3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle poured a coffee-brown bodied beer with a large-bubbled, "Guinness-tan" head, that dissolved like the head on a Coke. Sweet roasted malt aroma with earthy yeast. Attractive bitter malt flavor with diet cola. Rather weak, but the lively carbonation contributes to a spicy taste and mouthfeel.

Nice malty offering here. The hops are somewhat reluctant to take credit, but you do feel their presence. A good effort from a quality brewer.

Nice dark pour with a big creamy head that lasts. Pleasant sweet malt and mild yeast aromas. Flavor is pleasant and soft, with sweet malts, yeast, and a bit of spice. Good clean dry finish. A pretty good session beer, enjoyable and easy to drink.

This is a decent Dunkelweizen. Malty, and some wheat flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and dry. Very Drinkable.

Pours dark brown with big frothy head. Sweet carmel aroma. Nice malty flavor. Roasted, carmel, and sweet with a dry aftertaste. Easy to drink, easy to appreciate.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I love weizenbier and this isn’t an amazing example by any means, but it is still extremely good. Relaively light bodied for being a Dunkel and lacking the banana-clove punch of some of the the chamions of the style but very drinkable session beer and at 1.69 a half-liter not too rough on the wallet.

Bottle. Molasses, spicy grainy aromas. Some sweetness. Quite light and refreshing - perhaps overly so.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brown. Aroma isn’t very typical for a dark wheat. It avoids any yeasty, banana/clove aspects but its dark malt aromas are profound (chocolate) along with hints of red apples. Taste is full of sugar covered raisins, milk chocolate and grapes. Quite honestly, this doesn’t seem like a wheat beer to me at all but much more a sweetened dunkel or something else that tastes bizarre. Pretty terrible for the style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. The colour is dark brown with a tint of red. The liquid is very cloudy. The head is enormous and it dissolves slowly into a very firm cone of pale brown foam.
The smell is quite gentle with sour notes of caramel, some hops and a roasted touch of tar.
The carbonation is mild, yet fresh with small bubbles.
The taste is soft with sour notes, but I also noticed some sweetness, a mild hop aroma and a slightly roasted touch of hard toffee. The body was surprisingly good for a wheat beer. The aftertaste is clean, burned with notes of French loaf.
A nice beer, that accompanies Spanish Tapas in a fantastic way, a combination that I really recommend!
