Poured from a bottle into an Erdinger weissbier glass. The pour is a murky brown with a huge crown of dense foam that lasts longer than styrofoam. On the nose I get sweet, bready notes, banana-like esters and spicy clove-like phenols.
The beer has a medium body and a nice, complex flavor. I get nice, sweet bready malty notes up front. They are accompanied by a slightly grainy, yeasty, wheat flavor as well as some bananas, pears, lemon, vanilla, and some dark fruit notes at mid-palate. The spicy clove-like notes promised by the nose arrive near the back of the throat and contribute to a tasty, satisfying finish. Unlike the eisbock, this one seems to let the malty notes play second fiddle to the fruit and spice.
What a wonderfully complex beer. My only complaint is that it's a bit sweet and could use a bit more tartness. Nevertheless, I feel as if I could spend hours sipping on it and writing down all the different flavors I encounter. If all you drink are stouts and IPAs, you need to start exploring classic beers like this one. Pick up a bottle, close your eyes, tune out the noise, and just sip and enjoy.

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.
