Bottle: solid dark brown 330mL bottle with a stylish German-style label. Has me expecting something high quality.
Appearance: very dark amber brown in colour with a limited, fine carbonation just visible. A two-finger head drops quickly to a solid, creamy one-finger with decent retention. Looks good!
Aroma: carries some definite dark wheat aromas - there are the usual bananas and cloves, but with an undercurrent of sweet malts, molasses and dark cherry.
Taste: there are the usual bananas and cloves, but with an undercurrent of sweet malts, molasses and dark cherry. A wonderfully rich and complex beer.
Aftertaste: a touch of sherry accompanies some warming alcohol that fills the mouth nicely.
Mouth feel: rich, velvety and smooth, with a low carbonation. Slides down easy - very nice!
Overall: this is an exceptional German dark wheat ale - smooth in texture with a complexity I haven't seen before in a dark wheat. Top notch!
