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.

Dark muddy water appearance with a large white head. Wheaty, yeasty nose. Wheaty slightly earthy taste with a hint of orange. A reasonable weissbier, a little tinny in taste.

16oz bottle: Aroma is classic hefe with a bit of chocolate and a hint of banana mixed in. An interesting combination. Pours orange-brown in the glass with a tan head. Decent mouth feel, reminds me of normal dark beers. Definately a hefe for dark beer lovers.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 6, 2004
Cloudy orange-brown body, medium light tan head. Aroma of banana and clove. Flavor is mostly the same although tangy wheat, toast, and a hint of chocolate keep the yeast from totally dominating the palate. Not as good as their regular Hefe-Weissbier but still not too shabby.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Dark brown-cloudy with lofty, protein-ladden head. Light malts for how dark but very smooth and neither dry nor sweet but very much mellow. Slight nanner tones and minimal apple. Mostly a weak apple sauce flavor. All in all, rather bland. But not bad.

bluevegie (3063) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2004
Very large tan coloured head sat on top of a murky light brown body. The aroma was of lemon, cloves, yeast and maybe some cinnamon. Taste was slightly watery, smooth, a bit tart, soft spice and some pear. I was expecting more but at least it was a little different.

Sampled at the Ludwig's Garten Oktoberfest party. Poured a cloudy reddish brown color with a large off white head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma was sweet with banana and clove esters. Taste was roasty, yet at the same time sweet with more banana and clove. An average dunkelweisse.

My first of this interesting style. Very smoky. Dark chocolatey color. Huge frothy head that took a long time to dissipate. Smells similiar to an Aventinus, but its taste is different. Sweetness follows. Smooth. I can feel that this is related to their Hefeweisse, but I do enjoy that one more.

My first of this style. Very smooth and easy drinking. I didn’t taste any of the characteristics of a hefe, but the roasted malt was still good.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2004 In the 0.5 L bottle. Massive beige head bursting above the weizen glass. Glorious murky brown yeasty cloudy color. Delicious aroma of esters. Tart and sweet in taste. Indeed, this is my favorite of the litter. Drink it outside on an almost fall Nebraska Friday afternoon. Life is good. UPDATE: Now on tap at the Crescent Moon Alehouse (12/07/04).

Appearance: deep, murky, reddish brown color, with a huge, puffy, creamy head. Aroma: sweet, spicy, yeasty, breadish, hints of raisins, cocoa, figs, vanilla, caramel...really complex stuff! Heady, potent, rich, sweet, sour, spectacular! Lush, smooth mouthfeel. Big fruit and malt in the flavor. Soft, smooth, hoppy. A delicious sweet fruitiness runs through the length of the brew, and rewards one in each and every sip. Yeast is a strong flavor component, giving an overall feel of sweet, fruity bread, all blended up and beery of course! Dunkel weizen is an incredible style done right, and this is one of those!
