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°

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2007 1 pt bottle - Fairly cloudy deep brown color with smallish creamy off white head. Aroma has fair amount of bananna, clove, touch of dark chocolate, toasted caramel, grains of paradise, hint of vanilla, mint leaf, oak chips. Flavor is very malty, with chewy caramel, touch of bananna, red grapes, vanilla bean, mildly sweet finish.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2004 1999 Paper-Wrapped Vintage:
Dark brown coloured body with violet and crimson hues toward the bottom. Frothy off-white head that dies down quickly, but you have to expect that with a 5 year old bottle. Aroma of roasted malt, raisins, figs and some light spices. Medium-bodied; Mild taste of pit fruits, nuts, a twang of coffee and a decent amount of spices, but much less than a normal (fresh) bottle. Aftertaste lingers, but fades off unusually quickly. Overall, this beer is a great doppelbock, but after 5 years, lost its touch...I wouldn’t give this bottle so long next time. I sampled this 50 cL paper-wrapepd bottle, from 1999 purchased at Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York on 10-December-2004.

Very light and grainy in the nose, but it pours a wicked murky brown with a thin head that dissapears quick. The taste is an awesome blend. Spicey, but not overpowering, sweet, but not cloying, hopped, but not blindingly bitter. A very, very well balanced beer, never any blatant alcohol tinges for such a strong beer, this is a wonderful dark wheat.

Slightly cloudy dark amber appearance. Nice plum-like aroma. The flavor starts very strongly with the banana clove flavor from the yeast with a alcohol flavor also present. Finish is slightly tart but very pleasent. Only bad thing was the high level of carbonation. Maybe this varies since it’s bottle fermented.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - JAN 3, 2003
One of my favorites. Used to be my second favorite (behind Kasteel Bruin), but after my beer tasting vacation, it may drop down a little. Nice rich, spicy beer with all the flavors of a good hefeweizen a dopplebock combined. It’s not as sweet as a dopplebock though. Excellent beer

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 2, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2003 The only drawback to this was that the bock maltiness covered up the expected spiciness of the wheat style. Very dark. very colourful. Good head.

Musty purple brown colour. Caramelized bananas blend perfectly with the wheat in the nose. Lingering halo around the glass, with constant bubbles. Creamy and sweet, with just a hint of banana, just enough for a good flavour, even though I don’t generally like banana flavour. Great balance of yeast, malt, spices (cloves), and sweet honey and caramel. Mouth watering finish.

Foxbush (1250) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2011 When poured a large head formed and it slowly disipated. Clovish flavor and aroma. A full bodied beer. The more I drank the more it grew on me.

Poured a big head but it didn’t last. Dark brown with ruby tones. Had a big chunk of yeast on the bottom which I swirled off. Has the typical-for-the-style banana, yeast flavors. Alcohol well hidden. Very good.
