Poured from a 500 ml Euro bottle into an Aventinus glass.
A--Pours a deep raisiny brown body with plenty of fizzy white head, about two and a half fingers. Cap dissipated quickly and didn't leave much behind, but the bottom of the glass funnelled bubbles to the surface for the entire tasting.
S--Oh dear God does this smell heavenly. Real sock of old tropical fruit, real deep brown banana, mellowed by a touch of vanilla. I detected less clove and more sweet maraschino cherry and yeast, with an almost palpable wheat and banana aroma.
T--Follows the nose faithfully with some added complexity, especially on the back end, which has a raisin and malt character to it that I really enjoy. This thickens and creeps into the middle of the palate as the beer warms and the esters recede a bit. A full, satisfying taste spectrum that I could actually see pairing well with brown sauces and heavier, winter meat dishes. Anyone down for braising pork jowls for six hours with me?
M&D--More bread-like than any other wheat beer I've had, and so pretty chewy, which I actually like. Carbonation is active without stinging, and the ABV doesn't really come through until the end and the beer has warmed considerably. This is kind of a sock to the jaw after one, so not the most drinkable. More worth savoring than swigging.
One of my favorite beers, hands down. I like this beer the first time I tasted it so damn much I immediately went out and bought the attendant glass to it. Superior product--masterful!

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.
