Weiss bier with testicles. I am not typically a weiss bier fan. This pours murky brown with
almost no head that dissipates rapidly. Typical weiss bier aroma but flavor is excellent and
drinkable. Surprising that 8.2 ABV is not noticeable. I could shotgun these on a hot day.
The Germans know what they are doing.

Toffee nut brown in color. Light in carbonation. Smooth with hints of caramel, dates, and malts.

Pours a medium brown with a lively but quickly diminishing tan head. Aroma is a very subtle light banana, dried fruit and brown sugar with a hint of clove. Flavour is complex with brown sugar, banana and slight clove spiciness. The alcohol warms but is not very detectable in the aroma or flavour. Some rustic woodiness in a semi dry finish. Excellent

4.67/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Look: Pours a mahogany brown hue with a one finger, tan head that fizzles away almost immediately leaving no lacing.

Aroma: Surprisingly tame. I'm getting star anise, toffee, fudge, mild light roast coffee and plums. Notes of vanilla, bananas and cloves.

Taste: Sweet notes of candied apples, chocolate covered raisins and red figs upfront. A gentle caramel and crème brûlée flavor unfolds midpalate, followed by spicy yet restrained notes of rye bread, banana pudding, saltwater taffy and cloves. The entire tasting experience is blanketed by a dry, floral, woody, and slightly alcoholic taste akin to rosewater.

Feel: Light and crisp. Lager like but with noticeably more alcohol. Leans towards the sweet side of the beer spectrum, while still maintaining some balance.

Overall: I don't know what to say about this one besides that it's extremely delicious and well crafted. If you consider yourself a craft beer geek, this is one to add to your bucket list if you haven't had it already.

4.12/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Look: Pours as hazy brown with a bubbly light tan head that dissipates. Turns into a much darker mahogany as it sits.

Smell: Misleadingly light. Hints of banana bread, the kind with walnuts on it.

Taste: Full flavored, again with the banana bread but with the addition of a slightly bitter/sour note. Malty finish.

Feel: Full bodied, quite creamy with a little bite throughout.

Overall: I paid somewhere in the neighborhood of $4 for a bottle, and I'd be hard pressed to find something as good for the same money. This beer makes me proud to be at least part German!

This beer pours a very cloudy brown with a medium sized head. The aroma starts with spicy characteristics of clove and nutmeg, as well as something like wet wood. There is also some dark fruit, prunes, dates, died blueberries, cranberries, and something nutty as well, like spiced pecans. The flavor begins with nutmeg and pecans, then some overripe bana and prune, finishing soft and woody. The mouthfeel is full and very creamy. Overall this is a very nice beer, complex and solid. A nice German match to Belgian styles.

Obviously, the novice will be obvious as I know most love this beer. However, it poured a tea colored brown with no head. Smell is malty and bready sweet. The taste is of molasses bread with spiced undertones. It is heavily carbonated and reminded me of a soda. I enjoyed drinking it because it was so far removed from the other beers I've drank, but I wouldn't necessarily return to it.

1 pint 0.9oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a muddy chocolate brown with a off-white half finger head. Nose is wheat, burnt sugar, and molasses. Taste follows the palate, with the same dark sugar notes, alongside hints of clove and cardamon (though much less so that in other German wheat beers). Mouthfeel is medium/medium-thick. Overall, an exceptional beer, and a style that is not often found anymore in the states. Excellent.

Poured 500ml into Weizen glass. Almost coffee like brown with similar clarity and a two finger off-white head with decent retention and great lacing. Sweet malty aroma, bready with hints of banana, cloves, chocolate, dark fruits, brown sugar, and caramel. The taste is rich and bold with hefty amounts of malt, sweet brown bread. banana, plums, caramel, cloves, tobacco, chocolate, anise, apple skin, and some nice subtle citrus hop notes. The mouthfeel is thick and chewy with prickly carbonation and a creamy finish. Absolute joy to drink on any given day of the year.

Hands down, one of the best I have had! Mellow and subtle hints of a dunkle and a hefe with the rich body of a doppelbock. Amazing that this is brewed as an ale! Little head when poured into a glass, but the color makes up for it. A nice milk chocolate color with a mild aroma. I do not know what else to say but try one!

L - 4.25 small khaki head with light brown almost red tint to the body
S - 5 as I poured this beer the aroma was intense. Plum, raisin, blueberry, banana
T - 4.75 extremely similar to the smell. The fruit flavor is intense. Delicious beer. Idk how they can get all those flavor into a beer. Like no other Dopplebock I've ever had
F - 4.5 super smooth, slight carbonation, silky, creamy
O - 4.75 easily the best Dopplebock over ever had. Jammed packed full of flavor. Great beer, I could drink servers of these!
