Released in Sweden at Systembolaget September 16, 2016.

The beer brewed in 2012 has a paper lining where you get information what happened 2012 like "Peace Nobel Price goes to EU" and "Barack Obama is re-elected president of the USA" etc.
That's nice! You get a beer and a history lesson at the same time :)

The beer pours clear, brown with a three finger high head that doesn't leave any lacing on the glass.

Nose: Wow! This is beautiful! Raisin, plum, ripe banana, vanilla, cherry, brown sugar, dark syrup, fudge, caramel malt, candied sugar, butter and root beer.
A LOT of wonderful notes going on here!
Taste: Outstanding! Smooth, complex taste of plum, raisin, dried fruit, banana bread, syrup, malt, bread, and butterscotch.
Mouth: Full body and light carbonation. Almost no alcohol taste - It's very well hidden. Smooth and full, complex texture. It's like you fell the years gone by....

Conclusion: If you have the chance - Go get this beer! It's great!

From bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy brown with a rich, almost pure white head. Dissipates quickly to a vague lacing. The sweetness & malt dominate the aroma & the taste. Very smooth with a rich mouth-feel. Afterglow is slightly sweet, slightly caramel, w/some banana. It's very apparent why this stuff has been around so long. It must have made a few cold night very bearable.

Deep amber brown with good foam and lacing. Smells sweet, like some banana, mango and citrus with a little floral note. Taste is awesome, gentile mix of fruit with a bread like feel and nice floral notes mixed in. The finish is a little dry with notes of banana and a mild malt. Overall a very very good beer, this is my first try and I have to say I will be back for more.

Bought this bottle to change it up a bit, and I'm glad I did.
Poured into a stemmed glass, the body is a ruby red/brown, slight haze from yeast i imagine. great cream head that slowly fades to a film, the ring remains strong throughout. Not much lacing to speak of.
aroma is loads of clove, and it's quite nice. sweet but not cloying. it's got some herbal qualities, and what i associate as classic European hops. slight caramel.
This really is a beautifully made beer. the taste matches the aroma, leans sweet but not too much. nicely carbonated, and has a medium +, silky mouthfeel.
Really glad i bought this to explore a new style, something i rarely do,

Very dark brown pour, but not overly thick. Cola head, 1/3". A bunch of alcohol in the nose. A lot of dark fruit, overripe pruno notes.

Taste is more alcohol heat, brown malt, prunes, figs, cabernet, raisins, dates. Why the hell do people like this? I guess there is some crossover for quads and bocks.

There's some banana and dark wheat feels. A little bit of smoke. Just not my jam.

L....brownish...half finger head...nice sticky lace...heavy carbonation.
T....Quite Marvelous...1st taste out of the stein was molasses like grammas cookies..sweet...hint of anise...roasted malts...coffee...bananas...bready...blended nicely with the alcohol.
F....smooth...slick...creamy...nicely carbonated...maybe just a hint of too much candy store.
O....very well crafty beer..too many and you might get spoiled from your regular brewsky. I prefer the tap 7 but this beer is a head to toe experience.

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 +7.9%
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.

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.
