cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2005
A thick, undulating head atop a murky red-brown ale- sure looks like a dunkleweizen. The aroma is a bit subdued, but with hints of clove, and light spice. The palatte is a little thin, but the flavor is good. It does not have the full flavored body and tartness that I like in a wheat beer. A good dunkleweizen, but not a great one.

Alengrin (2186) - BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2014
Dark version of the popular Edelweiss Weissbier, with a rocky, thick, creamy, stable, yellowish head and dark amber to brown colour with ochre hue, cloudy. Agreeable aroma of cloves, chocolate, banana, cinnamon, apple peel, caramel, white pepper. Soft fruity taste with banana and red apple, sharpish, refreshing carbonation, middle phase malty with chocolate, wheat and yeast, smooth and creamy mouthfeel, finishing softly sweetish, not cloying, little hops. Exemplary Dunkelweizen and a good introduction to the genre: not too difficult, faithful to the style and relatively easily available.

Appearance with copper color, cloudy liquid and medium head. Caramel and roasting flavor. On the palate, sweet roasted malt is well perceived. It is a good Dunkel Weizen.
