Finally getting around to reviewing this thing. Ive had it a few times and loved every single time.

Poured into an Aventinus glass. Caramel body with white head. The head is reflective of the ABV compared to the hefeweizen head. I get load of clove out of the nose, a slightly spicy clove. The taste is loaded with banana and clove. Theres an insane balance between the clove and banana. Full feeling in the mouth, with the yeast flavors just taking over in the best way possible. Finishes chewy and amazing.

A - Pours a hazy garnet, with a frothy off-white head.

S - Loads of yeast, creamy banana, clove, sugary red grapes, bubblegum, gingersnaps, sour wheat, anise, dense bread.

T - Vinous acidity hit the edges of the tongue, gingerbread, vanilla, tangy yeast, bubblegum, banana, clove, brown sugar, caramel, cocoa.

M - Medium to full body, low carbonation,

There is alot going on in this beer. Very complex layer of flavors that actually go together very well. This is a hidden gem of a beer. If you've passed this up, pick it up next time.

Bottle to CBS snifter.

A: Murky-looking brown with golden transparent hues...a large soapy eggshell colored head retreats at a medium speed and leaves a bit of creamy lacing.

S: Fruity notes dominate, lots of wheaty tang and dark fruits mix with caramel, banana and spicy clove, very bready and malty with lots of wheat notes...ghost-like alcohol complements the fruity tones.

T: Yeast-like fruity esters, a touch of alcohol mixes with the spices and clove to create a rum-like sensation...very malty and bready..hint of caramel? Wheat comes though well.

MF: Tangy and a bit spicy, medium mouthfeel with a good sticky feel for a beer with this body...decent carbonation after a hard pour.

O: Surprised that I liked this one so much, its very drinkable and enjoyable with pleasant fruity overtones and miles of bready malts.

Ho hum, another weak-coffee tinted beer with an unimpressive head. I'm not smelling anything outside of wheat and malt. What's so great about this...?
[sip]

Anise, coffee, vanilla, chocolate, burdock root, dandelion, banana?! Bitter! Sweet! Bitter! Sweet! Herbal! Acrid! Sweet! This is supposed to have 8.2% alcohol? Impossible, there's no alcohol bite!

Subtle carbonation, with a refreshing, light and astringent quality. Impressively refreshing.

Absolutely stunning.

A - This is how a beer should look. A clear ruby brown fluid with some carbonation bubbles going to surface. On the surface the bubbles meet a decent off-white head, which slowly retract to a creamy layer.

S - A malt syrup scent mixed with a strong light sour prickly yeast smell with a sweet touch.

T - What the hell is this! I have never ever tasted something like this before. This is different. All kind of flavors are coming directly after each-other, similar like a jawbreaker. In the beginning the beer is the same as the smell gave away and than after swallowing comes a sour caramel twist.

M - A highly carbonated beer and a bitter sour finish, not something I fancy.

O - Something different,but not my taste.

Poured into SA sensory pint glass.

A: pours a deep chestnut, nice clarity, white dense head, no lacing, decent head retention

S: nose features bright notes of bubble gum and banana, notes of wheat, faint hints of biscuit and orange, very aromatic

T: taste pretty well matches the nose with heavy banana bread flavor, some notes of molasses and a citric tartness on the finish, great balance

MF: body is somewhat heavy and matches the bright fruit flavors

O: this is the best example of the style that I've had, it features all of the expected flavor of a weizen bock and has incredible balance

Pale brown color -- paler than I expected. Head is very aggressive on pour, and settles down into a single finger as I'm sampling the aroma. Very nice nose. Sharp and yeasty aromas. There is a strong base of roasted malt, but a sourdough yeast on top of it. Sweet and sour contrast is very striking. Sitting with it a bit longer gives me some ripe banannas, and some spice rack elements. I could just sit here and smell this all day!

First sip enters relatively sweet. Bananna flavors to match the aromas at entry. Sweetness holds up through the swallow, but still exits pretty dry. Medium carbonation. Thinner mouthfeel than I expected... this is medium bodied. Not much of a tipoff to the high alcohol. Sour yeast from the nose isn't as prominent in the flavor. Instead, it is balanced in among the maltiness.

Overall: A! will be back...

A: Pours dark brown with amber highlights in color and a finger tall light beige head. The head reduces to a thick layer of bubbles across the entire surface of the beer, thicker at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant lacing is observed.

S: What a enticing smell, hints of yeast with some sweetness and lots of dark fruit (cherries). There is also a fair amount of dark malts.

T: A very pleasant and rich flavor. Sweet malts with a hint of dark fruit (cherries, fig, and plum) and yeast.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin...

O: Really a very enjoyable beer that is quite sessionable even at the ABV (which is very well hidden). I have had this beer many times over the years and always enjoyed it, tonight's bottle for review is no different.

Poured a very dark brown/purple with a white frothy head which quickly died down.

Smelled sweet yeast,treacle, dark malts,bananas and bubble gum.

Taste was sweet malts, honey, bubble gum, treacle a tiny bit of hops.

Mouth feel was a good smooth with a low level of carbonation very refreshing.

A fantastic beer, hides its abv ridiculously well.Def one of my favourites.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter.

A- dark brown with a frothy head that disapates to a thin off white head.

S- yeast, fruitiness, clove, bubblegum, Belgiany goodness.

T- sour grapes, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, spicy yeast, a nice malt backbone, banana, and peppers.

M- prickly mouthfeel with a slight bitter and dry finish.

O- I enjoyed this beer. This is my first German craft beer and this makes me want to try all the other styles of beer from Germany. Also should I feel bad if this beer reminds me of RR's Damnation 23?

Half liter bottle poured into a wheat glass.
Two finger off white/super light brown head. Body ranges from a darker red/brown towards the top of the glass to a lighter orange/golden color at the bottom. Lots of carb working its way through the glass.
Spice, a fruit aroma reminiscent of Belgian brews, banana, caramel, chocolate.
Fruit and spice hit big. Slightest hop bitterness. Malty sweetness. Detectable alcohol but it is very minimal. As I drink all these different fruits pop in my head. You could prob write quite the list if you think about every sip. The flavor complexity on this thing is mindblowing.
Med-full body. Slight tingle from the carb.
Easily my favorite German beer. I never had it fresh while overseas but even the old bottles sitting around the shelves here top everything I’ve had so far.
