A: The pour is a dark caramel color with plenty of hazy reddish highlights. A tall creamy off-white head sits on top. S: The smell is clove, banana and raisin and yeast. T: This beer is very sweet. The noble hops are fighting a losing battle here. The finish struggles towards dryness, thankfully, otherwise this beer would be too sweet except for sipping or drinking with food. M: The body is in line with the flavor: medium to heavy. Texture is creamy and lingers just a little on the palate. Carbonation is adequate for the heavy sweetness. D: This beer was good, and I think it probably has come to define the style. Therefore, it would be hard to rate it low. It is not really my favorite style due to the intense sweetness, but it does manage to bring together two very different styles: hefeweizen and doppelbock. I guess there is some value in that.

Elle est belle, d?un riche brun trouble, avec un petit col crémeux. Goût qui s?affirme par des élans fruitiers de type banane. En arrière-bouche, un intéressant mélange de sucré et d?amer. D?une consistance plutôt crémeuse. Superbe.

Jow (2159) - New York, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle at home on quiet evening. Pours ruby brown with rich nose of dark fruits. Tastes of raisins, figs, slight citrus, brandy, and plums. Chewy mouthfeel. Round palate. Quite delicious fun knocking off classic brews.

danielecamo (428) - ITALY - SEP 19, 2014
In bottiglia. Colore marrone cappuccino, schiuma abbondante e persistente. Aroma di banana,, frutta secca, noci, tostato. Al palato corpo medio e gradazione ben nascosta. Aromi di frutta secca molto intensi, speziato e tostato meno evidenti. Finale lungo e appagante.

ElManana (250) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2014
Very dark amber, almost black color with a very creamy, light beige head that eventually dissipates completely. Aroma with hints of toasty, nutty, caramely sweetness. Noticible alcohol taste with minimal alcohol effect. Sourncess balanced with a sweet finish.

This beer is magnificent. The head retention seems almost unnaturally good. The beer smells, looks and tastes amazing. The body is full. The taste is delicious, full, and decadent.

Full-bodied fragrance with notes of banana and yeast. The flavor is also dominated also by some banana but with malt tones. A very well made weizendoppelbock.
