Very cloudy reddish brown with thick off-white foam. Strong citrussy-wheat and caramel/brown sugar aroma. Very sweet flavor of dark fruits and malt and wheat. A bit too fizzy but good body and long sweet alcohol finish.

Sharp fruity aroma, dark red color. Big frothy head. It had a bitter flavor at first, but it got more smooth as it warmed up. Some chocolate, with big fruity raisin or fig tones. Liked it a lot.

Poured the 17oz. bottle into Hacker-Pschorr weiss glass. Appears brown with a ruby glow with a yeasty cloudiness. Lively carbonated bubbles throughout the glass. Ester fruit aromas and cloves . Fruit esters of banana, passion fruit, and pear. Besides that, it is accented with some malty milk chocolate and caramel. Cloves and black pepper linger. If you are a fan of Weiss beer then you must seek this one out. Outstanding.

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Bottle Dark brown / red pour with humongous white head. Seriously, I’ve never seen head like this before, the 16.9 oz bottle filled a 32oz mug with head, and I had to stop pouring. Great clovey estery aroma witha bit of citrus. Complex flavor profile of citrus, fruits, tofee, all kinds of good stuff. Smooth and very clean finish. The only reason I wouldn’t give it 0.2 more points is the head is too big.

One of the best weissbieren I’ve ever had. So smooth, but with a very light body. Deep, rich flavors. Phenominal wiezenbock.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2008 This is an exceptionally tasty beverage. Hundreds of years of weizen brewing can be tasted in every grateful sip. You find someone who’s never had a weizen bock before give them one of these to try as there is no finer example of this style on the earth.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 29, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2007 Beautiful red copper colored with a gigantic white head and some lace. Smells very fruity and appetizing. Creamy and smooth in the mouth and quite delicious. I have no complaints about this beer. It’s quite cheap too considering the quality.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Poured from bottle. Cloudy, dark tan. Large head due to my rather sad pouring ability that stayed a long time! The aroma was sweet, toffee like. The taste was magnificent! Lots of flavor...Thick, sweet, plums, toffee, malty, grapes...A little bit of everything with a very sharp finish...Cant identify what gives it the sharpness though, but I sure like this beer!!

Juancho (239) - Georgia, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Hugely aromatic doppelbock, pours dark and thick wiht a lacy head. Malt dominates, but the other flavors make this a unique experience. I may be irreverent, but maybe i’m just uneducated when it comes to beer. So here it goes... it tasted like root beer. Lots of cloves, cinamonn, spice, maybe incense? It was unique experience.

4.5
detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Cloudy light brownish color, topped by a huge, cream colored head of foam. You can hear this beer, the pour is so fizzy and effervescent. Head dies down after a bit to just a thin cap. No lacing to speak of. Bready yeast in the aroma while the foam is still churning, then a plumy sweet wheat after that. Very malty flavor - wheat, chocolate, toffee, and some kind of fruity raisin bread. Delicious. Finishes a bit less sweet and mildly spicy. Very smooth, nearly full bodied. An herbal alcohol in the aftertaste.
