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).

Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is plums, rum-soaked raisins, spiced fruits, bananas, minor floral notes. Taste is chalky / wheaty with dark fruits and floral flavors...some herbal liqueur / booziness. Not a big fan.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl Fresh in Vienna. Pours hazy dark brown with thin brownish head. Aroma of malt, raisins and sweet licorice indeed. Very close to dunkel, but is weizen and indeed super malty as a good bock should be. Tangy and fizzy, with medium body and a creamy finish. A bit dry. No 8.2% is noticeable at all. One bottle is more than enough for a person. A close sibling of Aventinus Eisbock but rather more gentler. A superb brew!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. BB 06.11.2016. Pours a very hazy coppery brown with a slightly creamy white head. The head is thick and retains nicely. The nose is wheat, wheat, wheat at first (as it’s cold), then warmer notes of banana and a bit of spices, bubblegum sweetness. Tastes so rich... not exactly sweet, not bitter at all, not... Well, difficult to say. It’s luxurious. Malty, wheaty, with a touch of bananas. A bit of bitterness later on. Smooth in the mouth, carbonation just enough and very thin. There’s a sharpness on the palate (do I dare say ’plastic’?) which makes it just a bit less enjoyable. Otherwise very good.
