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!

phaleslu (6812) - 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 Iím glad to see I wasnít crazy. Good beer.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Deep dark caramel, moderate to large frothy sandy head, nice lacing.   Heavy dark bready nose, slight dark pitted fruit, semi-sweet.   Strong breadiness, dark pitted fruit, mild sweetness, a bit of caramel and wheatiness.   More bockish than wheaty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Feels pretty heavy, without being cloying.   Spicy finish, mild wheatiness, bready, and thankfully not too cloying.   For a Weizen Bock I will say that its not as Wheaty as others, but its also not as bready and cloying.   Pretty tasty stuff.   Thanks to mora2000 for the bottle!
