a really lovely dark wheat lager, deep and rich, simple too, we need more of these in the domestic market. dark bronze in color with lot of carbonation collecting into a large just off white head tall and fluffy and permanent. notes of brown butter, caramel, and candy sugar flow from the beer, lager yeast gives it a bread character too, its sweet, but its also hearty and grain driven and probably an acceptable substitute for a meal. there is some molasses-like spice in the flavor, with all the sweeter grain, and the dark wheat malt gives it a robustness and seasonal versatility unrivaled in american bocks. cleaner finish for how layered the beer is, and how big it is. massive body, but kept alive and moving by prominent carbonation that never quits even when it warms up. alcohol stays in the shadows, and malty goodness does the heavy lifting. a great beer for cold weather and for food. heavy meat, potatoes, and roasted vegetables come to mind, but pineapple upside down cake worked as a heck of a pairing too.

Quite dark ruby-mahogany in color with a big and smooth light-khaki head. Very bready and fruity aroma of banana bread, moderate clove, a fruit medley of fresh strawberry and mango, some nutmeg, and yeasty wheat-bread dough. A bold banana flavor combines with a sweet cream tone to create a decent impression of a banana split. Nutmeg, allspice, and clove drift in the background along with a ciabatta dough flavor. Medium body with a soft, creamy texture.

750ml, Fall 2013
A: Medium tan brown color. Some light does get through this one. Pretty looking beer. Off white, light tan head. Some sticky lacing.
S: Bready yeast character. Getting some of that banana. Dark fruits: prune and plum and raison.
T: Banana bread. Yeast like you would get from a Belgian Quad. Dark fruit flavors. Finish is actually fairly clean. It’s easy to drink for the style.
M: Medium bodied. The carbonation helps with drinkability.

A: Pours a deep mahogany with a fluffy, very dense, thick, dark tan head that faded into a thick rocky long lasting fuzzy film that left patches of soapy lacing down the glass.
S: Banana, caramel, butterscotch, brown sugar, slight booze, and toast on the nose.
T: Heavy and potent flavors of butterscotch, bananas fosters, caramel, slight vanilla, more butterscotch and ripe, sweet, banana. There’s mild cocoa, raisin, and dark fruit in the finish, with hints of caramel and spice in the aftertaste.
M: Fuzzy, very soft carbonation; decadent and rich full body, chewy mouthfeel. Slight boozy finish. Potent.
O: Boozy and rich but great flavors and fairly smooth. Might do some good to leave in the bottle for a bit.

a: a real dark amber, almost to the point of being purple. some nice crystal ruby red notes coming from the bottom. solid 3 finger tan head that looks thick enough to rest a coin on
s: sweet caramel, and berries. wheat, and a nice amount of clovey yeast. fades back to the nice sweet berry aroma
t: taste follows what you would expect from a weizenbock. sweet berries and wheat. sweet caramel malts play the part of background real nice here. i'm also picking up a nice amount of plums and figs in the flavor here as well. finish is grassy and crisp.
m: fuller side of medium. carbonation is there, but minimal. leaves syrupy feel.
o: not great, but better than average. nice mix of malts, and sweet fruit flavor here. this can be refreshing, while also heavy on the palate at the same time. worth a drink for sure. there is no alcohol in the flavor so be careful on this one.

4.24/5 rDev +14.6%
A: Pours a much darker than expected deep brown color with a thin cream colored head. Leaves subtle tracks of lace with each sip.
S: Sweet and malty on the nose with some banana, clove, persimmon, bready malt, spice cake and some dark fruit. Smells really nice.
T: Opens sweet with some caramel, raisin bread, banana nut loaf and a good amount of clove and brown sugar. Finish is a touch spicy with a good amount of malty sweetness and just a kiss of alcohol to round things out. A really nice rendition of the style.
