500ml bottle

Appearance: Hazy dark brown, voluminous tan head that resists dissipation and leaves good lacing

Smell: As soon as I started pouring I smelled ripe bananas. Theres also vanilla, cloves, some chocolate and caramel, and other fruits.

Taste: Complex mix of bananas, vanilla, cloves, chocolate, caramel, other fruits and malts. There is a little nuttiness and a smidge of booze, but there really isn't much in the way of wheat flavors. The yeast is the star here, with the malt backing it up.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, highly carbonated without having a bite, almost creamy consistency

Overall: Fantastic. Completely deserving of its high rank on the top 100 German brews. I would gladly go for another if I had bought more.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a nice dark cloudy copper color with a big off-white head. It also has good lacing

S - Strong aroma of the sweet wheat which gives it a nice chocolate orange aroma.

T - Tart wheat flavor. Kind of lemony but with backgrounds of malty sweet. There is a strong alcohol aroma on the end of it.

M - Very smooth and easy to drink, if it wasnt for the tartness of it.

D - For its style I think it is very drinkable. Nice would be nice on cool summer nights.

Aroma -bannana, bright plum, alcohol, berries, clove, - basically smells like hefe with great added complexity, little sugary

App - opaque plum color with loud, lively carbonation, head retention is not awesome but nontheless impressive for the strength of the beer

Taste - Wonderfully deep malt flavor is kept levitating on the palate by the wheat. Hefe yeast's signature banana/ clove combo runs through the whole thing with a nice raisin character. Stone fruits appear every now and then. Wheat dries out the finish. Alcohol is there but you've really gotta look for it.

MF- Wheat and carbonation really seem to play a key role in keeping this strong, full-bodied beeer from coating the palate.

What a magical beer style. Complex but humble and, knowing the Germans, probably a realatively simple grain bill. This is maybe the most drinkable beer upward of 7% ABV I've ever had. Could get into some real trouble with this one flowing on tap.

This is a true artisan beer and a coup for Shneider Weise. If you like wheat beers or Dopple Bocks give this a try. I found using a belgian ale style glass better and more staisfying than the typical Pilsner glass. Fruity aroma, smooth and somewhat creamy head. Fantastic and satisfying flavor. Great before, during and after a meal. I recommend large thick pork chops with apple sauce or leg of Lamb and Jalepeno Jelly. Or if you like Corsendonk - try this as a finishing beer.

Little know fact: Schneirer Weisse also makes a distilled liquor from this brew called Aventinus Elderbrand (Noble Fire) waiting for a shipment from Germany to try this though - next week. Just got confirmation on it. I will add a review for that after we try it.

Clove scent? In beer? How strange...

This is nothing like I thought it would be. I knew with the wheat, it wouldn't be as heavy as I'd usually expect from something claiming to be a Doppelbock, but it's really quite light. A light carmael, Pepsi cola color, with a fizz to match. Highly carbonated, watch yourself opening that bottle.

The taste, on the other hand, rests almost totally on the numberous spices which seem to have been added. Fruity, and yes, as the bottle says, it has a "clovelike finish." Quite cool.

Probably not the sort of thing I'd drink every day, but definately something which should be tried. Completely unique and enjoyable.

A brown-red beer with a big vigorous head that falls quickly to a thin bone colored layer over the beer. Very attractive.

The smell is campfire smoke, rootbeer, dark fruits, dark bready malts, caramel and toffee. What a great combo! Alcohol is not noticeable and at 8% that is something of an accomplishment.

The flavor mimics the nose with the smoke and rootbeer taking a backseat to the dark fig-like fruits, dark malty bread-like notes. The caramel adds a nice sweetness to this beer that is nicely balanced. What a treat. Alcohol is not detected in the taste.

Mouthfeel is a touch biting for me but the heft of the beer is very pleasant.

I could drink one after another of these, although I'd probably fall off my chair after a while.

This beauty was my only bottle selection for the evenings tasting and I was far from dissapointed, other than being given a pint glass to pour this fine creation into.

A: Poured a murky dark brown with crimson accents, a one finger head, excellent lacing and fine retention. Head retianed a full cap for half of the glass.

S: Sweet malts and estery accents(cherrys and prunes and then bananas). A mature aging aroma which sublte wheat/grass undertones. If I'm not mistaken, there could have been a coco element.

T: Yeasty wheat, a fully bready persona. Fruits(pear/apples) came in second that added to mild spice swirling around. I deteted some fresh grapes within that adds to the sea of flavors(honey/vanilla) for this complex masterpiece.

M: Thick, chewy, creamy and full of well balanced carbonation.

D: A true delight after some disappointing tasting prior. The ABV comes in during the second and third tastes, which I fould very impessive and enjoyable.

16.9 oz bottle ~ poured into a weizen glass

Appearance- pours a deep copper color, with a bubbly two finger head. Great retention, a little lace. Somewhat active carbonation.

Smell- Bready yeast. Caramel, some light banana and clove.

Taste- Has a nice malty feel without an over powering yeast presence. Doughy caramel lead the way and never really give up. There is banana, light clove, definit vanilla, and some light peppering as well. Delicious beer.

Mouthfeel- Medium body and carbonation, incredibly smooth. ABVs are hid nice, but you can still tell its a big one.

Overall- This really is the best weizenbock out there! Back to back with weihenstephan, that was good, this was excellent. The actual wheat does stand out more in this one, despite it being both stronger and darker.
