COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Complex with dark malt flavors that are complemented by esters of banana and clove-like characteristics found in any good Weizen Doppelbock. Traditionally, there was an ordinance in Germany that reserved this style for the sole consumption of the royal family; now they are for everyone!

weihenweizen (1743) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Refrigerated brown bomber, from blutt59, with one finger beige head which takes some time to dissipate. Dark brown with small medium brown highlight. Aroma is roasted malt/banana, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly creamy texture, and medium small-bubble lacing. Taste is roasted malt, banana, esters, hints of clove, and dryer finish. As much as a dopplebock as a weizenbock. Nice amount of flavor, alcohol is well covered, but not for me.

Had at the Great Arkansas Beer Festival 2014. Pours a dark brown with a nice head. Aroma is some banana, some clove, and sweet malts. Medium bodied. Nice flavor - some wheat. Good beer.

TXBadger (1398) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2014
An average doppelbock style beer. Some roasted malts and light fruits on the nose and palate, but nothing special.

high_on_hops (625) - Burlingame, California, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a tan head and lacing. It has an aroma of dark malt and some banana and bread, and a flavor of toasted malt, some clove, and a bit of coffee and chocolate in the semisweet aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sledutah (4690) - Utah, USA - APR 25, 2014
22oz bottle thanks to thirdeye
Pours dark brown with a medium sized beige head that dissipates quickly, spotty lacing. Aroma is chocolate, clove, banana and caramel. Taste is dark malts, caramel, clove with some bitterness and dry
Nice. I’ve had this over 2 years in my cellar so I was worried it was too long, but it held up good.

SPDickerman (957) - Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Pours dark brown with a large tan head. Smells malty with hints of clove and banana. Taste is sweet, a little fruity, hints of spice, and a touch of caramel. Full-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Rahr & Sons Angry Goat finishes with a soft caramel sweetness.

phaleslu (6551) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2013
22 oz. botle via Texas trade, I believe from my buddy Bryan- thanks again! Split three ways. Pours a deep but not opaque chocolate brown with some floaters in the third glass. Notes of caramel, chocolate, brown sugar, banana, clove, pecan, and earth. Some dark stone fruits, as well. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a malty, slightly gritty mouthfeel. I opened this thinking it was just a doppelbock and picking up on some weizen banana and clove, so I’m glad to see I wasn’t crazy. Good beer.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 28, 2013
22 oz served in a Hefeweizen glass A - Pours a burnt caramel brown with 2 fingers of tan head. Leaves behind a few strands of lacing. S - Fried plantains and pears coated with caramelized brown sugar and a dusting of cocoa. Brown bread crust. T - Follows the aroma with candied plantains, pears covered in burnt caramel, light chocolate, clove. Finishes with strong fruity esters, cocoa, and a woody bourbon flavor. Very nice! M - Medium body and carbonation. Smooth and silky feel. The fruit esters were a big component to this beer as well as a thick malt profile. Good roundness overall. Nice feel and quite tasty. Recommended! Serving type: bottle 02-08-2012

Phatdog1 (179) - Brentwood, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bomber compliments of TJ. Nice dark caramel pour. Aroma of caramel, burnt sugar and dark fruit. Tasty dark malt flavor with a nice banana ester finish. Slight bitterness at the back end. Unexpectedly drinkable, as this is not my usual style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
