look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured a cloudy dark amber brown with a four finger tan head that dissipated to a thin head that stayed throughout. Curiously, there is no lacing. Aroma is faint grapes and raisins with a hint of marmalade. Taste is of malt and dark cherry and a hint of orange peel on the end with a little bitterness. Alcohol taste becomes more pronounced after several sips and the beer warms. This seems a bit like a Belgian with the sweetness. The beer is a little on the dry side and has a light-medium body with moderate carbonation.

2008 vintage, bottle at Brauhaus Schmitz in Philadelphia. Fancy wraps and presentation. Looks dark and heady, with a fluffy head that does not last. Spice,banana, raisin, dessert flavors... and a nice port/sherry aroma. Drinks well for a not-quite ten year old beer, but the flat mouthfeel brings it down. Interesting, but kind of boring after half a glass.

A: pours with a creamy, beige to off white, three finger head and a deep, dark reddish amber to mahogany body, that, despite being dark, is mostly clear
S: immediately the aroma of baking spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.) dominates the nose in a pungent way, followed by the classic phenolic notes of banana and clove underneath it all, not my favorite aroma, but distinctive and to style so well played
T: this one is puzzling upon first take. (quick side note: when I buy dark schneider weisse, I typically buy the eisbock as I like it better and I have much more experience with it). Immediately the warm, sweet spices come through followed by the phenols, along with hints of orange (sorry, they're there), and a slight vienna lager-esque toastiness, along with some notes of syrupy cherry. More dark fruit comes out as the beer sits
M: somewhat dry, but not overly so, sharp carb
O: it's a great beer, I think it's big brother is better, but it is truly phenomenal

(PS: I, for once, don't like the spice presence here)

L: This beer looks great. It pours a lovely hazy hazelnut and maintains a creamy and cream colored head from beginning to end of the beverage. Also has decent lacing.

S: The smell is strong on the malt and breadiness. There is definitely some hay on the nose, but the toasty caramels and toffees dominate, and wonderfully so.

T: The taste is malt forward as a bock should be, with a small amount of pleasant wheat characteristics. I swear there is still a smidgeon of banana present amid lovely malt and dark fruit notes. The crystal malts dominate with a strong sweetness that at no point becomes cloying.

F: Wonderful and refreshing. The beer has a medium carbonation that keeps every taste fresh (quite the feat with the strong flavors at play). The mouthfeel itself is rich and silky, and absolute pleasure to sip on.

O: This is a lovely weizenbock. A go to for paring with cold cut sandwiches or savory pastries. The refreshing nature of it, combined with the intense dark maltiness and fruitiness pairs so well with any kind of actually bready meal.

Pours a mahogany brown with inviting off white head. Aroma of caramelized bananas. There's a ton of sweet banana bread character. May be more banana than bread, may be a little more flambé. It's a touch boozy, but a really nice Doppelbock.

Big yeast smell , looks like a glass of tea..

The taste has so much more to it than the smell lets on, some nice fruity flavors with a clean finish ..

Hard to describe this one but its a must try for any beer drinker ..

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.
