GKillian (525) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Pours amber; head is thick and foamy, like fluffy clouds; foamy lacing as well. Pleasant caramel notes; also hints of wheat and smoke. Balanced taste with a nod toward the bitter hops. A bit harsh going down.

Guruhso (332) - Grindsted, DENMARK - APR 19, 2016
Bottle. Moderat malty aroma of caramel and chocolate with yeasty notes; earthy, basement. Floral, spicy hops. Metallic. The flavours starts light sweet but finish moderat bitter. The body is light and the texture is watery. Lively carbonation.

JStax (4595) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2016
11.2 ounce bottle of beer from weihenweizen. The beer is a crystal clear amber with a velvet head of beige foam. The aroma has crisp doughy biscuits, some light grassy character, a crumbly graham cracker nuance, and a sweet caramel. The taste has a nutty, earthy sweetness to it. Some sweet caramel notes as well. Crisp malty taste. Medium body and medium to high carbonation. Overall, the beer is pretty nice and easy drinking. I could see drinking this beer regularly. Great beer experience.

floydslip (320) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 21, 2016
Mahogany colored beer with a thick foamy light tan head. Nose of unbaked bread, light caramel, and grass. Flavor is caramel, toasted nuts, and something a little soapy. This is followed by a waxy bitterness that lingers. I like the malt flavors; not crazy about the hops.

jsmerig (1456) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Pours a deep reddish brown with a bubbly white head. Aroma is musty and slightly fruity. Taste is dry and bitter with some malty notes. The carbonation and the hops make this a dry beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty strong (and nice) smoked cheese + slight dark choc/caramel nose; more toasted almonds + sweet choc on way to a more lager malt finish
