I have never had anything like this before. Taste like weizen with the feel and kick of doppelbock.This is one of my favorite summer brews.It is nice to have a refreshing and highly alcohic beer. beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2003
Hazy, cloudy dark gold with a peachy tone in color, thin white head of tight foam, faded fast, leaves some stringy lace. Smell is faintly sweet, a bit of wheat, lemon, orange, and peach with a light touch of spice. Taste is great of lemon and orange and incredibly thick and chewy, excellent sweet tartness and citrusy sourness, solid sweet wheat, but all mellowed down and easy to handle. Feel is pretty full and has a very nice creamy smoothness with a slight tart hold in the middle and then has this strange little sourness left on the lips like I had just bit into a orange with the peel still on.

This one was also great. I love this brewery more with every beer. Beautiful thick head with an almost candy like aroma. The flavor was on par with any of the other weizen doppelbock i have had. highly recommend. TAR (2765) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - SEP 21, 2002
Pours with an attractice creamy froth white foam. The aroma brings to mind pineapples and caramel, yeasty fruitiness, peach, dough, and alcohol. Like alcohol soaked fruit. Very smooth and soft palate leads you to believe this will be easy to slam. However, the rich flavors of sweet bread, caramel, cocoa, and fruity Belgian yeast notes force you savor each ounce. This is also turning slightly acidic. The soft finish provides lingering Munich malt, peach, brown sugar, subtle banana, and notable traces of alcohol. A nice rendition of this rare style. ekarmst (44) - Ames, Iowa, USA - JAN 18, 2003
Sampled a vintage 2001 bottle. Malty clean aroma with a clear golden color. Muted weizen character with a small amount of wheat grainyness. Well balanced and malty. Alcohol not detected. Big creamy mouth feel. This beer has aged well and it a pleasure to drink. One of the better Capital Brewery beers. A defenite must try if you like big German style lagers.

Nice refreshing wheat flavor,great summer beer for those who like something with a kick.The only doppelbock I can call refreshing. NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JUL 27, 2002
Lighter colored, compared to Aventinus, and not at all cloudy, even after pouring the sediment...? Very grapey, hints of pear and honey, also floral notes (lilac, esoteric, no?) Quite sweet, but the light hopping, spice, and dry alcohol bite pull this from the edge of being cloying. The finish reminds me of the milk left over from a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, creamy, sugary, and cinnamon-y. 30% weizen and 70% bock I think, but a tasty one nonetheless. scrawfis (143) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - OCT 16, 2002
The aroma of this beer is strikingly similar to a Belgian Strong Ale, with a heavy scent of alcohol present. The flavor is a combination of a Belgian Ale and Bavarian wheat. Not exactly what was expected, but very tasty. Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2003
Yellowish orange with no head. Lemony scent that I'd expect more from a straight weiss, but it is very pleasant, so I won't complain at all. Hmm...tastes a bit of apple cider, with some honey in it. Has a little spice in there as well (cinnamon, maybe). The only thing I don't like about this is that its a little too thick and syrupy for my tastes. Otherwise, I think that this is my favorite (so far) of Capital's offerings. Skyview (6055) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Happy to see this one pulled out of retirement. Sampled via 12-oz bottle at the Great Northern Beer Festival in Eagle River, WI. Pours a hazy amber colored brew with a creamy off-white head the slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of mostly banana bread with a hint of walnuts. Some yeast, multi-grain malt and a touch of honey. Taste is full bodied, soft carbonation with more banana bread profile, roasted nuts, a hint of honey and floral hops. Finish is quite sweet, with a long lasting banana/yeast aftertaste with some dark bread. One of two of my favorites of the beer festival.
