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°

Dark brown, ruby red with a good layer of off-white foam head. Fruitcake aroma, banana, yeast and spice like clove. Amazing taste, every sip or gulp is smooth. Sweet malt, wheat, banana, chocolate, some ripe dark fruit taste, nice little alcohol edge. Love this.

TychoJames (73) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2014
Flaska från systembolaget. Tjockgrumlig mellanbrun färg med liten smutsvit skumkrona. Härligt fruktig doft. Mjuka äpplen och banan. Dessa två återfinns även i smaken. Får även aningar av diverse kryddor. Len och mjuk i munnen på ett kraftfullt sätt

Beer4000 (4322) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Fox and Hound, Aabenraa (as Tap 6 Unser Aventinus). Slightly unclear brown body with a nice, creamy off-white head. Aroma has caramel malt, dry fruit, slightly spicy and just a tiny hint of banana. Flavor is medium sweet, soft malt, light caramel, hint of toast, dry fruit, flowers and some spicy yeast. It just feels extremely well balanced. Fine body and good aftertaste. A true classic.

volksygge (10) - NORWAY - APR 17, 2014
Eye: murky brownish color and smal tan head, dissapears quite quick Nose: bananas, caramel, dark choc, plums, lots of plums Mouth: ripe fruits, sweetness balanced with roastiness and toasty notes, full bodied, smooth finish, little warming, no clear alcohol notes! --- A classic style beer that could compete with the best India Pale Ales available.

Wombata (358) - Kobe, JAPAN - APR 17, 2014
Bottle at Goro. Aroma: Floral, slight sour notes, citrus, herb, and banana as it warmed. Flavor: Roasty, nutty bready and banana. Comment: complex and impressive. This easily beat out the Korbinian. Great stuff.

On tap. Pours a deep, cloudy brown with a foamy tan head and lacing. It has a sweet aroma wit lots of banana, some sweet malt and clove. The flavor is sweet throughout, with slightly fruity notes, some spices like clove, and a sweet finish over a light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

För besk och fyllig för min smak. Färgen och doften är dock fantastisk. Måste prova den om man gillar mörk veteöl.

Renobob (452) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 10, 2014
Bue à la pression. Bière trouble couleur jaune marron clair plutôt moche à vrai dire ;) Mais en bouche, quel plaisir ! Plusieurs niveaux de dégustation, on sent les houblons, le grain, la banane (qui est réellement très présente pour une fois). Très intéressante !

Dragonfly1 (460) - Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2014
Cloudy, muddy brown. Nose is all spice cake. More spiced banana bread on first sip, then fades quickly and turns somewhat thin at the finish. I’m definitely on the lower end of the scale with this one...
