egajdzis (5269) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Poured a murky, reddish brown color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of dried fruits, caramel malts, nuts, and doughy rye. Faint oxidation noticed in the aroma as well. Taste of caramel malts, some nuts, raisins, a dry rye character, with light smoke, some citrus fruits, and a dry finish. Didn’t have that huge, chewy mouthfeel you usually notice in rye beers.

From a 1pt. 9oz. euro brown bottle with no bottled/freshness date, unfiltered. Made a good appearance, poured carefully, first pouring 2/3 of the bottle in glass, then vigorously swirling round the last third in the bottle, a hazy reddish copper with a fluffy, bubbly pale tannish head that settled into a thin foamy lacing, good carbonation. Had a rye bready nose with a tart candied fruitiness. A crisp, carbonated smooth medium bodied mouth, good drinkability. Sour rye bready taste with a sweet tart apple fruity maltiness, crisp from the malts, a sour lemony towards the middle of the taste and a dry, sweet malty finish. If poured carefully, a delightful rye beer, tasty with good carbonation.

Roggen bier, or "rye beer" is a unique German beer style, that is brewed with a portion of malted rye. Much like hefeweizen or wheat beer, these beers tend to be tart and refreshing, and make the perfect thirst quenching brew, and a type of beer that would match up to light fare as well as hearty fare. Burgerbrau’s version is a classic example brewed with 60% rye malt, pilnser malt, dark Munich malt, and something called "Sour malt". It is then hopped with Halletauer hops for aroma, and some balancing hop bitterness. Coming in at a modest 5.5% alcohol by volume, roggen bier is the type of beer you could enjoy a few of. Wolnzacher Roggenbier pours to a very hazy, deep golden color with a huge, rocky white head, and a very vibrant carbonation. This beer is sedimented with yeast, and like a hefeweizen, you should rouse the yeast, and pour it into the beer. The nose on this beer is very fragrant, with big spicy aromas of malted rye, some crisp pilsner malt aroma, and some herbal hop aromas. The palate is firm and grainy on the tongue with lots of spicy rye malt flavor, that is tart and refreshing on the tongue. There is also a pleasing sour malt flavor, that you can really pick up, and it makes this beer even more thirst quenching. Wolnzacher Roggenbier finishes with more of those spicy, grainy, and sour flavors, then ends with some nice herbal hop bitterness. This is a delicious, refreshing, very interesting rye beer, a style you really don’t see a lot of. I enjoyed mine after doing some yard work, and it really hit the spot. I would match this one up with grilled fish as well, or even a roasted chicken or pork dish. It retails in 1/2 liter brown bottles for $3.25, and is well worth the price.

Terminus (3229) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JAN 3, 2006
bottle-pours murky/cloudy orange with a fizzy white head. very oxidized aroma with tons of sourness with a touch of german malts (toasted grains). flavors are overly sour-way too much. its really badly oxidized. I must revisit this highly rated rye beer sometime soon.

Don’t see too many dunkelweizens, and the label doesn’t make it clear what type of beer this is. I absolutely love this style, I must admit to bias. Pours a cloudy golden amber with a fizzy off-wihte head. My bottle has lots of large chunks of floccolated yeast moving around in circles. Aroma of banana, citrus, floral Hallertauer and toasted malts. Taste is yeasty with citrus and lightly aromatic malts. Body is murky with medium carbonation. This bottle was not in good shape, and the beer deserves a rerate.

SpringsLicker (3120) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Starts with a large head of off-white over a dark orange body. Spicy aroma, caramel with some ginger and apple. Lightly sweet with a short finish. Not overly complex and a bit thin in the body.

Dark clear copper with a medium off white head. Has a prominent spicy clove aroma. In the flavor, there’s a combintion of tart, fruity, sweet, sour and salty. Notes of caramel, apple, rye, wheat, clove, banana and a little orange zest. Pretty sweet, has enough bitterness to balance it out. Medium bodied with a little too much carbonation for my personal liking. Pretty good head retention.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JUL 28, 2005
Poured a murky orange/brown with a small light tan head. Strong sweet banana aroma. Taste is spicy, somewhat sweet, with flavors of banana and cinnamon, with a mild touch of acidity. Very interesting. A nice dunkelweizen. I’m really starting to enjoy this brewer.

tomciccateri (995) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUL 4, 2005
22oz bottle w/o freshness date. A dark amber color with a tan head. Big banana aroma followed by a malty/caramel sweetness that finished dryly, with an underlying clover character. Great dunkelweizen character.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2005 What a great beer. Excellent wheat aroma that includes banana and light citrus Some smoke. This might be the cloudiest wheat I have had, dunkel or otherwise. Lots of sediment, and a rich brown color. Flavor is sweet wheat complimented by smoke, citrus, banana, and a light herbal/vegetable quality. Heavy. Outstanding.
