500 mL purple-and-gold-labelled bottle. I've never had a Schneider & Sohn beer I didn't like, so I've been anticipating this one for a while.

Pours a muddy brown colour with some amber-copper highlights. Solid two fingers of creamy off-white head on top, retaining quite a while and leaving behind copious quantities of lacing on the sides as it gradually dies down to a half-finger cap. Lots of banana in the aroma, probably more than any wheat beer I've had previously. Plenty of yeast, wheat malt and clove in the nose, as well as some raisins and plums.

I honestly wasn't sure what to think when I took a sip of this; I knew I liked it but there was just too many different things on the palate to pinpoint anything specific. Giving it a little more thought, the usual sweet-ish wheat malt, yeast and banana flavours are pretty dominant, but there is a lot of dark fruit character as well (raisins, plums, figs and dark cherry come to mind). Some chocolate and molasses underneath this, with plenty of spicy clove goodness. Earthy toward the finish, where the ethanol heat becomes noticeable, but works with rather than against the other flavours to give it a drying finish. Not particularly heavy for a beer of its abv; I'd call it medium-bodied. Reasonably mild carbonation gives it a light bite, with a silky-smooth mouthfeel much like their flagship hefe.

This is just amazing stuff. Tons of variety, both in the aroma and flavour, together with an unbeatably smooth feel make this one of the most satisfying brews I've ever had. I think I would still prefer the much lighter Schneider-Weisse on most occasions - but the alcohol in this stuff is well-hidden, which makes it much more suited as a slow winter sipper (EDIT: and slow is not an exaggeration - I am still drinking this an hour after finishing the review!) I will definitely purchase this again at some point.

4.1/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Having a bottle touted as brewed in 2005, aged for 8-9 years. Having not rated in the style before, I wasn't sure I'd like it, to begin with, let alone an aged version (or maybe ill like it better).

Upon pour and what little scent I got, it reminded me of some barleywines or some Belgian dark ales. Raisin notes win out emanating from the muddy-auburn brown liquid. The taste is also of dark fruit-fig and dark brown sugar, a touch of banana and a slight tang of alcohol bite. The feel has a surprising effervescence to it, considering there was so little head or obvious carbonation in the look.

A very smooth, dark-style beer. The bitterness I normally enjoy in a beer is nicely replaced with a bite of alcohol and presumably carbonation. I expected a well-balanced beer when I saw the rating, and I wasn't disappointed.
