Enjoyed a half-liter bottle on a cold winter's night. Why do I drink so much wheat beer in the winter? Denial? Anyhow, this particular selection fits the bill nicely. Pours up a beautiful reddish brown murk with ample light tan foam. Aroma grabs you by the olfactory bulbs with sweet brown apple, poached pears, molasses, caramelized bananas, and ample spice. The aroma is just a prelude. Palate is rich, full, sweet, and complex, with a ton of clove and cassia spice phenolics like its lighter Schneider weisse cousins (albeit on steroids), rich toffee, the aforementioned caramelized bananas, dates and plums, and a little wood or dry cacao powder to provide some bitterness. Chewy syrupy body stands out but the spicy punch prevents things from being overbearingly saccharine and I can certainly understand the comparisons to a Belgian dark ale. After a while all the spicy notes get earthy and bitter. Nevertheless, still has that wheaty refreshing character that you get from the best weizens. Another great "dessert beer", like Christmas cake in a bottle except infinitely better than the brick-hard shit that hides in your grandma's deep freeze. A world-class brew and I don't think the high ratings I have provided are too generous. If you are interested in more background info about this beer, read "Brewing With Wheat" by Stan Hieronymus. There are tech specs in there for this beer and Tap 7. Old school stuff.

A - Poured with a four-finger, creamy and lightly tan head. Lots of lacing, and dissipates quickly. The color is a dark burnt orange. Very cloudy, can't really see through it. Very bubbly.
S - Strong wheat notes. Malty and some sweet dark fruits.
T - Sweet dark fruits at the front, followed by a malty middle. The finish is wheaty. Not bitter at all.
M - Medium heavy to thick in body. Alcohol and carbonation burn are minor.
O - Really like the taste of this one. I like the maltiness and sweetness. Wheat is not necessarily my favorite taste, but it works here. My favorite weizenbock so far.
