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.

Tap at Doghouse. Pours cloudy orange with a medium white head which recedes to a foamy layer with bubble activity round the circumference. Aroma is coriander, orange zest, banana and clove. Taste is herbal coriander, orange zest, banana and a modest but pronounced citric bitterness.

kingaugusta (194) - Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Pours cloudy and richly tan with a fine off white head. Nose is tame with notes of wheat, light berry, and a touch of roasted malt. Flavor is similar and full bodied with a nice semi sweet finish. Good dunkel

Schlumpfhunter (123) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2016
Farbe: braun Richtung ocker, ein helles dunkles Schaum: nicht super aber gut. Leichte gute Kellernote Nase: eher wenig, Banane, Klee, Weizen Geschmack: hm für ein dunles fast spritzig, eher mit ausgewogener Säure und bitterkeit als mit der malz/bananenbreite. Im abgang weizen malz, da ein bisschen mehr Breite. Gut, eher leichtes helles dunkles Weizen.

Découverte dans la Saveur Box. Bière sombre et épaisse, très mousseuse. Je n’ai pas trouvé de grande différence avec une Hefeweissbier naturtrüb. Mais bonne bière.
