Poured into a becher pint. Lovely beige head, much retention. Ruby brown color.

Fruity nose like berry tea, with some hops. These carry over into the flavor, with the peach more prominent. Bitter nut notes mingle with the hops. Dark wheat barely hinted on the tail. Mouth is medium carbed, smooth.

Not very indicative of a dunkelweizen, but works as a holiday beer, comparable to pale a winter warmer. A pleasant seasonal offering.

Light brown color and clear. Smallish head but it lasts as a thin layer of bubbles. A few minor bubbles for lace.

Very sweet and perfumy smell. It reminds me of a sweet, berry-like tea. Too much so. There's no wheat aroma and the darker malts are nearly missing.

The flavor is also too sweet as if with blackberry juice. Again, the wheat seems to be missing and the dark malts are overwhelmed by the sugars. This makes the beer sweeter than it should be, but also richer.

Maybe it is because I had it for breakfast on Christmas day but I liked it. Really liked the peach flavor, cased it to become a better than common holiday brew.

Pours a dark amber with a white head. Smell and taste is peaches and spice. Mouthfeel is light bodied and easy to drink. Overall a different holiday beer, but not bad though.

If you like orange flavor, this is your beer. It’s an occasional beer best enjoyed during holiday gatherings.

I kinda had a little bit of a qualm with the fact that this wasn't as soft and smooth as say...Guinness...it should have been a lot more so due to its amazing flavor, packed with fruit and the great smell as well.
