Enormous, light tan head (not surprising for the style), with excellent retention. Brew is a dirty, muddy brown. Gorgeous form, although the opaque brew seems to be hiding something.

Massive banana nose from several feet, but accentuated by a sweet milk chocolate, thick wheat malt, cream, yeast, and a hint of alcohol. Much like a hefe, but dare I state the obvious: darker.

Dark pumpernickel wheat and sweet banana yeast dominate the flavors, with just the tiniest touch of pepper, and a major hint of slightly sour, overripe dark fruit.

Light initial mouthful, yet it quickly announces the full flavor and chewiness as it fills your mouth. Just thick enough to make you think it's chewy, but thin enough to vanish before you try.

A tasty brew, but just not light enough to fill the classic Summer role of a Hefe, and not thick or roasty enough to fill the nightcap role of a regular doppelbock. Nice beer, but it just doesn't quite fit into any category I love.

I hate to do this. BUT SOUR beers shouldn't be considered a beer. MAN these beers run right through me LOL!!! I can never put a sour beer in the top 250 beer list. I think the best part of this beer is the label. No offense but I hate sour beers. Doesn't work for me. Sorry..This isn't an attempted to lower the rating but I have to give my rating good or bad.

One of those "perfect" brews you encounter. Fruity yeasty punch to the face with a subtle alcohol ester present and creamy lingering head. Drank this beer with some foie gras spread on a crusty sourdough resulting in a delicious paring, perfect on a warm overcast day.
