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°

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.

Bottle. Dark ruby in colour, great white head. In aroma really lots of clove, then citrus, some banana, yeasts. In taste dried fruit, bananas, malt, some citrusy. Full bodied, meidum bitter finish, alcohol gives warming. Very well done weizenbock, one of the best.

The Everest of Weissbier! One of the most aromatic beers in the World, as The Beer Hunter MJ said. Bottle & Tap in its own glass. Dark ruby blurred color. The foam is huge and persistent. Smell: Clove, banana, yeast, little bit alcohol, and dark fruits such as plum and raisin. Aroma: Bananai plum, and raisin. It warms your mouth while you are drinking it. Very well balanced and highly bodied. Smooth finish in the palate with hints of dark fruits and ripe banana. Must try!

Got this as 2008 vintage. Beer is complex with notes of plum, cherry and spices. Sherry like glass.

Bork (411) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2015
Expertly balanced beverage with a mild sweetness that never goes overboard. Pleasant creamy mouthfeel yet carbonated enough to feel fresh. Quite pleasant.

Botella 50 cl. Color castańa apagado, espuma beige poco persistente. Aromas a plátano maduró, ciruelas, compota de frutas, maltas tostadas y levadura, cola. Cuerpo cremoso un poco pegajosa carbo media baja, de burbuja gorda. Frutal y dulce con final mas seco donde la levadura domina.

Teran (115) - Belgrade, SERBIA - APR 18, 2015
Butterscotch in colour, butterscotch in taste. Very good beer, fizzy. Dark purple brown is very special colour, very natural look. So much taste in weiss! Powerful in alcohol, powerful in everything.
