Deep and complex – for big and relaxing moments by the fire.

Dark copper, slightly unclear. Aroma of orange peel and ripe bananas with some vanilla. Refreshing taste, and pleasing aftertaste (which is perhaps not equally refreshing).

ordybill (382) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Pure heaven, great smell of yeast, caramel, honey and malt Appearance- This is a dark murky brown brew with swirling sediment and a small off-white head. Taste- A masterpiece! I love this flavor, well balanced fruit and spice with malt and yeast. perfectly blended. Palate- This is a medium to heavy beer with moderate carbonation. Has a nice semi-dry finish.

C’est une grande bière. C’est par contre dommage que Schneider aille changé ces étiquettes, je préférais les anciennes. Cette bière se marie à merveille avec une bonne viande ou un boeuf bourguignon.

cogitus (1) - - MAR 15, 2015 does not count
Have enjoyed ’young’ ordinary bottles and the paper-wrapped brewery-aged vintages 2009, 2008, 2006 & 2004 over the past year. All are quite enjoyable but the 06 & 04 are remarkable. 04 has nearly lost all carbonation (6 bottles so far) but retains all the dark fruity caramelly wheaty goodness, just more mature and sophisticated. Cellar temp into a snifter the 06 & 04 are perfection to sip and enjoy. Stick to the 06 or younger if your beer must have carbonation, but if not and you can get the 04 enjoy the even deeper character that develops.

jice (148) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAR 13, 2015
Complexe à définir. Belle couleur rouge foncée, rubis comme j’ai pu lire ailleurs. Alcool présent au nez, bien caché par les nombreux arômes: banane, fruits secs... bel éaquilibre global. Très intéressante.

nihtila (838) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
13.6.2014. Hazy brown, thick light brown head, dirty looking. Aroma of malts, slight banana and raisin. Taste of nicely balanced malts with still raisin, caramel sweetness, slight tastes of weizenbier banana and yeast. Quite heavy for a weizenbock as abv implies. Nice.

VDuquerroux (502) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle, 500mL Home. Trade with @Jaghana. Last one of the suitcase ! Merci encore Pascal, tu as changé ma vision, très naïve, des bières allemandes... A dark brown opaque beer witha big beige creamy head ; good retention. Roasty aroma, banana, prune, clove, licorice, alcohol. Medium sweet, light warming background suspended with light dry bitter refreshing waves. Medium body, silky texture, good carbonation, bittersweet finish. Overall, delicious weizenbock well balanced ; firework aroma when temperature gets higher.

Gorgosh (283) - - MAR 5, 2015
Det är något fascinerande med de som tar i från tårna, satsar så att blodkärlen i pannan spricker och på köpet lyckas med sina bedrifter. En onödigt stark weissbier som bevisar sig vara helt nödvändig är en sådan. Kan sorteras in i samma kategori som spjutkast på 98 meter och höjdhopp 2,45 meter över marknivån.
