Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2006
500ml Bottle: Its like Schneider has been reading my diary. My first dark weiss I was already excited to try it, and not disappointed at all. Pours a beautiful light leather brown with orange edging, and a hefty foam head that never quite left. Pleasant aroma of bread, citrus, and pumpkin spices (ie. clove, cinnamon, licorice). Absolutely amazing taste exactly as advertised. Hits immediately with a citrus-heavy weiss punch that goes down smooth, trailing with the spices and a strong anise aftertaste. Immediately afterwards you catch those bock tones and fades to a hoppish end. Terrific all the way through, would have it again in a minute.

A malty, toasted, breadlike (yeasty) aroma, moderately doughy. The head on this one is a huge and frothy sight that reminded me of rising bread dough, could have just been the aroma influencing my senses. Smelled of a bit of raisin, vanilla, all-spice, a bit wine-like, with an ever so slightly alcohol odor. The froth had some serious hang time too. Off-white in color it complimented the clear, deep reddish orange color of the brew, which seemed kind of flat with a tiny hint of effervescense. The flavor was very spicy (Cinnamon & clove) which reminded me of Christmas time (that is Christmas night with a warming sensation radiating from the inside out as the brew travels from your tongue to your stomach. A pretty good beer overall but not good for me. One for the holidays.

slightly hazy dark brown with a large off white head. Aroma is of banana, vanilla, caramel, and bread. Taste is the same with some dark fruit showing through, spicy finish.

Miksu (5046) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2006
Bottled. Hazy reddish-brown color with impressive but vanishing head. Bready aroma with banana, smoke and berries. Bready, sweetish and warming flavor with notes of banana and dark fruits. The finish is silky, oily and warming. Great beer with deep flavors!

DarkMagus (510) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 10, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2006 Huge, long-lasting bubbly head. Dark brown/amber/reddish color. Flavors were a complex blend of malt, caramel, a hint of raisin/fruit. A great, great beer. Extremely refreshing, easy to drink, not too heavy at all.

The Aventinus Dopplebock was a nice suprise. The pour was a very dark brown, with hues of red as well. The head was a quickly subsiding burst of bubbles the color of carmel. The aroma was very fruity and wine-like. The taste was very fruity, with a belgian quality to it. The finish was smooth and somewhat dry. A very nice brew."

Nicko (223) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2006
Comes highly recommended so a lot to live up to. Redish dark brown colour pours nicely out of the bottle, average size head, but long lasting. Mild citrus hoppy aromas, with a touch of spice. Slightly sweet taste, but not too much so. Nice full body.

thewolf (12300) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2006
Muddy brown-red colour with great white head. Banana, fruitiness, some citrus and plums in the aroma. The taste is equally impressive, with the caramel taking over, lending a sweet edge to the taste. A lightly vinious touch enhances the fruity flavours in a long-lasting aftertaste.
