Amazed to find it in Lagos, Nigeria....half liter bottle poured into a tulip glass; cloudy amber color with thick 2 finger foam; smells of cloves banana bread and huge weizenbock arroma- improves as it warms; taste is ballanced and HUGE; overall - going back to the store to buy them all-call me greedy, but life is short!

This is a premium, incredible beer with "world best beer" awards. The color is a golden yellow with a slight, even haziness (a tulip beer glass showcases the beauty of the color and pleasant aroma) and light, white frothy head. The smell is lightly banana, pear, clove and warmed bread. The taste is balanced and smooth with a depth of a light pear/banana flavor amidst the wheat/rye texture. It is smooth, clean and rich in taste. It is excellent with a heavy breakfast of meat and potatoes, delightful with a hot soup and buttered bread on a winter day and compliments every meat or fish meal I have tried. I highly recommend this beer. It has a taste, quality, consistency and depth of color, taste and smell that is not encountered often in the world. It is a distinct beer. The beer, as it warms, from the refrigerator releases more subtle flavor and richness of taste. This is a beer for special occasions and a reward for a job well done.

Expected it to be a bit darker in color, but everything else was superb!
