Tasted On: 07-07-2012
Freshness: 2011 Vintage
Packaging: 330 ml brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Aventinus Weizen glass
Purchased: Single from Grace's, Nashville

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!

Served from bottle into a frosted Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock glass (proper). Poured a deep dark red-orange (almost brown) with a three finger light tan colored head that subsided to one finger very slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, banana, wood, spices, subtle sweet alcohol, dark fruit, and wheat. The flavor was of sweet malt, banana, fruit, spices, sweet alcohol, dark fruit, and wheat. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. The balance on this one was truly awe-inspiring as all the components in this one blended really well together and none of them overtook the others. You would never guess this one to be 12% as it wears it so well. Definitely a must try for anyone who calls themselves a beer fan.
