark but clear brown color. Minimal off-white head, little loose lace. Nice, interesting flavorful aroma. Very spot-on nut roll, like a christmas cake. Really nice nutty, rich and spicy nose. Some cinnamon, nutmeg. Itís more rich than spicy, though, great balance. Sweet, but not cloyingly so. Medium body, smooth carbonation. Interesting, tasty brown ale. But the only thing is, a whole pint is a little intense. The sweetness doesnít seem nearly as balanced through the second half...

12 ounce bottle. Dark reddish brown color. Small beige head disappears immediately. Faint roasted malt aroma hints at cinnamon and allspice. Roasted malt flavor with notes of currants and toasted nuts. Flavors develop as brew warms up. Some fruity citrus hops in finish. Definately improves at about 55 degrees.

weihenweizen (2384) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into an English pint glass. Clear copper with small off-white head. Aroma is rich nuts, medium body, medium/low carbonation, and pretty good small-bubble lacing. Taste is slightly rich nuts, caramel malt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lactose. The nuts and lactose donít completely meld for me, but still pretty good.

cpost (3) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2012 does not count
On tap in December 2012; rich, caramel in color, nutmeg and nut present in aroma, almost no head and no lacing, lighter in body than anticipated, overall good but I wish it was a bit heartier

This poured a brown color with a white head. Aroma of.nutmeg cinnamon and caramel. Flavor similar, some dark fruit but just too sweet for my liking

Pours dark brown with virtually no head. Aroma almost of cola. Interesting. Taste is cola sweet with a slow building bitterness that doesn't offset the sweet but exists with it. Not refined, a bit too sweet. No entirely unpleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
