Bottle. Pours a hazed dark coppery brown with a moderate off-white head that diminishes quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of sweet dark wheat bread with molasses and lightly floral hops. Spicy sweet flavor, clove, souring dark fruit, yeast and pepper in the finish. Medium body and bountiful carbonation.

Dark brown and opaque from my yeast-including pour, with a nice foamy head that receded to a thick cover and lasted. Strong, spicy clove and banana cream pie aroma with loads of sweet malt--wow! The flavour is a continuation of the so inviting aroma: spicy clove phenolics with black pepper juxtaposed with sweet, malty banana esters. A little bitterness and a bit sweet, but not cloyingly so. Medium to full body and highly carbonated. Packed with flavour!

A real stand out aroma that has almost a apple cider smell. Appearance is a tea colored brown with a gloomy amount of sediment floating. In order for me to create the head i had to pour the beer hard and even after that it dissappeared into a bare headless beer. The flavor has a okay caramel malt added with a touch of spicey yeast and a aftertaste of bitter. A little warming presence of alcohol, but still i didn’t enjoy this all to much

I did not enjoy this one as much as I’d thought. Yeast abounds and the citrus distracts fromt he beer. Caramel and barley malts come through unerneath. Pours red with a thick, lasting head. Great legs. Excellent carbonation.

a nutbrown liquid with a fast diminishing head. The aroma is malty wich goes for the flavour as well. An almost fruity maltiness is outlasted by the woody/slightly smoked aftertaste. It’s an extrodinary weissenbock and it leaves Erdingers version in the kindergarten. My beerpusher told me it was invented by a woman. If I’d known her i’d sent her a bunch of flowers and a box of chocolate!!!

Unpasteurized, unfiltered with top fermantation yeast that settled to the bottom of the bottle. I wish I could tell when this one was bottled, since it’s truly a "live" beer that matures and ripens. Anyway, however ripe this one was, it would be hard to imagine it getting any better with age. Beautiful dark red-brown pour, with an incredible tan head that lasted well; and yet it kept a nice carbonation throughout. Rich, almost warm smells of baked figs(?) and malt. Really an adventure in beer: all that malt and all that wheat, and hardly any hops -- just the way I like it. A kind of nutty, unsweetened cocoa; a hint of raspberry; some smoke: a ton of flavor mixed in a very smoooth nectar with an almost clove-like finish. I loved the last bit -- followed the instructions I was given and left a couple ounces in the bottom and swirled it at the end to pick up the yeast -- what an amazing flavor that was! Overall, this is definitely a massive "WOW!" beer! One to savor. 500ml bottle definitely worth the $2.79 price!! I only wish I’d bought ten!

Becareful while pouring this beer as it can produce a big head. I really think this beer should produce a more heady aroma, but it is on par w/ most crafted beers. Very nice dark pour. The taste is fantabulous. A big, well balanced, sweet flavor with a strong chocolate flavor, balanced with a slight spice flavor on the tip of the tongue. Can taste the alcohol content w/o it being in your face. Very nice after taste. Wile the beer looks deceptively watery, the mouth feel is a chewy thickness ascociated with wheat beers. Do not drink this beer too cold as it will mute the big flavor. This beer is a staple for many dark beer drinkers.

pours a massive head initially, then drops after a few minutes, to near nothing (hardly any lacing for me at all). yeasty, and definately pushing more to wheat than bock... but not too bad. i’d have gave the flavor more points if it had a better balance of wheat/bock flavors... the wheat flavors kinda took me off guard.
