3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2011 I am fond of this beer but tend to gravitate towards their Brau Weiss more. +++ Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle. The beer pours tan color - very opaque. Has a large tan head that slowly dissipates. There is a mild sour-sweet aroma. The taste is sweetish with a heavy wheat flavor. There is a bready, wheat taste that lingers on the palate. A very nice Dunkelweizen.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy dark brown color with a large white head with large bubbles and sticky lacing. The aroma has a wonderfully caramelly sweet malt body with a light hop balance. Notes of fig & pear with the banana/clove german hefe esters. The flavor is creamy with lots of apples and yeast notes. This is a tasty hefe with some solid flavors, just seems a little dumbed down than what was intended though.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy amber with lots of head. Too fruity for my taste, and too wheaty, and too malty. However, I tend to avoid wheat beers, so this may be very good for someone who appriciates wheat beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2013 An interesting cloudy brown appearance with an average head. Sweet spiced lemon aroma, and a spritzy feel with a soft bread and zesty lemon flavor. Not very full flavored or complex, but still good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
standard dunkel coloration with a creme colored head.
aromas of yeast, wheat, malt, maybe some hints of chocolate.
Tastes OK, nothing to brag about--maltiness, yeast, a bit of the wheat wang.
All in all, not a very exceptional example of the style.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange with a metallic hue and massive head that initially cascades like a waterfall but soon settles into a strong and still top. This is smooth and sweet with primarily banana tones. Nice.

Pale white-ish appearance, excellent carbonation and head formation. Malty, yeasty, woody aroma with decent amount of peppery spice. Sweet, soft palate, cloves, apples, light touch of banana bread and some bitterness in the finish.

Most of my hefe experience comes from Widmer, so here goes. This had a bigger body, but more diminished citrus notes. Taste was slightly acidic. Well done but not amazing. Maybe a good session beer, I liked it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2006 (Re-rate Oct 2, 2004) Very muddy, dark orange color, large, big-bubbled head that diminishes quickly. Quite pleasant and strong, yeasty and malty banana aroma with some slightly roasted rye bread. The flavor is more sour-acidic than sweet, quite fruity, very yeasty and somewhat warming. Slightly sour and tingly apple juice aftertaste. Medium to full-bodied, but still slightly thin palate with slightly fizzy-foamy carbonation. A nice, balanced, dryish dunkelweizen, that suits the winter season better than summer.
