330ml bottle (2010 # 033054) poured into a tulip. Un-filtered, so yeast was topped up.
Dark brown mahogany-like with an amber tinge, massive tan head with good retention, it dissipates into thin bubble layer covering the surface and leaves wee lace, high active yet fizzy carbonation.
Mingling with banana ester, ripe plums, berries, phenolic clove meanwhile malt is also there to yield a complex mixture by a mild bready note.
There are 3 tiers in its complexity of taste. First, fruits ester and malt yield mellow sweetness and fruitiness flavor. Then, clove also alcohol come in position with a warm touch of fusel that also reinforce its sweetness and syrupy solvent. Last, fruits ester and malt reclaim their place with sweetness and fruity tang that cling in the finish also linger in an aftertaste, hop also there at the end with slight bitterness underneath all that mixed up.
Stickily full and syrupy body with good amount of carbonation that yield fine crispness palate which really well suit, finish is dry.
Solid, complex yet delicate brew, don’t let its high alcohol content take you away. I’m now looking to cellar this beer more for anytime need.

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.
