This is a seasonal favorite of mine...
Pours a turbid chestnut, opaque and rich. Head forms, and grows to three fingers when the yeast is added. In the light, the descending yeast looks bizzare, like some sort of alien lifeform.
Yeast unlocks strong aroma of banana bread, clove, nutmeg, and a hint of fruit.
Taste follows the aromas, with and amplified spice and banana/clove combination. Alcohol is present, but lends itself to the rest of the flavors, giving it a warm & spicy twinge.
Similar mouthfeel as a dunkleweizen, yeast adds a bit more fullness to that.
Drinkability is good, 2-3 in one sitting is the max for me, especially in colder months. I've had an occasional "off" bottle (cidery/sour), but this one is generally consistent in quality. Highly recommended!
EDIT 10/07: Cellared 2-year old bottle from August 2005...tartness seems more present, a bit faded from it's former spicy character. Cidery and malty. It seems to lose a bit of it's depth. Not bad, not good. Best fresh...
