Thanks to Blake @ Trackside in Medicine Hat...the place to buy beer in the SE corner of Alberta...

Damn! that's one dark looking weizen..hazy, with so-so head and lacing. My wife said it looked liked someone dissolved a bunch of those old coke bottle cap candies and then added a little milk...can't argue..it does look like that.

Aroma is all faint weizen, slight banana and clove spice. maybe a bit darker malt roast in there, but overall...faint

Herbal, almost medicinal taste..hints of weizen, banana, et al...alcohol is well masked until the finish, when it tends to leave a certain astringent feel on the inner cheeks of the mouth.

Given the style, quite thin with an almost medium light feel..

Would like to make the trek to SW Montana an try this on tap..not a bad substitute if the better Bavarian beers are not available..

I love Bayern brews, one of the best breweries in the state of Montana for sure, i love the dark taste of the Faceplant beer, I always look forward to the end of November not only for the start of ski season, but also the release of this magnificent brew! Cheers!!

3.84/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a standard pint glass. The bottle has a freshness date of May 2013 (reviewed on April 16).

Appearance: pale reddish brown with a 1/8 inch tan colored head with minimal lacing. Thin strands of carbonation rising to the surface. Lovely swirls as the head recedes- reminiscent of a spiral galaxy or a caramel roll.

Smell: malty, fruity with a hint of apple. Quite subdued, with barely a hop aroma.

Taste: Malt bomb, baby! Deliciously complex, with herbal spice, subdued bitterness. The aftertaste is of spice, warming alcohol, maybe a little brown sugar, and a slight bit of sourness. Possibly some diacetyl. The hops are present, but allow the natural sweetness and bitterness of the malt to come through.

Mouthfeel: Crispness, lingering, even down into the throat, giving a brief feeling of fullness in the stomach.

Overall: I've been drinking Bayern beer since the 80s, and have never been disappointed. This genuine brewmeister makes the best lagers in this region, hands down- and perhaps in the entire country.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a weizen glass in high elevation Libby, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- Two finger light brown head, small bubbles, but a fluffy head. Decent retention, chocolate brown color with high clarity considering the darkness.

S- Toasted malts, some chocolate and roast smells. Warm malts, very low hop profile until the end of a good sniff.

T- Somewhat bitter with a strong toasted malt backbone to calm down the bitterness of the hops.

M- Thick, wet and sticky feel.

O- Not my favorite style, but not bad by any means. Balances the hops and sweet malts well. Above average. Enjoyable.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #61 (Feb 2012):

LOOK: Cloudy leather brown

SMELL: Toasted malt, dense dark bread, lemongrass, fainted roasted grain, spicy, herbal

TASTE: Smooth, silky, fullish body, malty, warming, toasty, husky, bready, biscuity, dried hay, ripe pears, slightly sweet, herbal hop, cocoa powder, dried coffee, spicy alcohol, grainy finish

This is what we in the beer-geek world would call a “malt bomb.” Explosively complex, the decoction mash is tooled here with precision to create this amazing brew with tons of malt depth. Another beer that shows that German Wheats brewed by American brewers don’t have to be clove-and-banana palate killers.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: rich brown hue with a pretty heavy haze and two thick fingers of frothy tan head. Quite good.

Smell: quite malty aroma with a big grainy character. Not much wheat aroma, but it's definitely got that sickly-sweetness of a strong lager. Not bad for the style, but not outstanding either.

Taste: flavor is a little wheatier than the aroma, but it's still got that bock-y over-sweetness and some not-so-great yeasty fermentation byproducts. Again, within the style, but a bock (and even a doppel or weizenbock) can be done a lot cleaner.

Mouthfeel: big body with a decent carbonation and a rich smoothness. Not exactly creamy, but not bad.

Overall: if you are really into bocks in general, this beer might work for you. I just think it could be a bit cleaner.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance is a dark amber brown supporting a steady healthy head leaving spotty lace. Smell is faint with dark malt, dark fruits and yeast. Taste of the dark malt, prunes and a little spiciness from the yeast. Mouthfeel has a medium body with a good spike of carbonation. For an American Weizen its not bad with the extra kick.

Poured into a weizen glass. Pours a very dark red brown, two finger fine light tan head with great retention and lacing. Looks nice. Aroma of sweet malt with a hint of wheat. Flavor is rich sweet malt and dark fruit, only slight wheat and clove weizen elements. A slight rye-like sourness, but melds with the sweet malt nicely. Medium bodied with slight creaminess. Finish is a bit dry and has a slight hop kick with lingering malt flavors. Nice flavor integration. I really enjoyed this one.
