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°

rlgk (10257) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2004
Really hazy. Aroma is yeasty, with nutty notes in it. Reminds me quite a lot of a weissbier. Yeast is in the flavor as well. Sour and rather spicy, maybe too spicy, from pepper.

Cloudy brown dark amber. The off-white head is huge and rocky. Sweet banana clove aroma with hints of wheat. The flavor complements the aroma very well, sweet wheat and banana flavor. The body is silky smooth with and adds a sweet coating to the teeth. A very nice beer.
