Nice strong dark iced tea clarity. Moderate lacing and small and short lasting white foamy head.

Robust, dry, earthy, caramel, modest pine, sappy, Kinda wild and wheaty. Nice. Nice fruit notes, peppery.

Dry. Strong flavors and no heat. Well blended. Not a sappy sugar bomb. Dark roasted wheat flavors are nicely done and not Fru' Fru'. Smooth fluid (full) carbonation. Nice Wet forward start with dry drinkable finish. Loads of burnt caramel flavors. Very spicy. Nice dry over ripe apricot and mango flavors. Nothing fresh.

Awesome Seasonal. I wish L&C distributed to Colorado... I would drink the hell out of this brew. A fantastic wheat brew. This has to be near top mark.

A: Dark amber with a frothy white head. Nice head and clarity.
S: Caramel malt, vanilla and light fruity esters. Pretty clean.
T: Rich sweet caramel, coffee cake flavors, bready with a touch of roast midway. Ends with a moderate grassy hop bitterness. Alcohol concealed nicely.
M: Somewhat syrupy with fine carbonation. Fits well with the big flavors.

This is a hefty, sweet weizenbock. Some scotch ale-like characteristics with the obvious difference in yeast. Style aside, it's delicious. Bourbon barrel version is even better.
