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°

really nice cloudy ruby/burgundy color, standard rich head. Bananas, cloves, Jucyfruit gum aroma. Taste sweet, wheaty, spicy. Slightly fizzy mouth feel, but rich and malty. An extremely crisp finish, but just maybe a tad sweet at the very end for me. This, however, is an excellent beer, and probably the best of its style. Prost!

Cloudy (obviously!) auburn, with banana notes in aroma. Sweet, caramel body gives way to a clean crisp finish. One of my favourite beers from a favoured style.

GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - AUG 17, 2003
Drinking this beer remindes me of the Munich beer halls. It's medium brown in color with a nice frothy head. Has a very sweet taste. Taste fruits like plums, grapes. Carmel is also tasted.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2003
Different. Cloudy, medium brew. Nice aroma - definitely clove spiced. Fizzy, course bubbles. Strong brew (8%ABV). Clove like finish, wheat flavor. Enjoyable, but, would not want to drink more than one big bottle at a time. Good winter type beer.

Hazy dark brown with vigorous head. Sweet yeasty aroma. Flavors of sweet malt and yeast. More weissbier than bock.

PorterPounder (5346) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2003
The pour is chestnut brown and cloudy and finishes with a bit of yeasty sediment. Has a quickly dissipating fizzy off-white head. The aroma is a little bit of citrus and cloves with a yeasty undertone. The alcohol is prevalent amd masks the nutty maltiness that it is trying to deliver. It does not ruin this, but it is what comes through the strongest. A little bit of yeast mingling with caramel in the aftertaste. Velvety smooth mouthfeel - would be excellent in the winter.
