3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2013 birra dall’aspetto scuro,rossastro con schiuma intensa e persistente.. frutta dolce e caramellata,banana,sapore da weisse più deciso e bilanciato col malto tostato,finale dolce e poco luppolato..riconosco una buona birra sicuramente, ma probabilmente non ci sono ancora entrato nella mentalità di birra tedesca appieno..se questa birra merita 100/100 su ratebeer significa per me che in germania non funziona qualcosa..daccordo è una buona birra,probabilmente la migliore tedesca visti i voti ma una semplice chouffe è di gran lunga migliore per me..le birre belghe presentano complessità maggiore e mi danno una soddisfazione molto più alta rispetto ad una lager,pils,weisse,kolsch,alt,rauch..mi sbaglierò oppure no,questo non lo so e comunque resta sempre la mia e solo la mia opinione..in ogni caso questa è sicuro la birra dell’erasmus..compagna di tante tante tante serata,quindi prosit!!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown with thick fluffy off white head. Insanely complex aroma. Raisins, plums, prunes, licorice, caramel, figs, toffee. Taste is equally complex and very well balanced. Dark fruits, sweet caramel and toffee, some grains, licorice. Nice malty sweetness with minimal bitterness throughout. Pretty full bodied. Very smooth chewy and clingy mouthfeel. Excellent beer. Very well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big white, slightly beige head, with a nut brown, earthy color. Leaves a decent lacing.
Banana, warm malts, honey, plums, molasse and ripe pear.
Excellent, refreshing beginning, supported by banana, malts and a fitting, high carbonation. Decent complexity, malt gives this a medium-body, with a spicy, warm, slightly alcoholic addition and a long honeyed finish with hints of metallic carbonation. Slick, oily and pleasantly smooth mouthfeel. Aftertaste is sweet with toffee and bready malts, convert to a warming feeling in the stomach. Yeast does a lot of work here, without creating the usual "Weizen" impression. This is a warming and refreshing beer at the same time, with a great fruity body, completed by spices and a pleasant sweet finish.

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.
