Draft->honker: pours a thin, off-white diminishing head atop a clear amber body. Aroma and initial taste of bubblegum. Moderately sweet, somewhat medium bodied, finishing lightly sweet. A real surprise and a treat. LinusStick (3530) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2011
On tap at Bocktown. Meh...OK for an American attempt at the style but a little weak. Aroma was decent. Brown sugar, Belgian yeast and dark fruit. Pour was a nice murky brown with a two finger tan head. Taste was disappointingly weak. Watered down and thin. Brown sugar, plum and raisins in the front. Hints of cinnamon and candi sugar as it warmed. Nice yeasty bite, but the problem is that it turned to water in after the swallow. All flavors were washed away. Very light carbonation.

Aroma is more of a weisenbock with clove, banana and such. Flavor is pretty well balanced with some hints of raisin or prune and faint sourness. Finish is a bit sour with some stickiness. I like this beer quite a lot. Thanks argo0 argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 10, 2011

22oz bottle. Poured a copper color with a medium sized light-tan head. Aroma was dried fruits (raisins and plum) and caramel notes. Flavor was sweet malts, caramel, dried fruits. Finish was fruit sweetness. A pretty decent brew. Alcohol notes aren’t overpowering.

(Bottle) Little to no head atop a cloudy caramel body. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation. Flavor is very fruity (berries, strawberry, light cherry, apple), yeast, caramel, warm alcohol, a faint tart taste. Some bitterness in the finish. AR (1002) - Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2011
short-lived head. Good aroma. Medium body. Limited aftertaste. Nice flavor of caramel, nuts, banana, and grapes. Maybe a hint of whiskey. GandGKevin (934) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2011

Medium sized tan head with good retention and minimal lace, spotty at best. Initial pour was clear, final pour is hazy brown in color. Nose is fruity, hint of raisin and caramel, clean bready notes. Body is lightly medium, good carbonation, soft, little oily on the palate but somewhat thin. Mildly sweet malts, caramel, bread with dark fruit notes, raisin and plum. Bready and yeasty notes also. Lightly sweet finish, malts and fruits, little doughy. Bomber from statelineliquors.
