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°

This beer is filled with delight! Aroma of clove spice, apples, bananas and yeast. Flavors are complex and long lasting. Has a clean freshness about it. 8% alc well hidden. Overall, enjoyable. Probably my favorite weizen bock.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2005 Bottle. Really nice, wheat/fruit (bananna + others) readily apparent.. alcohol is well hidden but still warming.. This was great. (4.1) RERATE: Banana filled and loads of alcohol, much as before. Sweet and fruity, a little too carbonated, more watery than I remember. Drops a couple of points.

0.5 L bottle. Hazy brown with reddish tones, and a soft and creamy head. Full, but still fresh, aroma with fruity components from citrus to plums. Nicely complex flavour in good balance between alcohol, bitterness and the concentrated taste of dried fruits, especially plums and raisins. On drinking the beer feels smooth from the foam touches your lips and until the glass is empty - even if not consumed in one draught! Excellent!

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2004 First off I have to comment on the fact that there is an ad for a jewsih singles website in my right frame on my screen. Awesome!! No offense to the Jewish Ratebeerians. This brew was my longstanding favorite for months...nothing could top it. To drink one was an occasion in and of itself. Pours a seductively chocolate color. Look spritzy like any good wheat beer. Smells like...ohh my goodness...ohhh...smells like my nose is going to have kids in nine months..conception. Smells like a deep dark pit of goodness. The malts in this beer are so infinitely enjoyable I can’t contain myself. Notes of raisin, plum, chocolate and a sourness to be rivasled only by my socks. Tastes lovely. Evaporates on your tongue like champagne. Has a very interesting take on the soy saltiness of most dopplebocks. Tastes mostly on the back of my tounge (like Chimay Bleu, or other fine quadruppel’s) Leaves a nice refreshingly tingly carbonation in your hole. Excellent beer. G-rat

Nice. The commercial deScription about says it all. Dark, slightly cloudy. Complex aroma. Overall, a treat. Similar to their weisse.

Bottle pours murky reddish brown, milky off-white head, light lacing, with numerous streams of bubbles eminating from the depths.   Wheat malts, cloves, and banana on the nose.   Forwardly wheaty, with hints of the aformentioned cloves and bananas.   Wonderful mouthfeel, full bodied, a bit too much on the carbonation side but its overlookable.   Solid flavor throughout, from beginning to finish.   I don’t think I could say enough about this beer other than its my absolute undeniable favorite Weizen Bock, and overall one of my favorites of all styles.   This is a must try!

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2010 liquid bubble gum without the sugar. A substitute for people who drink white sweet wines but do not care for beer taste. tasted like fruit flaroured bubble gum. Colour included. Also banana, cloves, nutmeg, some wheat.

Sweet glory... pours a dark ruby color with monster head. The taste is like a cross between a doppelbock and a Belgian White. There is the definite malt presence, but it is smoothed out by the wheat, yeast, and caramel. Fantastic!

The reddish orange to burnt amber looking body surprised me with its initial clarity and the lack of cloudiness. The second pour however had a large number of floating clumps of the little friends. The initial head was an inch and a half in height with a fizzy carbonation. The head did not last very long at all, and there was no lacing to speak of. The smell was perfumey to medicinal alcohol with underlying banana, clove, and ripe cherries. The taste was initially quite sweet with lots of fruity esters and spices typical for a German wheat beer. The alcohol appears to be very well hidden at first, but as the beer warms up, it starts to step in front of other flavors and introduces a lot of dryness in the mix. Towards the end of the glass, the hops make a surprisingly strong appearance. There is a faint smokiness to the malt that is like a wispy ghost. Mouthfeel is not as creamy as I had hoped for, and the yeast adds a mildly unpleasant metallic twang. Very complex beer that starts out easy, and then changes its tune a couple of times as it has your attention.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2004
Bottle. Dark amber with a very active off white head that fades very quickly. The head was in no way shape or fasion long lasting. It disapeared before my eyes into a thin ring of bubbles clinging to the side of my weizen glass. Nose is strong of wheat with a medium bananna note. Taste is WHEATY as hell. There is a very unpleasant metal aftertaste. Some notes of berries, grapes, caramel and fruit come out after it warms. The finish is sour and not exactly pleasant. Honestly I don't know how I feel about this beer. The taste is just a little too metallic and grapey for my liking. It is not completley unpleasant though. This would probably go well with a nice plate of sausage and kraut.
