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.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2003 Cloudy mahogany body, huge rocky head. Aroma of yeast, citrus. Carbonated bite in the flavor, with a yeasty feel and notes of banana and clove. Finish is dry and sweet. Alcohol only noticeable at the end. Good.

Big head that fades fast. Aroma of yeasty dough and wheat. Flavor of cola, cider, dough, wheat, and a little dark fruit. The cola like carbination makes it light and very drinkable.

Now here is a bock wheat (er..weizenstarkbeir) that you expect to be blonde, but is really a brune (in this case, the old saying "does the carpet match the curtains" is definitely false). A delightful spice and light malt aromas flood the tastebuds beautifully. Even a hint of dark chocolate on the palate and seems to rub off in the dark rooted blond brew. Apparently the oldest Bavarian brewery, so should have a few more brews in it's stable. Find a six pack, and share with friends as a treat beer.

flemdawg (531) - Naples, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2003
Reddish color, and a fast diminishing head that left a small ring of bubbles. Very wheaty in the aroma with just a hint of maltiness. Smooth mouthfeel. A wheat taste that is balanced by a bitter finish. Not all that special.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 18, 2003
This may be my first beer of this style. Purs a cloudy amber/brown with a thich white head. The smell is of yeast and caramel. The taste is sweet with a nutty aftertaste. A decent brew.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2004 This is one of my favorites. Awesome head, malty fruit aroma, and a taste that I can't live without. I could drink this beer everyday of my life and die happy.

Gigantic Head out of the bottle. Eggshell Billoughy White. Spicy cinnamony flavoring out of bottle. Cotton Candy smell from bottle. Not bad. Smooth definite cinnamon presense. This is a very good beer. I think you'll like it too. No bitter afterfinish at all.

I spilled part of a bottle, and felt like crying. Complex flavors, wheat/hop aftertaste.

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - NOV 4, 2003
My second-favorite beer of all time, second only to Chimay Blue. Very complex, with a spicy aroma that's hard to beat. Clove, licorice, apple, pear, orange peel, malt, toffee, and all that's wonderful. I don't know where they hid the hops. Pours a lovely dark amber/brown. Cloudy but lovely. Big bubbled head that goes to a small bead. Fantastic brew. Yeast makes this one incredible. If I could change anything I'd add a bit more body, but it's still a FINE beer.
