4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Sampler) 4oz sample glass at the brewpub. Pours a large, frothy beige head atop a mahogany body. Nose refreshingly marshmellow, roasted malt and wheaty. Not as overly sweet and thick as Schneider Aventinus, one of my Top10 personal favourites, but this beer is substantial, well balanced... nice mild fig and vanilla, good palate. Thinner than Aventinus but this still looks like it’ll stand up for a few months to cellaring. Nice work to the new owners of Moon Under Water.
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2016 On tap at Alibi Room. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma and taste are sweet, with fruity-berry notes (like cranberry), roasted malt, slightly bready. Where is regular banana and stuff?! :-) Quite good, though. vadie (1257) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2014
Marron foncé avec un tête moyen marron. L’arôme des raisins sec, du malt sucré, et un peu du chocolat. Le goût est du malt sucré, les fruits noir, et un très peu du chocolat. Une bonne bière, et une bonne wiezen bock, mais pas superbe. rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
Pours a translucent dark brown, no head. Aroma: Lots of raisins, bit of chocolate. Palate: Medium bodied, fizzy. Taste: Very sweet, with a surprisingly tart finish. Not too complex, but nice. Very drinkable - definitely not the sip-for-an-hour Schneider style, but worth picking up. Oakes (18756) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Cloudy medium brown, has a yeasty and slightly floral aroma. Very sweet, a bit alcoholic as well, with accents of dates, candied orange peel, banana, and maybe a touch of chocolate. I’m not nuts about it, but it fits the style nicely. Ferris (16489) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2013
Draft - Dark malts, raisin, bread and toffee. Cloudy brown with a rich brown head. Clove, mint, molasses, dark malts, raisin and more. Really nice, I think this is a winner.

Lots of sweet candy and bubblegum aromas. Copper brown in colour and lots of lacing. Lots of clove tastes and a malty finish. A pretty good beer but not a fan of the style. reebtogi (6378) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
650ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger and a half of light beige head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits and light roasted grains with some chocolate and grass. Taste is a grassy hop and roasted grain bitterness with a dark fruit and chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This is a decent brew for the style, but the flavors seem to be a little off, does not seem to be properly balanced. puzzl (3264) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Light peanut, cotton candy, caramel. Burnt white sugar. Perfectly sweet, cinnamon and nutmeg with a lovely, pure sugar flavor. No ugly malt sweetness. Candi sugar, maybe? Easy drinking, good body. garth_86 (221) - EDMONTON, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 13, 2013
Dark pour. Typical weizenbock but still a great beer. Good flavor and aroma. Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2013
Bomber. Clear dark copper, lasting compact creamy tan head. Aroma of toasted wheat, banana and yeast. Taste is caramel, sweet milk chocolate, toasted wheat malt, yeasty fruitiness and bubblegum. Carbonation is too soft, medium bodied, lightly hopped. While the ABV is well hidden, there is a definite alcohol warming effect. Light spice, clove and citrus show up in a rather flat finish. Probably better on tap. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)
