50 cl. bottle sampled @ Kulminator. Presumably 1989 Vintage. Bottle actually says made in West-Germany, that is just crazy by this point. What a blast from the past! Amber brown with surprisingly a decent off-white head. Smell is cardboard, liquorish, brown apple. Taste is bit watery, liquorish, dark fruits, spices, light oxidation, faintly vinous, raisins,… Soft carbonation. This was actually not bad, really surprised that a 25 year old Dunkelweizen is good. West-German quality? Very interesting.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Tasted as old beer (15 years) in De Kulminator under its old name EKU Hefeweizen Dunkel, like most raters here, apparently. Beige head, warm deep brown colour. Sourish onset moving towards caramel, some banana and cloves as expected in this style, dryish finish with slight toasted bitterishness, thin mouthfeel. Suffered a bit from old age - 15 years is in any case way too old for a wheat beer. Loved to have purchased a young one for comparison, but apparently it doesn’t exist anymore.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 31, 2012
50cl Bottle @ Kulminator, Antwerp. Vintage 1989. Brown coloured dunkeweizen with some light carbonation still left and a small off white head. Caramel malty and slightly old hinted aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is sweet malty, slightly wattery and elder aroma. Misses some character but is actually surprisingly good for such an old beer!!!!

Årgång 1989. Stor källardoft, mycket smak, lite söt kola och farinsocker, men inget kvar av den gamla originala brygden.

gyllenbock (7999) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2012
Bottle at Kulminator, March 2012. Vintage 1989. I hesitated whether I should order a 23 year old Dunkelweizen. But the beer was unexpectedly good, not fantastic but still drinkable. The beer was clear amber in the color with a surprisingly large head. Still quite a lot of carbonation left. The aroma and taste contained dark fruit, caramel, notes of port wine and some yeast. Propably far from the original taste but for sure an interesting beer to try.

Bottled (some old dusty vintage). Deep amber colour, mediumsized foamy head. Nicely madeiraish notes in the nose. Flavour is raisins, plum and also has some mildl dark fruits and spices. Mild toasted notes in the background too.
