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.

Bottle, bottle conditioned. Pours a murky brown, but it’s light and definitely has some amber or read in there. Huge (~2") creamy tan head that sticks around a long time. Big lacing. Aroma is good, spicy, wheaty, and makes me want to dive into this beer. To my still learning palate and nose, the smell almost reminds me of a belgian dubbel. Flavor is good, definitely has wheat beer character with a good amount more going on. Some spice, hop bitterness and definite yeast characteristics that I don’t yet know how to describe. Palate is light and refreshing, carbonation is on the high side. Finishes dry and crisp. Very drinkable, and really tasty right now (it’s nice and warm here today). I like this beer a lot, and I look forward to trying out some more of this style.

screigh (670) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 7, 2006
Poured a very hazy brown color. Muddy water look to it. Highly carbonated with a large head a first. It settled down but had a lasting head for the whole beer. I noticed a Belgian white aroma to it at first. I don’t get much from the taste other than a very slight chocolate and the spicyness of a Belgian white. While it got better to me as I finished it I would not pick this beer out again as a retry.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 7, 2006
Bottle. Pours murky brown with a tight bubbled tan head. Aroma is toast and chocolate with banana. Yeasty and somewhat sweet, the body is medium and the mouthfeel tingly. Not so much banana in the taste but it is roasty for sure with a mellow cocoa.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 3, 2006
Pours cloudy copper with an off-white head. Aroma is still bananas, but more spice and toastiness. Light mouthfeel. Good yeast and malt in the taste with a back of banana and fruit. I like the hefe better, but still a good beer.

Thought I had rated this one before but apparently not. Now that I’ve had the original Franziskaner Hefe-Weissbier, I will stick to that one. This dunkel version is less flavorful, but still light and enjoyable.

vulcanmeister (262) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Very cloudy with a lasting off-white head. The aroma is yeasty with some spiciness. The taste has yeastiness and a very slight hoppy finish. Overall, though, it could do with a bit more body.
