Bottle - The prettiest beer I have yet to see: A dark brownish ruby color with a thick white head. Sweet on the palate and the high alcohol content warms the stomach.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2006
500ml bottle. Pours a cloudy light brown colored body under a large fizzy and foamy beige head with excellent retention. Aroma is just bursting with banana and clove esters. Hefty earthy wheat base with lots of yeast, light coffee, and a touch of alcohol. Flavor is very fruity with lots of banana, cloves, yeast, some chocolate, light alcohol, and a touch of coffee. Extremely full flavored. Mouthfeel is thick and full bodied with soft natural carbonation that cuts through the heavy malt and wheat nicely without being distracting. Clearly the benchmark for the style. Stll the best after all these years.

Almost purple brown appearance with a thin head that holds but yields little lacing. Loads of carbonation bubbles continuously float up from the bottle of the glass. Large wheat smell with some alcohol and chocolate malt. Tastes are along the same lines being very sweet initially with some yeasty flavors initially and the alcohol flavor very strong in the finish. This is a great beer that I can’t get enough of. Delightful.

cheap (5862) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 Long awaited. Looks like cloudy apple cider. Alittle stronger than I anticipated in the initial flavor. Flavor is surprizingly somewhat like Penn Weizen! Finish is a little more bitter than I would like...and it lingers. Alcohol content stands out in the drinking. Victory weizenbock tastes better. I’m not sure why this has such a high rating. Figures, ...will not buy again.

rane (1060) - Nibe, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2006
Dark wheat beer. Aroma of wheat. Taste of wheat but not of the standard of Hoegarden. Wat tasted together with Westmalle dubbel and St. Feulliens christmas beer, both was light years ahead.

ajolly2 (129) - USA - NOV 18, 2006
Poured darker than I expected a wheat to; thicker head than expected as well. Lacing races away rather quickly. Very nice fruity flavor; somewhat metallic and dry on the tongue. Reminds me of Hoegaarden in after-taste and smell. Overall, a very enjoyable drink. One of the top wheat beers I’ve tasted. Try it; you won’t be disappointed.

16.9 oz bottle - Pours dark amber with almost no head and some big floaters, though I tried to pour carefully. It smells of yeast, caramel malt, and alcohol. The taste is sweet and caramelly with mild alcohol presence and a hint of spice. Some hops turns up in the finish. It’s good, but I wasn’t quite as impressed with it as many have been. Maybe I’ll have to have it again sometime and reconsider.

This is a real treat..i had the chance to get this but let it slip, not this time, and it was worth the wait, pours a murky brown colour, everlasting headf ring, good lacing, now THIS IS A WHEAT, sweetness on the lips, and a beutiful bitterness. i drank it really cold and let it warm up, i suggest the same, this rocks!
