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.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2003
50 cL bottle, wheat glass, 48 degrees. Creamy, frothy, off-white head is of normal monstrous wheat proportions. Deep brown to garnet body is murky from dense, tiny particles. Deep, robust nose. Light caramel, heavy wheat bread malt; basically absent hops; doughy yeast; heavy banana ester with a touch of spiciness. Moderately sweet, moderately acidic flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly bitter, moderately acidic finish. Flavor is somewhat watered down. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Flavor is spicier and less rich than the aroma. The body could stand to be a little thicker and slicker. The bottom line is: a little bit of a let down from the appearance / aroma.

VAYankee (327) - Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2003
Pours cloudy brown with a very tall head. Relatively standard wheat beer aroma - yeasty, banana. Overall the flavor seems muted. Just a little yeastiness, a touch of roast malt, and a bit a blah banana.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - AUG 29, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2004 I peer intensively, but the billowing head never appears. Not enough yeast left in the bottle to make this weisse appropriately cloudy. Some wheaty taste evident, but with the addition of roasted malt, I'd expect more roasted flavor too. But it's not here. Once the beer warms, you can catch a hint of it, but not much. Distinct lack of estery aroma. It is neither refreshingly wheaty/yeasty nor satisfyingly malty. Hmmmm.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2003
Deep, rich amberish brown coloring, with a creamy head that stays on throughout, some light lacing with an aroma that is very arousing. Yeasty doughy flavoring with some hints of fruity, with a powerful malty sweetness and that classic german wheat taste. Very enjoyable.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 29, 2003
A murky brown body with an off white creamy head. A yeasty aroma, bready and hints of banana and malt. The flavor is bready with banana, malt and spices. Very nice.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 29, 2003
Amber brown and cloudy with nice looking thick head. Spicy and fruity aroma with hints of dark candi sugar. Interesting malty/caramelly/banana flavor. A bit strange rendition of the style.

MrRomero (1972) - Nolanville, USA - AUG 28, 2003
Poured an orange-ish brown with a big head. Moderate banana aroma. Really a nice beer.

BeerSlacker (34) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2003
Cloudy auburn colour. Banana in aroma. Sweet banana flavours with hints of cloves in body dry to a crisp, almost tart finish. An outstanding representation of the style.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - AUG 14, 2003
Pours a great looking reddish brown with big head. Malty nose, missing the nice yeasy character of the pale hefe. Flavor is confused, not sure I like the roasted tastes in there. Drinkable, but not as good as the pale version.

Thanks to filthmuppet for this one. This got a rye taste hold the mayo and the coffee dark malt thing clashes with the wheat base. I like the pale one way better. It's pretty murky in there.
