From a bottle that was several months old.

Dark toffee colored, a little hazy, one inch of fine bubbles. A lot going on in the nose: some banana, a little clove, a little bubblegum, some dark candy and apple. Tastes like it smells, with a wheat bite. Esters everywhere.

Mouthfeel is great, creamy but still a little sharp on the tongue, due to the wheat.

I love this beer, it's like a cross between a dubbel (some dark sugar taste), a tripel (banana), and a wheat. That combination sounds weird on paper, but it works wonderfully. This is one of the best beers I've ever had. (I've had it on tap as well; it's even better in that format.)

Such an amazing beer. Perfectly balanced. Great flavor profile and it packs a really nice subtle punch too.

Appearance is a cloudy reddish brown colour. Pours a medium sized head that fades away to a thin head.

Aroma is sweet with yeast notes, cloves and bananas.

Taste is sweet with typical weiss beer yeast flavour. There is a treacle like flavour with a hint of spice. Some similarities to a Belgian tripel and Belgian strong dark ale but with a lighter, thinner mouth feel. The high ABV is not apparent and it drinks more like a 5.5 or 6 per cent beer.

Overall a pleasant and enjoyable beer. My first Weizen-dopplebock. This did not blow me away but it was a bit more flavousome than a standard hefeweiss. I would be interested to try more in the style.

80/100

Caramel smell. Intense taste. Brown and weiss mix taste. Almost sweet but not. Very nice and interesting beer to try. Love it.
