Just like you, but different
Dark-ruby colored wheat doppelbock with a creamy fine head. Strong notes of ripe bananas, raisins and plums meet liquorice and roasty aromes. Full-bodied and warming, with a well-balanced and smooth finish. The ideal companion for hearty roast meat, venison and also fruity chocolate desserts, “Kaiserschmarrn” (pancakes), “Elisenlebkuchen” (christmas cookies) or blue cheese.
I get the same slightly sour aroma on opening, it’s a very dark pour, I got a smidgin of a head, and it settled to a lovely fruit aroma. Rich like raisins.
The think I noted on the mouthfeel was the alcohol astringent. It kind of looms over the taste a bit. Perhaps I have it too cold, there are fruit notes in there but aren’t being forthcoming.
And for that though the pdubyah-o-meter thinks this is a bit of a fail, and comes up an arbitrary 6 on the scale of arbitrary- making it at the low end and just above average. I might be having an off day, I didn’t get any of the notes that I was expecting to get – the plums, the liquorice, and it’s not full bodied by my understanding.
I’d be reluctant to have another.
