Poured into a pils glass.
A: A beautiful dark amber with a huge 3-4 finger head. The head settles pretty quickly (likely due to the high ABV). No lacing to speak of.
S: Aromas of the obvious banana. Also picking up sweet grains, some funky peat, and a little clove.
T: WOW! Delicious and complex. Banana, clove, dark cherry, some chocolate, sweet malts. There is a distinct sweetness that comes out as the beer warms.
M: Medium to chewy. This is smooth and creamy with some body. Carbonation is perfect. Alcohol seems non-existent at 8.2%.
D: This beer goes down smooth. Amazing beer. I love this brew. Definitely in my top 10. I am blown away by the flavor, balance, and complexity. The finish leaves me wanting more and more. World class stuff for sure!

Bought a bottle of this at Kurtz/Vreny's in Duluth, GA. Pours a deep brown with a very strong head. Smells is slightly spicy with a hint of dried fruit. Taste is very malty, with the malts and the dried fruity taste being the primary taste. Pretty tasty. Decent amount of carbonation in the mouthfeel. A very drinkable weizenbock.

Gorgeous, rich mahogany color. Slight cloudiness, as yeast was swirled and poured into the class. Huge rocky beige head slooooooowly settles to the thinnest cap of foam.
Nose is nicely clovey, with a complex bready/malty base. Some fruitiness as well.
Goes a bit wrong in the mouth. The clove is there, although a bit strong, but the sweet malt is an almost over-whelming presence. Not enough bitterness to balance the too sweet palate, and the alcohol is apparent on the finish - always a turn-off for me. Perhaps an off-bottle, but I couldn't finish it. Based on reputation, I'd be willing to give it another shot, but this was disappointing.

This is my first experience with any kind of non-american wheat beer. I probably should have started with a traditional hefe, but a buddy bought this for me at the bar one night.
Appearance: Pours out a thick, brown head. Head was much darker than I expected. However, with the consistency of the beer, I was surprised at how quickly the head dissipated. Dissapointing... The beer itself was an extremely hazy brown. Under the dim light of the Electro Lounge, it almost looked as if there were bits of sediment floating around.
Smell: Heaven. Rich chocolate and carmel with a touch of vanilla. Little bit of dark fruit, almost like raspberries. Delightful.
Taste: Much more of the subtle layers of chocolate. Still got a lot of carmel, as well. Layers of vanilla were intermingled . As the beer got warmer, (was served at about 40 degrees F), I began noticing the presence of the yeast more. Lingering notes of banana bread and soft mocha replaced what was previously chocolate and carmel. Incredible taste.
Mouthfeel: Incredibly full bodied beer. Some may argue viscosity and an almost "syrupy" mouth feel, but I believe this beer is pure velvet. Slides across the tongue depositing lingering pockets of taste to delight the palate. Very nice.
Drinkability: The only thing about this beer that I had any issue with. Not that it's necessarily hard to drink, but that it is something that should not be consumed in any sort of excess due to it's overall sweetness, amount of yeast and alcohol content. Not a beer to trifle with, which is sad, because it's so delicious.

Had this one at a German restaurant. Pours out a purplish,brown color, not very clear, but with ample carbonation. First, I got a crazy big head that dissipates quickly, down to a thin white ring at the top of the brew. There is no lace to be had.
The aroma is sweet grapes, kind of winelike accompanied by dark roasted malt. It really jumps out at you after opening the bottle. The taste is a nicely flavored warming alcohol along with some spicy fruit. It is very well blended between these two flavors. There is also a nice blend with malts and hops. Goes very well with German food. The doublebock style is becoming one of my favorites. Very good beer.

bouteille brune de 500ml,
très belle bière brune -rouge orangé avec une mousse épaisse et onctueuse, elle a nez de blé, de sucre-brun, de caramel,et son goût est agréable, rond, elle se termine sur une finale de chocolat avec cerises aux marasquin, ce qui est exquis.
