COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep and dark colored, cloudy with yeast. Brewed with a darker roasted malt which adds some maltiness to the refreshing flavour of the Hefe-Weissbier.

Decent dunkel. Nice long lasting head like most hefesí. Dark murky brown. Smells like an ordinary Hefe with a little bit of molasis and malt. Worth drinking for this catagory, but a little less worthy than a Paulaner dunkel

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - JUN 14, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2006 Dark brown body with a huge rocky head. Aroma is hard to pick up but certainly caramel and wheat. Some citric notes with banana as well. Flavor is the same, a little more interesting. Had a mass produced feel to it, really didnít think this was very special. Lacks complexity...

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - JUN 14, 2005
Brown with beige head. Nice Hefe aroma with a bit of a nutty quality. Typical Franziskaner flavor with some caramel/hazelnut flavors. Refreshing, crisp but a touch thin.

Reddish brown color, aroma of roasted malt,with just a tease of sweet banana, medium body malt taste,with a touch of chocolate and banana,Bold enough that is starts losing its thirst queneching qualities

Pours a cloudy amber with an off-white head. Aromas of malt, banana, and yeast. Flavors of roasted malt, bananas, and a touch of coffee. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel.

Large frothy head (quickly diminishing), dark couldy brown body. A light malty aroma. The taste starts slightly astringent, but ends in a sweet bannana taste.

Cloudy amber pour with a creamy white head. The head retention was really good. Aroma had yeast, roasted banana, and roasted malt. Perhaps some coffee as well. Taste had good roasted banana, apricot, coffee and milk chocolate. The sourness was nice on the palate. The finish was a bit watery but not bad. This certainly will make me look for more Dunkelweizens.

This beer was introduced to me by my friend Tommy. Together we are exploring all the beers that the world has to offer. I donít like a lot of Spatenís other beers, but this is perhaps the best Hefe-Weissbier Iíve tasted, with a perfect yeast-malt blend of flavor.

To me, the ultimate in Hefeís. The spent yeast in the bottom and all. Banana peel flavors and toasted maltiness. Thick, strong head associated with a well produced wheat beer. While I like itís brother, the golden weiss, I prefer the toastiness of the dunkel. Finally found it on draught in the States for the first time in years while visiting Gingerman in Houston. It was just as I remember it. Not bad in the bottle, one of the few beers I can say that with. Best Hefe Weiss Iíve ver had.
