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°

Served from the 500ml Euro-stlye brown bottle. In appearance this a slightly hazy,yet glowing brown colour. Massive frothy white head, furious carbonation in the glass. A very rich creamy ,spicy wheat aroma, banana and caramel aromas too. The flavour is like all the classic German "hefes",bananas ,spices etc but with a nice touch of a dark chocolate,caramel background.A good alcohol taste at the end. A well carbonated mouthfeel,but it feels good on the tongue. The finish is semi-dry, a noticable alcoholic presence in the throat..warming., A very well crafted beer, I liked it .But i doubt i could manage more than one 500ml in a sitting. Yet I will certainlly pick it up again.

Stew41 (1805) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2004
Pours very dark brown tending to black - slightly murky. Nice foamy head retains good form. Nose is a little shy, faint touches of cloves. Flaours of sweet cloves and some alcohol sweetness drive the palate. Nice spicy note in the back palate. Very complete mouthfeel, good length and never get flabby or too sweet. Alcohol is in excellent check. All in all a good beer showing reasonable complexity.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2007 Re-rate. OK, I get it now. Tons of red grape flavor & aroma. Smooth creamy palate and a great finish that keeps me taking sips way to fast. This’ll be a staple in the rotationfrom here on out.

CamdenD (1113) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 24, 2004
Bit of a stale aroma, bock-like I suppose, but aside from that, this beer is wonderful to this guy. Full and smooth, yet without the heavy sweet malt infusion that dominates american bock beers

Kids actually playing nice together in another room, wife in the kitchen making a spicy chicken soup and I’m sitting by the fire watching football while i sip this wonderful bock.

Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2004
Deep amber-red body. Heavy aroma, yeast and fruit. Flavor is delicious…a complex blend of everything that should be in a beer. Well balanced, all the elements really work together in this brew. Breadish in the front, but the subtle fruity/spicy notes come through nicely. Leaves a dry and perfectly bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied, and very enjoyable.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Big bold weizen, yeasty aroma. Dark brown color with a sizeable head that dissipates quickly. Great balance of sweetness, carbonation, malts hops, etc.. Full bodied flavor that ends with smooth semi-bitter aftertaste. I can see why this beer is rated so high.

jzzbassman (1523) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Poured an amber with a fluffy white head. Big aroma like a hefeweizen amplified. Interesting flavor that was hard to pin down with a note of bubblegum that was a bit much for me. However, very nice overall.

A recent addition in Georgia with the higher alcohol laws. Such a nice balance of malt, hops, and clove like spice from the wheat. Well carbonated, which helps bring out the various flavors of this beer. One of my favorites.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2005 A beer that truly grabs you and doesn’t let go, this one is NOT for the casual beer drinker. Don’t let the ’low’ ABV fool you; this one packs a bit of a punch. Should be mandatory for all serious beer drinkers. A biting molasses sweetness is evident from the get go, followed by a mellow alcohol/chocolate mixture that lingers long after the sip is over. Rounds out nicely with a blunt clove finish. Mouthfeel is slick and coating.
