2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First off, I'm not the biggest fan of dunkels. This was a pretty good beer, however. It had a great look- fluffy, white head sitting on a cloudy dark brown body. Smells yeasty like gulden draak. Light, sparkly carbonation. Tasted like your average dunkel, however a distinct twist of lemon and nutmeg hit me at the finish.

One of the best Dunkel Weizens I've had. Chestnut brown and cloudy from sediment. Huge rocky head looking like the Swiss Alps. Big roasted malt aroma with significant clove and a bit of caramel. Smooth and full bodied with a slight crispness. Nice big spicy wheat flavor that is good till the very end. Great brewery and probably my favorite in Deutschland.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer looks like liquid caramel topped by a two-finger layer of light tan whipped cream. The aroma is very bready and yeasty with hints of coriander. The taste is lively, with a nice yeastiness to the tangy wheat character. Hints of chocolate covered bananas push through the crispness and are quickly whisked away by the carbonation and cleaned up by a very faint bitterness. A full bodied mouthfeel is floated on the proliferous carbonation, which expands in the mouth and makes this beer very refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy brown color with great white head (not the shark). Aroma is very authentic with clove and banana esters. Yeast is present but not assertive with smooth flavors. This is a nice german hefe with a stronger body and a little less dry than the original franziskaner.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy red-amber with large head that leaves quickly. Yeast and malt in the nose. Sweet malt, wheat and more yeast in the flavors. Tingly palate. Good hef.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Like drinking a loaf of bread, this beer was too yeasty and deep for my tastes. Bad bottle maybe? The malt was powerful and lingering with pale banana undertones. This was not a particularly refreshing beer.

This poured a dark brown color and was cloudy, but retained a nice white head. The taste was spritzy, yet subdued compared to other dark wheat beers that I have tried. Still a very good beer.

Darker, cola colored and less estery. Massively sweet malts are the dominant presence. Yeast is present, but much less assertive. Some roasty dryness on the tongue to finish the sweet swallow. Enjoyed this as a class "experiment".
