UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 THis is what I am talking about, was a Heffeweizen, but not only that, it had this Bock flavor too, my two favorite beers, plus Lambic, combined in one.

One of my favorites. I like to drink it only slightly chilled in order for the falvors to come through. Nice.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2006 Looks great. Big head. Great balance. Big and round like Dolly Pardon. Not my first choice in flavor, but an excellent example.

From the bottle: Flavor was very much like clove. I did not taste the banana that many taste, but the cloves were good albeit slightly overpowering for me. I enjoyed this beer and think it is made quite well. The head is long-lasting and excellent. Drink again!

Bottle. Dark brown cloudy wheat beer. Bubblegum, lemon and banana, good carbonation, some roast malt gives this more body and is also smoother. Not bad

Poured with lots of carbonation. Giant head that stuck around for a while. Tastes of clove, bananna, caramel. The clove was more in the finish for me. This is one of my very favorite beers, I would never turn down the opportunity to drink one of these. Excellent!

ABUSEDGOAT (2693) - California, USA - OCT 23, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2006 Havent had this gem in a year, so I figured it was time for a rerate. Reddish brown with a large head and good lacing. Aroma banana, wheat, caramel, chocolate, cloves... more. Very complex aroma and the flavor is better. Fairly sweet finish, but not overly so. Very good balance here. For a non extreme (triple imperial barrel aged whatever) beer, this one is kick ass.

At first whiff, I smelled some Belgian yeast and was about to say that it smelled more Belgian than German. However, at 2nd whiff, I clearly smell bananas and wheat like a typical weissbier. I dont detect any clove, however. Wonderful, murky, dark reddish, orange body with a huge, off-white, almost light tan head. Head dissapates quickly but leaves a thin layer of head on top. Flavor is outstanding. This is what a weissbier should be. The alcohol is well hidden, but it very well accentuates the flavor in this brew. The alcohol definitely hits you as you make your way through the 500 ml bottle. Sweet, banana, molasses sugar. After having stellar Schneider brews in the Aventinus, the Aventinus Weizen Eisbock, and the weissbier, I now hold the brewery in as high a regard as Weihenstephaner.

Just not a Doppelbock fan. I did not read the label close enough unitl I got home and opened up the bottle. Looks great in the glass but just to sweet.

Sampled at the monthly meeting of the Champaign-Urbana Beer Club. Sampled side-by-side with its older sibling, the Eisbock. Tasty caramel and brown sugar notes mesh with a load of banana flavors. Faint presence of hops, but mostly malt here as one would come to expect from a good bock. Good stuff, a bit overrated, but if one is rating according to style, this is certainly up there. Would like benefit from some time in oak barrels.
