4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep, dull dark brown color. A thin Beige Necklace very creamy, high and constant. Well carbonated with lace adhering the walls of glass along the tasting.
The aroma is warm with soft notes of coffee with medium roast, a pleasant sensation of chocolate with an intense, striking and delicious banana with toffee as well, of dark fruits like plums, raisins, a fig is present, wheat and nuances a light and spicy yeast emerges grounded in nutmeg, licorice and cloves. A delicious fresh pasta candied fruit bread that in Brazil we call panettone.
Taste is a little of what is sweet note in the aroma. The typical spicy sensation licorice Weizenbock a banana syrup is present. It also shows in its taste a light coffee with a touch of caramel and beautiful and intense bananas contained in this and wheat. Very fruity flavor. Accompanying these is present the very fine dark chocolate with spicy notes of clove, nutmeg and again the delicious fresh pasta candied fruit bread highlighting the raisins and prunes. All these flavors are grounded by a beautiful Malte Torrado in the finish and maybe a slight smoked.
Medium to full body in a low carbonation suitable for weiss style with a slightly creamy texture and balanced sweet sorrow. Its effervescence felt in the mouth is a little more noticeable.
The Aftertaste is of medium length and slightly malty with bananas and hardly notice the bitterness. It is clear the total absence in the flavor of hops.
A Refreshing Weiss with a hint of acidity in a very slight tendency Porter. A balanced and good drinkability together.
An excellent beer!

Deep dark brown color with a very nice off-white head that keeps a losing until the end. Aroma is toasty, notes of coffee and dark fruits like plums and black berries. Flavor follow the aroma but a little bit sweeter and with wheat notes. Low carbonation and medium to full body with a balanced sweet bitterness. Good one!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2015-02-28. Very dark brown-black body with a nice foamy tan head. 4+ Aroma is sweet, lightly yeasty weissbeer esters, whispers of roast and dark malt. Flavour is similar with mildly yeasty wheaty undercurrents throughout, lightly dusty dry roast accents. Smooth average plus bodied palate. Odd mix of flavours but the overall impression is surprisingly nice. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Cherries, cloves and roasted cereals move into fruity acidity in this Weizenbock-like creation.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the reddish brown.
-The wheat beer yeast is much more apparent than the ’Porter’-like grain bill.
-Drinkability is still high.
-While this is a pleasant experiment, I would still go back to their regular offerings when looking for something in a Weissbierbrauerei portfolio.

Somewhat of a dunkel and not too sweet. A decent blend of porter on a wheat porter. Nicely drinkable during the daytime.

I think this is a really cool beer: nothing I’ve had before. It has the flavour of a porter but is still refreshing like a wheat beer. I highly recommend.
