Thick beige head that doesn't overstay it's welcome. Dark caramel colour that makes you want to dive in immediately. Wonderful bold caramel taste. The 5.4% ABV is surprising given its strength. The carbonation reduced drastically on the second half of the bottle. I guess I need to get a bigger glass! I'm looking forward to tasting this beer again.

Poured from the bottle into Furstenberg glassware that I got from the brewery 34 years ago! This is my first taste of this beer since the late 80's, as it has not been available in the US since then (I got this beer from Quebec). Frothy browny head, very thick as I remember it being. The body of the beer is also dark, but a bit on the amber brown side. The first sip brought back memories of my time in the Black Forest of Germany, where the brewery is located - malty sweetness, slight banana flavor, wheat bread on the backside. A deeelicious brew that I wish I could get more ofter!

FWHD is pretty much on par for this type of beer. It's medium brown in colour, with a light head that lasts a while but leaves zero lacing. Rather than bananas, I smell cherry in this one - in addition to the expected wheat aromas. Its wheat character is quite strong in the taste, highlighted by the fruity tastes (a little sour cherry and plum). Its fine carbonation and dry finish make it feel very good going down. Good stuff!

A - Pours a dark Amber color with a nice tight white head that retains well.

S - Aromas of sweet sugars and grainy malt.

T - Burnt caramel flavour that has a sweetish banana touch. A little one dimensional.

M - Light crisp mouthfell and low carbonation.

O - Wouldn't to go after this again.

500ml Bottle

Appearance - The beer pours a hazy brown colour with a very large frothy and fluffy beige coloured head. I can't make out how much carbonation there is and there is some average lacing. The head lasted for several minutes before it began to dissipate.

Smell - malts, cloves, bananas, breads/grains

Taste & Mouth - The beer has quite a bit of carbonation and feels light and creamy on the tongue. The taste is made up of malts, breads/grains, very light chocolate,and bananas. There is also a slightly metallic taste. The beer finishes with a malty banana aftertaste.

Drink - I enjoyed my first few sips of the beer but started to notice and slightly off taste as I progressed through the glass. It just seems to be lacking the balance of some of the other beers in this category. I wouldn't seek this one out again.
