500ml bottle poured into a tulip glass-pours dark reddish brown with 2 fingers of pale beige head and lacing travels all to bottom of glass; rich yeasty brown bread and malt smell and taste with smooth feel on the mouth-not too heavy but still had to crank up the AC to enjoy in West Africa

500ml Bottle from Beers of Europe (£2.99) drank of Christmas:
Weihenstephan is definitely one of my favorite brewery's and personally I don't think anyone makes a better wheat beer so I was very much looking forward to this one. The beer was a nice one with plenty of malt sweetness and dark fruits coming through, sure it didn't quite match the brewery's flagship hefeweizen but it was still a very nice doppelbock with enough going for it to make things interesting. A decent beer well worth picking up but it's not one of the brewery's best offerings, mainly because they have already set the bar so high.

Very rich sweetness, but not cloying. Good slick mouthfeel. Delicious. Decadent. Sweet Raisins.
One of the best I've had! I will have to try this next to Salvator, see which is better.
