look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Dark brown color with a nice head, but nearly no lacing left on the glass as you drink.
Aroma of cloves and light malt..tons of spice.
This one needs to tone down the cloves a bit. I'm not a lover of the Weissbeer style, so maybe that's why I couldn't get past the fruity, spicy flavor of this beer.
I have to give this beer some credit. It was smooth and had a decent mouthfeel to it, with some nice malt flavor.
Doesn't quite live up to it's reputation as far as I'm concerned.

Undecipherable date code, poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint.

Surprisingly clear, brilliantly burnt brown colored, with a light tan colored huge, dense head that dissipated with soda like fizzing into a rather modest one and, surprisingly, didn't leave any lacing. At first I thought that this was going to be a great looking beer, but as it turned out, not quite.

Aroma is, simply put, magnificent: very sweet with dark caramely sweetness and fruity banana sweetness. It does remind of a doppelbock and a hefeweizen at the same time and has all the toasty-caramel notes with the banana-clove-tart hints. Brilliant.

Although not as strong as aroma, the taste is equally complex: dominated by banana-caramel flavor, with slightly tannic and slightly bitter finish. Very good until the finish that is excruciatingly sweet and cloying, making it hard to take another sip. Some alcohol helps, but still, the overly sweet aftertaste kills almost all the pleasure derived from drinking this one.

Thin body, but still somehow manages to stay around on the palate as if I drank LME. I don't get it!

If you chugged it you won't know but as it is, very tough to drink.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: a nice dark ruddy hue with a huge head that settles into a thin foam.

Smell: Overall, a resonating sourness reminiscent of yogurt or malted milk. Higher notes of caramel, sweetbreads, toffee, and carob.

Taste: Definitely strong yeasts. Low carbonation and excessively smooth, like most weissbiers. A biscuity, bready taste; like drinking a piece of good pumpernickel bread. Alcohols come out near the middle. Warming effect near the end.

Overall: Easy to go down, but a little bit yeasty for my taste.

Huge head, with a cloudy red amber look to it.
Malty, fruity in the nose.
You can definitely feel the carbination that leaves your tongue tingly.
The taste of chocalate,spices, coffee ,and what seems to be bananas, that for me left a unpleasant after taste. You can taste
the sweetness of the fruits, and sense the high alcohol content.
Still a good experience, but not sure how many more I'll have of this beer.

This beer was interesting, but not necessarily in a good way. It poured a nice orange color and had a vigorous foamy head. The aroma was very fruity with no hops present. The beer had a sweet maltiness with a pronounced apple flavor. The hops were very subdued and provided barely enough bitterness to balance out the malt. The body and mouthfeel was relatively light considering the alcohol content. The carbonation was very high - almost like that of a witbier. A decent beer, but not outstanding in my opinion.

The pour was on the dark side and producing a nice golden head. I first picked up hints of cloves, cardamom, orange and some cinnamon

I wasnt sure what to expect based on the aroma. The taste was malty and bit heavy. It was a bit on the thin side and did not leave any distinctive aftertaste.

This may just not be the type of beer that really suits me.

Nothing to complain about or negative comments, just something that was a good drink but also something I would not consider having more than 1 glass.

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.

I don't get the hype. 500ml bought at my local getränkemarkt with a bottled on date of 1 March 16 and a Best Buy of 1 March 17. Poured into a weissbier glass with no head in light cola color; the aroma is actually pretty great -- sweet raisin liqueur with a warm yeasty breasy base; taste is on the weak side with a but of peppery/Christmassy spice along with some raisin, brandy, and water -- a disappointment after the smell; med body with med cloy and pretty aggressive carb - fine; overall an ok example of the style but not a great beer imo

From decervecitas. In Bavaria glass. Playing 8bit Adventures. Like an alcoholic version of a hefeweizen. Not so bad, but a big deception after tasting their superb tap 5 and seeing this one scores.

This beer pours a brown color with a slight ruby red tint to it. It has a thick light tan head that fades very slowly, leaving a decent lacing.

This beer has a bubblegum like aroma. It also smells slightly spicy. Some caramel malt aroma is also present. It has a very subtle yeasty aroma also.

From the aroma, I was worried about what this beer would taste like. However, I was wrong. It tastes good. It is spicy, with some yeasty flavor.It has a caramel malty sweet flavor also.

This beer goes down smooth, leaving a malty sweet aftertaste. It is decently carbonated for the style.

I doubt this beer would kae the best session beer. It is a little high in alcohol. Also, although the flavor is decent, it might be a bit much after a few.

Overall: I didnt particularly like this one. I dont know what is was, but I just didnt like it. Sorry.

Pours a cola brown with a thick, rich foamy head. Great aroma of cloves, spices, and a slight hint of bananas. Nice clove taste and bubblegum...Someone was dead-on when they said they tasted Marmite in it. Spicey finish. Drinkablity is average. I would rather drink a ton of lighter-bodied hefe's than something like this.

Poured, sacriligiously, into a highball class.

A- Brown with a frothy white cap.

A- Chsitmas spice, banana peel, a touch of sour. Some bready malt becomes apparent as the beer warms.

T- A sour tinge is immediately apparant, then the taste of carmel-covered banana, lots of breadiness, and a delicate chocolate note. Really, the spice and the sour tinge dominate.
It's unimaginable that this beer is 8% alc. It's wet and leaves no burn. Easy drinking, but in that light I'd really rather a fresh Hefeweizen.

M- The wheat leaves a frothy light body that glides over the palate before floating away. It's easy drinking... except for the taste.

0- Wheat beers have the shortest of shelflives after hor-forward beers, like IPA's. So I'm hoping, although this one exceeds 8%ABV, that this example sits post its prime. It just fails to impress me. The flavor is there, but nothing exceptional pops out.

A: hazy translucent amber in the light; dense, full, lasting off-white head, eventually fades to a centimeter of cover; little to no lacing
S: yeast/wheat, apple, savory
T: smokey/sour/savory/apple
M: medium-bodied, coating, dry
O: Dissapointing off flavor and scent. Many people get far more out of this beer, but this is in a class of bad-savory-tasting beers in a class I otherwise prefer. It's bizarre--I'd very much like to hear from someone who's had this or other similar beers and can clarify whether I keep somehow getting bad bottles or whether I'm especially sensitive to this flavor.
