UPDATED: NOV 18, 2003 Bottled. Orange to brown body, not too hazy, under a frothy head. This was an older bottle, so some of the haze may have been in the sedimentation. Retains a hint of dark roasted flavor, but lots of tiny bubbles from the wheat. German hops pretty well balanced.

seritomi (325) - HUNGARY - FEB 24, 2015
Caramel, bread, vanilla, banana. Édeskés, vékonyka testel. Enyhe barnakenyér, fémes, kukoricás. Nemtúl érdekes inkább maradok a "zöldnél". Minimális komló aroma, nem túl kiegyenlített.

SinH4 (491) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Amber brown color with weizen-typical head, but the head dissipates quickly. Light and fresh bananas and spices, but really not too intense. Taste is also bananas, spices and caramel. Smooth Weizen texture. Super drinkable and very refreshing. A nice and easy Dunkelweizen.

Pours a hazy (dark) brown color, topped with an average tan colored head. Wheaty aroma, notes of bananas and nice caramel. Taste sweet, slightly wheaty and fruity, a bit of bitterness in the end. Spicy finish. I like it. Pretty nice.
