Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2004
Deep amber-red body. Heavy aroma, yeast and fruit. Flavor is delicious…a complex blend of everything that should be in a beer. Well balanced, all the elements really work together in this brew. Breadish in the front, but the subtle fruity/spicy notes come through nicely. Leaves a dry and perfectly bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied, and very enjoyable.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Big bold weizen, yeasty aroma. Dark brown color with a sizeable head that dissipates quickly. Great balance of sweetness, carbonation, malts hops, etc.. Full bodied flavor that ends with smooth semi-bitter aftertaste. I can see why this beer is rated so high.

jzzbassman (1557) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Poured an amber with a fluffy white head. Big aroma like a hefeweizen amplified. Interesting flavor that was hard to pin down with a note of bubblegum that was a bit much for me. However, very nice overall.

A recent addition in Georgia with the higher alcohol laws. Such a nice balance of malt, hops, and clove like spice from the wheat. Well carbonated, which helps bring out the various flavors of this beer. One of my favorites.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 12, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2005 A beer that truly grabs you and doesn’t let go, this one is NOT for the casual beer drinker. Don’t let the ’low’ ABV fool you; this one packs a bit of a punch. Should be mandatory for all serious beer drinkers. A biting molasses sweetness is evident from the get go, followed by a mellow alcohol/chocolate mixture that lingers long after the sip is over. Rounds out nicely with a blunt clove finish. Mouthfeel is slick and coating.

One of my all time favorites...apparently I suppose considering it’s the first I’ve chosen to rank here. I had this for the first time at a pub in Austin a few years ago and it was an experience. The most perfect balance of sweetness, carbonation, and alcohol. If anyone knows where to get this on tap in Texas please let me know.

An excellent offering by Aventus, easily the best bocks I have ever had. The balance of sweetness and dopplebock flavoring was uncanny. Delightful on the palate, grapes and smooth malt taste throughout. Transition also provides an excellent treat, with just the right amount of flavor lingering. I found myself drinking this one way faster then I would have liked to, but I could not resist. This was that damn good! An amazing choice.

meathookjones (245) - Sterling, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2004
I had this on tap at Cogan’s Instant Art Bar in Norfolk, Virginia. This came out a cloudy darker brown color with red highlights and a good-sized light tan head that rose out of the glass. Fantastic aromas rise out of this beer with dark fruits, bready malt and that yeasty wheat smell being at the forefront. There are also slight notes of smoke and chocolate. The taste starts of with slightly sweet fruits and a good amount of carbonation as well. There was a good malt flavor over the middle before a slight bit of hops and wheat come in at the end. This has a full creamy body and good carbonation. Very drinkable as well with 3 or 4 tall glasses easily going down in one sitting. Excellent beer that is highly recommended especially on tap if you can find it.

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2004
Hazy brown, large white head. Very yeasty, typical bubblegumtaste, sweet, getting sweeter towards the end. A bit overcarbonated, but otherwise excellent brew

Hazy brown colour with a white head. Yeasty aroma with notes of wheat and fruit. Very carbonated. Sweet acidic flavour with notes of fruit and chocolate.
