4.25/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

The bottle says 120515 I suppose this means May 15th, 2012 is the bottle date.

A: Medium to dark brown depending on where you see it in the glass. Very hazy and looks a lot like black tea. White fluffy full head which looks great, accompanied by great lacing. Really wonderful looking beer.

S: I get some spicy scents like coriander and pepper. A wood lacquer smell to it, with some fruit like a date.

T: Very sweet tasting without tasting like syrup. Each sip gives different flavors with different complexities which is nice. Sometimes I get some grain flavor, some fruity fig flavor floats back there, and a bit of alcohol flavor mixed in with clove. Some plum flavors on the side of my mouth. A little bit of cardboard flavor so perhaps some oxidation? Lots of mellow phenols. I feel that it is important to note that this is a very clean tasting and clean feeling beer. It's not muddled with flavors.

M: Fantastic mouthfeel. It fills the mouth up in all corners, and fits like a glove. It is very easy to drink, and in no way feels like a >8% beer. Very mellow in the mouth without any bitterness bite, carbonation bite, alcohol burn or bite...just a very smooth drinking beer.

O: Overall I really enjoyed the beer. I thought it was nice and mellow with a lot of flavor. It's one of the few beers I've had from Schneider Weisse that still tastes very good when imported...if not the only. I would drink it again, but I would love to try it on tap.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A: a medium murky cloudy brownish color with a minimal half finger eggshell head. No glass lacing.

S: lots of fruits and spicy clove smells. Some sweet caramel and yeast is prominent.

T: Wow this is amazing. Yeasty flavors jump with some wheat and dark fruits. Cherry, raisins, banana, clove, caramel, and some slight floral hops. Finish comes back to the wheat and dark fruits but finishes dry and satisfying. Wow, fantastic.

M: Full, coating, perfect carbonation, hardly any alcohol for the abv.

O: this is a terrific beer, one I would never guess I would love so much since this is not my favorite style. A fantastic beer.

This is a must try and will now be a staple in my fridge. Awesome.

Thanks to kjyost for this one.

Poured from a 500ml bottle, bottled in 2004. Special aged release by the brewery.

Pours a light brown body the color of light cola; head starts thick but disappears in the blink of an eye. Dark plums and molasses are in the aroma. Flavor is a shell of what it could be but there are glimpses of what i know this beer is. Little carbonation and a bit of oxidation finish things off. Nice marketing ploy by the brewery but this should not be aged so long IMO.

4.59/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The pour produced a tawny brown body with a thick, chunky head. Spicy, estery aroma; banana and rye; clove-like. Big caramel and ripe dark fruit flavors; fruitcake rich; prunes and figs. Heavy body; thick and rich mouthfeel.

A decent look, but it's the very unique and powerful aroma that immediately draws you into this beer at first. And then the rich, powerful flavors grab a hold of you and won't let you go. The flavors are deep and complex, very intriguing with wild zig-zags of sugary sweet surprises all tempered with a tempered boozy edge and and most sublime bit of hop bitterness to temper the sweet peaks. The wheat really adds a nice fruity character to things. A nice hyper-hefeweizen/doppelbock synthesis.
