Vintage 2003

A: From the moment the liquid hit the glass, a noisy head began to rise, that was actually larger than I had expected from a four year old beer. Eventually, the off-white bubbles settled down to a mere whisp on top. When held to light, the beer itself displayed a transparent, Brazilian cherry wood brown, hints of garnet present giving it a rather unique appearance.

S: Lots of clove and spice in the nose, with the phenolic bubblegum and banana notes playing a more subdued role. The scent of alcohol is a lot more assertive than I recall when drinking it fresh. The bouquet piques my interest as to how the beer has aged and hints at what flavors have come forth over time.

T: Definitely a lot more of the spiciness and clove features on the palate, while, as the bouquet indicated, the alcohol was also more pronounced. However, it wasn't overbearing, but rather complemented the spicy notes and crescendoed toward the finish. Aftertaste is a residue of malt and somewhat of an echo of spice, hard to explain, but it comes back in a faint way after the peppery finish has subsided.

M: Due to the aging, the mouthfeel has lost its crisper edge of course, but this is not such a bad thing. Any weizen normally will have a rather light body and thin quality to its texture, and this one is merely a more relaxed version of the original. Carbonation is still more than I had expected from the head formation.

D: Quite drinkable, as much as it ever was, but flavors drop off a bit, which is to be expected. On a side note, swirling the yeast at the bottom and adding just a bit brought out some more phenolic character that was rather interesting. Overall, I found this aged version to be enjoyable, but it may have been even better after only a year or so, rather than four. Still, an interesting experiment with tasty results.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

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.

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.
