COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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°

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2003 An absolutely beautiful murky orange/dark brown color that can only come from this style of beer...of course, a massive tan head. The aroma was very sweet...full of banana/clove (I actually confuse those two often), subtle alcohol, some wood tones. The flavor was very sweet...clove, bubblegum, banana, alcohol (well hidden), and at times I got some great vanilla chocolate flavors. The feel was soft, bubbly, very smooth. Fantastic beer.

As far as I could tell this is the same beer as Ommegang Hennepin. I really enjoyed it, but it tasted exactly the same.

redlem (1296) - Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2003
Hazy dark brown with a large creamy uneven offwhite head. Big clove, yeast, and banana aroma. I found the noticable alcohol taste an unwelcome intruder that distracted from the other flavors of this beer. Perhaps I should try again when I am in a more tolerable mood but I see no reason to.

obxdude10 (1971) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2003
Ruby red in color, kept an awesome off-white head throughout the half liter, full body, a floral hint in the aroma as well as the aftertaste, very smooth, very drinkable, I would have drank this all night but there were others that I needed to try while I was at Ludwig's Garten in Philly, outstanding weizen bock!

Sigmund (4814) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 27, 2003
(Bottle). Theoretically I might encounter a better Weizen than this one, but I doubt very much that will ever happen. Murky brown colour, large head, aroma of Paradise: Cloves and other undefinable spices, dried fruits (figs), oak and sandalwood. Oaky cloves flavour with hints of burnt caramel. Alcohol is present, but not overwhelmingly so. Dry aftertaste. This is a thoroughly well made beer! (Thanks, joss!)

beerbastard (639) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 17, 2003
This is Great beer. The alcohol is the first thing I noticed in the nose, then comes the bubblegum estery aroma. It pours redish brown with a short lived head. Very rich and smooth, not too sweet (or cloying), very warming with that wonderful Barvarian yeast flavor. Well balanced. I can just about chew this beer. Weizenbocks just don't get any better than this.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2003 This a Great Wheat Bock beer. Impressive head and a malty ultra smooth flavor with nice yeasty tones overall. Comes off better on the warm side. Great with german food.

joemacaluso (119) - Prairieville, Louisiana, USA - APR 11, 2003
Great beer, beats Mahr's by a long shot. Not as many different tastes, but nice and malty, slightly sour(not much) touch of alcaholic warmness. Very smooth, easy to drink for such a strong beer. Great beer.

Silphium (3158) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2003
On tap at the Steinkeller. A rich, dark wheat bursting with banana-flavored esters and sweet malts. Definitely in the top echelon of wheats. A return visit is already in the works.

I haven't had an orifice-related experience like this since last time Stan came to visit from Walgett!
