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.

Vestergaard (314) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours unclear reddish amber with a big, fluffy, off white head. Aroma has baked fruits like banana and apple, a tiny bit of smoke or leather, wheat and caramel malts. Taste is sweet, spicy, banana, caramel, wheat, again this leather thingy. Really smooth taste and body as well. Medium to high carbonation, and a well hidden alcohol.

Drink cool (10-12°C) Eye: beautiful reddish-brown, hazy/dull with a nice big white to beige head that dissipates not too quickly. little carbonation. make sure you get out the yeast from the bottom. Nose: Sweet yeast, (dryed) fruits such as raisins, cherries and prunes. Mouth: wheat, bread, dryed fruits, banana in an oily or butterlike body. Palate: sweet finish. yeast/wheat, banana and fruits remain. Overall: very nice beer. i’ll definitely have this one again

Drak golden matte and hazy cloudy color. Considerable tan head. Rich arome, quite malt and caramel with lots of alcohol nuances. Medium sweet taste. Medium body, quite sticky texture, lively carbonisation and alcohol finish according to the rather high alcohol amount. Overall a good one!

Transfer from BA review on 10-11-12- Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – The beer was served as a hazy medium brown color with a thin off white head. The head had a moderate persistence fading to leave a nice level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a brown bread smell with tons of darker fruit notes. For the fruit, raisin, plum, and a lighter cherry flavor are all there. With these aromas is a good hint of booze and a light amount of yeast and banana. Taste – The taste begins heaviest of the darker fruit flavors of raisin and plum with a more subdued brown bread taste mixed within. As the taste advances some light banana flavors as well as a wheat and yeasty flavor coming to the tongue. Toward the end, a pleasant warming alcohol flavor comes to the tongue, leaving a nice sweet warming taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and fuller side with a lighter carbonation level. The overall mouthfeel very nicely compliments all the dark fruit and yeasty and light boozy flavors very well. Overall – This is one tasty and very drinkable brew. It is renowned for a reason. Very well done. Tons of great flavor and an overall joy to drink.

50 cl. bottle @ the bungalow Spier, bought @ Mitra Beilen. Hazy brown with an off-white head. Malty yeasty aroma with overripe banana, vanilla and caramel. Sweet taste but not overly so. full round creamy mouthfeel. A great weizen bock.

ilsaconsume (11) - Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2014
A big toasty roasty beer that doesn’t drink as heavy as it tastes. Well balanced and malty - the alcohol content doesn’t impede its complexity. A hint of spice plays ball with the yeastiness.
