Pours a dark amber brown color with a big foamy head. Good head retention that leaves a creamy film as it recedes and lots of lacing.
Complex and diverse array of aromas include dark fruit; prune, plum and raisin. There is also banana, as well as light clove and bubblegum.
This brew is a real treat in the mouthfeel and flavor! Soft and smooth, a product of the wheat. Medium bodied and gently carbonated. Sweet flavors from the banana, caramelized malt and marmalade jam like malt texture. The yeast produces fruity eaters in the form of dark fruit; raisin, plum, prune, and grape. Light clove provides the balance. Some dryness in the finish, as well as light tartness. Towards the end, a nice bready and toasty quality comes through in the aroma and flavor, as well as a hint of chocolate.
Wonderful brew and just about the best example of the style!

Really good beer. Tried both the fresh and vintage 2009. When poured it had a look
/color almost like coke. Slightly clear, purple haze. Upon smelling i caught wiffs of fig, raisin, cinnamon and grape. The vintage smelled of caramelized candy. Taste was exquisite. I tasted immediate carbonation. Sweet notes of fruit and dried raisin. Slightly spicey. Alcohol added to that Spicey flavor. Vintage had a lot less spice, more mellow flavor. Enjoyed the fresh taste better. Vintage smelled better.

S: Smells of light alcohol, toasted malts and caramel notes, with accent of smokey clove, maybe even banana in strong doses. Perhaps similar to coca-cola caramel.
T: Initially hit with lightly sweet caramel, toasted wheat and light smoke. Followed by more smoke, banana peel with prominent raisin (with light fruity bitterness) and candied fruit characters at finish. Some mineral water / clove at times. Alcohol perfectly matched with the taste and is barely noticable.
F: Carbonation right away, light wheat, malt mouth feel, finishes with a sharp carbonation. Not thick, leaves mild tongue feel.

Probably the best of the few Doppelbock's I've had, not too sweet thankfully. A 4.25 doesn't give it justice, 4.5 in it's class, about 10th in my list of German Imports.

Cloudy, deep copper brown body. Two finger fluffy white head dissipates quickly into a thin lace.
Dark fruit and caramel dominate. A toasted wheat aroma mingles with banana peel and spices. with a touch of alcohol.
The taste is of deep toasted wheat, dates, a slight bitterness of weak coffee and baker's chocolate, a rounded and muted clove...all coming together like a slightly over baked Stollen.
Full bodied for the style, creamy but with good carbonation, enough to keep it from being heavy.

Minor points deducted for the chunky yeast.

This is an extremely good wheat beer. I liked it very much. However, it was brewed five years ago, so I wonder if it is passed its prime. I don't know, it was still delicious.

Look: brown coca-cola like hue with a half inch off-white head

Aroma: toasted malts, yeasty dough, sweet

Taste: The flavor is moderately yeasty dough/wheat and caramel with primarily dark fruits, banana, figs, raisins, and the alcohol is not noticeable.

Feel: light to medium body, easy drinking
