3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle into snifter glass, hazy chocolate brown color with creamy light tan head. Aroma of heavy malt sweetness, dried dark fruits (raisins, dates, figs), banana, clove, honey and a red wine-like note. Taste brings out notes of toast, plums, toffee, some cinnamon, pretty yeasty and booze. Heavy body, low carbonation, rich, creamy, malty with some lingering malty yeasty booziness. Very much like a quad, delicious.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2-oz. bottle. Rich plum and fig jump out immediately, creating a heavy bouquet. Spoiled banana esters, clove, yeasty dough, fresh pear, cinnamon raisin, and a trace of black pepper also waft up from the soap-suds-like head that tops the murky purplish-brown liquid. A boozy raisin flavor rushes hard over the palate before a spicy herbal tone pops up to alleviate the richness. A bit of botanical blend joins complex notes of prunes and woody pear. The heat (from both the alcohol and the spiciness) complements the sweet fruity flavors well, but the burn becomes a tad too dominant after a while. Lively carbonation keeps the slick mouthfeel dancing over the taste buds before a peppery dry finish brings it all to a halt. A nice sipper, but the alcohol burn, while expected, keeps it from maximum enjoyment.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Marrom escura, espuma bege de média formação e pouca persistência. Aroma lembra groselha, uva passa, cereja, licor de morango, álcool perceptível. Paladar segue bastante as impressões iniciais do aroma, bastante malte de média torrefação, novamente uvas e morango, dulçor intenso e amargor proveniente do malte torrado. Corpo licoroso, baixa carbonatação. Aftertaste de longa duração, dulçor persistente, álcool bastante presente que depois de um tempo acaba atrapalhando a percepção do sabor, mas por estar dentro do estilo, não considerei como um defeito. Muito boa !

Pours thick muddy brown, as with regular wheat beer it has a lot of yeast sediment, swirled this and added t glass. Aromas and taste of deep, dark fruits. A fair bit of alcohol burn to this but is to be expected, Soft, sweet slightly dry finish. Nice beer!!

Bottle shared. Wow this is mindblowing, so deep and complex, tons of raisin, toffee and tart, thick mouthfeel, warming boozy notes. Outstanding, to be sipped and enjoyed slowly.

Adquirida en botella de 330 ml. en Whole Foods, LES, New York. Estupenda weisse que a pesar de su alto contenido alcoholico es muy fácil de tomar. Su aspecto entre marrón y rojizo, su espuma casi beige, su aroma complejo completan un combo irresistible.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours reddish brown with a beige head. Aroma is of caramel, dark fruit, wheat, and alcohol. Taste is of dark fruit, caramel, sugar, and wheat. Has a very sweet taste to it. Lingering taste of dark fruit and grass. The alcohol is there, and it provides a nice warming effect. The mouthfeel is almost syrupy, and very sticky. Body is medium, and very carbonated. Its not bad at all, its just not really my thing. Don’t think I would drink it again.
