A - Cloudy dark reddish brown with a creamy off white head that persists for a good while and settles down to a solid flat cap.
S - Fruity, spicy, sweet, and a little winey. Almost that candi smell too.
T - Luxuriously smooth, mild, malty like cereal. I don't get as much of the fruity note from the aroma though there's a hint of banana and maybe a raisiny thing going on. A little sting is left on the tongue and in the back of the throat afterwards. That's unusual - it's almost like a whisper of jalapeno sting minus the jalapeno flavor. It's never too prominent and fades gradually but lasts a really long time. I don't get the strong alcohol taste some others have mentioned.
M - soft, medium-thick, more carbonation than expected
O - A really pleasant, soft, rich, malty beer with a lot going on. Drinks like a thick stout but with much more malt and no bitterness.

A: Dark maple syrup brown, cloudy, a finger of light beige head, opaque so can’t see any carbonation.
S: Very weizen like, dark fruits like dates and figs, ripe bananas, floral, black pepper, ripe banana peels, a slight fermented fruit.
T: Big weizen flavours, dark fruit, dates and figs, ripe bananas, tannic, sweet, big alcohol flavours, little bitterness. Brown sugar.
M: Thick, weighty syrupy body, medium high fine bubbled carbonation.
O: My first in this style. A strong beer that’s well done and a sipper, but very drinkable. Complex good flavours, reminiscent of a weizen.
