COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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°

Great wheat beer! Dark, full brew, rich yeats aroma, and the slightly sour wheat taste was perfect. Cross a belgian with a wheat and you get this. Amazing stuff, one of my favorites.

This a nice twist on a Wheat beer. Pours a ruby and hazy color. Little head. Smells of wheat and light spice. Tastes is more spic than wheat, sour on the palate, with a fuzzy spice aftertaste. Not being a fan of wheat, I can say that I would drink this again.

Comercial description is bang on. Pours hazy brown with a monsterous rocky head. Spicy aroma, reminds me of a trappist ale. Complex flavours of roasted malt, banana and a fleeting taste of bubblegum. Beautifull in the mouth. Don't drink this too cold since the taste seems to get better as it warms up.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2003
This beer poured a murky brown color and formed a huge, I mean huge, foamy off white head that retained for quite awhile. Heavy amount of carbonation present. An aroma of clove, citrus and malt. The flavor was of clove and malt.

TheTsunami (162) - Arizona, USA - JAN 25, 2003
This beer lived up to the commercial description. Head on a 3 oz. pour took at least 2 mins. to die. Strong clove aroma. Full bodied. However I didn't notice any sort of sour finish. Just spicy slightly dry aftertaste.

Boy I'm not the guy to rate a wheat beer. This one seems very much like the Commercial Description. Stron clove like flavor. Brown color and very hazy. I don't taste the carmel at all, sure wish I could. I haven't had an IPA with a flavor as pronounced as the ones. I think if you read the description and it appeals to you as does wheat beers, you are going to love this one. I don't and I didn't.

Yeasty, sharp apple nose... very nice. Gentle mouthfeel; soft up front, somewhat crisp near the finish. Nice amount of carbonation. Sweet malts complemented by a roastiness and a mild bitterness in the finish. Apple and banana notes here and there; maybe even a touch of bubblegum too. Extremely well-balanced and complex, yet easy to drink and enjoy.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2003 Wow! Did i mention...Wow?? One of my favorite beers. Nice Belgian wheat smell with a great bock flavor. Reddish merlot color. Lingering maltiness and very sweet. One of the best.

Very complex. Nice maltiness in the nose, bit citrusy and sweet. Good fruitiness in the flavor, banana and lemon predominate. Slightly wit-esque in its clove spiciness, but restrained enough to not overpower. Big, big malts finish up. Great palate, nicely creamy and full.
