I rarely drink, but when I do, this is the beer I have... The taste is really indescribably, but to me , if there is a heaven, this is what is served there, it tastes that good... It has a very dark look to it, wonderful body, great head when you pour it in a glass. To me, it's pretty much the perfect beer. Put this one on your bucket list of beers to try, and taste what perfection really is.

A - deep brown with a big creamy head. You can literally see chunks of yeast.

S - Super spicy. The bottle claims a fruity spiciness of banana, clove, and vanilla and it delivers. A nice ester whiff follows. Not sure if it gets any better than this.

T/M - It's like a mix between a wheat beer and a Belgian dark. The taste follows the nose with the addition of some dark and bready malts. The mouthfeel is a bit crisp, characteristic of the wheat origins.

O - Best wheat beer I've ever had. Best German beer I've ever had. Best lager I've ever had. Really the only downside is the alcohol is too high to make it sessionable (although I know that's a positive for some folks).

Enjoyed this 1pint .9oz bottle out of a craft brew glass.

A: Pours a dark ruby color with a short, white, think head that lasts forever leaving a frothy trail down the side of the glass.

S: Slightly tart aroma with hints of dark fruits and chocolate.

T: Smooth flavors on the palate that is mostly tart but slightly bitter. Dark fruits, chocolate, some caramel and finishes a little dry.

M: Medium-heavy body and medium-high carbonation.

O: Interesting wheat-doppblebock combination. Complex yet nicely balanced.

aroma is a bouquet of plums, gapes, and pilsner and a touch of alcohol

appearance is dark reddish-brown with a thick rocky head that sustains for some time throughout the glass

taste is of grape nuts, plums, grapes and a sweet malt like browned sugar and a touch of light bitterness that comes through toward the end of each sip. has a wonderful clean finish.

mouthfeel is wonderfully full but light with that classic wheat feel and great carbonation. excellent
