4.68/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy tootsie roll brown with a toasted course head. Gentle pour produces a lot of head. Very unique look.

S: Wow...amazing complexity. Plenty of fruity aromas mixed in with a very rotund wheat. Mmmm...spices, a little clove and sweet toasted malts. And I know I'm not picking everything up. Theres more that my barbaric senses just can't place. Absolutely amazing. I'm looking forward to this.

T: Mind boggling. Any brew dork can make a beer with tons of flavors but it takes a master to balance them and make them all work. A wheat foundation with strong fruits, bananas in particular dominate with spices, clove and others (I think I detect cinnamon but that can't be right, can it?) Sweet dark malts with an unidentified hop bring a complexity and balance that you don't see everyday in a beer. I am truly impressed and a little in awe.

M: Very wet with a medium to thick mouthfeel. It lets you know your effing around with something that has teeth.

D: Jesus, it's 8.2% alcohol but doesn't quite act it. A clear sign of a well balanced, masterful brew.

Overall a stunning brew worthy of your attention. My only disappointment is the lack of a bottling or expiration date. Since its bottle conditioned I really want to know how old it is so I can make this tasting the bar to compare future tastings with. Oh well.

4.75/5  rDev +9.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

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.
