on tap on the premises - mtl brewpub. almost cloudy dark copper pour, orange-red tint, with a very creamy light beige head offering good retention and lacing. brown banana sweetness overload, sweet wheat bread stuffed with raisins and spices, plain caramel, tough chewy yeast. moderate carbonation, medium body - very oily; sweet and spicy and deceptively phenolic finish. overdone weizenbock - sweet and overly phenolic. blah. oh-boy.

It gave off a big banana, estery, clove-like bouquet. As expected, those typical German wheat beer yeast bi-products were present in the flavor, as well, along with an assertive alcohol presence. There was a mildly sour tang which added to the quite complex -- very complex beer! B.R. nailed it right on the head when she simply said, "Aventinus." YES! That’s it! It took me about 50 words to do what she did in one!

Hazy dark mahogany-ruby hue, with a thick pillowy beige head, with a yeasty, spicy, fruity nose, of ripe banana, ripe apple, dried fig and date esters, with some sweet toasted, caramelized, bready, wheat malty accents, within a cloves, cinnamon spiciness aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a good fruity yeastiness, grainy biscuity, bready, toasty, caramel, wheaty maltiness character, with some ripe apple, dried fig, banana bread, spicy cinnamon, clove flavours, with a light flowery leafy hoppy undertone, leading towards a warming, yeasty, dried fig, raisin fruitiness, grainy biscuity, toasted maltiness, lingering hop leafy bitterness finish.

Dégusté en fût sur place. De couleur ambrée foncée et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (bananes sucrées et pelures, notes de prunes) et légèrement épicées (clou de girofle, léger de poivre), de blé, moyen de caramel, léger de grains rôtis ainsi qu’avec des notes d’alcool et de houblon herbeux. Moyenne-ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture riche, crémeuse et aux notes sirupeuses. Goût de levures fruitées (moyen de bananes, léger de prunes rouges, traces d’agrumes et de raisins) et moyennement épicées (poivre, léger de clou de girofle) lors de l’entrée ven bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de blé aux notes grillées, moyen de caramel avec des notes de biscuits puis en finale un léger goût d’alcool réchauffant s’ installe et est appuyé par une légère amertume de houblon herbeux. Post-goût moyen-long, composé d’un goût de levures fruitées (pelures de bananes, notes de pelures de prunes), léger d’alcool et de blé avec des notes de houblon herbeux. (29 décembre 2012)

On tap at Dieu du ciel. The color is a dark murky brown with a thick beige head. The aroma is of malt spicies and fruits.The taste also of malt yeast....spucies fruits mostly banana but also prunes with also some hops. It leaves a bitter sweet taste in your mouth that is pleasant.Another great one from D.D.C.

In short: A heavy, sweet and spicy banana cake in a pint. Good but a bit too heavy for my taste
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy dirty copped body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Nose is a big spicy banana bread. Smells thick. Tastes thick. A very nourishing (maybe too much so) banana bread covered with caramel and spiced with cloves and friends. Ripe bananas abound with some other fruits in the back. Very yeasty. Sweetness sensation in the medium-high. Full creamy mouthfeel. That beer is both a meal and a dessert. A bit too heavy for me, I find most 10% imperial stout easier to drink than this. Yet I’ve got to recognize that this is a very well made beer but I’m just not a big fan of sweet darker weizen bocks. Still, another well made beer from Dieu Du Ciel, this place always so jam-packed and I’m so clumsy that every time I go inside this pub I spill beer all over the inside of my belly.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2011 Très belle bière de couleur cuivrée consommée en fût à la brasserie. Elle dégage des odeurs fruitées, florales, d’épices et d’alcool. Le goût est similaire à ce que les odeurs annoncent avec une fin légèrement amère et, peut-être, un peu trop alcoolisée à mon goût. Mais bon : elle a quand même 7.9% d’alcool ! Bon résultat.

My Bottom Line:
This complex but heavyset Weizenbock presents caramel, cloves, bananas and wheat over minty hops and their sustained bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the turbid ochre brown.
-Bready yeast flavors also contribute to the loquacious profile.
-The mouthfeel is a tad too heavy for my tastes in the style.
-The finishing hop bitterness is more important than the average for the style, which helps balance out the important residual sugars.
-That yeast sure is expressive.

On tap at the brewpub.

On tap at Dieu du Ciel. Pours a hazy ruby brown amber with a medium sized beige head. Sweet caramel and toast. Big candied banana, warm with touches of alcohol. Toasty warm malt. Medium bodied, smooth, with light warming alcohol on the finish and lingering candied bananas.

On tap at brewpub.
Appearance : Hazy mahogany with a small creamy head. Lots of thick lacing.
Aroma : Intense bananas, awesome spices.
Taste : Banana and spices with a bit of alcohol. Banana syrup. Intense bananas on finish with spices anf light alcohol.
Overall : This was pretty much all bananas. Thick banana syrup. Felt a bit artificial at times. Alcohol was a bit too much on the finish. Enjoyable overall but a bit over the top on the banana side in my opinion.
