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°

This beer poured a murky brown color and formed a huge, I mean huge, foamy off white head that retained for quite awhile. Heavy amount of carbonation present. An aroma of clove, citrus and malt. The flavor was of clove and malt.

TheTsunami (162) - Arizona, USA - JAN 25, 2003
This beer lived up to the commercial description. Head on a 3 oz. pour took at least 2 mins. to die. Strong clove aroma. Full bodied. However I didn't notice any sort of sour finish. Just spicy slightly dry aftertaste.

Boy I'm not the guy to rate a wheat beer. This one seems very much like the Commercial Description. Stron clove like flavor. Brown color and very hazy. I don't taste the carmel at all, sure wish I could. I haven't had an IPA with a flavor as pronounced as the ones. I think if you read the description and it appeals to you as does wheat beers, you are going to love this one. I don't and I didn't.

Yeasty, sharp apple nose... very nice. Gentle mouthfeel; soft up front, somewhat crisp near the finish. Nice amount of carbonation. Sweet malts complemented by a roastiness and a mild bitterness in the finish. Apple and banana notes here and there; maybe even a touch of bubblegum too. Extremely well-balanced and complex, yet easy to drink and enjoy.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2003 Wow! Did i mention...Wow?? One of my favorite beers. Nice Belgian wheat smell with a great bock flavor. Reddish merlot color. Lingering maltiness and very sweet. One of the best.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JAN 20, 2003
Very complex. Nice maltiness in the nose, bit citrusy and sweet. Good fruitiness in the flavor, banana and lemon predominate. Slightly wit-esque in its clove spiciness, but restrained enough to not overpower. Big, big malts finish up. Great palate, nicely creamy and full.

Tremendous beer in the fashion. Failed to read the abv on this beer until a guest pointed out that it seemed pretty strong. Just terrific.

3fourths (7889) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 Rich, sweet, complex, refreshing while still appearing big... the fruity easters are unimaginable. So complex, it’s behavior changes every time I drink this beer. A wonderful wheat beer that deserves a new rating from me.

What a fine, fine beer! I wasn""t expecting to like this beer as much as I did. Complex doesn""t begin to describe it. Pours out to a plum darkness in the glass with a light brown head that reminds you of brown sugar. The aroma is that of fruit. The taste. Man, the taste. Where to begin? Initially, there is a presence of nutmeg, cloves and banana, much like a regular wheat beer. But just when you think this is what you get, the beer transforms as it warms and the clove/banana taste leaves and a warm fruit taste of raisons takes over. A wonderful beer that truly hides the 8% ABV very well.
