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°

anstei (278) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 8, 2015
On tap at The International. Pours reddish dark brown. Wintery warm nose. Strong taste, spices, but only a little bit of Weizen left. Enough to notice, still. A must-try indeed.

8.2% ABV. Weizenbock. Pours out with a fine thick head. Deep caramel coloring. Nice thick malty nose. First mouth feel is smooth and mellow. Not much in the way of hops with the nice warm and mellow embrace of toasted barley and malt dominating the entire experience. It’s like falling into the arms of an old lover, it’s comfortable, sensual and oh so pleasurable to be home. The 8.2 % ABV guarantees that warm "just loved" feel. Very nice indeed. Food pairing ideas: charcoal grilled chicken wings, steamed sea bass with ginger.

Ottima weisse originale, particolarmente corposa. Bevuta al Weisses Bräuhaus, un tizio tedesco mi spiegò "una va bene, due siamo al limite, tre troppe".

Bawelt (50) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUN 1, 2015
Excellente (bien que je préfère la dunkel de Weihenstephan...). Au nez, un arôme de banane prend tout de suite au nez et s’évapore de suite une fois servie et un peu réposée. Ce même arôme peut choquer de prime abord en bouche d’autant plus qu’elle paraît sucrée. La laisser reposer l’équilibre, gomme la banane (qui aurait été écoeurante). Le tout passe finalement bien avec une fin de bouche légèrement épicée.

oliodnb (522) - ITALY - MAY 30, 2015
50cl bottle shared. Pours murky brownish amber with a creamy off white head. Aroma is wheat, yeast, some fruits, banana. Taste is similar with a light final acidity, almost no bitterness. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Excellent.

cattaneopapa (227) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2015
500ml bottle from Summerhill LCBO. 8.2% Alc./Vol. Pours a hazy ruby brown colour with one finger of lasting white head. Aroma of cherries, yeast. Taste is so complex that it’s hard to identify each flavour. Cherries and bananas are present for sure along with some plum notes. Finishes a bit spicy.

zacgillbanks (3097) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A very dark brown hazy coloured beer with a spicy plum, marzipan and chocolate flavours followed by burnt currants, sherry and liquorice notes on the warming finish. Superb!

minutemat (2397) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2015
500ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours hazy muddy brown with orange hints. Gorgeous overripe banana aroma. Will never get tired of that. Creamy textures with luscious banana & vanilla yeast esters. One of the greats.
