2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle: poured brownish with orange and a thick fluffly beige head. Very little aroma in my glass, subdued by the head. Once the head dissipated, a bit of banana esters come through with some hops. Very mild fruitiness in the flavor. Light banana. No vinegar in my bottle. Light sweetness in the finish. Okay but not great.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2005 Bottle. Sweet fruity aroma primarily banana, apple and clove but also vinegar. Medium brown color- cloudy with little head. Vinegar malt flavor - slight hops but the usual fruit and spice notes of a Weizen are absent. Body but on the watery side. A very different Weizen. Two different bottles were significantly different - first one had much more vinegar aroma and flavor - thought it might have been infected but second bottle while lighter still had noticeable vinegar aroma and taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy oak brown colour. Some estery notes in the aroma, with hints of malt and licorice. Sweet and sour flavour, with some bitterness and becoming rather sharp. As Rauchbier notes, there is a definite metallic edge on the finish. Overall, not bad though. 500ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk. BBE 31 August 2004.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown, with a nice foamy head, long lasting, but little lacing. Lively on the tongue, but a bit thin. Crisp and malty, with a slightly bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle conditioned. Deep chestnut colour, good thick head and slightly undercarbonated for a weissbier. Phenolic aromas dominate, becoming plasticy after a while with hints of sweet caramel not realy helping. Thin bodied with a tendancy towards almost tinny phenols and a dry short finish. Not the best dunkles weizen but there are worse.
