Kosmokrator (517) - - JUL 16, 2012
Alla spina. Torbido color castagna con un cappello piuttosto spesso di schiuma beige. Aroma di frutta fresca piuttosto stucchevole, quasi sciropposo; gusto dolciastro con note di banana troppo matura e un lievissimo accenno amarognolo di cacao. Di corpo lieve e poco effervescente, nel complesso banale ma non acquosa o "appiccicosa".

Alengrin (3221) - BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2015
Dunkelweizen from Baden-Württemberg, from a stubby 50 cl bottle with screw cap, perhaps inspired by similar experiments in the wine world. I pour this in a Maisel’s Hefeweizen ’vase’, in which it looks already majestic... Thick and dense, egg-white, frothy head as usual in this style, colour mahogany (orangey brownish) with yellowish edges, fully cloudy with a great deal of sparkling, almost like a sparkling wine. Aroma of red apple, banana, cookies, brown bread, cloves, ’speculoos’, cinnamon, gingerbread, chestnuts, sourish wheat coming through nicely. Fruity taste, restrainedly sweet, some banana, peach and passion fruit hints, wheaty sourness piercing through with very refreshing effect; soft and smooth mouthfeel, a bit powdery and fluffy as usual in this style, caramelly and somewhat nutty malt sweetishness in the middle, retronasal spiciness from the yeast (cloves) and finishing in a play of sweet, sour and bitter, all in a subtle way and working well together, but the sourishness lasts the longest; texture-wise, one could argue the finish is perhaps a bit thin and on the watery side. Though not Bavarian and not the most tasty Dunkelweizen I ever had, this is a perfectly acceptable, well-made and well-balanced example of the style (a style I prefer over the closely related Belgian witbiers), highly drinkable and very quenching. As a consequence, I don’t quite understand the averagely low ratings here...

jaghana (4632) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle 50cl, a cloudy amber brown beer with medium head. Nose is low on fruit yeast and with light toasted cereals. Aroma is on caramel, less malty, medium fruit notes, bread touch, bit watery, easy drinkable, finish is on pineapple and lemon, bit disappointed.

PapaVillum (654) - Valby, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2014
0,5 l, flaske, 5,5 % ABV, købt i Føtex på Østerbro, 7. januar 2014. Ufiltreret mørk karamelfarvet Hvedeøl Dunkel med flot offwhite skumkrone på 4 cm (ophældt i et alm. ølglas og ikke et hvede-). Duft af malte. Der indledes med en umiddelbar syrlig og let smag, som går over i en blanding af sødme og bitterhed med en overvægt på det første. Afslutningen er let bitter. Fin mundfølelse med et normalt middel kulsyreindhold. Udmærket mørk hvedeøl, men også lidt anonym. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
