Another dandy from Capital...cloudy orange color....nose is typical weizen...I get heavy cloves and banana's....low carbonation....a bit syrupy...slick...sweet flavor...bananna's...also I get some cinaman...some might find this a little oversweet, but I like it...not in aventius's class but worth seeking out...

Update-2003 version...more of a sweet/sour flavor...very yeasty....interesting but considerably different in flavor than Aventinus..one six-packk is enough of this for one year...

This beer is about as close to orange as you can get. A minimal head recedes to nothing in seconds. Really nice blend of banana, clove and sweet malt on the nose. First off, I notice the huge sweetness, teetering on cloying, and nice malt presence on the tongue. Then I start to pick up some weizen characteristics, cloves and pepper spicing, and some slight vanilla and banana tones. Mouthfeel is on the low side of the carbonation spectrum and a bit syrupy. Not out of the norm for this style however. Overall, this is a very tasty and enjoyable brew. Wouldn't want to can a sixer of this however. Not quite up to the high bar that Aventinus sets, but the next closest one that I've had.

Throws a dusty brown-peach glass with a thinnish tan head, with fair retention.
Bombards the nose with banana bread notes. Clove spiciness lurks as well.
Flavor starts with some sour apple notes. Switches to a banana sweetness. Spices rush in next. Vanilla, clove and maybe ginger. Malts then assert themselves with sweet,lush carmel hues. Finishes yeasty sour and somewhat alcoholic.
Fairly thick bodied. A summertime sipper. And a very unique and tasty one at that.

Hazy, orangey color, spidery head settles into patches of light foam. Sweet syrup aroma. Full bodied impression. Pepppery taste at first with denser fruit malts that combine with the spice. Continues in body until swallow, almost like a sweet gravy. More strident lemon notes than Aventinus. Fits Dopplebock category in its coating properties, slight alcohol warmth, and strong malt properties. Not complex, what you taste initially is what persists. A little too cloying for me to give a high drinkability score. Interesting brew.
