She pours dark bronze with beauty and grace, sizzling right at the top. She’s a fragrant one as well, having both floral and overripe fruit aroma. The flavor makes this beer so alluring and refreshing. The sweet heaviness of the malt (raisins, dough, cloves) is offset by the wheat and lively fizzy palate. The heck with this beauty being a "winter wheat". She is ripe for summer in every way. Save her cousin Eisbock for the winter.

JonMoore (1861) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2004
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Poured a dark, cloudy to murky brown. Two inch, stable off-white head. Aroma is banana and cloves with a hint of bubble gum. The taste is quite different from the aroma. Slight alcohol, malty, sweet and spicey, with a slightly bitter finish. Full bodied, smooth, nicely carbonated. Top quality.

An angry head on this thing. pours a cratering head that disapates relatively quickly. pours a cloudy dark brown. head is off white. berry aroma is noticeable while pouring. sweet banana strawberry taste.also has more complex and subtle flavors of caramel and malt. finish is wheaty but maintains a sweetness. very refreshing, and i can feel the warmth from the 8% already. There are so many different things going on in this beer, it has me intrigued. this has some qualities i associate with some of the abbott ales i tried, but not overly so. a wonderfully enjoyable brew.

Whew, this is bad stuff. A foamy head, that quickly collapsed, sat on a very cloudy, dirty brown brew. The first taste was of sour, spoiled fruit. Several more swallows didn’t improve my reaction. The rremainder went down the sink.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2004 This is the Antithesis to the Light Beer. Plums, Nuts, Fruits, Spices are the order of the day with this beer. magnificent dark amber colour but the head didn’t last very long. The Aroma is of Fruit and Berries. The Flavour is Fruity/Berry/Bananaey/Wheaty/and Winey. There was not very much lacing on the glass. The over all palate was a combinatin of sweetness and fruitiness and yeastiness that it combines for a delightfull Hefewiezen experience. Kudos to Schnider & Sohn. Salud!

Dark brown with a tan colored head. Malty, sweet aroma with a hint of banana. Full bodied, well carbonated with a sweet roasted malt flavor. Warming alcoholic finish.

tomxcs (321) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 27, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2005 A chocolate brown color, almost like cola, with a red tint and large, foamy head. Very nice nose of spices, clove and banana. Nice fruity, sweet, chocolatey taste with a slight acidity or sourness. Very nice! This beer is one of my favorites.

Eructoblaster (3024) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2004
Pours a brown muddy body topped with a thick beige head. Rich and complex yeasty nose with hints of spices, vanilla, banana and caramel. Mouthfeel starts with a good carbonation. Taste is vineous and carries some notes of fruits and chocolate. Long and very enjoyable warming final. For years, this is been one of my favorites. Too bad I have now to go to Ontario, USA or Germany to get some samples... Shame on the SAQ!!!

Draft. Brown beer with a big white head. Malt and plum flavors. Light aroma but a bit of a wheat aftertaste. There’s a bit of a wild yeast flavor to this one. Not bad, but it does make itself known the more you drink.

Cloudy Brown Coloring. Big Head. Spice. Fruity. Sweet...Not the worst way to end a day!
