A - Pours and shockingly there is no head! This might be an omen that this is an old beer(I just picked this one up today). Carbonation bubbles are present. Root beer like color, very hazy.

S - Banana bread, dark fruits, inviting complexity.

T - Similar to the smell, some peppery notes, but cloves are omnipresent.

M - Nothing attacks you, the spices in this don't offend. Finishes smooth.

O - You can't go wrong, alcohol is masterfully masked. Who doesn't like banana flavor in an autumn beer? I'm not a huge German beer fan, but this lives up to the hype.

Appearance - cloudy mahogany with five-finger, off-white head that is still thick ten minutes in!

Aroma - clove, banana, and yeasty biscuit dominate the aroma.

Taste - sweet biscuity malt balanced by spicy clove make this one well crafted beer.

Mouthfeel - medium body with effervescent carbonation make it seem lighter than its 8% ABV.

Overall - a magnificent beer that deserves its place amongst the finest in the world.

Poured from Bottle into Weiss glass.

A- Amber brown. Two finger head appeared when poured.

S- One word heavenly. Delicous blend of spices and fruit.

T- I have to admit that im a sucker for clove. I taste a strong clove presence in this beer. A fruity taste in the background, bananna apple. The higher alcohol % is well hidden. Nice lingering aftertaste.

M- Creamy. Fairly well carbonated.

D- Definitely drinkable. Might have to limit myself to one or two.

Had on tap at The Back Abbey in Claremont, CA.

A- Pours a murky brown with an off white head. This was poured into a Ayinger Celebrator flute glass.

S- Obviously dark malt, with wheat and the phenols and esters that come with it. Clove and banana were apparent but not excessive.

T- A really nice balance of chocolate, caramel, wheat, and the yeast by-products of phenols and esters. Really tasty.

M/D- Really smooth due to the enhanced malts but still spritzy enough to be similar to a hefe. Just good all around here. One of those beers that after you take a few sips you just want to keep on sipping it. Becomes addictive I guess you can say.

This is a fantastic brew!

It poured a beautiful hazy medium orange with a very impressive head that outlasted the brew.

The scent coming off this beer was a medium sweet banana clove with some alcohol, though less than expected considering ABV.

It tasted like it smelled... malty banana with some clove and other fruits (apricot?). No noticeable hops. Clean and refreshing with minor alcohol taste.

Full of flavor and truly a joy to drink. If it weren't $4-5 a bottle, I'd drink it much more often!

Get some!

A - Pours a cloudy dark brown with a slight white head. Settles nicely and remains opaque throughout.

S - Very full smell similar to other bocks, rich in hops and sweet malty goodness. Picking up distinct notes of toffee, caramel, coffee, and a faint hint of clove

T - Very full malt profile which is complemented very well by the hoppy finish, which leaves a nice spiciness on your palate. Bold flavors throughout with a sweetness I was not expecting from a dopplebock

M - Very smooth, perhaps the finest quality of this beer, very rich and balanced

D - Could drink this all day, preferably at a bier garten in deutschland. The ABV is masked scarily well, boozy aftertaste is pleasant not overwhelming

Pours with a noisy, crackling, active head of small and medium sized pale tan bubbles. The head quickly dissipates, leaving a brief collar. There are tons of carbonation streams charging to the top through a beautiful burnt amber, copper-highlighted liquid. Smells fruity and rich with cloves, bananas, and raisins. Distinctly wheat. The first taste is initially bracing with alcohol, but this immediately disappears and the rich malty sweetness with the cloves and bananas appear. There are lingering alcohol notes which are warming. Medium bodied with vibrant carbonation. Slightly slick, but relatively light on the tongue. Absolutely drinkable, perhaps dangerously so. This was fantastic and worth tracking down.

L: Cola colored beer, pretty opaque, originally poured a massive soapy, cloud-like head, leaves tons of lace. Head retention is nice
S: Nice smell, toasted malt, cola, hints of dark fruits and alcohol. Sweet and aromatic/spicy
T: Hot damn. Complex as hell, up front I get lots of esters and phenol, slightly spicy. Get that banana/clove type thing common in these beers. Once this fades malts shine through stronger. Tons of dark fruit, think fig or dried apricot, even raisins. Caramelized sugars come through as well, molasses, caramel, toffee. Finishes with a touch of dryness, earthy hops. Nothing is out of balance or assertive here, present but not in your face.
F: Certainly a touch heavy, but not more than you'd think. Still really easy to drink, mouthfeel is remarkably smooth. Silky, carbonation is soft. This beer coats your mouth but you don't hate it for it, and it is in no way astringent, its quite freshing.
O: Big fan of this, perfectly brewed.

I've never had a wheat doppelbock before tonight. I was always told that this was a beer to check out and now I understand why. I was never a big fan of wheat beers in general, just a little too sour for my tastes really. But a wheat bock? This beer smells like a wheat beer. But the taste is exactly half sour wheat-ness half malty bock-ness. An excellent balance with lots of flavor. Might be my new favorite beer.

Pours a dark brown color with a good sized foam head that dissipates quickly. Leaves a thin, bubbly head with no lacing. Lots of chunkies at the bottom.

Alcohol comes through strong in the aroma. Fig, grape and cherry come through as well. Lightly roasted malts.

Taste is very similar to the nose. Masterfully executed. Fig, cherry and prune are strong here, with presence of banana in the background. Licorice. Very pleasant dark fruit notes linger heavily on the tongue, pairing very nicely with the moderately high alcohol.

Medium bodied. Doesn't end up with as much bite from the alcohol as the aroma suggested. Very easy drinker for the flavor profile and ABV; quite unique in that sense. I easily downed this, and could go for another.

Truly sensational beer. A must try.

A - Dark brown in color with light brown highlights around the edge when held up to light. Thick light brown head with excellent retention. Decent lacing as well.

S - Fruity aroma of dark fruits with a hint of some spice. Maybe some over ripe apple? Almost a spicey smelling hefe in the nose.

T - Malty goodness with taste of apple and a roasted caramel sweetness. Also can pick up a hint of the graininess from the wheat. Great tasting beer. A sour tartness as well.

M/D - Light to medium bodied and somewhat chewy. Very drinkable but a little heavy on the carbonation.
