A: Huge tan head of 5+ fingers sits on this semi-hazy, mahogany colored beer. A fair amount of lacing and head retention are present.

S: Rich and dark fruits are in the aromas, with caramel malt notes and some woody aspects. I get faint reminders of the typical weizen yeast smells of banana and clove. Delightful to smell.

T: Wow, this is a powerful tasting beer, full strength and of alcohol, like a bourbon. Savory, spicy, and sweet with fruit flavors such as raisin and plum.

M: Carbonation is in the medium to high range, with a full, creamy body. The finish is rich and full of alcohol warming. Aftertastes are of molasses and caramel, with a spicy kick to boot.

O: A very strong and complex beer, with reminders of both a weizen-bock and beer aged in spirit barrels. Highly recommend!

A- Pours a deep, almost purple tinged brown. Not an overwhelming head, though since it is from bottle and I made sure to pour it to produce a less than thick head...

S- Smells fruity, with some of those clove and spice smells of a good hefeweizen.

T- Fruity and spicy, like if you crossed a really good hefeweizen with a proper ale. Complex and very tasty.

M- A good full mouth feel, but not to syrupy or anything.

O- I will no doubt always have this beer in my fridge. Then again, I'm slightly biased in that I always liked their hefeweizens above all others I have tried. Even so, definitely try to get this one, you will not regret it!
