Found it in our local beer store, what a surpise! We had seen this beer before elsewhere, but there it had been offered in a case only, and if I remember it right, the asked price had been around 80$. We can't afford to spend that kind of money on a beer we have never even tried, so we had to let that go.
Sold in single bottles for 4.50$.
That's more like it!
It poured hazlebrown (!) into our glasses (german wife and I share all beers), the head was very thick and dark beige (even a bit brownish). And that thick head stayed!
Fruity nose gave a slight hint of lemon. Wife even thought of pineapples.
I am trying it - wow!
The alcohol (8.2% Vol.) hits me in the face immediately. I am thinking of Brandy while sipping this fine bavarian beer.
Nice tingeling with every sip, yet a very smooth mouthfeel.

Poured from a 1 pint .9 oz bottle into a a tulip glass. Now the most interesting part is not what came out if the bottle but what stayed in it. At some point I had stored the bottle on its side in a wine fridge (for 3 months after buying it) and found an exorbitant amount of yeast stuck to the side of the bottle. Now to me this is a good thing keeping natural unfiltered flavor with the brew especially the Bavarian style. Unlike any other beer this was a cloudy chocolate brown color. There was large amount of white head when poured violently from the bottle. Hints of chocolate malt taste similar to the color. Has the sweetness that accompanies bocks but also the breast wheat vibe. Has a good balance between wheat and malt with an elevated abv of 8.2% which is barely noticeable to the pAlate.
Don't think I've had a beer of this style before. It seems like American craft brewers would have their work cut out for them with this style.
