Notes section describes this as retired, but that's obviously not the case.

I'm obviously not getting this beer. The pinot noir flavor dominates to the point that I'd rather have a glass of the real thing.

750mL bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours a cloudy mahogany brown color. Minimal white froth.

(S)- Clear notes of dry oak barrel with a wheated graininess to it. Fairly wine-like in a dark jammy fruit sense. Small bits of raisin in the background.

(T)- Very red wine-like with dry oak meeting a wheated spiced body. Almost like a subtle flanders meets a bock without any extreme acidity to it.

(M)- A good carbonation level meets a really nice red wine barrel characteristic. A nice take on a combo of a weizenbock and an eisbock. Not sour or acidic, but just with those great dark fruit notes from the red wine barrel.

(O)- A very nice array of flavors and blending involved to make this beer. Subtle wine notes really make this shine.

Pours into my Schneider &Brooklyner Hopfen Weisse glass a deep somewhat murky chesnut brown with deep reddish hue,a billowing light tan colored head atop that leaves no laceing as it settles slowly.Wow the Pinot Noir barrel really stands out but doesn't overwhelm the nose,musty phenols and a hint of sherry vinegar rounds the aroma profile out.Very low carbonation with a fuller feel,very mellow.Pinot noir grapes are really big on the palate along with oak,the weizenbock flavors come into form the more I drink,some spiced phenols and faint chocolate come alive as it warms.Very interesting and as others have said it's good to see an old school traditional German brewer try things like this.It's a sipper but it's complex and different.

Had this outdoors, split the bottle three ways.
A dark ruby. The sun really made an awesome color through the chimay glass. A beasutiful, thin yet persistent blanket. Really perfection as far as lace goes.

Aroma was lightly phenolic, with a light vinous touch in the background, and a rich malty presence upfront.

Flavor: Incredible. A raisiny, spicy, fruity brew, all understated. Like a well balanced spice bread. An incredible pleasant oak sweetness and body tie together the rather light carbonation.

Mouthfeel: Balanced superbly, oak silk, low carb, solid body. Just can't really gush enough.

I loved this one, even at $20 for the 750ml.
