Having one now, and wondering how it is I’ve never rated this wonderful beer! Love the gentle toffee and banana notes with an underlying clove flavour dominating the "long taste". Seriously full bodied, but perfectly balanced. The head fades quickly, which is the only downer for this marvellous beer.

batupata (10) - FINLAND - MAY 24, 2016
Dark brown beer with a thick beige head. Aroma is lovely, bananas, sweet malts, yeast. Taste is sweet, yeasty. Bananas and dried fruits. Alcohol is present but not overwhelmingly so. Aftertaste is little bitter. This is no question the best weizendoppelbock I’ve tasted so far.

Bottle @ Whole Foods. Sorry but this was not my cup of tea. Looks good. Even smells good. But the taste was like an astringent fruity vinegary wine or something. I couldn’t even drink all of it. Hard to believe i would say this about a Bavarian Bock but this was Awful stuff! Cannot recommend to anyone.

albmoro (90) - BRAZIL - MAY 11, 2016
Bem encorpada. Malte bem presente, assim como o caramelo. Por ser uma doppelbock é bem alcoólica. Ótima cerveja, mas não vale 100 pontos.

LazyPyro (364) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2016
0.5L bottle. Looks fantastic in the glass, cloudy dark chocolate brown colour with a huge off-white smooth creamy head with good retention. Aroma of banana, yeast, cloves/spices, dark malt. Taste is wheaty, yeasty, banana and dark fruit, spicy, floral, with a little sharp hop bite in the finish. Lovely smooth mouthfeel, full bodied, average carbonation, alcohol fairly well hidden given the ABV. Fantastic beer, instant favourite.

MRMedellin (271) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - MAY 6, 2016
Dark brown beber, with a beige head, some nice caramel and sweet banana notes are perceived at nose. When is tasted it has a medium body and some nice roast malt flavours are felt, the aftertaste is bitter sweet but really well balanced.

Aroma of burnt Carmel and raisins, has hints of toasty malts.Appearance. Cloudy brown color with a huge white frothy rocky head.Taste has nice alcohol warming with hints of coffee and caramel. Sits very well on the palate with the alcohol warming fading quickly. Overall the best tasting weizenbock I have tried.

Tastes of caramel. Very sweet. Well balanced. I can see why this scores so highly. Just not my cup of tea.
