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°

Bottle. Big fluffy off white head that seems to last forever. Nose is very complex--fruit, caramel, raisin, maybe cream soda. Smooth malt flavor with a banana like charcter I hadn't found in a beer before. Warming alcohol level with a sweetish finish. This is a great Weizen Bock--usually I'm turned off by the wheaten wang and the acidic character it brings, but this beer pulls of the wheat with a smooth maltiness that is unmatched.

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2004
Head is not too frothy and short lived. Hazy brown/amber color. Clove aroma with a very distinct clove flavour, hints of nutmeg and other spices. Bitter Malty aftertaste, slightly sweet. Not a fan of wheat beers but this one is alright.

Think Belgian dopplebock. This was *really* good. Poured a nice brown with a large head, but not much lace. Smells wondefuly malty. Tastes malty with a hint of wheat, but it's much more complex. It's sweet but far from being too sweet. Bananas and cloves are the most prevelant taste. Mouthfeel is actually better than either a dopplebock *or* a wheat. It's nice and full without the excess carbonation of a typical Belgian. Drinkability is great, I could easily have several of these.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2011 Deep hazy brown with an initially thick head that quickly fades to a layer of light foam. The aroma is very peppery and fruity initially. There is a distinct figgy/estery fruitiness that reminds me of Trois Pistoles but without the other spicy notes. Cooked banana and a bit of rummy brown sugar character as well. As it warms up the clove really starts to play off the darker malts in here. Soft and fruity with a distinctly noticeable sweet character on the finish. It’s a cold and blustery day out there, and this beer is the perfect antidote. Dark coppery brown colour with a large off-white head that rapidly disappears. Smells like a hefeweizen, with notes of citrus, sweet malt, and yeast. Tastes sweet with rich molasses and brown sugar underneath the citrusy flavours. Medium length malty finish. Very good.

larsniclas (5783) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2004
Bottled. Hazy, dark amber. Huge and firm head. A bit yeasty, spicy; like a wissbier. A bit sweetish with a warm alko-feel. Flavour from fig or some other sweet fruit.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JAN 24, 2004
The color of Indian clay. A fruity aroma with a nice, large head. The flavor is sweet, slightly fruity with hints of caramel and vanilla. A slight touch of alcohol and bitterness on the end. Very tasty.

rgrep (156) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 24, 2004
(21 Jan 04) Very lively, foaming head that disappears quickly. Pours muddy and the colour of milk chocolate. Has aromas of chocolate, spice, and sour green apple. The body is sweet with chocolatey malt notes and a hint of licorice.
