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°

Medium brown color, medium white head, and wonderful strong fruity aroma that reminds me of some of the Belgian style ales. Medium body, nice carbonation level, and tastes very sweet but still retains that yeasty, citrusy, banana like flavor of wheat beers. This is good stuff, definitely the best wheat beer I have tried. Sweet and mildly alcoholic, more brewers should make this style.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2004 Bottled: WOW! Came out a little fizzy, but the head died down immediately. Malty, wheat and cloves make for a rich taste. Undertones of alcohol, but doesn't overpower the taste. Nose is a bit floral. Also hints of clove. Very full taste. VERY GOOD! This bottle was aged for a year and a half. It was much better than when new!

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2007 Pours a deep dark cloudy redish brown with a medium head that fades in a heart beat. Nose is clove and maybe a little banana. Flavor is complex, fizzy, banana and clove. Alcohol is evident, but not overpowering. Reminds me of Belgian more than German.

Over-ripe banana aroma and flavor. Thick lacing on top. A bit syrupy. A good beer.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2002
Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. Dark amber color with an off-white head. Nifty fruit aroma of grapes and raisins (same thing I guess). Complex flavor of fruits and malt. I am new to the Weizen Bock genre but this was good!

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2003 forget the raisin-plumcake and the bananas foster, here is real dessert. Drink it in the winter if you try it stateside, 02883(julian dating - 288th day of the year, expires one year later) on the bottom of the back label means it came out of the brewery approx. 08/08/ 2002. Should never be exposed to high temperatures as it is an unpasteurized product - bottle conditioned(yeast in bottom helps though). MAY BE THE BEST DOPPLEBOCK OF ANY KIND!

An excellent wheat doppelbock. Slightly sweet. Pours a beautiful dark bronze. Alcohol mixes beautifully with the banana esters. Clove flavor as well.

A classic. Huge malt aroma and tremendous banana, chocolate, clove, caramel flavor set in relief by alcohol.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2004 Sweet brew man. As a lover of the german beers I get a bock and a weiss! HOT DAMN it is all alone though, so nothing to compare to it. Definite alcohol presence covered by smooth sweet mouthfeel and roasted malts. Complexity adds up to a wonderful finish. A hint of chocolatiness on palate with a real late clove finish. Hooraah for originality, especially when it links two beauties as such. Re-rate feb2004: Well, I've now had a couple of weissebocks, yet none as good as this one. I no longer can give it a 4.4 though; flavor, palate, still awesome. nice warming effect, and awesome balance with just enough cloying. soft, subtle andd beautiful.

I held it up to the light and there was an outline of a tornado in the glass! Cool. Crisp head, sweet tangy clove melon nose. Dances on the tongue when cold. Settles as it warms.
