Week #2 of Bored at Work Beer Reviews.

Poured into a large, tulip-shaped Riedel glass.
This was actually my first drain-pour about 5 years. It was too big for me then. Couldn't stand it. Funny how things change over time...
First things first, this is a gorgeous beer. Large frothy just off-tan head. Great retention. Started out about 3 fingers and eventually faded to a nice covering of the beer. Eventually the head became a scale model picture of the Milky Way. Just swirls of miniature beer foam planets floating on top of my glass of beer. Very clear, light amber color.
Immediate huge nose of clove, anise, caramelized bananas. This is what fruitcake should smell like. A bit of smokeyness, fresh baked shortbread cookies.
The taste is just as complex. Malty clove induced bananas foster, minimal hops presence. Getting some grain (wheat, duh). Quite sweet, almost bubblegummy. Definitely not the drain pour it once was.
Nice full mouthfeel. Lingers nicely from sip to sip. Not overly carbonated. Very drinkable, even for 8.2%. Definitely one of my go to beers for the cooler months.

Damn, I wish I never poured that first one out...

Just an all around great spring brew. Had the appearance of a bock with the smell and taste of a hefe-weizen. Looked like a coca-cola with a perfectly formed and long lasting white colored head.

Smelled like clove and wheat malt. Very sweet, perfectly spiced, and quite inviting. I could bury my nose in this all night, but eventually I'd end up drinking it all. Tastes like clove as well. The estery banana and bubblegum flavors are perfect. Great light berry flavors. The yeast profile is excellent

The mouthfeel is perfect. Medium to light bodied and well carbonated without being harsh. If I didn't see the 8% on the bottle, I would have thought this was in the high 5 range, because I could drink this all night.

I've been looking to try this one again, and was really excited to see it on tap at the Big Hunt. Poured a delicious deep brown color with a big tan head. Nose is all over the place, hugely wheaty, with dried fruit, yeast, a ton of spices, roasted malt, raisins. Flavor is totally similar, and amazing. A ton of mixing flavors and fruit, citrus, prunes, raisins, yeast, wheat, caramel and roasted malt. Man is this a delicious brew. Feel is fairly full bodied and perfect for the style. Overall, I'm yet again blown away. This one is outstanding.
