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.

Bottle shared by Chris (spycow). A barrel-aged German offering eh? Served in a Russian River tulip.

A - Off-white foam settles to a collar, leaving behind a few wisps on top but minimal lacing. Dark cherrywood brown body with a hint of transparency to it when looked at from the right angle.

S - Taste is very estery in the expected weizenbock manner - a mix of cocoa, dark bread, and bananas, but with light oak and hints of Pinot Noir. There's a light touch at work here, and the fruity vinous flavors play well with the dark fruits in the base beer. Still, it's a bit understated.

T - The taste is stronger, with more of the Pinot Noir influence presence. The base beer imparts yeast notes of banana and clove, and the wheat base also makes itself known. Nice mix of fruity wine, fruity esters, and yeast spice. Not much alcohol presence here.

M - Medium bodied, with pleasant carbonation. Dry in texture with a crisp finish. Again, not much alcohol presence considering the listed 9.5%.

D - I'm excited to see German breweries stepping outside their comfort zone a little. This wasn't mind-blowing, but it demonstrated solid craftsmanship and the willingness to experiment. I wish it smelled a bit more like it tasted, as the aroma was a bit too conservative to justify the marked price increase.
