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°

Dark brown muddy water appearance with a decent creamy off white head. Wheat and orangey aroma. Sweetish wheat, orange and yeasty taste. A decent wheat beer.

Cloudy amber color, tall foamy head. Fruit, wheat, yeast and banana aroma. Flavor is quite heavy, wheat, spices and strong banana tones. Smooth and complex.

Mmmm....I realized this was highly rated before trying it but still didn't completely expect to like it as much as I did. The only other Weisse Bock I've rated was nowhere near this balanced or complex. I still really liked it though so maybe this is a style I have a preference for. Anyway, this one has spice and sweetness and creaminess and warming alcohol and wheat and slight fruit and slight caramel and a beautiful smooth finish with lots of banana. Nice.

CEZ (403) - Milano, ITALY - FEB 20, 2004
Beautiful brown body, rich fizzy head, not very lasting. No lace left on the glass. Caramel, candied fruit, yeast and also a hint of alcohol in the nose. Same sweetness in the taste, with a slight hoppy sting in the finish. Creamy mouthfeel; heavy carbonated. I still liked the other weizenbock I had this winter better ("La Speciale dell'Officina"), but that one was a "microbrewed" live beer, and hence definitely fresher... This one is almost as good but I expected it to be a little more complex. Strong alcohol character: this beer can be refreshing AND warm at the same time!

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2004
Nice froathy head on top of a dark brown/reddish color. Aroma is a sweeter wheat with hints of citrus and clove. Flavor is strongly sweet, yet still posses the nice wheat character, a definite strong fruity feel to it as well. Similar to its brother, this seems strongly like a good belgian strong ale, which makes it even more complex.

A great example of a Wiezen bock, with exceptional complexity. A bit hot in the initial taste, but the alcohol gives way to a wonderful caramel and clove flavor. The carbonation is aggressive but suites this beer well.

Braudog (5975) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 13, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2005 Dark, dark brown with a shiny red patena and a steady head. Yeasty aroma. Elegantly smooth and lightly sweet. Vaguely yeast-based, with molasses character. Sweetness grows as you go. Very good.

Dark red, huge coral head. Aroma is primarily yeasty some esters. Flavour is huge, though with admirable constraint. Malty caramel covers the tongue completely backed up by some subtle herbs, nice bitter finish. Soft creamy palate, though full bodied. This one's a winner. Bottle.
