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°

This brew is about pleasure. Poured a thick snow white head .. still the beer itself is quite dark, like mossy dark with some green colour, the appearence is beautiful .... mouthwatering. Perfectly masked .. there is a smooth tiny wee tingle of alcohol .. just perfect. Quite complex, but the palate gets the lowest score .. cause it faints rather fast .. I would be very happy host this brew to any guest .... This is only wonderful.

Ottima weisse originale, particolarmente corposa. Bevuta al Weisses Bräuhaus, un tizio tedesco mi spiegò "una va bene, due siamo al limite, tre troppe".

Excellente (bien que je préfère la dunkel de Weihenstephan...). Au nez, un arôme de banane prend tout de suite au nez et s’évapore de suite une fois servie et un peu réposée. Ce même arôme peut choquer de prime abord en bouche d’autant plus qu’elle paraît sucrée. La laisser reposer l’équilibre, gomme la banane (qui aurait été écoeurante). Le tout passe finalement bien avec une fin de bouche légèrement épicée.

50cl bottle shared. Pours murky brownish amber with a creamy off white head. Aroma is wheat, yeast, some fruits, banana. Taste is similar with a light final acidity, almost no bitterness. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Excellent.

cattaneopapa (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2015
500ml bottle from Summerhill LCBO. 8.2% Alc./Vol. Pours a hazy ruby brown colour with one finger of lasting white head. Aroma of cherries, yeast. Taste is so complex that it’s hard to identify each flavour. Cherries and bananas are present for sure along with some plum notes. Finishes a bit spicy.

zacgillbanks (3003) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A very dark brown hazy coloured beer with a spicy plum, marzipan and chocolate flavours followed by burnt currants, sherry and liquorice notes on the warming finish. Superb!

minutemat (2266) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2015
500ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours hazy muddy brown with orange hints. Gorgeous overripe banana aroma. Will never get tired of that. Creamy textures with luscious banana & vanilla yeast esters. One of the greats.

DocJitsu (1183) - Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Pours a very murky dull green-brown with an immediately vanishing head. A smoky character on the nose with date and tartness. Moderately thick. Drinks like a quad with a faint tartness and some earthy notes at the finish.

Butelka 0,5 l. Barwa bursztynowa ciemna, lekko metna. Piana wspaniale puszysta, jednolita, stabilna. Zapach lekko owocowy, drozdzowy. Poczatek bananowy z dodatkiem gozdziköw. Wyrazny ciemny owoc sliwka. Roslinka, trawiasty smaczek na koncöwce goryczka chmielowa. Pomimo wysokiej zawartosci alkohol nie mocno dominujäcy. Fantastyczny podwöjny pszeniczny kozlak nie tylko na zimowe wieczory przy kominku ;-)
