UPDATED: JUL 20, 2006 A beer with a mouthfeel so substantial that it feels like food in your mouth, almost like drinking buttermilk. the aroma was light, yet pleasingly fruity and yeasty. Taste was of sweet cherries and a heavily malted character. I drank two pints of this with a delicious sausage platter and it played superbly with the saltiness of the mustards and kraut. Very nice.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2010 16.9 oz bottle. Cloudy orange-brown with a chunky off-white head that lasts. Malty, wheaty with nutmeg and cardamon. Bubbly but with body. Flavor like nose but also get Circus Peanuts and limey end. Very solid. 2/27/10 - 2004 Vintage bottle. Quickly fading head with lots of chunks and bits. Nose a bit more subdued than fresh with a spoiled fruit tang. Taste has really faded with some raisin, sour port and a dry woody finish. I would have given this a 3.5. dchancenj (1) - New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2006 does not count
WOW... This beer is fun to drink! Fruity and carmel taste. Nice off-white head that stays well. Leaves a nice bite on your tongue and a slight bitter lingering taste on the palate. Eat something before you drink this 1! haha The streets of Munich were tilting after a few of these guys! I loved this beer. Bailz316 (256) - North Carolina, USA - APR 8, 2006
Pours a darkish brown with giant head. Cloves prominent. Bananas and some citrusy flavors also evident. Somewhat sweet and malty. Finish is bitter and dry. Not my favorite style, but a solid beer. kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2006
This pours a mixture of dark brown and amber, with a tan foamy head. Glass gives off a gentle, furity aroma. I enjoyed the spicy taste throughout the glass, and it left a long, good finish. Will definitely be drinking this again.

500 ml bottle. Two years past its best before end date. Coarse thin off-white head. Heavily carbonated. Clear brownish and ruby-red in color. Sweet malty and appley aromas. Notes of caramel and dark bread can also be detected. Slightly oxidized. Full-bodied. Not really particularly sweet for the style. Quite possible that some of the remaining sugars have been eaten by yeast to produce the high carbonation level. Wonderful texture; soft and slightly buttery, but also crisp from the carbonation touching the tongue. Caramel and apple flavours. Aftertaste is lightly bitter. Leaves a viscous feeling on the tongue. jake65 (4033) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - APR 4, 2006
Pours a ruddy red/brown with a ample sized head. Tastes of hoppiness, caramels, yeast, and fruity. A solid beer throughout, finished strong with a nice bitterness. CMUBEERMAN (458) - - APR 2, 2006
Yikes...this one is a much bigger boy than I expected. Pours a perfect brown amber with an intensely dense and foamy head. Aroma is spicey and plumy...of course some wheat and alcohol as well. Flavor is great and unique. Wheat, alcohol, pepper, anise, plums,yeast, and raisins. Mouthfeel was very smooth and a bit heavy. This shit was great. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2006
Aroma was fruity and carmelly if that is possible. This beer tasted alot like it smelled. It was really smooth without the strong alcohol that I expected. The first half of the bottled poured and drank and looked like brandy. The second half looked like a cloudy homebrew and had an increased slight yeasty flavor. Overall this was a good beer but for the money there are a number of beers I would choose over it, but it has a novel wineish palate wash to it. ryan (3185) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2006
Dark brown body with an initially big, fizzy, off-white head. The aroma is banana, wheat and cloves. The flavor is wheat, caramel, toffee, cinnamon and apples. The finish is long, slightly bitter and a bit tart as well. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with lively carbonation that bites the tongue. Impressive.
