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: NOV 13, 2005 pours dark ruby with a gargantuan head. the aromas of banana and clove that I associate with most wheat beers are here, but less dominant, allowing richer aromas of fruit cake and raisins and berrys to come through. pleasant mouthfeel with a refreshing finish despite the alcohol content.

When I found this beer in a cooler of a convenience store in a small Thai town, I filled my pants and my shopping basket. My glass was filled with a sweet malty aroma; the color and head were as per above photo, with the flavor similar to a malted coke float. Certain sips were almost salty, but I have no idea what the bottle I bought had been through prior to arriving in my living room. Perhaps customs doctored the mixture with a hint of fish sauce. Even so, it was a real treat.

This beer pours a cloudy caramel amber color with a lasting, lacing white head. The aroma is a unique blend of spicey lager yeast, fruity ale yeast, and estery hefe yeast. Behind all that is a thick sweet raisin/caramel malt aroma that lingers. The malt sweetness dominates the flavor, drifting between raisin caramel malt and sweet wheat malt before giving way to a yeast finish. The beer is viscuous on the tongue and finishes warmly. This beer definitely takes the winter chill away, and likely the winter blues, as well.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 I’ve recently changed my mind about this brew - it’s quite good. The biggest selling feature for me is the colour - a purplish brew that screams raisins and other delights. Huge frothy head and wonderful taste...I will get this again!

This is simply one of my favourite beers, and one that I don’t really think has the reputation that it should have. It’s an absolute beauty, loaded with flavour - fruits, malts, wheat and just a touch of bitterness to counter the sweetness. Fantastic, and a relative bargain.

Dark/brown, opaque with a huge white head. Aroma is yeasty and fruity (humm! ripe banana), with roasted malts. Flavor starts sweet with ripe banana striking back, a nice spicy touch (essentially clove and cinnamon) it then evolves to something more malty and finishes on a kind of whiskey/bourbon aftertaste. A very tasty medium-bodied beer.

Dark reddish brown with a VOLCANIC white head, takes a few minutes to pour. Clove, banana and some smoke in the nose. Taste also has notes up front of wheat, clove, yeast/fruity esters and banana - on the back end, flavors of roasted malt and caramel come through. Alcohol content very well hidden. Medium smooth, body with lively carbonation. No lacing but great head retention. Very nice stuff.

16.9 oz bottle. another cryptic date code.
pours a cloudy dark brown with a huge soapy tanish head.
Active carbonation. Aroma is clove, feint bannana, caramel, and prunes.
Flavor is spicy, malty and fruity. like a Captain & Coke allowed to warm before drinking. Just enough wheat in there to add some texture.
finish is slightly sweet with plummy flavors and just a touch of bitterness.
Watch out tho. This beer goes down amazingly easy for an 8%
