3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2003 Not my favorite style, but a good weissbier dunkel. Very balanced, with a good noble hop crispness that goes well with the wheat bite. A little sour during the drink, nice medium body, head disappears quickly. I wish the yeast gave it more character. Decent beer, and a nice departure from my current favorites.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Good dark colour with a reasonably creamy head. Aroma is soapy and fleetingly spicy. The taste is as soapy as the nose and eminently forgettable for the absence of most of the characteristics of a good beer of this style. May be a dud bottle but it just escapes a drainpour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light aroma, slightly roasty with faint wheat tang...rich brown color with healthy beige head... The flavor was also roasty and chocolatey, with subtle spiciness (ginger perhaps?)...one has to hunt for the wheat essence here...mouthfeel a little light, but still had a nice liveliness to it...finish is smooth with light coffee hints...this is not as rich as some of this type, but quite enjoyable nonetheless.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2003 Had this in Croatia with cevape. It definetely wasn't strong enough to go with the meat and onions, but I enjoyed the somewhat chocolately flavors after I was done eating.

No point waxing poetic about this one. Well made, flawless, drinkable, enjoyable, a bit malty. Dull and spiceless

Dark hazy color with a nice head. The taste is wheaty and a little watery. It finishes nice and smooth on the palate.

nice dark roasted malty beer. Not overt in wheat characteristics, but is quite nice nonetheless.
