3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Glass: Weizen glass.
Appearance: Hazy chestnut body with sediment in suspension. The head is massive with great retention and a foamy and dense light tan hue.
Aroma: Bready malts mingle with hints of caramel, chocolate, underripe banana, pepper and clove. Aroma is a tad weak, but nicely balanced and complex.
Taste: Much like the aroma this is a complex and balanced beer. Bready semi-sweet intro with hints of caramel lead to a light cocoa coating over a almost ripe banana. The finish has a light clove and bubblegum presence. Very enjoyable.
Palate: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Reminds me of soda going flat.
Overall: This is an outstanding dunkel and it’s available at a great price. I’m very happy with this. 500ml of a world class dunkle for $3? Yes please!

Bottle from Trinkgut in Goch. The beer has dark brown, yet little hazy color and a nice cream colored head, with living carbonation. The aroma is very fruity, with clear tones of citrus and bananas. Also light tones of yeast, a light sweetness of caramel and a little cacao. The taste is full and soft. A little sour and refreshing in the beginning to change into a nice sweetness of from the caramel. The finish is a nice hoppy bitterness which is very refreshing. Well done this dunkelweizen.

Wie das helle Weißbier ist das Dunkle schön weich. Die tollen Nelken-Bananenaromen werden von einer leichten röstigen Malzigkeit ergänzt. Nicht zu trocken, schön karamellig-dunkel und sehr weich süffig.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a finger and half of head on a cloudy light brown colored body.
The aroma is wet grain, light caramel and slight chocolate.
The taste is amazing: caramel, toasted malt, plum and a little banana. Excellent balance.
The texture is smooth and soft with a nice fizzy.
The taste and texture are both outstanding.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500mL bottle. Poured smoky medium orange with a creamy, sticky beige head. The aroma picked up toasted chocolate, biscuity malts, and a bit of overripe banana accented by cloves and a little grass.. great! The flavor opened with tart wheat and lemony notes, with more meaty, biscuity wheat and cocoa powder following.. mostly tart wheat and cloves on the dry, almost empty finish. Medium-bodied with creamy carbonation through the palate.. it was great until the end, where things fell off too quickly.
