3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the TCR in Launceston Tasmania. You know that you’re off to a bad start when you’re a contender in a small class that is dominated by Aventinus Weizenbock. This doesn’t rise to the challenge of its better-known (and loved) classmate. It looks good-- Hazy dark brown with a robust brown head that seems to last forever. Aroma of dates, wood, and spices are unfortunately clobbered by the alcohol on the palate and actually come across as pretty weak. Not bad, but given the choice reach for Aventinus.

Flaske. God frisk smag, efter en meget brun farve og et flot men dog hurtigt forsvundet skum. En del malt smag, og en god karbonering der gør øllen frisk. Men forholdsvis en dimensional, uden den opsigtsvækkende smag.

Bottle from Corks off-licence, Bristol. Near black with a big tan head. Aroma of caramel, dates and yeast. Flavour of caramel, bananas and spice. The alcohol provided a warming finish without overpowering. Very good.

Another PD/ Olaf Schellenberg beer. I loved this dark delicious wheat beer. Not one to sup in quantity after a long day at work and expect to be bright eyed the following morning...I know!

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2007 Almost fruity, malty, rich, wheaty nose. Some alcohol aroma present too as it warms up. Dark caramel chocolate color with looong lasting foamy off white head. Taste was malty, and bock like with a definite taste of wheatiness as well. An interesting beer of a style I’d like to try more of. Towards the end, I could taste the alcohol some as well, but overall a good beer that I’d get again occasionally.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown to black with a fluffy tan head that goes quickly. Nose is of alcohol with toffee, some winter fruit, some wheat and nose-clearing wateryness. Mouth is big alcoholic sweetness, some malt and some dry fruit, hint of metal. Alcohol lasts through to give a warm, but slightly more balanced finish with some wheaty notes showing some more prominence. Coating and thick, but a little too sweet to be excellent.

Bottled. Pours a very darkbrowinish/black colour, sparkling head, which disappears immedeately. Aroma is sweet toffee along with slight alcohol and wheat Flavour is raisins, alcohol and toffee. Some balancing up stuff. Pleasant.

Rigtig god ø.
Den er brun med pænt skum.
Duften er karamel, brændt og gær.
Smagen er varm og let brændt. sødlig og maltet. Humlet eftersmag.
Dejlig tung og velsmagende øl.
Genbruger det bedste fra dobbeltbocken og weizbeer.

Bottle BBE 2006 Legends bottleshop, Attadale.
For all its alcoholic presence, this beer seems to be rather insipid, and musty flavoured, pretty dissapointing considering thier other beers, maybe this was really past its drink bydate..?
