      Appearance (3)
      Deep red, just a bit less dark than Aventinus Doppel Weizen Bock. Thick short-lived head.
      Aroma (4)
      Dark fruit, dark malt. Hint of clove. Lots of alcohol.
      Mouthfeel (10)
      Huge smooth body. Fiercely malty, with lots of dark caramel, dark fruit, and alcohol. Very warming...very smooth. Lots of fruity complexity, less of the Weissbier character. Some smokiness.

      Overall Impression (3)
      2001 bottling. Bright brown-red, high carbonation. Moderate head. Intensely alcoholic aroma with lots of spicy esters and Munich malt. Huge phenomenally smooth body, moderately fizzy. Immense raisiny dark Munich malt flavor, fairly sweet all the way through. Hints of Weizen - clove and banana - but mainly magnificently malty. Thanks to Jay Jackson for the sample!

      Overall Impression (3)
      Amber opaque, massive head. 4-vinyl-guaiacol, iso-amyl-acetate. Very high carbonation. Boatloads of banana flavor. Fairly thick. Some background caramel flavor. Overcarbonation just might be inhibiting the dunkel flavor.

      Appearance (3)
      Translucent golden. Huge dense head.
      Aroma (4)
      Fresh fruity and noble hops. Wheat malt and a hint of cloves.
      Mouthfeel (10)
      Medium body, very fizzy. Big fruity hop flavor on top of a fine Schneider Weisse. Bitter, but well-balanced.
      Overall Impression (3)
      Very unusual, interesting beer. Bill says that when he visited Kelheim they told him that they send almost all of this beer to the U.S. because Germans won't drink it: it's too bitter, too "weird".
