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.

Poured a dark ruby color, the color of a British style porter, around 30 to 40 SRM, with a thick, white, long-lasting head and plenty of yeast in suspension. Creamy mouthfeel. Rich, malty sweetness with a mildly tart finish. Aromas of clove and grapes and berries. No hop aroma, mild to no hop bitterness, mild to no alcohol. This is the benchmark for a wheat dopplebock. Rich, complex and fruity.
