500ml bottle served in a pint glass. Label is stamped 17.285 290817.

Pours murky brown. Small white head. Not much carbonation. Smell is rich caramel and grain, raisins, toffee.

Taste is right along with the aroma.

Mouthfeel is light on the tongue, but builds up thickness as you drink it. Unfortunately, I think what appears as murky brownness is some kind of a chalky suspension, which is noticeable on the tongue as a fine grittiness, which I don't particularly like and I doubt is intentional. I wonder if it's a product of age or what (although the label says you can cellar it) -- it was sitting still in my fridge for 48+ hours before I drank it, so if it was sediment, it should have settled out. Overall -- I'm going to discount look and feel somewhat, because I have to believe my experience is an outlier. If these were more pleasant, this would be a quite good beer.

It pours a deep carmael color with an off white head that settles down to a small layer on top. The smell is bread and banana with plenty of carbonation to it. The taste is smooth banana with the wheat also in there. The feel is medium not to thick, overall I enjoyed it very much.

I don't usually enjoy wheat beers but this one gave me a pleasant surprise. The darker sweet aromas like caramel is more dominant but it also blends in perfectly with fruity wheat taste.

Bottle, bb 11/19, i.e. fresh. Actually that is something I started to wonder about... this being one of the beers to age (never had one), why such a short bb.

Murky amber, regular foam for a weizen, perhaps fading a bit quicker than usual. As always, pointless details.

Nose is classic hefe what comes to elements (banana, cloves, a bit of juicy fruit). There is alcohol as the beer warms, and some yeast-derived esters in this young version. Appetizing.

Taste matches aroma but the key impression is supreme drinkability. Sweet but not cloying banana mixing with nice maltiness (Munich malts?), a bit of toffee type caramel, makes you want to take another sip. So simple and so perfect. Subtleness and avoidance of tiring sweetness or spiciness is I would guess the reason this is so addictive.

In summary, an example of a weizen to provide as a challenge to those who claim to hate the style. The classic intoxicating aroma changes in taste into what brings to mind a Chimay rouge, Belgium anyway. Need to match this against sth like that in a blind tasting. Simply beautiful.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Look: Hazy dark brown with two fingers of white foam that quickly dissipates.

Smell: Wheat, coriander, orange peel, bananas, and bready malt.

Taste: Heavy on the orange peel and banana. Very mild otherwise, with almost no noticeable hops.

Mouthfeel: About average thickness, but very high and sharp carbonation.

Overall: Doesn't feel as strong as it is, but is nonetheless refreshing and tasty.

This is the Doppelbock that define the greatest expression of this style. The hints of banana, wheat beer yeast gives way to warmth, and dark, dried fruits while maintaining a quaffable nature, which has hurt me on many occasions. Definitely in my top beers of all time and one I return to weekly for the past 15 years.

Pours a translucent brown with two fingers of pillowy off-white foam. Head retention is world class. Aroma is doughy, toasty, nutty, biscuity malts with a hint of yeast and wheat. Flavor profile is doughy, nutty, toasty, biscuity malts with soft yeast and wheat notes. Nice smooth, roundness. Mouth feel is medium-thick with a fuzzy, velvety, smooth texture that really carries a lot of presence. Overall, splendid notes all around combined with a world class look at big texture presence make this drink beautifully.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 500mL bottle.
