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°

You know it’s been 7 years since I have last had this beer and it has left a lasting impression on me. It was a great beer!! I just about bought it today. But I bought others to sample that I have never had. Its was amazing. It was wheaty and bubbly and harsh to the palet but it was still enjoyable I loved it. I should buy this one again really soon!

deep amber, extremely lively carbonation, thick (almost 2") foamy light beige head. the head didnt last the whole beer, but stuck around for most of it. aroma is strong on bubblegum and spices. raisin and other fruity flavors which unfortunately i wasnt able to discern at this drinking.

A good beer to be sure, but not as good as all the hype most of the other raters give it. I have never tried this style before so I was expecting more dopplebock-like qualities... what I got was a slightly more flavorful wheat beer.

No head at all! Bread and glue in the aroma. Sweet, malty taste with banana, mango, bread, cola and butter flavors. Full bodied. Alcohol present, but well hidden. The taste is magnificent, the aroma is limping behind.

This brew was just like the bottle read, very malty and grainy! I liked the melloness of it, and the alcohol was noticed but the flavor of it was not over-powering! Very good.

who knows when: dark existence with a mellow red gleam...off white head started gigantic and bubbley but shrunk considerably...aroma of a bowl of chereos with grain alcohol instead of milk...fizzy start...wheaty with wierd alien tongue tinglers..medicine...berry flavored maple syrup at IHOP...spicy..maybe nutmeg or cloves... a tad sour with a lingering alcohol wheat aftertaste...still not my thing... Re-Rate 11/23/02: clove encrusted banana fumes...very spicy and yeasty, an aroma thats growing on me...yeasty backbone and spicy sweet malty foreground with notes of banana, cherrios, cloves, french toast, and warming heat..I like this beer this time..hell i dont know what i like or dislike anymore..

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2003 What a tremendous beer. Beautiful murky brown with a touch of orange hue, Good off-white head that dissapates into a ring around the edge. Aroma was spicy but mellow with charecters of fall harvest fruits, and bananas that have sat on the counter for a week. Flavor is smooth and flows amazingly well across the palate, starting off with the banana, or mabe even a sweet squash. spices of clove or possibly nutmeg, warminng in the ending with just enough hop to round everything out. an absolute must try for all beer lovers. RE-RATE 2/05/03 After drinking this beer regularly now for a month or so and consuming well over a case I have to give this beer a few extra points. Every bottle has been supurb. I geat a huge head every time even when I accidently chill it too long and it's ice cold. Flavors continue to intrigue me. I have noticed that the clove becomes more apparent in the finish when allowed to warm to around room temp. A great beer.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2008 Sampled for the first time in its trademark glass: Just as refreshing and full-flavored as ever with great banana esters and clove balance throughout. I’ve had a lot of weizenbocks and this is still my favorite.

1999 Aged Version sampled on 11/21/02: Clouded murky brown with a puffy tan head. Complex aroma of sweet caramel and wheat malts with some dark and light fruits. Sweet sticky finish covers the alcohol very well. This seems to have picked up some more complexity over the past 4 years, but nothing too different from its fresh version.

Original Rating: Dark brown with a huge puffy head (see picture). Smells like a really malty wheat beer with the typical banana and clove character. The body is full and a touch spicy with a mellow bittering finish. It warms the inside as it goes down, although the alcohol is masked well in the flavor. I love the yeast as well. Perhaps the best wheat doppelbock ever.

Looks like a brown wheat beer. Tastes like a brown wheat beer. Taste starts with ripe banana; mid taste is wheat, bread, yeast; finish with spice. Bread, yeast, and clovey spice become more pronounced as the beer warms. Definitely a favorite, maybe my favorite German. Hides the alcohol well, but be careful ... it is there.
