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°

Murky reddish brown, dense white head; aroma of sweet malt, candy fruits and booze; taste of caramel, Christmas cake, marmalade with a hint of the usual banana and clove wheat beer staples, perhaps some cherries in there too; a full mouthfeel and a boozy finish; a somewhat decadent, complex winter wheat treat.

It was a superlative experience. From the beggining expecting nothing. Very cheap beer in a 500ml bottle. Didnt look anything special. After pouring it. Everything changed. The smell its superb, one I felt very attracted and spend a lot of time on it. For me it was like smelling a yeasty pancake of banana plus cream and peach marmalade. It looks like scotch royalty. A very deep caramel color, perfect foam, symmetric, good consistency. Superb taste! It does not feel like wheat, it made me feel happy. I had a Ratatouille-Ego flashback while drinking this beer. Everything is going to be ok with a beer like this. Humanity may still exist to benerate this beer for generations. Long live the Schneider Brewery, an experience that every human being may have.

500 ml bottle. Very dark amber color with creamy white head. Fantastic smell! Cream, yeast, wheat and caramelized malts, also banana. For resuming this beer, guys, now i feel like a grandfather of the countryside germany that has seen all his family grow and is going to die in peace soon. What a beer! The palate is just perfect, I cannot describe how good this is, makes me feel in peace and good with myself. A beer to makes you believe in humankind and in greatness.

0,5 bottle. Pours murky brown color with medium off-white, mostly diminishing head. Lively carbonation, medium body, hazy liquid. Aroma of bananas, vanilla, clove. Flavor is medium sweat, light bitter, spicy and alcoholic. Finish is medium long and astringent.

WillemsUrenkel (887) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUN 27, 2015
0,5 l bottle. Real brown and unclear in the glass, smaller head. Clove and yeast on the nose, not a lot. Taste starts with way more volume. Dark wheaty, yeast, banana, dry. Fruity with an alcoholic bitterness. Later some vanilla hints. A good one but not straight to the roof top.

RIVERA_HOU (10) - Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Wheat texture. Sweet and spicy. Bock taste. Slight fruit background perhaps dates or raisins. Paired well with banh-mi style chicken sandwich.

guigf (6) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JUN 23, 2015 does not count
Cerveja de cor castanho claro, meio acobreada e turva. Aroma com forte presença de caramelo/toffe e alcool muito forte. Alto acidez no sabor e médio amargor. Cerveja de textura muito adstringente e aquecimento alto, devido aos seus 8,2% de graduação alcoolica.

Clásico. Rico aroma tostado, espaciado... Sabor complejo, lleno de matices, pasas, frutas, especias, chocolate.. Absolutamente suave en la boca. Esconde perfectamente el alochol

Had a sample at World of Beer Fest in Milwaukee. Pours dark reddish brown with small head. Taste is very sweet, but is not annoyingly sweet. Perfect dessert beer.
