Little aroma of yeast and malt. I almost always give dunkel-weizens a 5 for appearance... I just think they look awesome in a weizen glass, and this one looks a little better than most. The flavor is wonderful- clove, yeast, bananas, apple/pear, bread. Excellent.

Rich, deep, hazy copper color. MAlty aroma. Malt sweetness all through each sip. hint of wheat through out creating a wonderfully dry finish. this dunkel weiss was a treat.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - JUN 30, 2006
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle to a hazy light-brown appearance with thick off-white head, that lingered through most of the glass. Good lacing. Aroma of malt, and a sweetness of candy. Flavor was mostly wheat, with clove and corriander spices becoming more evident at mi-glass. Palate was dry, and the only drawback to this beer was that it was also a little watery. All and all, a good beer.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2006
Brown with a huge lasting tan head. Aroma is wheaty, caramel, clove, banana and some corriander. Malty flavour complimented with the clovey banana flavour makes this a banana bread like taste. Finishes slightly sweet.

This one was a nice looking beer. It had a nice big fluffy head and a pleasantly medium dark body. The flavor was similar to a hefe in that banana and clove are clearly present. But the dunkel style also comes through. This is a delightful combination.

elektrogeist (158) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 20, 2006
bottle: aroma of rotten wheat and caramel malts. deep red with a fluffy long-lasting head. flavor reflects the ’rotten wheat’ aroma described along with flavors of dark malt. all well balanced, with a nice aftertaste. definitely an acquired taste, but probably closest to a historically accurate dunkelweizen as one can get. i’m biased of course. i love this stuff.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2006
bottle. pours a hazy dark brown with medium carbonation,tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is roasty, banana, slight chocolate, especially chocolate milk. Taste is sweet and malty along with phenolic fruit, caramel, spicy, with a slightly sweet then tart fruit and a constant hop bitterness through the finish.

Another fine one by Franziskaner, even if a Spaten product. This one poured a nice brown color with some cloudiness. The aroma was of light roasted bananas. Some cloves, but underplayed. Caramel malts came through in the flavor, moreso than in the non dunkel versions. Definite roasted character vs. the non dunkel. Not as dry as other dunkelweizens. A good beer.
