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

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 24, 2005
Pours with huge creamy tan head than lasts and lasts. Color looks cloudy brown in glass until held up to the light where it looks more clear and red. Looks great in the glass. Aroma is banana, clove, yeast, and malt. This is flavorful stuff. It is moderately sweet, moderately bitter, with caramel, fruit, and some spice to it. Finish has a light alcohol note. This has a great mouthfeel, initial full body but finishes light and fizzy. Pretty good stuff I will be re-rating sometime in the future.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2005
Comes out of the bottle very thick and creamy with a powerful head. The taste is a blend of cloves, malt, and caramel. Pleasant and long-lasting.

EKGoldings (603) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2005
This one is up there with the best beers that I have ever had. Rich and complex, and even better than the concentrated version which I find a bit hot (alcoholic tasting) unless chilled.

BillyM (151) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 19, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2005 Deep cloudy amber color. Pours with a healthy head that settles. Good bold flavor - sharp & biting, but not too harsh. Alcohol taste is well balanced with spicy semi-sweet overtones and rich fruit. [$2.89/16oz]

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2005 Pours an amazing dark mahogany with a very tall long standing white head, very clear. Aroma starts with sweet malt up front and a wheat spice following and some fruity esters. The flavors starts with a flowing doppelbock sweetness, rich caramel flavors and notes of licorice are followed by wheat and a spicy finish. The yeast adds notes of clove and fruit leading into a very well balanced finish.

GiBrew (171) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 12, 2005
Pours dark brown, very cloudy. Very foamy head - The kind of beer that foams right-up even if you try not to pour any head... Grapefruit and pineapple aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Sweet fruit flavours with a hint of ginger. Mild alcohol finish. What a Treat!!!

rederic (3200) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2005
Dark amber hazy hue, with a light and thin foamy head, with a multitude of sparkling small bubbles due to the méthode champenoise used. The nose is very fruity of raisin, plum, fig with a clovey spiciness touch, in the aroma, follows through a medium-bodied palate with a fruity-raisiny, dark fruits and sweet malted flavors, leading to a chocolaty accent marrying the clovey aspect in a alcoholic warmth finish.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 RATING # 1000!: Big clovey, banana, yeast nose. Deep cloudy ruby colour. Big, compact, lasting ruddy head. This is one of my all time favorites. I cant help but give this high marks. Big clovey, banana, faint caramel, toffee, cocoa, phenols, soft luxurious mouthfeel. Pleasantlly bitter yeasty finish, with subdued alcohol. This is a total classic. The representation of the weizen bock style. Perfection...one of my absolute favorites. One aday will keep em all away.
