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.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Pours a cloudy and mirky brown, almost like a big muddy puddle. Small, grey head. Smells strongly of bananas, vanilla and cloves. Very carbonated. Tastes sweet and citrusty. Tiny bit spicey. Mouth watering, makes you pucker-up a bit. Somewhat thin for a dunkel - seems like it’s missing something. Others say wheat and yeast - for lack of a better idea, I’ll agree that it could use some more. Once the carbonation settled down, I enjoyed the second half of the beer much more.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Murky dark amber color with a thick, creamy off white head. Spicy, fruity aroma of banana, cloves and apple. Mild malt flavor with hints of yeast, fruits and spices. Very refreshing and drinkable beer.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2004
An okay dunkel, but not one of the best. Cloudy appearance, fruity aroma and lots of sweet fruit in the flavour. Lacks some yeast and wheat.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - DEC 23, 2004
Pours cloudy amber with lots of creamy off white head. Aromas of yeast and lemon, a bit of mint. Really nice soft clean mouthfeel. Taste is lemony with smooth maltiness and a slightly sour yeasty finish. Very pleasant. And an extra point overall for the label with the very satisfied-looking guy patting his tummy.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2004
Murky brown, very pretty head, lightly brown, creamy, good lacing. Nose banana, toffee, caramel, mild spice. Good malty flavor, nice caramel tones mixed with candy sugars and light spice. Richly raisiny. Is mildly metallic at the end.

jgentgesdo (679) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 15, 2004
Pours cloudy brown with a medium tan head that laces well. Nose is fruity and banana. Suprisingly dry with banana, clove (my buddy says nutmeg), yeast notes, slight smokiness and pronounced chocolate finish that is nevertheless clean and not at all bitter. A refreshing winter weizen

DYCSoccer17 (3459) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Bottle. Fruity yeasty aroma with vinous sour notes of dried fruits as well as bananas and cloves. Slight musty-smoke notes in the nose as well. A delight to smell. Murky brownish color with ruby tints and a fine bubbly khaki colored head (does not look like beer in photo). Astringent sourness to start, turning into an interesting middle and finish. Roasted smoked notes turning sweet like molasses, then finishing with chocolate malts. Mildly dry finish. Astringency is a bit much to start. Decent stuff.

Dorqui (2127) - Brescia, ITALY - DEC 7, 2004
Creamy and adherent foam. Much persistent one. Dark and intense color, cleaned up, not torbid brown. Intense scent you Weisse but at the same time much bitter. Strongly and with a body of good structure.
