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.

Draught at pub 55, Kfar Saba. Cloudy brownish-copper with beige head. Aroma of wheat, caramel, cookies, dried fruits. Sweet and sourish flavor with notes wheat, some roastiness, caramel, dried fruits and some spiciness. Medium-bodied. Not so fresh.

Pours dark brown from the bottle. The aroma is about what you would expect for a dunkles Weizen -- yeasty, strong banana notes, roasted caramel. The roasted notes and the banana carry into the taste, which is sweet, bread like, and a bit nutty. The finish is short and remains sweet. All in all a solid Weizen, but nothing exceptional. A bit of spice, particularly in the finish, would raise the rating for me. Good stuff.

prawlie (1499) - ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2016
On draft in Tivoli Gardens in Denmark. Crisp, wheaty, with a carbohydrate rich body, with notes of caramel. Has the expected cloves and banana aroma. Pleasant dunkles-weiss, but not quite Franziskaner.
