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.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - MAY 4, 2006
500 ml bottle. Hazy caramel pour with a medium white head. Nose is wheaty and spicy, much like it’s yellow Hefe-Weisse brother. In fact, aside from a very light toastiness, it IS it’s brother. Good, but not great.

A definite fruity, banana aroma. Flavor not as sweet, and a watery feel. Color a deep amber. Like it very much.

Rune (11047) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 28, 2006
Bottle 500ml from Citymarkt Kaufhof in Stuttgart. Hazy dark brown body under a medium lasting off-white head. Sweet fruity aroma. Flavour of clove and banana. Watery mouthfeel and a bit too sweet for my taste (24.04.2006).

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - APR 24, 2006
From Bottle. Pour of grayish brown mud with a thin layer of white head. Aroma of bananas dipped in molasses. Some vinous red grape qualites are also present in the bouquet. Mouthfeel is actually a bit more sharp than expected, with relatively thin and bland flavors. Some toasted wheat bread makes a banana sandwich. Final smack of green, under-ripe prune.

gnoff (9543) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2006
Bottle at Bishops Arms Västra Hamngatan, Gothenburg Sweden.
Shady brown color, huge white head. Fresh scent, big difference from the "original light" one. Fruity bit a bit stale flavor. Much less fruitiness than the light version. Low bitterness.

Eructoblaster (3791) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2006
Bottle 500ml. Wonderful chestnut-brown cloudy body topped with a huge and lasting off-white foamy head. Sharp malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty, spicy, citrusy and banana notes. Taste is mostly hoppy and carries herbal and clove hints. Ends with a dry yeasty finish. Good example of Dunkelweizen.

bubbleflubber (2156) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - APR 18, 2006
Pours hazy dark into the glass with a decent head and spiderlacing. Aromas of banana and clove. Banana from the beginning of the pull through the finish.... also some hints of clove are nice. The smooth yeasty finish compliments the overall pour. Not bad.

gunnfryd (14046) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 16, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown colour with a beige head.Aroma is fruity banana with some cellar notes.The flavour is a combination of banana , yeast and some fruityness. Good banana and yeast finish.

RichardGretton (4627) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2006
Bottle. Cloudy light brown beer with a large white head. The aroma is very lightly coffee, banana and slightly milky, and the flavour is lightly yeasty with a banana after taste. Overall a fairly average beer.

Tejas (974) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2006
HUGE enormous head. In fact there’s too much carbonization and foam doesn’t have much flavor. Can definitely taste the wheat flavor in this one. Sweet maltiness is there but not too much so. Good beer but really nothing outstanding. Sort of macroish if that makes sense. Probabaly won’t drink again but glad I tried it.
