UPDATED: MAR 27, 2005 Deep cloudy amber color. Pours with a healthy head that settles. Good bold flavor - sharp & biting, but not too harsh. Alcohol taste is well balanced with spicy semi-sweet overtones and rich fruit. [$2.89/16oz]

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2005 Pours an amazing dark mahogany with a very tall long standing white head, very clear. Aroma starts with sweet malt up front and a wheat spice following and some fruity esters. The flavors starts with a flowing doppelbock sweetness, rich caramel flavors and notes of licorice are followed by wheat and a spicy finish. The yeast adds notes of clove and fruit leading into a very well balanced finish.

GiBrew (171) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 12, 2005
Pours dark brown, very cloudy. Very foamy head - The kind of beer that foams right-up even if you try not to pour any head... Grapefruit and pineapple aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Sweet fruit flavours with a hint of ginger. Mild alcohol finish. What a Treat!!!

rederic (3253) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2005
Dark amber hazy hue, with a light and thin foamy head, with a multitude of sparkling small bubbles due to the méthode champenoise used. The nose is very fruity of raisin, plum, fig with a clovey spiciness touch, in the aroma, follows through a medium-bodied palate with a fruity-raisiny, dark fruits and sweet malted flavors, leading to a chocolaty accent marrying the clovey aspect in a alcoholic warmth finish.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 RATING # 1000!: Big clovey, banana, yeast nose. Deep cloudy ruby colour. Big, compact, lasting ruddy head. This is one of my all time favorites. I cant help but give this high marks. Big clovey, banana, faint caramel, toffee, cocoa, phenols, soft luxurious mouthfeel. Pleasantlly bitter yeasty finish, with subdued alcohol. This is a total classic. The representation of the weizen bock style. Perfection...one of my absolute favorites. One aday will keep em all away.

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Cellar Temp. Great aroma of dark fruit, cloves, and molasses. Reddish brown with a effervescent white head. Very complex robust flavors of dominated by cloves and dark spices in a background of unripe berries. Light bodied and highly carbonated. Finish is very clean with just traces of alchohol and brown sugar.

GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2005
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.
