Slepkov (48) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2018
Pours a brown-black hazy cola, with a thick head that dissipates to a thin but persistent foam. The aroma is stewed prunes and yeasty gingerbread. On the palate it is thinly carbonated and relatively light in body for a dark 8.2% ABV brew. Well balanced sourness, yeastiness, and sweet stewed fruit and pudding. Not particularly alcoholic. A good "christmas" brew.

Cybuch (632) - Muszyna, POLAND - JAN 17, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2018 W aromacie owocowo, banan, slodko, lekki gozdzik, taka esencja z weizena, bardzo przyjemny. Barwa brazowa, metne, piana bardzo obfita, drobna. W smaku pelne, slodkie, bananowe, gozdzikowe. Tez taki weizen na sterydach. Konkretnie przyprawowy. Alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty, jedynie lekko szczypie razem z tymi przyprawami w podniebienie. Wysycenie niskie, jest lekko kwaskowe na finiszu. Bardzo dobre piwo ma wszystko to co powinno miec, jednak to wciaz weizen bock.

malibrat (86) - Pula, CROATIA - JAN 14, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Tamna smeđa boja sa velikom bijelom pjenom. Aromom dominira suho voće i malo karamele. Okus je na tamni slad , malko čokolade i osjeti se blaga alkoholna aroma. Ma to je jedno 'prekrasno' pivo i nisam još ćuo nekoga da mu se ne sviđa , i kod mnogih je, kojima ne paše malo izražajnija slatkoća Belgijskih piva ovo pivo na vrhu , jer ima nešto od njih ali u umjerenijoj dozi. Treba paziti na alkohol od 8,2% jer poslje popijene 2 flaše moglo bi biti problema ;)

Ratman197 (15624) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2018
500 ml bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of wheat, caramel, yeast, fruitiness and clove. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of caramel, wheat, yeast, bubblegum and light clove with a smooth lingering spiced caramel finish.

defabant (60) - ITALY - JAN 4, 2018
Una weiss dopplebock dal colore rosso ciliegia con riflessi ambrati. Versa una schiuma corposa che persiste durante la bevuta. Aroma molto buono di malto e banana. Gusto complesso che richiama il malto e l'aroma di banana con qualche nota fruttata. Molto beverina nonostante gli 8,2 gradi alcolici, l'alcol infatti resta molto ben nascosto. Ottima sensazione al palato, cremosa e con un finale che lascia la bocca pulita. Un birra ottima.

pbl (174) - Kraków, POLAND - JAN 4, 2018
Two kinds of aromas are dominating, banana, clove from weizen and caramel, bread, cereal like in bock. Heavy sweetness, lightly bitter, medium sourness. Flavours of ripe banana, caramel and plums. Medium body, creamy, average carbonation.

GreenCat (216) - SLOVENIA - JAN 1, 2018
0,5 l bottle. Pours reddish brown with decent off white head that fades to thin veil quickly. Aroma is bock like malt base, dried fruit, plumes, roast, caramel, liquorice, but also ripe banana, some light clove and yeast one usually expects in weissbier. Alcohol is well hidden. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter and slightly sour. Body is full, texture creamy and carbonation average to lively. Finish is medium, dried fruit and mild spicy bitterness. Well rounded and drinkable, superb dessert beer.

Bitek (858) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 31, 2017
Ciasteczka, banany, dużo goździków, karmel, suszone owoce, trochę alkoholu. Całkiem sporo ciała, treściwe, sycące, Średnio słodkie. Średnia, przyprawowo-alkoholowa goryczka, wysokie wysycenie.

m.mahu (200) - Iasi, ROMANIA - DEC 31, 2017
Had this beer many times. Aroma is a perfect blend of cloves and banana, and some overriped fruit. Taste is wheat, caramel, fruit, cloves and banana. Very good mouthfeel, slick. It does not feel like a 8.2% beer. Goes down easily. Good carbonation, medium body, smooth. Would have again any time.
