NachlamSie (3230) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2007 Bottle. Pours a dark, hazy red/brown with a nice tan head. The nose is full of clove, banana, more spices, and a dark fruit bouquet. Nice mouthfeel, and a complex, appropriately sweet flavor. Hints of cloves, grapes, banana, thin chocolate, and a weakly tart finish are present. Pretty nice.

Bottle. Ruby brown with little head but fairly gassy. Full bodied with plenty of flavour, similar to a Belgian Trappist.

Appears a a dark hazy red toned brown with red being more noticable towards the bottom of the large wheat glass that it was drawn into. Nice tan head that never truly dies out is a right-on sight. Not a whole lot going on for lacing though. Smell is awesome. Lots of bavarian yeastiness going on and kicking into a hearty wheat with caramel, dark fruit, banana, clove, and a hint of chocolate and bubble gum makes this top notch. The taste is superb, especially this draft version which makes the complex aromas and tastes seem less contained. The mouthfeel is smooth and about medium-full bodied. All the flavors run nicely along the palate without gumming up and becoming cloying. You can keep these coming all night for me on draft. The ABV isn’t as noticable from the draft either. I love this brew!

ancherrera (162) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2005
Dark, ruby and cloudy. The alcohol is very prevelant in both the smell and the taste. Sweet but not overly so. Some bubble gum and coke in the nose. Very complex flavor... malty, hoppy. Lots of carbonation. Finishes sharp on the palate woth lots of alcohol in the after taste...Maybe too much.

Nightfall (1306) - Hamburg, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2006 Found a 500ml bottle in Carrefour Athens. Looked nice (never tried it before) the price was ok so i took a bottle. Wow. it pours a red brown color, with a brownish HUGE head that lasts. Excellent aromas of wheat, malt , nice flavours of plum and spices. Great aftertaste to, kind of sweet&sour (which i really like). An excellent beer !

Having had the eisbock version of this, it was treat to try this normal-strength version. Pours a deep, reddish brown color with a fizzy, tan head that fills up 7/8 of the glass if you are not careful with the pour. I’ve never heard a beer before this one that made the same sound as a soda being poured, but this thing bubbles aggressively. Aroma is excellent, with bubble gum (first time I’ve ever smelled really prominent bubble gum), bananas, clove, wheat, dark malts and fruit. Flavor is dark and hearty, with dark fruit, spices, cloves, with a wheaty finish and just a hint of caramel; very nice. Aroma and flavor both are slightly sour. Lacking a little in the palate arena: It’s amazing how this beer isn’t cloying, but it’s just too thin; indeed, I feel that the lack of body in this beer actually affets the flavor component negatively because it just isn’t thick enough. Overall, this is a wonderful and somewhat unusual style, and this beer is just outstanding.

A strong aroma of dark fruit and malt are accompanied by a hint of banana. The appearance is a rich dark ruby brown with a long lasting tan head. There is considerable lacing. The flavor is a complex combination of dark fruit, malt and roasted banana. The body is creamy and medium.
