Pours copper-red into a pilsner glass. Nice, thick white head. Plenty of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.
Aroma is bready and malty. This beer smells quite good. Fresh, floral aroma is evident, and were I a horticulturist, I could be more elaborative.
Nice, malty taste that is accompanied by some raisin and plum tones. Some sweet, over-ripe bananas as well.
This has a great mouthfeel. Crisp and fresh, and slightly dry.
Quite drinkable for a doppelbock. Alcohol is not discernable. Given how tasty it is, I could easily enjoy several of these in one sitting.
