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°

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2013 Bottle. This is one of my favorite beers. It’s beautiful in appearance, aroma and flavor. Big banana and a light caramel chewiness.

mile (3033) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown, cloudy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty – wheaty and sweetish aroma, banana and fruitiness with notes of "sahti". Body is medium to full, malty – wheaty and sweetish flavor, some fruitiness and banana, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty –wheaty and sweetish, some fruitiness and light banana, light alcohol and spiciness.Fruity weizen bock - too sweet for me. Hides 8,2% well. OK but "Don’t Believe the Hype".

aroma is heerlijk vol, volmoutig, rozijn, lichte chocolade, gist, banaan.
smaken zijn alcoholisch, rozijn, aardse mouttonen, banaan, glad maar ook romig, iets aan de dunne kant, matig zoet, zwak bitter, mooie zachte bock met goede smaken.

slowrunner77 (5968) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
it does, however, produce a great head and a big bodied beer, but the flavor and overall impression were were pretty good, but not quite what i was hoping for based on previous ratings. 8/09-one of the few i’ve had to re-visit. Had with Schneider Weiss & Hopfenweiss...more balanced than i remember, and quite tasty. Worthy of a 4+ rating. Maybe i had one past it’s prime?"

Drank with Kaspar @ Cafe Jos 16-10-2014. Interesting beer this one. Weizen hints are still present, but it also tastes like a bok. Good combination. Also hints of fruits and sugar, the beer is moderate sweet. This moderate sweetness is however a bit too dominant, the taste could have been deeper, more compelling. Still nice beer.

Tap at Sly Fox. Amber/brown pour with foamy, creamy head. Aroma is fig, pistachio, dark fruits. Lots of banana and plum flavors here. Chewy malt, brown sugar/toffee quality. Fairly sweet and warming. Solid.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
0.5l bottle poured in a my Weihenstephaner Weizen glass. Delicious beer. Simple like that. The delicacy of a Weissbier, the power of a good bock with a fruity and spicy bouquet. A: Cloudy brown color with a creamy and persistent head. High carbonation. Dirty as a typical Weissbier (looks like thin wheat in the bottom of the bottle) S: Pure pleasure. Very fruity and spicy. German yeasts and caramel malts are relevant. Less banana flavors than a traditional Weiss. T: Good as expected. German yeasts and malt are again, relevant. Toffee and very light liquor upfront taste. Not bitter at all (only perfume hops could be felt). Balanced sweet. M: Heavy and creamy body. Good carbonation, balanced sweet in the beginning and very low bitterness in the end. D: High. Alcohol is almost imperceptible despite the 8.2 ABV. High quality German beer. [ BA Review @ 2/4/2010 ]

Zlotta (50) - Bonn, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2014 Eight-month-old in a 0,5 l bottle. Dark red-brown colour (only if you hold it into the light; if not it is just a murky brown). Hazy liquid with off-white head which fades quickly. Aroma/flavour of dark fruits, molasses, rock candy, figs, chestnuts and dates. Slightyl sweet taste with a hint of bitterness. Full mouthfeel, average carbonation. Overall a very good beer. Flavour reminds me of a belgian quadrupel. In comparison, it lacks a bit of intensity regarding aroma and flavour.

snoworsummer (2186) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 12, 2014
From a bottle. Pours dark brown with thick, creamy off-white head. Smells like caramel and bread malts, figs, spice, floral hops, dates, and sugar. Tastes rich, like sweet malt with strong dark fruit, light floral notes, light spice, mildly sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.
