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°

I like the body creamy, soft like a deep red velvet. Light bitter in the initial flavor and changes to something almost sweet.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2007 Pours a deep brown with a lively & fizzing tan head. Beautiful aroma of sweet rasiny fruity alcohol & yeast. Has a solid malt character, with fruity suggestions of plums, raisins and a slight touch of banana. Finishes with a smooth toffee like flavor. Very nice.

500 ml bottle. Huge expansive white frothy creamy head tops off a clear medium amber brown ale. Efervescent carbonation. Head stays there tilll the end. Malty, bready toast aroma backed by earthy hop spices and cloves. Very inviting. Smooth malty sweetness up front just barely balanced by hop bitterness -- to the sweet side but not cloying. Alcohol warmth in nose in mouth after swallow. Lingering clove but very clean. If you want a sharper version make sure you pour the yeast at the bottom of the bottle - for a softer version leave the last bit of beer in the bottle. Your choice but makes quite a difference.

Pleasant fruit aroma. Mostly plums, and coriander. Can definitely taste the wheat throughout this. Nice color, but not nearly as ruby red as advertised. Nice beer, but too sweet for my taste.

Hazy brown color with off white head. Strong aroma of sweet malts, wheat, prunes and dates. Lots of carbonation. Flavor of sweet fruit, sweet malts, wheat and coriander spice. The wheat flavor lingers into the finish.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2006 500ml bottle. I’m not usually a fan of wheat beers, but I think this is because I had a few bad ones and avoided them since. This beer has changed my mind completely. After opening the bottle I’m hit with the strong aroma of bananas, bubblegum, and over-ripe apples. It pours a deep reddish brown with a very thick-off white head, and the aroma just gets stronger. The flavor itself didn’t have as much of the banana that the aroma seemed to be promising, instead sharing the flavor with more bubblegum, ripe fruits, cloves, and a hint of anise. The finish was smooth and oily, but not so thick that it wasn’t easy to drink. The rater below me hit the nail on the head... the flavor - especially the aftertaste - was extremely reminiscent of Trois Pistoles. One of my new favorite beers. Just awesome.

Yum. Nice mammoth head. Very carbonated beer. Nice reddish rust-like color. Taste is awesome. Very belgian like. Reminds me of Trois Pistoles in flavor. Yeast, banana, spice. Some alcohol burn. Very very good stuff.

Thick off white head dominates along with a clear dark reddish brown appearance. Soft yeasty aroma of rising bread dough. Yeast, tart citrus, banana, and a sweet/sour maple taste along with some alcohol in the throat. Smooth and nice like a weizen should be, yet with interesting flavors and a kick.
