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.

Pours cloudy light brown wit a substantial white longlasting head. Aroma of yeast and malt with notes of citrus and ripe bananas. Flavour reflects the aroma with an addition of lihgt clove and some nuttiness. Overall not quite as flavourful as the light Franziskaner Hefe- weissbier. Very good and refreshing.

Red/brown color. Thick head that lasts forever. Typical franziskaner taste but to be honest I expected more complexity.

DarkMagus (473) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 16, 2005
Dark brownish/reddish color, fairly hefty head that dissapates quite slowly. heavy on the malt end of the spectrum. sweet and somewhat nutty in flavor. A very sturdy beer--nothing jaw-dropping but a very good dunkel all around.

Reddish color with a consistant, thick head that lasts and lasts. Malty yeasty aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, but it could use a little more carbonation. Malty and refreshing.

A very nice surprise. Pour and wait... Strong wheat taste at first. Spaten never gets enough credit. This is a fine effort that rates better then 71.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2005 This beer pours with an absolute pillow of a head. I could lay down and fall asleep just gazing at it. Millions of miniscule bubbles raise to the rim of the glass before combining and melting into giant creamy mounds of foam. Sorry, but this is the best head I’ve ever had, errrr poured. Anyway, onto the aroma. Overripe banana, spice and dates offset the otherwise mundane, sweet dunkel nose. More of the same in the body, but whatever flavors are initially present are quickly washed away by the overly watery middle. This qualifies this as an easy drinker, but what about the flavor?

Tap. Cloudy brown body with a thin white head. Sweet banana bread aroma. Spicier banana malt flavor, the carbonation brightens it up. Slighlty weak mouthfeel.

Pours a cloudy light brown. Has a banana nut granola malty smell. Refreshingly moist with medium-high carbonation. A banana nut malt taste that starts and finishes smooth. Overall, an enjoyable beer at a good price. ($1.99/1pt-9oz)

Decent dunkel. Nice long lasting head like most hefes’. 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
