Poured from a 33cl bottle into a Duvel tulip.
A This ale is a deep, rich brown with plum highlights. A billowy, off-white head sits about two fingers high from the rough pour, and slowly settles into a thin lace. Small flecks of sediment settle to the bottom of the glass.
S The scent is a bit subdued. Fruits hit right off the bat. Bananas, plums, and some herbal, slightly grassy notes are present. Later on roasted grains and a bit of chocolate come through.
T The taste is a bit hard to describe. A fruit sweetness hits right away with a taste of banana, grapefruit and mango. Some medicinal flavors and roasted notes follow, along with a strong alcohol warmth.
M Thick and creamy with a very low amount of carbonation.
D This is a nice slow sipper with some kick to it. The flavors are pleasant, but seem muddled when compared to the original. The warmth form the alcohol is strong, but not off-putting.
Overall, this is a really good beer, but not as good as the original when fresh. I'm sure with some age on it it would be perfect.

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.
