COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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°

Indra (2595) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 16, 2002
Incredible aroma, with baking banana nut bread, clove, toffee, just a slight hint of citrus and a touch of alcohol for good measure. Ample head, light tan streaked with darker bottle-runnings (swirled and poured) and lasting at least a day. Attractive, opaque deep reddish-caramel color with a good bit of sediment. Flavor is very satisfyingly malty, with some toffee, doughy, estery and spicy yeasts, date, nut and again a light dosage of alcohol. Finish is creamy and quite long, lightly astringent and full of yeast and malt flavor. Full bodied and with a satisfyingly thick, velvety mouthfeel. This is the rightful standard by which all other Weizen Doppelbocks are judged.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2003 I love this beer. I tried it after seeing it mentioned on here and only have good things to say about it. Only thing I do not like is the clove taste I get when I first start a bottle. After that its all good! Had to re-rate because I keep buying the stuff and loving it more...

Remember the first time I heard about this. Thought it was crazy for a split second before thinking that I like both styles weiis and bock. Works remarkably well. Loads of fruity, yeast. malty flavors. A tad syrupy, but not a major complaint. Prost!

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2002
Dark brownish-gold, high foamy off-white head. Spicy and intriguing aromas, fruity, almost belgian-like. Big malty flavors with tart yeastiness. Ripe fruit (plum, berries) and spice (clove). Alcohol adds to the spicy/pepper undertones, but does not get in the way of the overall experience.

Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2002
Wheaty, yeasty, bread aroma. Sweet malt, estery, bit of citrus. Less bitter aroma than a dunkles Hefeweizen. Opaque brown color (unfiltered) with tinge of red. Big foamy off-white head. Medium body, slightly chewy. Low carb, almost flat. Very smooth palate. All the nuances of a wheat beer, sans chalky bitterness and hoppiness. Big malt flavor without being overly sweet. Alcohol. Malty nutty after but pretty clean. Really good beer. Quotes my wife "this is what beer is supposed to taste like". One of these days I’ll convince her to get her own account.

pivo (2547) - GERMANY - DEC 6, 2002
Big yeasty, estery nose with hints of berries. Murky brown color and a low tight head. Meaty, chewy body with a complex mix of spices and fruit flavors (berries). Dry finish in the front of the mouth. Thick consistency and a gritty mouth feel. This is Hefeweizen squared.

YogiBeera (2450) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2002
Nose of Orange, vanilla, yeast and colves. Brown body with hints of orange. Little frothy head. Spices tastes, also oranges, vanilla black berries and cloves. Thick. Kicks on the roof of the tongue. Awesome that I had to buy it in the States, as it is hard to get it in the North of Germany.

Huge head on this one! This bock was great. Slight tastes of plums, black cherries, and brown cider apples.
