3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly cloudy orange to copper pour with a tall, frothy beige head. Aroma is heavy on banana and clove, lots of breadiness, sweet wheat, sharp, over ripe tree fruit, toast, doughy yeast, spicy yeast and a hint of toffee. Flavor is sweet and fruity up front, with over ripe apples and bananas, then some softer doughy yeast notes than the aroma indicates, sweet wheat bread, a little clove and some light caramel apple pie filling. Medium body, creamy, slightly floury feel throughout and light to medium, soft and blanketing carbonation. Good stuff, definitely up there as far as Dunkelweizens go.

Bottle at home. Pours a hazy, dark orange-brown colour with a huge, creamy, beige head. Sweet aroma of fruity yeast, banana, pears, sweet malt, some roasted malt and rye bread. The flavour is also sweet and fruity with more banana, herbs and wheat. Slick mouth feel, and has a light bitterness. A fruity and nice weizen. I expected a richer body though.

Hazy amber color with off white foam. Aroma of herbs, citrus and grass I think. Great ballance between sweetness and fruityness and the bitterness in the taste with the bitterness lingering. The yeast seems dominant in the taste but in a good way.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle into a weizen glass
Appearance – The beer pours a hazy deep amber color with a huge thick and creamy just off-white head. The head has an amazing level of retention, very slowly fading to leave a fantastic level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. This is a beautiful weiss in my eyes.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is huge of banana and wheat along with tons of spice of a coriander and clove smell. Other aromas of a white pepper and a decently strong aroma of a bubblegum as well as a bit of an orange and ginger smell are there as well. Overall the aroma is a big, robust, and enjoyable in this one.
Taste – The taste begins moderately sweet and malty, with the malty flavors being a nice mix of a bready and doughty taste while the sweet upfront is largely of an orange and caramel flavor. As the taste advances the sweet caramel transitions to a nice bubblegum and candied sugar flavor with the doughty flavors getting a bit more potent in nature. All while this occurs the yeasty flavors and bring with them flavors of banana, coriander and clove. The yeasty and coriander flavors remain relatively constant from this time on, but the banana and clove really kicks it up more toward the end. With the increase in banana, also comes some other flavors of candied sugar as well as little bit of pepper, which when combined with all the other flavors of the brew, end up leaving a rather nice and somewhat moderately sweet Weiss flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side for a beer of 5.8 % of its style s with a carbonation level that is on the lower side for the style. A little thicker and chewier body and a bit more carbonation level may have been better for accentuating the fruity banana and spiced flavors as well as the more malty flavors of the brew, but even with that said, the combo did work to a degree and the feel was decent overall.
Overall – This is a very tasty weizen. The aroma, look, and taste are quite fantastic, with the only thing keeping this from the supreme top being the feel in my opinion. This is one you certainly can count on to being rather pleasant.

16.9 oz bottle into my Aventinus glass. Aroma consists of banana, clove, chalky candy, lemon, dough. Pours cloudy burnt orange-brown with a large off-white fluffy head with excellent retention. Taste is sweet with all aroma descriptors present; finishes with a little dryness. Fairly mild. I was hoping for more clove in flavor. Mouthfeel is perfectly creamy, finely carbonated, a little watery maybe. It’s good, but I was expecting more from the top rated dunkelweizen.
