Pours a light brown with an off-white head that dissipated quickly, leaving no lacing. Aroma is spicy like a hefe. Taste is similar to Ayinger hefe-weizen with spices and banana undertones, but maltier and a tad smoother. Very easy to drink.

Pretty dark for a wheat beer. Traces of apple and clove. Quite carbonated. The nice head seemed to dissapear pretty quickly. I would prefer a little more hops, but it’s still awful good.

I really enjoy these type of weizen / weisse beers, this particular beer is very sweet throughout. It gives you hints of orange and subtle tart fruits from start to finish. Very smooth and delicate on the palate, enjoyable. The smell and apperance are rather standard. I must add that this does contain ample spicing. Complexity and flavor is all there, I like it!

Murky caramel with a light, fluffy off-white head. Warm banana bread, caramel, spicy clove and cream of wheat cereal. The body is moderate and pleasant. Tasty and refreshing flavor profile. The yeast adds a spicy-type dryness that is unique but pleasant. Not bad.

A nice tasty little dunkelweizen from Ayinger. I would never say this could be my favorite dunkel, but I would definitely buy this again. Worth a try (or two)

Refreshing. Pours a deep hazy orange with an impressive white head. The aroma is somewhat grassy, yeasty, and with a whiff of banana. Has a full mouthfeel with mild malty tastes, some light fruitiness (pear?), and a touch of spices. The finish is where I’m catching some citric hoppiness. Decent.

Pours a hazy brown/orange color, with ample head. Aroma is sweet and spicy, with a bit of an acidic smell as well. Flavor is somewhat sweet and fruity with a spicy flavor in there as well. Finish is dry and bitter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy apricot color with a very nice off white head. Aroma was first banana then yeast then spice (cinnamon,clove). Flavor starts tangy and spicy with a hint of fruit (apple, white grape) and finishes kinda dry with a light banana aftertaste. Palate a little thin, but overall a nice brew.

excellent example of a Dunkelweizen. Roasted malt flavor, highly drinkable. Interesting appearance, dark golden color, and an infinite amount of carbonation.
