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°

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.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2004 Bottle: Red-brown colour. Sweet, wheaty, banana, little alcohol, a wee bit of smoke? ... Draught: I should have kept ordering Boon oude kriek!

Complex flavor and enjoyable beer. Sweet with hints or caramel and the aroma stays with you a while.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - SEP 4, 2003
Cloudy light brown coloured beer with a small head. Yeast and alcohol aroma. The taste is citrus, fruit and tea. A well balanced beer.

Garnet colored with large frothy offwhite head. Aroma of raisins, caramel, yeast, honey, and malt. Flavor much the same. Very smooth.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2004 Re-rate 7/6/2004. Served on tap in the "correct" glass. Tons of carbonation in a couldy brown body. Brown sugar, cloves in the aroma. The start of the flavor features wheat bread, brown sugar, and deep sweet malt. Finishes with maple leaf bitterness, butter, and plummy malt. Soft and supple mouthfeel from generous carbonation, but it's not harsh. A flavorful but smooth and gentle beer.

1999 brew
Short-lived, fizzy head. Very carbonated. I get a plum and yeast taste with a lot of sweetness. Dunno if this one was too old, but I really didn't enjoy it. 5 / 2 / 5 / 3/ 9

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2007 Beautiful nose, beautiful pour, fantastic head (don’t......stop; don’t..stop; don’t stop)taste reminds me of banana’s & honeycomb on wheat toast, alcohol sensation delightful (oh!yes). Re-rate: taste like honeysuckle and smells like the 60’s: a real ray of sunshine
