very brown and cloudy with an impressive white foam topper. wonderful aroma of dark fruit, allspice. Pear nectar, spiced cider,sweet but not cloying and just sour enough. Really a special beer

Dark, slightly clouded, amber with a mushy head. Sweet cloves aromas with a roasted touch. Extremely pleasant at nose. Caramel, cloves, hints of malt, the flavor is complex but extremely well balanced. Round, crisp, highlighting well the flavors, it is yet refreshing and smooth. You feel the alcohol in your head, not in your mouth. As close to perfection as a beer can be...A masterpiece by Schneider and Sohn.

Nicely honeyed and goes down well. Dark, rich amber color. I enjoyed it for taste--not so much for continuous drinking. But a very very nice round--cheers, Jine.

Pours a dark hazy copper. Smells earthy with hints of banana. Has a sweet, malty flavor with a fairly strong spice element. Flavor has hints of sage and banana. Finishes smooth.

pours a hazy burnt orange color with a crreamy off-white head. very complex sweet fruity aroma. i detect plum, apple, caramel, and clove. sweet and fruity up front, chaning to a more more spicy hoppy finish. lively carbnation and mouth feel.

The one and only. Hazy brown, huge fluffy white head in my Aventinus glass (just like the picture). Nose and flavor are quite complex with hints of spicy clove, pear, banana, sweet bread, and brown sugar. Tangy, fruity, spicy, with only a slight hint of hops near the end to round it out. Medium to full-bodied, fizzy carbonation, tangy, dry, spiced fruit finish. Consistently an amazing brew....

duvel tulip glass: incredibly loud pour, very fizzy. it smells great - chocolate tangerine candy. it looks great - very dark brown body with ruby highlight. it tastes great - smoke, sweet chocolate or caramel, fruity orange punch, and spice. damn. sounds disgusting, but i like it. its also strong and i cannot tell. a fizzy dessert! a weizen bock, egh? i understand, at least implicitly... i sense some oberon and i sense a typical good bock with some smoky characteristics.. very nice brew! NOTE: after reading some reviews i noticed everybody notes banana... now that you mention it, some of that smoke i sensed seems to be part of the banana you guys note. in any case, this brew is complex to me.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2007 Bottled. Small near-white head quickly fading into a fading ring, no lace and topping a dark, reddish amber body, hazy with some rather large solids in the bottom of the bottle, like solid, blackish flakes. Mouth is fairly full with an incredible amount of foamy(but with larger bubbles, as would provide silky mouth if there werent so much) carbonation that is very dry and reminding me of a good belgian strong ale, very clean and crisp. Malty mouth with fruit(banana, prune), caramel, bitter clove(mild enough to be quite pleasant; adding, not overly dominating), sour yeasts in the middle, a finish that is bitter clove, sour banana, burned wood...not oak, maybe redwood, somewhat like a cinnamon stick with much of the flavor boiled out. Aroma last to let this warm up a bit: wonderful aroma of carmelized bananas, light, light clove, touch of vanilla; sweet and clean, reminding me of "Dreamery Banana Split" ice cream, which is wonderful stuff. Aroma picks up prune and touch of alcohol with warmth. Bock sweetens up as it warms, ever so slight taste of sweet alcohol peaks out from the clove and caramel, aftertaste becomes sweeter, picking up more caramel, touch of banana. Pleasantly dry, not parching; lovely to drink, complex. 10/2007 Ridiculously big head, fully lasting, with no lace, topping a chestnut body. Lovely aroma of fruits, banana, wheat, esters, guano (yes, this stuff smells a bit like a cave, or ocean rocks frequented by seabirds), and alcohol blended throughout. Mouth is medium-full with lots of light, foamy carbonation and a dry finish. Becomes somewhat watery as it warms. Flavor is fruit, fruit, fruit! Concord grape, fresh berries (ras, cran), banana, wheat. This stuff is a thrill to drink: its like fizzy fruit juice with some alcohol. The alcohol blending in this is flawless. Thoroughly enjoyed.
