look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a brackish brown with a minimalist carbonation of a head. Keeps bubbling up from the bottom of the glass and making little eddies of foam around the edge of the glass.

Smells strongly of dark fruit and a little bit of alcohol.

The taste is pure fruity goodness up front. Lots of sweet sugars rush right in. A little bit grainy and chewy in the middle with a minimal hop ending. Really a sweet beer.

Mouthfeel is very slick and a little drying at the end.

Drink till you can't.

aventinus
hate to do this, cause my reviews have been getting more positive generally, but honest is honest...
previus 4.3 overall

a 3.5 swirled the yeast up before pouring the last bit. a cloudy light-med caramel brown. the head is not much to speak of, fizzy and drops almost instantaneously, leaving a modest ring and negligible lace.

s 3.5 dunkelweisen smell, banana-clove, hints of brown sugar-coated canned pineapple, now bubblegum in large amounts and old bandaids. various alcools become more prominent as it warms.

t 3.5 sweet overripe bananas and some bandaids, finish accompanied by a lemony twang. doesn't taste unlike my recent hefeweizen homebrew.

m 4 smoot sticky medium body but the carb is farily prickly

d 4 if i'd brewed this, i'd probably come down pretty hard on it. not nearly so great as i remember, but still pretty drinkable.
and 3.29 ea this time for .5 litre, not really worth it

prev 4.5, 4.5., 4.5, 3, 4

cinnamon brown, pretty transparent. big head, good retention and lacing.
powerful aroma of red wine, slightly toasted pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, and raisins
taste introduces dates, cherries, and apples. sweetness is there but always held in check. finish is pretty short.
not as full-bodied as expected. lots of carbonation, so no need at all to be timid with the pour.
this is very drinkable. if i were to wish for perfection i'd make a bit fuller and creamier. but very impressed nonetheless. 8.2, not 8%, according to my bottle.

2.29ea?

Pours brown with a reddish hue. Medium and slightly off-white head. Lots of active carbonation and good head retention.

Strong banana/clove aroma. Sweet smelling with plenty of wheat and some bready aroma as well. Taste is banana and bread up front with a clove spiciness. Some caramel sweetness with good biting carbonation. Deep and complex, yet clean and refreshing flavor.

Body is light with a smooth, clean feel making it an incredibly drinkable beer.

Pours with cloudy, dark tones that hint at the dark flavors that round out the taste. Ripe, fruity (banana?) aromas are inviting but are only part of the full flavor profile, which starts wonderfully crisp and finishes with a dark, full flavor. Exceptional mouthfeel. I can't imagine drinking tons of this, but I also can't imagine liking too many beers more than I like this one.

Pours a dark brown with slight orange tinges.
The head is insane, however, it does not stay around for too long.
Smells of dark malts, caramel and alcohol, there are some winey hints to the nose as well.
The taste is amazing, sweet, a little malty and smooth, wow, this is just excellent. There are also many spices, it seems like nutmeg, maybe cinnamon.
This is just one great beer, it's not something I could drink every night, but on cold nights and well whenever really, this very much hits the spot
Overall, this is just a tasty beer, I will definitely return to this from time to time.

A:
Pours a crazy, cloudy brown the color of chocolate milk with a creamy, puffy, perfect tan head. Excellent retention; excellent lacing. Lovely!

S:
Citrus, sunscreen, bananas, doughy yeast. Very mellow.

T:
Fresh, earthy fruit-rind flavors followed by a quick dash of peppers and some low rumbling hoppiness at the finish. Wow.

M:
Rich and creamy, there is good carbonation. Medium body. Exactly what it should be.

O:
Really fantasic stuff! First off, it is gorgeous. I have never seen a beer that looks like this one but it looks exactly how it should. Everything else is as well-balanced and unoffensive as anyone could hope for. Interesting. Fantabulous.
Would get again in a second. Must be heavenly on tap....

Pours a cloudy dark brown, with a huge, light-tan, puffy and cloud like head. Head slowly dimishes to a pretty strong lacing. Aroma is strong on the banana, with some clove sneaking in, too. Flavor is also strong on the banana, with some slight hints of chocolate, and ending with some clove and spiceyness. In the mouth, it has some tingly carbonation, and a tiny hint of alcohol as it gets warmer.

Dark in color like a dopplebock with a nice billowing head.
Smells of dark cherries and some delicious malts, like an abbey style ale.
Tastes great! Has some chocolate hints with dark fruits like plum. YUM

I would buy this everyday if I could afford it.

I was suprised to see how dark the color of this beer is. The smell is also much different than I expected, much more carmel and fruity than I guessed. But the best thing about this beer is the taste. The fruits come through strong, but dissapear a little too quickly. It reminds me a lot of Hoegaarden Forbidden Fruit in that they are infusing many tastes together. It almost creates a wine-like idea. Very Pleased.

ST: 1 pint poured into a weizen glass.

A: Dark and cloudy brown with a half-a-finger slightly off-white head. It looks like dark cider.

S: Banana, clove, fig, wheat, caramel.

T: Warm, toasted wheat, caramel, banana, plum, and light fig.

M: Medium, creamy, and not clean.

O: Great complex flavors insure that careful sipping will reward any fan of great beer. Warm, almost burnt, notes join traditional hefe flavors of banana and citrus in a heavier cider brown beer.
