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: MAR 1, 2008 There is no other equal when it comes to a Weiss Doppelbock. TO get the balance and flavors in this beer are next to impossible, but Schneider does it! RERATE additional info. - Near brown color with a tall creamy head. Smooth with just enough spritz to make it lively. Wheat, light clove and bananas, and fresh yeast aroma. Caramel, light fruit and light fruitcake spice mingle in the flavor. Simply stated "Perfect"!

Rerate ala leap year. Will my past haunt me, is this just a figment. Brown garnet color with a taller bone colored head. Aromas are faint with only some wheat and lightly toasted malt. I fear an older bottle, but I can only assume this is what many have come to expect from the typical shelf stored import. At least the flavors do not let me down, spice, wheat, and malt. Somewhat thinner than I remember as well. An awesome brew fresh, still a great brew. I now am without a 5.0 brew thanks to big black bear. and I must keep searching.

Wow. Just a great beer. The appearance is somewhat cloudy, which isn’t very appealing to me, but it’s nice and dark. The aroma is good. It’s got a fruity/choclatey smell. Very pleasing. After my first sip, I exclaimed ’Oh, that’s delicious!’ Extremely palatable. Perhaps the best beer I’ve ever had.

The aroma is rich with fruituness and malt, has a dark cloudy appearance and a good head. The flavor is very complex with strong hints of chocolate, bannana and maltieness. Has a silky texture and leaves a chocolate-malty taste on the palate. You can taste the 8%, but in a purely positive way, an excellent beer that ranks in my top 5 of all time.

It had a very smooth flavor of fruits and spice. Lots of banana came out as well. Not a bad beer but nothing would make me buy it again.
