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.

Pours a deep amber colour, with reddish reflection to the light. Two fingers creamy head that holds all the while, and a creamy lace all around the glass. Aroma of banana, chocolate, cloves, rainsins, rum. Medium body, palate is dense and thick. Taste of chocolate, bananas, clove, vanilla, rum. If anybody told me it’s aged in oak, I’d believe it. Great.

HansHuber (11) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2016
Pours a dark brown color with half a glass worth of off white head that seems to never go away. It smells of banana, yeast, clove, and malt. Very good nose. The taste follows the nose with a bit more sweetness. You get caramel, banana, some fruit, and a hint of clove. The feel is medium with good carbonation but something making it very smooth. This is a world class beer!

Bottle. Shaker. Brown, medium hazy with medium, very light brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is quite intense - bananas, raisins, some dried fruits, hints of nuts. Very nice semi-sweet to sweet taste in the end slighlty bitter. Medium body, oily/creamy texture, soft carbonation finish is sweet and lightly boozy. In general very good and refreshing beer, pretty well balance with all the goods that waizen should have.

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 (91) - 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 (372) - 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.

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.
