3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(500 ml bottle, bought in Denmark). Cloudy brown colour, large lasting head. Aroma of brown bread and some spicy sweetness. Flavour is malty but not overly sweet, some spicy and subtly roasted edges. Smooth and mellow, nothing to blow your socks off, but still a beer it is a pleasure to drink. I had it on its own, must be good with a meal too.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark red color, white vanishing head. Sweet and roasted malty aroma. High carbonated and slightly bland flavor, nicely hopped. Carbonation is too strong and body too thin, aftertaste saves much with lasting sweet coffee taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet aroma of wheat. Cloudy and brown. Flavor is sour wheat, thin and mild. Not as sweet as the lighter version. I’m disappointed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Cloudy brown colour with a thick beige head. Has the distinct Hefe-Smell and Hefe-Taste. Eventhough I cannot see the benefits of the ´dunkel´ variant is still a pretty good beer. My recommendation: go with the original Hefe-Weissbier.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is enjoyable; nice head, pretty hues in the murky body, and a subtle, somewhat thin taste. A bit weak on aroma though, very faint and thin. Not quite as hefe as most hefe’s.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brownish color with a large head. Not a very enticing aroma: mild wheat, perhaps some malt. The taste is equally bland, but there was an unforgiving aftertaste about 3 minutes later. It’s as if the wheat turns bad as it hits your digestive tract.
