Bottle. Pours a clear, deep brown with a good head that lingers for awhile. It feels and tastes a little thin. It has an overripe fruit kind of flavor that isn’t as bad as it sounds. Not as good as their eisbock.

Creamy light brown head. Murky rust appearance. Taste is very complex: initial banana, clove, then alcohol cuts in. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Aftertaste has spices, and doppelbock qualities.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes braunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr hefig fruchtig, bananig, würzig. Geschmack stark hefig fruchtig, minimale Würze.

500ml bottle from Discount Liquor Milwaukee. Pouts a deep, ruby-brown color with a tan head. Aroma is yeasty, fruity, wheat, bread. Medium to heavy on the palate with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, yeast, wheat, nutty, bubblegum, clove, with a light, bitter finish. Very tasty.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is very malty with some light banana and clove character. Dark, toasted bread, caramel, toffee and a bit of treacle. Moderate raisin and prune notes. No hop character.
Puts a slightly murky, brown to dark brown with some burnt amber hues and a fairly thick, moderately sized tan head. Head has slightly above average retention. Medium light leaving and medium sized legs.
Flavor has a moderately sweet malt character with quite a bit of toasted bread, caramel and toffee with faint chocolate and roast. Moderate raisin character with lighter fig and prune. Light banana and medium light clove notes. Light bitterness with no hop flavor. Hint of alcohol spice. As the beer warms, I pick up more yeast character and fruit notes.
Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth.
Overall the beer has a nice malt character well balanced with quite a bit of yeast notes. A rather enjoyable beer, but the yeast character, while to style, really isn’t my favorite. Similar story for the malt notes. I suppose the yeast profile isn’t for everyone.
