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°

My second-favorite beer of all time, second only to Chimay Blue. Very complex, with a spicy aroma that's hard to beat. Clove, licorice, apple, pear, orange peel, malt, toffee, and all that's wonderful. I don't know where they hid the hops. Pours a lovely dark amber/brown. Cloudy but lovely. Big bubbled head that goes to a small bead. Fantastic brew. Yeast makes this one incredible. If I could change anything I'd add a bit more body, but it's still a FINE beer.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2008 Bottle pours with a color of prune juice and a real nice head. There were patterns in the beer of the sediment that I added in the end that looked like smoke wafting from a cigarette. The aroma is yeasty and clove like. The flavor is nice and clove like with the real sense of wheat. The palate is very carbonated and quite refreshing. Overall, real good.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - OCT 27, 2003
Hazy brown amber color with a good head that receded and left lazy bubbles forming on the surface. Xmas spice and perfumy aroma with some yeast. A good medium body and zingy on the tongue, a malty and fruity flavor with a candy sugar note to it. The finish lingered and was sweet with a touch of alcohol. Very enjoyable with a subtle kick to it.

FlacoAlto (4000) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2003
Cloudy deep red to brown color. Very fruity smelling, notes of ripe plum, a bit of banana, and some definite clove in the aroma. Well carbonated, pours with a rousing head. Tastes sharp from the carbonation. There is some definite banana flavor in the finish. This beer is lightly sweet, has a light bit of astringency in the finish. the dark malt adds a richness to this beer, in combination with the yeast, it gives the beer dark fruit type flavors. This is like a richer, more chewy, fruitier older brother of a great Hefe-Weizen. All of the characteristics are here, just more so. My only complaint is that I wish it had finished with a slightly higher final gravity, a little more thickness & sweetness would have been ideal.

Cobra (1100) - - OCT 25, 2003
Brewed in 1999. $5.99 each. 500 ml. brown bottle. Bottling date of 3/13/99. Sampled on 10/20/03. Poured out a deep brown color, with ruby colored highlights. Had a short lived tan colored head, that quickly faded to a thin lacing of a head. Tastes of sweet malts. Hops are very subdued, if any present. Aromas of bananas, cloves, lactic wheat malts, and an odd aroma of Nyquil. Tastes ok, and finished sweet & malty.

Brown, hazy color. Huge, fluffy head. Estery banana-aroma. Thick, smooth mouth-feel.Sweet, malty Toffee-flavor.The alcohol shows up in the finish, but in a pleasant way. I kept drinking it in small sips to make it last.

Poured a dark amber color with a lively light tan head. Sweet, spicy, malty aroma. Alcohol and clove are also noticeable. Initial sour taste, followed by caramel maltiness. Slight wheat/witbeer characteristics as well.
