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°

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2005 Pouring out a strangely earthy brown color, there was a thin light brown head that quickly transformed into a glass-encircling halo. Little carbonation. The aroma was acrid, almost vinegary. Despite all that, the taste wasn’t bad... not "gentle" as the commercial description states, but a strong sour fruit flavor with a touch of spices... perhaps even cloves, as the com-desc suggests. Tart, sour finish.

RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2004
Bottled at Microbar, Battersea. A big thick, white head and dark golden brown colour. Banana and toffee in the aroma, some clove. A nice rich beer, slightly sweet. Couldn’t guess it was 8%.

Bottle. Hazy, ruby red color with a dissapointing tan head. Be sure and swirl the bottom of the bottle to attempt to get such a head as is in the picture. Aroma of banana, clove, leather, caramel and a bit of mold. VERY complex flavors matching the aroma and adding a yeasty componant with a bit of chalk. Spritzey rich mouth feel with a satisfying bitterness and alcohol bite. The benchmark for the style, Aventinus remains the champion.

Easy drink, fairly bitter at the end. Strong clove taste evident. I’d probably have this one again, just not often.

Hugerat (452) - somerville, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Prettz good beer, though I expected a little more. Really does taste like a cross between a dunkles Hefeweizen and a Bock. Flavors of banana, plumbs and cloves. Quite smooth.

Wow, what a great surprise and combination of flavors! A high alcohol content without an overpowering taste, a deep reddish colored hue, solidly built head, a bit cloudy in appearance, sweet aroma and wonderfully complex palate. A very fine choice that’s well done.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2004 I continuually re-rate this one and now it is amongst my favorites. Perfect every time. smells like sweet cloves and tastes like banana, caramel, cola, wood, and a hint of cigar! Fantastically well pitched flavour! I am so surprised to have discovered this beer. Hooray for Germany!

One of the all-time favourites. Very complex and really fresh. Beware of the alcohol, though ;-)

An excellent beer. Has a wonderful dark brown color, and a large foam head. Lots of tastes in this one. Sweet, with a slight taste of alcohol. A very smooth beer with hints of fruit and caramel, among other things.

very brown and cloudy with an impressive white foam topper. wonderful aroma of dark fruit, allspice. Pear nectar, spiced cider,sweet but not cloying and just sour enough. Really a special beer
