Poured from the bottle into a curved wheat ale glass. Best before Sept 2015.

The bottle just foams wonderfully large and controlled, but with a chocolate light tan and fine carbonation. Head fills fistfull with controll, a creamy top, and big swiss cheese appearance. Huge amounts of slow and pinhead carbonation, crawling and creeping, microfine tan bubbles, through a milk chocolate dark orange body. Slightly murky, but just what the doctor ordered nearly perfect.

Mild senses of clove, very faint banana esters. Mild sense of mineral carbonation as well, and just a hint of milky whoppers candy like chocolate. Subtle and simple.

While the aroma seems simple the palate is a bit more obvious. Mid palate fills with a light mineral kick. Huge banana aftertaste mixing in with chocolate for a nice sundae like quality. Mineral rich a little bit, with a lighter feel in the mouth. Slightly water milk chocolate sensations though, but comes with a very airy finish.

Overall a subtler take, but with very noticeable esters that really make a mark. Pretty solid and enjoyable.

Afrer pouring 500 ml bottle (best before may2015) into its orginal wiessbier glass, i can say that it has dark brown colour with borwn thick head. It smells like brown bread and red plump. When you taste it, you can feel caramel flavours. Despite its alc. 7.3%vol, it can not be feeled in the finish. Finally i definitely say that i like this typical german wheat beer

I've had this beer a month ago and I didn't wrote down anything at all. But for what I can recall, this beer was aesthetically beautiful, both the body, the foam and the carbonation were nice. Yet, and even though I'm a huge fan of spicy stuff, I think that this kind of spice doesn't go well at all with any kind of beer. The best thing I can recall from that night was that I couldn't even end this beer because of how strong was the presence of the spice - not that is was strong, but only that the it was too much quantity for the given amount of beer. Yet, I don't find it a bad beer but I'll give it another try in the future.

Not bad for my first Weizenbock. Pours a deep chocolate brown, nice head leaving rapidly and hardly any lacing. Aroma is malty and slightly spicy. Taste is bold, sweet and malty and has some spice overtones. Glad I tried it !!

Great experience, especially for the price! Appearance: dark brown cloudy, with a high cream but fleeting; Aroma: brewer's yeast, caramel; Taste: not felt the touch of spice to a normal Weiss, but the feeling of satiety and pleasure took over. After lunch slept like an angel...
