3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Ayingers Speis und Trank . Pours a paler brown than other dunkelweizen I’ve had; cloudy caramel rather than dark brown, though still a thick head. The aroma manages to penetrate the head, and there’s malts and a little banana there. Taste up front is banana, with a little chocolate and bread. Finish is spiced dried fruit.

Aroma: malty and grassy; Appearance: hazy amber pour with white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: fairly rich and malty with banana undertones; Palate: medium-heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: better than a hefeweizen but still a tad banana-y. Would probably not seek out again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beerdock, Nantwich. Pours a cloudy amber colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of vanilla, bready malts, banana, clove, some caramel, slight spice and subtle orange. Taste of bready malts, vanilla, banana, spice, some caramel, slight clove, a little wheat and subtle orange zest. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dryish, bready, spicy bitterness in the finish. Not dark and roasty enough to be a dunkelweizen, but as a Weissbier it’s gorgeous. A lovely sweet, vanilla bread aroma followed by a rich, traditional Weissbier flavour with a hint of spice and citrus. Lovely.
