2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
50 cl bottle. Dark brown, hazy, one-finger tan head. Aroma is a faint hint of dark bread, Heavy carbonated, dry mouthfeel. Not much flavour either, just a slight hint of caramel in the aftertaste. Shaked the bottle to get the sediments in, but it didn’t made any improvement at all... Had expected more from this beer, so I’m a bit disapointed.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I’d start this review by admitting that I am very partial to this beer.
This beer is a standard dunkel, but that’s not all there is to it. It is the standard by which all other dunkels should be measured by.
Alright, let’s get started with the beer - the aroma is sweet and malty, not too hoppy, as every good dunkel is.
There is lots of chocolate and caramel coming through the beer. This beer just reeks of caramel - but in a good way. Every time I drink this beer, there is banana on the palate, just on the edges of the tongue, tempting you to drink more to intensify the banana note.
The hops give it a very pleasant herbal feel to round off the cloying rich mouthfeel of this excellent beer. I cannot detect any cereals or grains, but the head is very biscuity in aroma and it very pleasantly malty.
The umami flavors dominate this beer just as they round it off - as I said before, it is a very very rich beer, but still very friendly and approachable. I mean, who doesn’t like chocolates, toffee, and bananas?
The finish is what lets this beer down. Even though the finish is nice and long, there is a metallic note always ringing through the finish. A most disappointing end to an otherwise wonderful beer. Try to stave off the unpleasant note to the finish by taking one more long swig. You won’t regret it. I promise.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice muddy brown body, with slight reddish edging. Ever so slightly off-white head that almost disappears within a couple of minutes.
Aromas and tastes are wheat, banana, brown sugar, and red fruits on the finish.
I prefer this to their regular Weisbier as it is more aromatic, flavourful and complex.
