Poured a cloudy dark brown with a thick, white head. Sweet aroma. tates similar to Trappist dubbel, raisiny and wheaty. A bit more sweetness in the aftertaste, with a hint of alcohol warmth. Syrupy on the palate with a nice light carbonated feel. Excellent beer, very complex.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy, hazy, deep brown/red colour. Lots of lively, mostly lasting tan coloured foamy head. Heavy banana and clove aroma with yeasty notes. Banana, raisin bread, yeasty flavours, with a slight nutty and dark chocolate bitter finish. Medium to full body, thick but dry and smooth moutfeel. Almost like a banana milkshake.

Great hazy brownish/orange color with a nice thick head, good lacing down the glass. Sweet bananas, wood, and cloves in the nose. Sweet woody bananas, and more cloves on the tongue. Warming feeling in the belly. Oh my, one great beer here! Great Fall time beer.

Bottled. A wonderful beer. A perfect synergy of two beer styles: Bock and Weizen. But I have to disagree with some people, who say that the head was fizzy or small. Mine looked really astonishing and took ages to diminish to a drinking-friendly size (yeah, I was a little bit hasty while pouring out the beer). The foam is actually really thick and looks like it can be cut with a knife.

This beer had a wonderful nose, mostly sweet malt, with a little nutty and raisin aroma. Flavor, for once, matched the aroma of the beer. Appearance is dark, orange-brown, with a nice large white head. Palate is oh so smooth. Very impressed.
