Deep and complex – for big and relaxing moments by the fire.

Dark-ruby colored wheat doppelbock with a creamy fine head. Strong notes of ripe bananas, raisins and plums meet liquorice and roasty aromes. Full-bodied and warming, with a well-balanced and smooth finish. The ideal companion for hearty roast meat, venison and also fruity chocolate desserts, “Kaiserschmarrn” (pancakes), “Elisenlebkuchen” (christmas cookies) or blue cheese.

Oldest wheat doppelbock of Bavaria. Since 1907. 18.5°

Pours hazy brown, tan head. Intense aroma of banana. That’s all. Fizzy, sweetish, full-bodied. No bitterness. Long finish.

Just a stunning beer. Dark chestnut hue. Aromas that are off the charts gorgeous with baking spices, bread, perhaps even some dried fruit. The breadth and depth of flavors is amazing: strong and concentrated, this is a brew worth contemplating but it maintains great balance, never veering off into booziness or fatiguing the palate. If there’s a beer I like more than this--anywhere--I can’t think of what it is. Not for those who demand overwhelming hop presence. In my book this beer is a classic.

Jado (635) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2015
From 500 ml bottle. Pours a clear but dark copper-bronze with a frothy cream coloured head. Aromas of raisins, currants, dates, stewed apple, banana and cinnamon. Taste starts out with cooked apple and pear before rich dark fruit and spice comes through. Ripe banana, more spice and a slight alcohol warmth. Medium bodied with a long finish and a warm spicy aftertaste. Excellent.

Bottle. Dark ruby in colour, great white head. In aroma really lots of clove, then citrus, some banana, yeasts. In taste dried fruit, bananas, malt, some citrusy. Full bodied, meidum bitter finish, alcohol gives warming. Very well done weizenbock, one of the best.

The Everest of Weissbier! One of the most aromatic beers in the World, as The Beer Hunter MJ said. Bottle & Tap in its own glass. Dark ruby blurred color. The foam is huge and persistent. Smell: Clove, banana, yeast, little bit alcohol, and dark fruits such as plum and raisin. Aroma: Bananai plum, and raisin. It warms your mouth while you are drinking it. Very well balanced and highly bodied. Smooth finish in the palate with hints of dark fruits and ripe banana. Must try!

Got this as 2008 vintage. Beer is complex with notes of plum, cherry and spices. Sherry like glass.
