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°

(Bottle). Theoretically I might encounter a better Weizen than this one, but I doubt very much that will ever happen. Murky brown colour, large head, aroma of Paradise: Cloves and other undefinable spices, dried fruits (figs), oak and sandalwood. Oaky cloves flavour with hints of burnt caramel. Alcohol is present, but not overwhelmingly so. Dry aftertaste. This is a thoroughly well made beer! (Thanks, joss!)

This is Great beer. The alcohol is the first thing I noticed in the nose, then comes the bubblegum estery aroma. It pours redish brown with a short lived head. Very rich and smooth, not too sweet (or cloying), very warming with that wonderful Barvarian yeast flavor. Well balanced. I can just about chew this beer. Weizenbocks just don't get any better than this.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2003 This a Great Wheat Bock beer. Impressive head and a malty ultra smooth flavor with nice yeasty tones overall. Comes off better on the warm side. Great with german food.

joemacaluso (119) - Prairieville, Louisiana, USA - APR 11, 2003
Great beer, beats Mahr's by a long shot. Not as many different tastes, but nice and malty, slightly sour(not much) touch of alcaholic warmness. Very smooth, easy to drink for such a strong beer. Great beer.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2003
On tap at the Steinkeller. A rich, dark wheat bursting with banana-flavored esters and sweet malts. Definitely in the top echelon of wheats. A return visit is already in the works.

I haven't had an orifice-related experience like this since last time Stan came to visit from Walgett!

Frank (2862) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2005 Dark, murky, ever-so-faintly reddish brown. Creamy white head. Spotty lacing. This is an intense beer. Reminds me more of some of the yeastier belgian styles than it does an ordinary German wheat. Strongly spicy aroma--loaded with cloves with some fruity yeast esters as well. Full, round body. Creamy carbonation. Has a sharp, slightly tart bite up front. Sweetens as the beer progresses. Toffee, caramel, cloves, and brown sugar come to the fore. A warming alcohol presence helps hold things together. Short, slightly sweet, slightly hoppy finish. Leaves a bit of sticky residue on the tongue. Easily my favorite wheat beer I have tried to date.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 7, 2003
Belgian, spicy aroma. Pours an amber brown, mid-range carbonation with a thick head. The mouthfeel starts off slow but becomes more complex as you drink it. The alcohol is dominant throughout,resulting in a drink that packs quite a wallop. A satisfying sipping beer.

Ludwig (60) - USA - APR 6, 2003
This is one wonderful beer. Best served from bottle, not tap !! Leave about an inch in the bottle and shake it real hard then pour the remaining amount in your glass this will distribute the yeast.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 5, 2003
This wonderful beer poured a deep brown color with a medium head that quickly dissapated and lingered in bubbles upon the surface. The nose is floral with hints of spice and wood. A tingly carbonation on the tongue and a medium body. Hints of plum and a woody earthiness arose with some sour notes followed by cloves. A warming quality yet fully refreshin and fullfilling. A great beer!! Deserving of the overall rating.
