60% barley 40% wheat. I don’t drink alot of wheat beers, so I’m not familiar with anything like this. The well-caramelized barley malt dominates up front with an almost Belgian earthy, bready aroma. Strong toffee, caramel, butterscotch flavors though the wheat makes its presence in a clean, tart finish. A great beer for a warm day when your thirst wants a weiss but your mind says - give me something chewy.

Just another dark wheat. Very strong aroma, but there are better dark wheats out there.

Too bad i couldn’t lay my hands on a Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock, but this one was probably the best i could get. Dark appearance. Spicy. Beautiful lacing.

Sweet raisins, fruity, scent of plum. More distensible than other weisses which I also liked. This one is one of the best of that style so far I had.

Slightly darker than pale wheats. A fairly sweet finish. Muddyish flavor throughout. Unimpressive.

To me, this is better than the other dark wheats I’ve tried, because it isn’t just banana - lots of spice here (RERATE: and then I tried the Aventinus, heh. Still great, just not the best). Rerate 7/13/02: Had another bottle of this; I’ve been drinking a lot of different Hefes recently. While I still like this beer very much, my very positive first impression has been tempered by more experience with German wheats.

This beer rocks. Read the commercial description; it describes this beer to a tee.

Quite generous and nice looking head. It would be cool to do a seven-minute pour with this stuff, you could probably get the head like 6 inches above the glass! A bit lighter in color than most dunkles. Dry wheatiness in the aroma, immensely smooth mouthfeel with some well-balanced maltiness. Hints of complex fruitiness throughout, perhaps apples, pears, slight cloves, and maybe a hint of chocolate. Quite excellent!
