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°

Into a weizen glass. Two finger of tan head on a deep brown body. Smells like bread, hay and a little licorice. Great balance of the bitter and sweet. Slightly more sweet with a touch of sour at the end. Bubbly texture, moderate carbonation, slightly sticky. Delicious.

It produces a thick and tall head which is light tan in color and settles out quickly. This makes for just a little slick lacing on the glass. The body has a rich mahogany color and hazy flat look. The aroma is fruity and yeasty. There are some big banana and bready yeast like notes with mild clove and sweet booze. There is only a faint trace of hops. The flavor has a sweet and fruity, medium to full bodied character with all the wonderful notes picked up in the nose. Red banana, bready yeast, some caramel and light clove mingle with a touch of sweet booze and very mild hop bitterness. The feel is smooth and lightly carbonated. It drinks well and never gets too sweet or cloying despite its sweet overall character.

500ml bottle and Schneider restaurant Munich I tried this one off the back of its high rating on ratebeer and it didn’t disappoint. Such a deep and complex taste of caramel, wheat, and a fruit. Dark brown in colour. Top notch

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Has a nice brownish amber color, cloudy, with a nice tan head. Smells sweet with banana tones vinilla some bread scents too. A big strong taste with a mix of wheat followed by an unexpected citrus at the middle backed up with chocalate malts at end. Like any dopplebock, packs an alcohol wallop at 8%. Slow and steady as you go and you’ll be just fine. A good fireplace beer after a hardy day of work. Drink well my friends

From 0.5 l bottle. Pours a thick brown colour with a lasting pale head. Aroma is mainly banana and peach and caramel malts. In the mouth, strong banana, clove and cinnamon flavours with a spicy and slightly sour finish. Can’t taste the alcohol out of it. Great mouthfeel!

Weizenbock at its best. Beautiful dark brown color with a big airy foamhead. A complex mixture of caramel, bananas, dark fruits, yeast and bread in the aroma. Taste is sweet, more bananas and more caramel. Medium-full body and a spicy finish. The alcohol of 8.2% is quite present. In German, there’s a simple word for it: "lecker".

Fantastic weizen. Dark brown color, very hazy. Head of course is beautiful, big and fluffy. Perfect taste of banana, mango and other yellow tropical fruits. Alcohol perfectly covered.

BenOver (52) - SLOVENIA - JUN 29, 2014
Poirs dark brown with a lpt of head. Loads of carbonation, smell is soury, almost early wine fermentation like. Taste is very mild and surprisingly not sour. A very nice aftertaste aftertaste follows.

Bottle from a Getränke Hoffmann in Berlin, poured into a stein. Pour is dark with a frothy head, aroma is caramel, toffee and red wine. Taste is rich fruits, strong booze notes, wonderful strength and a beautiful complexity with banana notes on the finish. Magnificent

Taboada (280) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUN 24, 2014
500 mml bottle tasted on 24/06/2014. Hazy brown colour with off-white head. Banana and cherries in the aroma. The taste is complex and balanced between the fruits (cherries, banana and dark fruits), the caramel and bubble-gum. Carbonation and body are medium. Aftertaste is a little dry and spicy. Another one nice beer from Schneider and Sohn. Next one please!
