2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brown colour with a nice dense tan head. Strong aroma of corn, yeast and wheat. Medium-bodied; Flavour full of yeast, wheat and offensive corn. Aftertaste filled with malty tastes. Not a great beer, actually worse than average. Overall, this beer is worth passing up! I had this 23 ounce beer on draught at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York on 14-October-2003.

First off, I'm not the biggest fan of dunkels. This was a pretty good beer, however. It had a great look- fluffy, white head sitting on a cloudy dark brown body. Smells yeasty like gulden draak. Light, sparkly carbonation. Tasted like your average dunkel, however a distinct twist of lemon and nutmeg hit me at the finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the best Dunkel Weizens I've had. Chestnut brown and cloudy from sediment. Huge rocky head looking like the Swiss Alps. Big roasted malt aroma with significant clove and a bit of caramel. Smooth and full bodied with a slight crispness. Nice big spicy wheat flavor that is good till the very end. Great brewery and probably my favorite in Deutschland.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer looks like liquid caramel topped by a two-finger layer of light tan whipped cream. The aroma is very bready and yeasty with hints of coriander. The taste is lively, with a nice yeastiness to the tangy wheat character. Hints of chocolate covered bananas push through the crispness and are quickly whisked away by the carbonation and cleaned up by a very faint bitterness. A full bodied mouthfeel is floated on the proliferous carbonation, which expands in the mouth and makes this beer very refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy brown color with great white head (not the shark). Aroma is very authentic with clove and banana esters. Yeast is present but not assertive with smooth flavors. This is a nice german hefe with a stronger body and a little less dry than the original franziskaner.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Like drinking a loaf of bread, this beer was too yeasty and deep for my tastes. Bad bottle maybe? The malt was powerful and lingering with pale banana undertones. This was not a particularly refreshing beer.

This poured a dark brown color and was cloudy, but retained a nice white head. The taste was spritzy, yet subdued compared to other dark wheat beers that I have tried. Still a very good beer.
