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°

Strong bread, banana, and clove nose. Has a certain sulfury character but that diminishes as it warms. Mildly wheaty with mildly sweet bready malt, banana bread, Chianti, and cloves, and a little alcohol. Finishes much of the same with a slight medicinalness

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAR 9, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2003 Wonderful appereance: dark brown colour, huge and creamy head. Caramel, yeast and banana in the aroma. The flavour is initially yeasty and malty, but after a while it becomes fruity (apple, banana, pear) with swet caramel and toffe notes. Incredible aftertaste with traces of chocolate and nuts. Complex and well balanced, with the right amount of sweetness. Very interesting!

Aroma of clove and caramel is excellent. Pours a cloudy dark amber/light brown. Flavor is also well done with caramel malt notes coupled with the banana/clove yeast flavors. Finishes a little dry, but very good.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2004 Unusually smooth, creamy texture; nice dark brown color with a huge head; very pleasant taste and smooth finish.

Huge lasting tan head. Murky brown body (not clear like in the picture). Aroma of wheat, clove, chocolate and caramel. Flavour is intense dominated by wheat but I also notice a strong banana presence. Finish is extremely smooth and leaves a nice coating of flavour in the mouth; of course until you take another gulp. A beauty and perhaps legend.

Pours deep redbrown with huge beige-brown sudsy head. Strong aromas of banana, cloves and yeasty bread. Very smooth. Initial malty caramel, followed by an aftertaste of banana with hints of citrus, spices and hops. Very nice.

I still cannot believe this is rated at 4.1, but what confounds me even more is the ratebeerian communities love for anything so much as resembles a port wine as this does in taste. It pours a ruby red but it a fiery cloudy reddish mess in the light with a white fluffy head which dies off very quickly....even more so than i would have imagined. The aroma has some of the strangest stuff i could possibly pick up....everything from malt, to candy and sugar, to wheat, to, i swear i smelled this...vitamins!!! It smelled like vitamins!! The taste was just as complex and weird. There is a massive plummy deep fruit taste. Very strong port wine qualities with a grape-like sourness coming through. On the other hand, there are instances where it begins to taste like a wicked dose of cough medicine..just nasty. The carbonation level is medium to slightly prickly with a definite resiny mouthfeel. Not bad...but once again..far too port winish for my tastes...just strange.

Pours cloudy red/brown with initial beige head that diminishes quickly. Very nice malt flavors mix with caramel, spices, grass, dark fruits and some citrus fruit. Good full body and lightly sour malt after taste. Very good beer.

GregClow (2957) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2003
Pours a hazy ruby-brown with a big, creamy off-white head that retreats fairly quickly. Dark, rich aroma of malt, banana, spice and toasted raisin bread. Creamy mouthfeel, and flavours of caramel, malt, banana, clove and a hint of chocolate. A definate favourite of mine, and I'm glad the supply in Ontario is cheap and plentiful!

This is a great weizen bock. Caramel, spicy and malty flavor goes down smooth. Finishes slightly bitter and (good)sour almost tart like. Recommended.
