Pours a hazy orange with very little head. The nose has notes of banana, pepper, and clove. The taste is bananas and clove up front with some wheat undertones in the finish. There are some light phenols that add warmth. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, warm, and moderately carbonated.

Overall, this is a solid beer. The flavor is on point and the spiciness and alcohol warmth really make for a big beer. The name confuses me a little as this comes across like a really solid weizenbock with little if any notes of a dopplebock. This is worth checking out if you like the style.

From my tasting notes: The Lagunitas version was a much lighter cloudy orange color. There were lots of bananas and cloves in the aroma and my first taste was amazing. I really love this style. Despite the light color the taste was very full and heavy on the caramel malt, banana, and wheat with lots of complexity that hid its high alcohol content well. I thought this was a fantastic beer and Lagunitas treated the style with respect.
