Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Without the bottle conditioning yeast. Amber colour, lacey. Not so drinkable. Again a little astringent in the finish and above average carbonation, which it doesn't need.Some chocolate malts,caramel, touch of bannana, some boozyness.

I think this might be my first taste of Brasseurs du Temps.
This beer cost something like $15-$17. for 750ml. Hope it's good.

A- Brown with amber highlights. Almost opaque from what I think might be chill haze. Spongy tan head looks nice.

S- Some sort of a vaseline smell. Tapioca. Banana and a bit of nail polish remover. I can smell something nice in here but there's lots of bad covering it up.

T- Nicer than the smell. Alcohol right from the start but it works. Some sort of hop presence so subtle I don't quite understand it but it tastes good. Nice bready finish. Vaseline creeping up more and more as I drink this making it less and less enjoyable. Even the bready finish which I enjoyed is now, well, covered in Vaseline. Some roastiness in the after-taste. Ate some roasted peanuts and it covered the bad flavours a bit.

M- Medium to high carbonation with some nice foaming action. A little astringent and moderately dry.

O- Don't really want to drink this ever again. Never want to pay this price for this ever again. As I kept drinking it the bad flavours bothered me less and less but there still isn't enough good in here to make me want more.

Bottle: Poured a cloudy deep amber color ale with a nice foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of deep brown sugar malt with light fruity ester. Taste is sweeter then expected with a very solid caramel malt backbone with limited ester notes (less then I was expecting) and loads of residual brown sugar notes. Body is quite full with limited filtration and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Sweeter then expected with too much residual sugar

Bottle from Broue HAHA. From notes.

A - Poured VERY cloudy, dark copper with no visible carbonation and a good eggshell head. Good lacing and good retention.

S - Banana, spice, oranges, and yeast.

T - Doesn't seem weizenbocky. Less bock, more weisse. Banana, bread, spice, less fruity than I would have hoped for. Sweet.

M - Mild/weak carbonation, full body, sweet finish.

O/D - Too sweet and not special. Doesn't seem to fit the style properly and works in different ways.

SERVICE: Bottle

BOTTLED ON: 05-30-14

A:
Pours a cloudy reddish brown with an ample tan head that ends up as a fairly thorough film. Okay retention; spots and splotches of lacing everywhere. (3.75)

S:
Boozy, yeasty, and wheaty. Ripe bananas are really at the forefront with cloves, vanilla, rum, leather, caramelized sugars. (4.25)

T:
Sweet and smooth. Doughy layers of banana, dried cherries, cocoa powder, cloves, leather. Delicious. (4)

M:
Rich and smooth with medium body, extremely well-hidden alcohol, a slow, lingering, delicate finish. Very good. (4.25)

O:
Delicious weiss bier.
This is a very well-made beer with a lot going on. It definitely piqued my curiosity about these guys. The other beer I had by them was pretty solid as well and they seem to have a nice brewpub that I may have to visit soon.
It looks pretty nice, smells like banana bread, and tastes sweet, smooth, and warm. It has a nice, delicate feel and is quite drinkable for as boozy as it is.
Would certainly have again; well worth trying. (4)

3.8/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours an opaque, thick-looking, brown-amber body with a thin, off-white head.

Smell: Rather sweet-scented with upfront scents of brown sugar and caramel given a light dusting of nutmeg, also notes of varied, various fruits giving off a tiny hint of tartness.

Taste: Toasty, bready maltiness with a large layering of heavily sweet caramel sauce. Underneath the chewy malts and sweetness is some fruity accents ranging from bananas to figs to even some stray raisins. Light earthy bitterness. A little vanilla crumb cake. Some spice peeking through the sweetness. Sweet, warming finish.

Mouthfeel: Near full body. Lightly carbonated.

Overall: DumDuminator is a weizenbock on the fuller side of the spectrum and definitely for those with a sweet tooth as its dense with residual sugars.
