Deep brown in color, clear with a few yeast floaters. Big frothy head, slowly fades to nice full lacing. Aromas of clove, cilantro, bread, peat and smoky malt. Flavor is wonderfully rich with a first hit of malt, some cloves, dark fruit, molasses, ginger, citrus and sourdough bread. Hints of caramel and toffee. Finishes with a bit of herbalness and some hoppy bitterness. Tangy and slightly sweet, very well-balanced, with mild astringency. Nice creamy texture, full mouthfeel. Excellent example.

my friend said this was the best beer in the world and i’m afraid i have to disagree. However it is very good great sweet bu yeasty smell. in a mug looks like a coke and has carbonation simliar to a soda, but it is well blended with the body. kinda lacked on the taste department. kinda wheaty taste, great texture.

Bottle. Pours a dark ruby-brown with a huge foamy off-white head. Aroma of banana, apple, hay, straw, alcohol, caramel, cloves and chocolate. Flavour was like a wheat beer with sweet malts, fruit, cloves and more alcohol. Enjoyable.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle. Dark ruby brown color with a large off-white foamy head. I haven’t used the word complex in my ratings before, but I think I will with this one. Plenty of different aromas going here, fruity (bananas, apples), caramel, spices. For a higher alcohol beer, the alcohol is hidden well with all the other flavors dominating. An excellent wheat beer. Re-Rate (8-24-05) The more I drink this brew, the more I realize it’s my favorite. So good.

Tap at Kclingers. Pours dark brown with a giant head. The aroma is sweet malts and fruit. Flavors are toasted malt, fruit, clove, yeast, and lots of spices. Reminds me a bit of a Belgian. Alcohol also well hidden. Great wheat!

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (500ml) - in tulip glass. Poured a deep, dark, murky, lively amber-brown - tons of creamy-frothy long-lasting off-white head; combined with the humidity-driven condensation, an entirely appetizing sight. Many aroma notes - sour wine & bread doughy yeast dominated at first, then sweet malt, spices (cloves & coriander), malt vinegar and peppercorns. Mouthfeel quite acidic, sweet and fizzy - but it worked. Flavour strongly of sweet malt, cloves and sourish wine, then steeped fruits - prune & raisin - noticeable alcohol, and a welcome dry hop finish at the end to keep it from being too sweet. Overall a challenging, quenching drink - lovely to look at, smell and taste, but loses a mark for a little too much acidity. The sourness is just right to off-set the sweetness. I’ll have this on hand all the time.

A complex beer. There is significant fruit in the nose as well as alcohol while cold. When it warms the alcohol aroma is gone but the fruit remains, along with a sour, yeasty aroma. Brown, with some sediment. The combination of sweet fruit and sour yeast works very well. A great beer. Could be heavier on the palate.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2009 Nice sweet aroma, vanilla. Tastes sweet, like a belgian abbey but its german. Roasty, sweet, earthy, wheaty in the finish. 8% abv. Excellent beer! Awesome glassware too, served at Redlight Redlight

DuffMan (10433) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 7, 2005
Absolutely fantastic! Brown with a beige head that quickly disappeared. Amazing aromas that require careful dissection: toffee, nutmeg, vanilla, soft roasted malt, all wrapped together as more than the sum of their parts. Palate is terrifically flavourful without being overwhelming: roasted malt, raisins, caramel, and nutmeg/cloves. Perfect carbonation. Very smooth finish. Perfectly balanced so as not to be cloying. Alcohol sits quietly amongst all of this; warm without being harsh. One of the best!

Brown. Light tan head. Commercial description is the most accurate I’ve read, although I’m not sure about the "compact" part. Easy drinking at 8%. I like the eizbock better, but this is very good, also.
