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°

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2012 (Bottle) Pours a dark cooper color with a thick bubbly head. Aroma of raisins, brown sugar, and wheat. Flavor of raisins, grain, and brown sugar. A descent dopplebock, but not one of my favorites.

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.

A very strong yet well balanced dopplebock. It has a copper color to it, with a long lasting head.Very pleasant to drink. Its very full bodied.

Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2003
From a 500mL bottle. The beer pours in a fin du monde glass making an impressing and dense off-white head. The body is dark brown with medium to high carbonation. The head is initially very dynamic, the bubbles at the top get larger and its size diminish fast, but a greatly tight laced one-incher stay up there for the whole 30 minutes I took to drink it. Cold, the aroma is nothing to shout about. On the other hand, as the beer warms, it develops a nice brown sugar and fruity malt complexity. In mouth, I first notice bananas, pears, grapes, brown sugar, berries as well as spices like cloves and cinnamon with a wheaty/bready aftertaste. Pleasant medium mouthfeel, a little biting, creamy. While weizens are definitely not among my favorites, this one is complex, refreshing and pleasant. Alcohol was not noticeable at all to me. Thank you CapFlu!

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 6, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2005 Complex aroma with lots of sweet fruitiness and a touch of smoky spice. Big off-white, large bubbled fully-dimishing head on an opaque golden-amber-brown body. Sweet banana esters start the taste which opens up to a rich maltiness which then gives way to a residual bitterness and an almost tart flavour with some yeast and alcohol mildly apparent in the finish. Medium-full body and rather effervescent on the tongue at the start but carbonation is not long lasting. This is one to savour and reflect on. It’s a complex journey for the senses - and I bet the carbonation issues are non-existent if you get this in Europe. Bottle.

Boutip (5233) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2003
Deep trouble copper appearance with a nice head. Aroma is quite complex. Alcohol is very discreet. Not my favorite style or indeed a style that I know much about but I wouldn't mind trying this again.

Kinz (3527) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2003
UPDATED: APR 10, 2010 Nice deep copper appearance, big head, relatively large bubbles. Aroma of tropical fruits and cloves. On the palate, there was a definite bite from the active carbonation. Flavors of light caramel sweetness, cloves, maybe a hint of banana. A touch of sourness. Not my favorite style, pleasantly surprised overall. RERATE: A long past due re-rate, as I’ve had this many time since and have grown to appreciate it more each time. Had this in a correct glass from a bottle at Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill in Las Vegas. Cloves are there, along with a bunch of sweet, chocolate accented malts, with a touch of wheat. Flavor matches, and there is some gentle fruitiness present in the malts as well. My original rating of 8,4,7,2,16 was the result of my issues with the bock style and the associated sweetness. But 7+ years later, tastes change a bit. I still don’t care for bocks, but a well done Weizenbock? That works for me.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Poured a cloudy dark brown with a thick, white head. Sweet aroma. tates similar to Trappist dubbel, raisiny and wheaty. A bit more sweetness in the aftertaste, with a hint of alcohol warmth. Syrupy on the palate with a nice light carbonated feel. Excellent beer, very complex.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2003
Cloudy, hazy, deep brown/red colour. Lots of lively, mostly lasting tan coloured foamy head. Heavy banana and clove aroma with yeasty notes. Banana, raisin bread, yeasty flavours, with a slight nutty and dark chocolate bitter finish. Medium to full body, thick but dry and smooth moutfeel. Almost like a banana milkshake.
