A- Pours a deep, almost purple tinged brown. Not an overwhelming head, though since it is from bottle and I made sure to pour it to produce a less than thick head...

S- Smells fruity, with some of those clove and spice smells of a good hefeweizen.

T- Fruity and spicy, like if you crossed a really good hefeweizen with a proper ale. Complex and very tasty.

M- A good full mouth feel, but not to syrupy or anything.

O- I will no doubt always have this beer in my fridge. Then again, I'm slightly biased in that I always liked their hefeweizens above all others I have tried. Even so, definitely try to get this one, you will not regret it!

Served from bottle into a frosted Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock glass (proper). Poured a deep dark red-orange (almost brown) with a three finger light tan colored head that subsided to one finger very slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, banana, wood, spices, subtle sweet alcohol, dark fruit, and wheat. The flavor was of sweet malt, banana, fruit, spices, sweet alcohol, dark fruit, and wheat. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. The balance on this one was truly awe-inspiring as all the components in this one blended really well together and none of them overtook the others. You would never guess this one to be 12% as it wears it so well. Definitely a must try for anyone who calls themselves a beer fan.
