Not exactly what I expected, being my second bock after the Paulaner Salvator. Nice earthy flavor, but the aftertaste is not quite my gear. Has a pleasant enough aroma, but, again, this is not really my style. A worthy beer, though.

I broke this out last night in tribute to my newborn baby girl, and drank some with the wife. Wonderful licorice, dark fruit, and some smooth cloves. A great weizen-bock.

Nice dark brown color but not much of a head. Kinda expecting more considering the Top 50 rating. Very good, nice balance just didn’t knock me out like I thought it would.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2003 Dark reddish brown, like strong cloudy tea. Easy head had fairly large, soda-like bubbles form the head, but without the fizziness. As for taste, it's got the same strong esteriness of the Schneider weisse with the richer slight caramelly taste from the darker malts. Finishes with cloves. Tasty.

The beer is very dark with a beautiful colour. The experience is total when you drink it. The smell, the taste eg. is so wonderful! Bitter and light at the same time!

This might just be the greatest beer I’ve had yet. A wonderful fruit flavor, with hints of raisins, cloves, and I think caramel. A very nice wheat taste as well for an all around excellent beer. Track this one down and drink heavily.

Re-Rate: I really love this beer! A thick, malty double that goes down smooth.
My only complaint upon re-rate was that it left a little sludgy residue in the bottom of my glass.
