Supple, malty and mellow. Its harmonious flavour is the great strength of our dark wheat beer.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint 0.9oz bottle into a Weizen Glass. The abv is listed on the label at 5.3% and there is no freshness date. Appearance: It has a deep hazy orange amber body with visible carbonation. A quick pour fills the glass with foam. After a minute to settle I very slowly finished pouring and ended up with a nice three finger head. The light beige head hangs on well and makes lots of cool lace patterns on the glass. Smell: Big German yeast notes rush up to fill my nose. The aroma is all about the classic banana notes with some mild clove and bready sweet malt. Taste: The best way to describe this beer is that is like banana bread with nuts and chocolate chips. The palate is a firm medium body with nice active carbonation. Notes: Outstanding!!! This beer is a work of wheat beer art.

Countbeer (5034) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2015
Bottle (50cl): Served in a shaker: Medium sized creamy head. Hazy dark orange brown colored beer. Aromas of banana, malts, nuts, light citrus, bread, fruit... Flavour is a delicious mix of banana, bread, yeast, bitters, malts, herbs, nutty... Aftertaste fruity, nutty, light herbal hoppy and some pudding like sweets yet no sweet beer as bitterness is higher present. Low carbo, good medium bodied and a creamy mouthfeel. Great beer!

Elle a une belle couleur brune-rouge. La mousse est crémeuse est opaque. Elle a un léger goût de froment et de prune (avis perso). Elle n’est pas lourde, bonne bière.

Va certamente considerata tra le migliori del genere, ha tutte le caratteristiche della sorella weiss chiara, ma col tocco dei malti scuri chiaramente notabile nel sapore di "pane" che si accompagna alla banana. Ha una schiuma quasi bianca nonostante il colore marrone.

Majek (432) - Ząbki, POLAND - APR 9, 2015
Hazy, orange colour with huge and very stable head, nice lacing too. Medium aroma of yeast, malts and spices. Taste is medium to heavy sweet, slightly bitter with spicy finish. Medium to high carbonation. Medium body. Dunkel is not my favourite style, but this one was quite good, maybe slightly too sweet.

574deadzone (1147) - North Central, Indiana, USA - APR 5, 2015
Pours a hazy copper brown with a fairly decent sized eggshell head that settles to a thick ring and leaves some spotty, soapy lace. Nose involves brown banana bread, cocoa, leafy herbal hops, stone fruit, brown sugar, and spicy yeasty notes. Fairly sweet, fairly bitter. Medium to light bodied, toasty, active, fluffy, with a drying herbal bitter finish. Equal parts refreshing and dessert-like. Nice brew.

From bottle. Pours a good size frothy beige head and has a hazy amber appearance. Pretty good lacing, sticky. Aromas of malts, yeast and light spices. Flavours are mostly malty, some sweetness and light caramel notes. Hints of toffee and toasted malts as well. Medium bodied mouthfeel. Fairly good retention. Pretty good stuff overall.

Opaque light brown in colour with a substantial head that hangs around. Taste of candied orange and malt. Very smooth and balanced.

Strong and maintained aroma - bananas. High carbonation gives light tan thick head over cloudy, medium dark amber body. No ting on tongue - Nice feel and good aftertaste. Very nice.

500ml bottle into mug. Minneapolis. Part of a three part dunkel tasting Pours dark amber, cloudy, light tan head. Some sediment. Really pretty. Aroma is toffee, toasty, plum, yeast, grains. Really nice. Taste is mostly on the sweet side. Less so than Ayinger. Nicely balanced. Body is medium. Carbonation is a little more lively, slightly sharp. Finish is medium length. Overall, I really appreciate the yeasty nature of this beer.
