Supple, malty and mellow. Its harmonious flavour is the great strength of our dark wheat beer.

Aroma: Banana, wheat, malt, yeast Appearance: Yellow/brown with a cloudy huge head Taste: Sweet banana, similar to their other but with a malt backbone and a bit more sweetness. No major bitterness, kind of needs it. Palate: Refreshing, ish. I think their Hefeweissen is slightly better, more balance due to it being not as sweet.

Bottle. Pours murky brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma is of banana, spice, wheat, and malt. Smells tasty. Taste is big on the banana. Lots of spice. Has a very bready malt backbone. Lingering spiciness. Very sweet in the taste. Mouthfeel is very light, and almost sticky. Body is very light. It definitely drinks easy. Just a really good, tasty beer.

Bought this along with the Julius Echter of the same style to compare. Enjoyed this one more! Cloudy amber pour with offf-white sticky head - looks yummy! Aroma of ripened fruit, yeast, spices and some wheaty malt. Flavors are mostly the same, with a creamy mouthfeel. Finish is clean, soft, and mildly sweet. Very nice!

500ml bottle. Poured into a 630ml weizen glass. Faint hint of banana (first time I’ve ever noticed it), and malts. A dark brown beer with creamy white foam. Poured it reasonably vigorously and had three fingers of foam. Head retains fairly well, but did drop to a smaller level fairly quickly which stuck around. Moderate lacing on glass. Definitely too cold (about 4 degrees Celsius) when I first poured. Flavours initially suppressed. As it approached cellar temp, it developed a sweetness with light roasted malt finish. Zero bitterness. Stronger malt as the beer came to a more normal temp. Even though the head was large and the initial carbonation was lively, it settled quickly into a fine bead. Might be a little too carbonated and distracting from the feel and taste of the beer. Some sediment left at the bottom of the glass. Nice beer, but not my favourite.

500 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown color with a medium white head. Aroma of yeast and fruits. Taste of wheat, banana and caramel. Medium bodied and quite sweet with a low bitterness. Has a subtle sourness at the end. Very nice and smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Excellente bière dans la tradition Weihenstephan. Nez assez prononcé, plutôt sucré et caramélisé. En bouche, l’arôme de banane explose et finit avec l’arôme de miel doux caractéristique des Weihenstephan (que l’on retrouve énormément dans la Vitus). Beaucoup d’arômes pour ce degré d’alcool.

On tap @Hannover train station. Brown colour with rich white foam. Aroma has lots of yeast and fruity notes, a bit of chocolate and spices. Taste: malts, yeast, banana, spices. Delicious! Finish is a bit sweet. A very good example of the style!

Smells of bananas, malts, a bit of cloves, yeast, and a bit of alcohol, but not in a bad way. The colour is darkish brown, hazy; the head big and unstable. Tastes sweetish, a little sour, effectively not at all bitter. Body below medium, carbonation a bit below high, but feels sparkling to the tongue; finish spicy but short, bland, and kind of without taste. A little meek and lacking in character, but overall pretty pleasant.
