Pours a dark brown with slight orange tinges.
The head is insane, however, it does not stay around for too long.
Smells of dark malts, caramel and alcohol, there are some winey hints to the nose as well.
The taste is amazing, sweet, a little malty and smooth, wow, this is just excellent. There are also many spices, it seems like nutmeg, maybe cinnamon.
This is just one great beer, it's not something I could drink every night, but on cold nights and well whenever really, this very much hits the spot
Overall, this is just a tasty beer, I will definitely return to this from time to time.

Great brew. Not as boozy as the eisbock. This could easily be a daily drinker.

Pours a cloudy dark brown, with a huge, light-tan, puffy and cloud like head. Head slowly dimishes to a pretty strong lacing. Aroma is strong on the banana, with some clove sneaking in, too. Flavor is also strong on the banana, with some slight hints of chocolate, and ending with some clove and spiceyness. In the mouth, it has some tingly carbonation, and a tiny hint of alcohol as it gets warmer.

Dark in color like a dopplebock with a nice billowing head.
Smells of dark cherries and some delicious malts, like an abbey style ale.
Tastes great! Has some chocolate hints with dark fruits like plum. YUM

I would buy this everyday if I could afford it.

I was suprised to see how dark the color of this beer is. The smell is also much different than I expected, much more carmel and fruity than I guessed. But the best thing about this beer is the taste. The fruits come through strong, but dissapear a little too quickly. It reminds me a lot of Hoegaarden Forbidden Fruit in that they are infusing many tastes together. It almost creates a wine-like idea. Very Pleased.

Go Giants!! Pours a cloudy but beautiful deep amber. Huge, three to four fingers of marshmallowy head that settles into a persistent finger of creamy goodness. Wonderful lacing. So far this is elite...Huge aromas of fig, licorice, sweet maltiness, maybe even some tart cherry in the background. This is already clearly a world class beer. Flavor doesn't quite match up to all this, however. Upfront, the flavor is awesome. Lots of fig, malt and licorice immediately assaults you. However, the middle and finish thin out a tad too much for me. Alcoholo of 8.2% ABV completely masked in this brew. I could see people sessioning this and getting greatly ill. Trying to like it more, but the finish is too thin. It's wonderful for about 80% of the drink, then not so perfect. This is, however, an excellent and elite beer, and powerfully drinkable.

What I like most: The color, nose and ABV.

What I like least: The finish is too thin.

Verdict: An elite beer worth tracking down, having only a minor fault here and there.

I am not a fan of Weizen neither of Bocks, so imagine when you mix the both of these worlds. But, I like it anyway.

Very dark golden beer with a foamy and present beige head.

Smell is alcoholic and wheats are present, with big notes of bananas and apples.

Taste is quite sweet, first the hops come in, with their fruity kick such as banana and apples followed by an earthy malty presence which ends with a cereal but shy flavors.

This I had had a few times past but didn't immediately rate it and figured its better to be honest, so I re-bought it and re-drank it and rated it as best I could. Here we go.
Poured into my snifter a dark brown, opaque and had a HUGE foamy tan head that I had to let die down for several minutes. The retention was some of the best I've ever seen. Reminiscent of a tripel. Good lacing.
Sour fruits, wheat, chocolate and sweet malts, alcohol, bubblegum, candy sugars, over-ripe bananas. SO much going on here, its hard for a novice like me to get it all straight! Needless to say its extremely complex.
The taste was sour cherries, wheat, alcohol, spices and malts. Once agian, so much its hard to tell.
Though the mouthfeel was fizzy and bitter at first, later fading into a smooth sweetness, it was well balanced and very enjoyable. Quite drinkable, but the higher ABV might not allow you to enjoy the complexity after a few glasses. Try it.

A- Pours raisin brown color with a tall beige head which recedes into a little white puddle of foam in the center of the glass.

S- Malty grains scents, spices, and yeast notes.

T- Leads with rich and sweet caramel malts, midpalate has sweet and tangy yeast notes, and spice. Finishes with subtle banana and sweet malts pull back through.

M- Medium body with a medium to high level of carbonation. Fitting for the style and similar to what I've noticed in other Euro wheat beers.

D- Definitely a beer that everyone should try. A classic and worthy of the respect it has gained in the beer world. I however and this personal taste would be done after one 500ml bottle due it being a bit on the spicy side for a more than one a night beer.

The pour into my Aventinus glass (I love it when I get the chance for this!) raises a head that just won't stay in, forcing me to wait for it to subside. It falls slowly to a thick tan layer that won't depart. The body is a translucent brown/copper. The nose is strong and clovey, with lots of banana bread, along with a lot of sweet berry odor, and alcohol. Taste is sweet, alcoholic, and banana bready. Finishes on a bready note. There is a nice cinnamon, pepper note as well. The mouth is full, with lower carbonation than most wheats. Very nice. Very drinkable

Served from a 500ml bottle, at room temperature.

A - Dark red, to the point of being black. Pours with a significant head. The carbonation is medium, high for a non-lager.

S - The malts are clear on the aroma, but not overpowering. Mild spice, possible cinnamon.

T - Strong complex spiciness, could be clove, with cinnamon; definitely more to the spices but it's too complex for my taste buds. There are dark fruits in the background, figs standing out, and maybe raisins and cherries?

M - The carbonation is noticeable, which is something that I wasn't expecting in this. It tastes like it should sit heavy but it doesn't.

D - Decidedly complex beer, that offers up more spice than most. It is definitely unique in the flavours, in a positive way. This is not a beer that you can knock back one after another, it has to be savoured, and the entangled mosaic of flavours truly appreciated.
