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.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2010 Bottle: The aroma consists of caramel, roasted malts, grain, and a hint of citrus. It pours a cloudy orangish-brown with a moderate off-white head that fades to a thin cap of foam. The flavor starts with caramel, roasted malt, and grain. The finish has light citrus and wheat notes, coffee, and the slightest hint of banana. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Not bad, but a little too much on the roasty and grainy side and not enough weizen flavors for my preferences.

(bottle) Pours a light walnut brown. Develops an immense, lasting, light-brown head and a deep, almost opaque mahogany hue (the color of a sunset through a sandstorm) in the glass. Aroma is yeasty and wheaty, with undertones of sweet fruit and slight hints of nuttiness and coffee. Overall, though, the flavor is watered-down, weak and disappointing after the inviting smell. Taste is initially a little sweet, then a touch doughy, before finishing with a burst of sweetness that is somewhat sickening. Palate is creamy and a tad watery; it fills the mouth and slides easily to the throat. Overall, it feels nice to drink this one, but the flavor could definitely be more diverse.

The pour is a cloudy wheat brown that I recollect as being slightly "gray". The nose was pleasant and along the lines of a wheaty bock. The front of this beer is superb as the mouthfeel is nice and the carbonation average but very smoothe. There’s a bit of a bite. For my taste it was odd to move from this sweet bock-ish beginning into the hefeweisen lemon/banana-pepper middle. It’s the "clove" part that bothers me the most. Also, I was disappointed in the "dirty" alt-beer finish. Overall, however, this beer mixes some good malt and wheat qualities and it is certainly smoothe textured.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2006 Bottle. Pourse brown with a nice beige head. The flavour is fruity ( maybe bananas and lemon??) and somewhat tart, but not too much of either. Really quaffable and enjoayble, i think it lives up to the expectations for a Dunkel. One interesting note is that everytime i had a sip of it the head seemed to recompose itself till you could see it in the bottom of the empty glass!!

A fairly decent offering by the Germans. I could have used a little more "Dunkel" but I enjoyed the "hefeweissbier". Wow, this stuff will get you drunk.

What’s not to love about this bier? It is incredibly smooth, has the flavor of a rich heffeweissbier, and is not too acidic or lemonady. Also, this is one of the few beers that I cannot pour with zero head which makes it a fun challenge. It’s pallate is a bit thin in some ways but that’s, I think, mostly because there is no one flavor dominating it - as I’ve said, it is smooth.

An interesting combo. Pours a deep, ruby-brown color with an orange tint. Huge rocky off-white head. Sorta bland yeasty bannana aroma. Very earthy taste. Smooth, malty finish. Enjoyable brew.

Bottle: Dark brown, a few shades lighter than a mahogoney. Some yeast in the aroma. I got some clove and banana also. Some floaties. Tastey.

Brown with hints of red and an off-white head of foam. Aromas are wheat with an acidic edge, also has light chocolate and banana notes. Flavours are chocolate and wheat - it could be a childrens’ breakfast cereal. Hints of berry sourness is also evident along with lemon near the finish. Has a fairly dry finish. Decent but I was hoping for more depth.
