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.

Brown with beige head. Nice Hefe aroma with a bit of a nutty quality. Typical Franziskaner flavor with some caramel/hazelnut flavors. Refreshing, crisp but a touch thin.

Reddish brown color, aroma of roasted malt,with just a tease of sweet banana, medium body malt taste,with a touch of chocolate and banana,Bold enough that is starts losing its thirst queneching qualities

Pours a cloudy amber with an off-white head. Aromas of malt, banana, and yeast. Flavors of roasted malt, bananas, and a touch of coffee. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel.

Large frothy head (quickly diminishing), dark couldy brown body. A light malty aroma. The taste starts slightly astringent, but ends in a sweet bannana taste.

Cloudy amber pour with a creamy white head. The head retention was really good. Aroma had yeast, roasted banana, and roasted malt. Perhaps some coffee as well. Taste had good roasted banana, apricot, coffee and milk chocolate. The sourness was nice on the palate. The finish was a bit watery but not bad. This certainly will make me look for more Dunkelweizens.

This beer was introduced to me by my friend Tommy. Together we are exploring all the beers that the world has to offer. I don’t like a lot of Spaten’s other beers, but this is perhaps the best Hefe-Weissbier I’ve tasted, with a perfect yeast-malt blend of flavor.

To me, the ultimate in Hefe’s. The spent yeast in the bottom and all. Banana peel flavors and toasted maltiness. Thick, strong head associated with a well produced wheat beer. While I like it’s brother, the golden weiss, I prefer the toastiness of the dunkel. Finally found it on draught in the States for the first time in years while visiting Gingerman in Houston. It was just as I remember it. Not bad in the bottle, one of the few beers I can say that with. Best Hefe Weiss I’ve ver had.

(Bottle 50 cl) Muddy brownish - like water from the Rhine.... Well, not completely unappetizing. Soft, with the wheat-esters not that pronounced. A bit shy for a Hefe-dunkel - turn up the flavours please. 100699

Beauty of a beer in its appearance. Tanned/pink colored head that is fluffy and monstrous. Hue of the liquid is a see through tea colored brown. And the aroma is also one of its kind. Small but rich in ripe fruit like apple and pear and has background of sweet malt. Flavor is subdued by a light presence of malt and hazelnut with a pinch on my tastebuds of tiny profile of spice. A fair level of carbonation in the drink and finish is clean and quite dry too.
