4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

Kobberfarge med et hvit skum som varte lenge. Aroma av malt, hvete og banan. Smaken fřlger aroma, ettersmaken er god og varer en kort stund.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
1 pint, 0.9oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours a rich brown with ruby undertones with a tall cream colored head that has good retention and some lacing.
Smell is of sweet roasted malt, picking up some fruit like banana from the yeast, as well as clove and faint hops.
Taste is similar to the smell, sweet malt up front, with banana and clove in the finish with slight spiciness present throughout. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated and soft, some creaminess as well.
Overall, one of the best Dunkels out there and is always good to have some on hand.

Jó kis búzasör. Érdemes egyszer (többször) megkóstolni, itthon nem sok féle kapható még.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Colore ambrato scuro, torbido. Schiuma persistente (rimane sempre un po’ di schiuma nel bicchiere) e leggermente giallognola. Aroma molto leggero, fresco e leggermente maltato, in bocca si sente il maltato, anche se leggero, nonché anche un leggero acidulo. L’amaro č quasi inesistente. Si sente la freschezza dell’orzo. Corpo leggero. Non dŕ particolari emozioni, ma in una calda giornata estiva, sicuramente disseta parecchio.

Hard to imagine a much better Dunkelweizen could exist. Nice malty sweetness, mushy bananas, clove, easy to drink, very tasty.

500 ml. bottle sampled @ Barley Legal Tasting Room. Thanks to Kraddel! Reddish dark amber, tanned head. Smell is pure fish guts mixed with lots of brown sugar & brown banana. Taste is same, lots of fish guts, bread, oodles of brown sugar, sweet spices, brown banana. Very fizzy. Far too much fish guts for my liking maybe age can get rid of that but for now as it is fresh, this is far too much.
