To me, this is better than the other dark wheats Iíve tried, because it isnít 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; Iíve 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!

Re-rate: 6-28-02 I love all of the Ayinger beers and this is no exception. Iím not a big dunkel weisse fan, but I found this dunkel to be the best tasting dunkel by far.

Brown ice tea-like color, nice head. Yeasty and very fruity nose, very appetizing. Yeasty flavors, light citrusy/wheaty notes. Every beer iíve had by this brewery is good, nice work.

A nice dunkelweisse. Typical bananas, cloves, and spice. Good balance and very smooth. Ayinger does a good job, and this is one of my favorite dunkels.

Okay, this beer has a nice light amber color to it and slight aroma. The head is a medium tan, but it didnít hold, but I donít know how long it had been on the shelf. Interesting flavor with a slight tang to it.
