3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Thanks Excellent Little Brother for the delivery! Cloudy dark amber-to-light-brown with a frothy white head. Aromatic honey dew scent, caramel-toffee, a little clove and ripe banana. Tastes like very ripe cantaloupe, sweet, but not burdening. Full-bodied, very carbonated, a little spicy ending. Very pleasing.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a gorgeous dark orange-like color with haze and a huge bubbly head. Aroma is malt, bread, yeast, maybe apple, and a slight clove spice finish. Taste is green apple and malt, wheat, banana, caramel, spice, bread, and clove. Overall a slightly heavier version of the brauweisse but not as dark/heavy as I expected, still a good drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.
Cloudy hazy mud brown colour with lots of trunky, dirt-like yeast sediments; Explosive three finger head with crumpety off-white foam which lasted for 2 minutes; Moderate sticky lacing and quite fizzy carbonation; Very fragment aroma of wheat malt, with fresh banana, vanilla, caramel, toffee, light apple fresh, sugar, bubblegum, light cloves, malt, strong yeast and shades of grass; Close to light sweet taste of roasted malt, with light nuts, banana, fresh toast, caramel, toffee, light tart notes, light cloves, spices, strong yeast, lemon and light bitter hops and thin grass; Close to light body. Smooth and quite rich palate; Mouth feel is smooth and wholesome dark maltyness, roasty and slightly nutty, whereas wheaty tartness is much lighter than Bräu Weisse; Strong caramel with fresh toast, fleshy banana and apple ester is prominent, light cloves and spices, tasty indeed!... Hoppiness is light grass in nose, lemon and thin grass and taste. Bitterness is low but notable for a roasty, wheaty faint astringent finish; Quite dry after taste, very easy and quite wholesome to mouth.
Comments: Like the Bräu Weisse, this one impresses with fragrant fruity aroma, wholesome maltyness, and a smooth-as-ever pretty rich taste. A really close match with Neumarkter Lammsbräu’s Schwarze Dunkles Hefeweizen, but it lacks the smoky, nice chocolate and toffee palate of the latter. Still, it does not lessen its greatness a least bit. Way better than the Bräu Weisse and a convincing top dark wheat beer. Very nice!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I poured this into a weizen glass.
The appearance was a fairly light glossy slightly golden bronzed amber of sorts with a fairly decently two finger white foamy head that dissipates within about less than a minute. There’s barely any lacing.
The smell makes up for the appearance since it just didn’t seem just quite dark enough for a dunkelweizen, anyways, here’s what I got, a nice banana estery clove-like goodness gently gracing itself into a fairly sweet German maltiness, very nice.
The taste takes the previously mentioned flavors to town and just makes a nice sweet sticky banana-like aftertaste to coat the finish and leave it somewhat dry.
On the palate, this one sits right at a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability running about it.
Overall, other than the look, it smells, tastes and has a great mouthfeel, I say if you see this don’t pass up on it even though it doesn’t seem quite as dark as most dunkelweizens I’ve had.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sehr hefetrüb und dunkel orange mit hellbeigem Schaum. Hefig-milder Geruch. Der Antrunk ist sehr mild-hefig mit einem ganz leicht süßlichen Malzton. Zum Hauptteil hin bleibt das Bier hefig-mild, es kommt ein leicht malzig-scharfer Geschmack hinzu. Auf der zunge bleibt eine süßlich-hefige Note mit einem ganz leichten Touch Malz.
→ Süffiges Weißbier, aber nicht eindeutig als dunkle Weiße zu identifizieren. 8+11+8+8

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
My last of the d.weizens at wob cap hill. Pours a deep amber, aroma is sweet bakery bready and slightly hickory bacon and apple. Sips medium full with malt body and flavor up front. Carbonation is pronounced and tingly on the tongue. Middle leads to a slight spiciness that evens out the malt sweetness nicley. Finish is Big malt and toasty, bready, with slight hop flavor to round it out. Caramel and toast linger. Alcohol isn’t noticeable, even at cold temp. And 5.8 is decent. Overall malt forward, nicely carbonated, easy drinking caramel/toasty wheat brew.

Bottle @ Die kleine Bierstube, Aarhus. Pours cloudy amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, yeast and banana. Sweetish taste of malt and banana, with sourish, grainy notes and bitter, hoppy touches. Rich body. Sour-sweetish aftertaste. Well-balanced and nice. A decent Dunkelweizen.
