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°

When I write my own "great beers" book, this one is going to be in there. Huge head. Complex, multi-layered nose of caramel, clove-like spices and fruit. Equally complex taste, with the fruit showing up a little more, but balanced by the malts. More than enough alcohol to warm you up. Excellent.

Low B high C grade Beer. Very good flavor, nice body, just not the bite I expected in a dark beer, expected something just a bit stronger. Still a good beer though.

abbotsampson (15) - PARIS, FRANCE - MAY 28, 2003
This is a very interesting weisse bock. The appearance is a deep, somber purple-brown with a large, creamy and carmel-like head. The nose is fruity with something that resembles a very pleasant burnt wood aroma. The taste is quite complex and deep at first, growing more interesting toward the back of the mouth. The wood flavor I picked up in the nose finishes out with a soft, ruby-plum taste. Overall, this is a really nice beer... dry but fruity, with complex flavors throughout the tasting process. I highly recommend this one!

Beautiful dark red/ruby colour. Robust and sweet, with a refreshingly dry aftertaste. A rare top-fermented bock beer.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 28, 2003
Pours with a dark brown cloudy body topped by a thick rocky head with a good amount of lace left behind. Sweet and fruity aroma with flowery notes and cinnamon & clove accents. A touch of yeastiness is also detected. Sweet and fruity flavor with a slight yeastiness, cinnamon and clove notes and a touch of spice. medium to full bodied and warming.

zborgerd (187) - Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2003 Dark like ruby with a head that seems to keep for a long time. Aroma of banana, wheat, cloves. Fabulous flavor and excellent clean taste! Perfect balance. Perfect taste that I expect in a wheat brew! Perfect yeast and hops! This is the best among this style. This is one of my new favorites. Very "old-world" brew taste, at an excellent price. Local store has these one sale for $2.79.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2004 A very fresh beer despite its journey. Very welcoming caramel and crystal malt colour with a subtle aroma of same. The mouthfeel instantly gives a hint of the ABV. This is not a heavily hopped beer but is nevertheless balances well with the malt. A touch of wheat character in the finish with some spicy overtones. The only problem was the lack of head all the way down. RE-RATE: When a perfect specimen is found it really has an edge over many other beers. The uniqueness of its style is also a real treat.

Nice, largish mouthfeel with caramelly malt character. Moderate acidity and carbonation keeps the feeling "clean". Gentle bitterness rounds out the flavor. Overall, very nice.
