talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2006
Pours a hazy, very dark chocolate brown with dark copper tinge; has an off-white, very fizzy head that surprising lasts extremely long. Nose is very clovey, as expected, with smaller hints of banana and plum. The taste is nearly delectable with the clove flavor still being upfront with chocolate, caramel, plum, banana, and citrus flavor backing the sweetnees. Only a touch of acidity and mild hop bitternes meet the tongue. Palate is lively with carbonation, yet still remains somewhat creamy with a medium-full body. Finally finishes with a sweet caramel flavor along with a slight acidity that actully is mildly refreshing(as with normal hefes). This one runs a fine line between, drinkable, complex, and refreshing. A beer that I would love to drink a few during the late spring months. A must try for bock drinkers and hefeweizendrinkers alike.

MarkoR (959) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2006
Excellent beer. I was pleasantly surprised. First by the beautiful amber/brown colour, than by the generous creamy head that lasted right until the end. Superb aroma and nice taste of fruits (maybe a hint of rasberry?) and wheat. Enjoy!

vyvvy (6068) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 30, 2006
Pours dark copper with an ooff-white head that goes away fairly quickly. Aromas is very rich and sweet with some creaminess - fruit is detected as well. The aroma is very big. Mouthfeel is medium / full and very creamy carbonation. Taste is creamy roasted malt with butterscotch and toffee. Very rich and dessert-like. Finish has lots of toffee and a bit of sourness. An amazing beer.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2007 A German Dopplebock that drinks like a yeasty Belgian. Is there a better beer? No adjectives, just know if you like either style, this beer is near-perfect. Well, only thing wrong may be a slightly off color. OK, Im reaching. The perfect beer.

beerbiere (101) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2006
Brown color. Huge ever-growing sustaining head and intense carbonation. Aroma of banana and cloves. Flavor evolves mainly around banana and cloves with some caramel and perhaps milk-chocolate. Quite sweet with a sour finish. Very round, luxurious mouthfeel. Despite being quite sweet and nevertheless its strong alcohol content, VERY drinkable, dangerous actually. My only complaint is it felt a little dull in the end since the carbonation was down. Yet, one of my all-time favorites.
