Frischer Antrunk, nur leicht malzig. Dabei trotz der erkennbaren Muffigkeit erfrischend, brotig-bitter werdend, mild.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: Draft at the 2010 Nova Brewfest.
Aroma: The nose is a bit of banana and caramel but not much else.
Appearance: It pours a dark amber color with a slight haze and a pillowy, off-white head.
Flavor: Surprisingly thin with a straight forward caramel and banana note. Unfortunately that was about it.
Palate: Light to medium body with average carbonation leading to a slightly dry, short finish.
Overall: Very ho hum for a dunkleweizen and not worth going out of your way for.

Dark murky brown with a thick beige head that settles slowly to leave decent lacing. Aroma of caramel and banana. Flavor of butterscotch and nutmeg. Medium body. Decent example of the style.

Light banana aroma. Hazy orange. Simple, but very drinkable. Touches of banana, and toffee in spades. Crisp carbonation, refreshing palate. Finish has fresh buddy hops, green and very tasty.

Shared this one with my friend Gyurke in Wiesbaden. Pours a hazy golden orange. Aromas of bread/bananas/ and some fruit. Had a taste of yeasty bread with some spice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Amber coloured, almost clear, quickly diminishing fluffy off-white head; fruity (dark berries) and wheat-malty nose; moderate sweet-sourish flavour, medium bodied, quite soft MF; sweetish dark malty and dark-fruity finish. Not bad, reminds me a bit of a belgian Oud Bruin........

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Huge, fluffy yellowish head; copperish colour with coppergreen shine. Very much banana; sourish wheatnose. Some faint, leafy bitterness over some banana, wheat and other fruity esters. Bit earthy, metallic in the finish. Not very assertive. Medium bodied at best. Despite the initial high carbonation it feels a bit flat. Average D.W., nothing more.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smallish head, a bit uggly dirty water look. Not much esters, nice carbonation and surprisingly bitter and dry. A bit on the watery side, but a good one nonetheless. You have to appreciate it after visiting Ettal, Germany. The location is amazing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark amber with a nice head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and wheat. The flavour is sweetish, slightly spicy with banana notes. I prefer the light sister. 1574
