Compared it side-by-side with Aventinus and it was no-contest, this one was inferior. It was lighter in both color and taste and it didn’t have a huge head that stuck forever like the Aventinus.

Spot on weizen, very fruity aromas and initial taste. The second glass was heavier to drink, this is a tickers’ beer who likes it initially. Still very good, but the fruitiness dissipitates to just very good maltiness. Worth seeking out for fans of the style.Aove average mouthfeel.

arminjewell (9636) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Pours clear orange-amber with white head, nice carb level. Aroma is banana, bread with a touch of the yeast component, some spices, touch of candied raisin and toffee. Taste is banana, bready yeasty takes over in the middle with some slight spice notes, then the yeast kicks in with a touch of sweet toffee and dark fruit at the end. Has some good qualities, but is a bit lacking in aroma and complexity.

Bottle [12oz] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. 2010 vintage. Pours a hazy orange-amber with an average size diminishing frothy off-white head. Aroma of banana candy, bubblegum, light spices, yeast, nuts and more. Flavour of yeast, wheat, banana, light spices and a light bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Light to average bodied. This is not exactly to my taste but that’s not the beer’s fault, it’s very well made.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 17, 2010
World of Beer Festival. Poured cloudy, milky golden with a tall cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up very sweet banana and vanilla notes upfront with white pepper and clovey accents.. warm and strong, but inviting. The flavor found more vanilla and banana sweetness at the core.. black pepper and clovey spicage plus wheaty sourness around.. a little too much residual sugar in the end. Sweet overall on the palate, which managed to hold the alcohol warmth in check.. filling and tasty.

A bit strong, but what can you expect in a dopplebock. The wheat adds a significant bouquet to this beer as well as a pleasant maltiness.

HogTownHarry (6823) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2010
12oz bottle via trade with jcapriotti, shared with blankboy and garthicus. 2010 vintage. Clear light amber with a decent beige frothy/creamy head. Pungent floral/rock candy aroma with dry herbal bitterness in behind: moderate alcohol. Taste follows, but not as sweet - more floral and fruity - solidly alcoholic Slightly light-bodied, a bit astringent, tons of carbonation, quick finish: candy necklace! Pretty nice.
