An excellent beer, it totally blew me away last year when i first tried it. Decided to treat myself to another last night. A beer that deserves all its praises.

Appearance
Pours a deep, clear, colour, almost as dark as mahogony. A one finger pale tan head formed on the pour. The mildly carbonated brew produced a very thin collar of lacings.

Aroma
Rich aromas of wheat and barley malts. Nutty whole wheat, hints of banana, toffee, and the rich aromas of dark fruits, dates prunes, raisins, all overtop of a hint of cocao. A mild grassiness from the hops is also evident.

Taste
Much like the nose, a rich whole wheat, nutty, banana bread with dark fruits incuded as above, with a touch of cocao powder thrown in for even more richness and complexity. The mild hops add an additional layer of flavour to this rich brew with their mild, understated grassy and decaying leaf character.

Mouthfeel
A rich, smooth, almost creamy brew, loaded with wheat and barley malt. Well balanced according to style, with a pleasing hop accent at the finish. This medium to full bodied brew gave some alcohol warmth as it was savoured.

Drinkabilty
An excellent, decadent sipper. Great for a winter night, or to sustain onself throughout lent. Also a truely great example of a wheat beer, and how wheat beers can be as rich and full in flavour as any all barley brews. Best wheat beer I've had the pleasure of enjoying yet. Highly recommended.

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.
