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°

Strong chewing gum and cinnamon in the aroma. Flavor of wheat and yeast. Very artificial palate. Some pepper in finish.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2004
German's like a lot of head and this one is no different, but it goes down quickly. Amber colored beer. The head is quite foamy and off white, diminishes quite quickly. Smells of coriander, orange, licorice, and definitely cloves, sour milk. Some banana/bubble gum smell as well. Sour, tanginess to the flavor, banana/bubble gum, burnt marshmallow. Very nice. This is the first Weizen Bock that I have tried and it definitely has characteristics of both types. Nice. Different.

RobBestwick (587) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2004
orangery/wheaty aroma, cloudy brown in colour with a frothy off white head, very sweet orangey and wheaty flavour, far too sweet, i cant enjoy this.

Trogdor (196) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2004 sweet fruit, almost winey with wheat on the nose, cola/ruby appearance with creamy head and body, belgian strong ale complexity of flavour, with faint alcohol taste, good bittering with wheat and stonefruit being the dominating flavours.

ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Cloves and bananas are what hit my nose. Reddish brown in color, cloudy from the yeast, with a big head. Drinking it from an authentic Aventinus glass, the yeasty, clove/banana aroma continues to dominate the taste with some maltiness. The body is perfect, it has some fullness, initially, as it coats your mouth and then it quickly dissapates with malty/wiesse/banana undertones left on the tongue.

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2003
trully a well balanced bockbeer, with a dark reddishbrown colour, lovely creamy foam. Due to the weizen the taste is at first a little sweeter than expected, but the hoppiy finish is one of the best i ever had.

maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2003
This beer has a brown body - hue apperance and a fine white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is sweet-bitter.

EdPaulsen (117) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 23, 2003
don't love this stuff as much as i used to...tastes like cotton candy. sweet malt with sweet wheat and banana tastes, the roasty taste mixed with the carbonation, and depth though make it very tasty

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Fizzy head. Murky brown appearance. Slight yeast aroma. Bubbly flavor rich with yeastiness and banana flavors. Feels tingly on the tongue. Fairly good dunkel, and alcohol is well disguised.
