4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
