COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

on tap - clear, light brown, decent head. A bit thin but decent aroma and flavors of malt, wheat and yeast. Pleasant.

Starts with a deep-brownish red color and lots of foam. The head is creamy and rich. The nose is full with scents of plum, molasses and brown sugar... it seems like it will have a sweet taste. The taste is a bit surprising, rather flat and not as sweet as I anticipated. The finish is bready and thick. Good, but heavy dunkel.

NIce clouded amber color, with considerable, but excessive, light cream colored foam. Spicy nose, remindes me of clove and cinnamon. Flavor is not dissapointing really. Nothing overpowering, but some wheat taste, with a little sweetness too. Palate is a tad bit subdued, for the flavor of the beer unfortunately.

The aroma gives dark malt first, spices later. The body is light and so is the amount of flavor. The finish is dry spice. Disappointing.

Cloudy brown color,nice tall mildly tan head,Sweet wheat smell with a slight spicey and fruity smell to it.Fruity taste,mildly wheaty with a very slight spice to it,and mildly sweet.The after taste is spicey and mildly fruity with an even milder hop presence you almost have to search for it to find it.Is it a bad brew,i don't think so,but it is nothing great ethier,but well worth the try.

Looked exactly like the picture and had a light aroma of wheat and malt. The taste was a delight, light fruit, wheat, hints of caramel. It should be noted that at first it tasted somewhat watery to me but gradually it climbed the scales and made my tastebuds happy.

BBB63 (5943) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 8, 2003
Hazy brown color with a big head and excellent lacing, more body than standard hefeweizens. A caramel sweet nose with the hints of fruit and wheat. The fruit twang is well balanced by the sweet malts. Coffee hint in aftertaste, dry. I would rate this slighty higher than their basic hefe. Recommended weiss-dunkel.

DrinkingbuddyD (129) - Warsaw, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2003 Cloudy brown color. Large, long-lasting, white head. The flavor is a sweet wheaty-malt finished with a tangy citrus zing. I also noticed a candy aftertaste. Not too complex, but tastes pretty good and goes down smooth.

Hazy medium brown body with a large white head. Yeasty aroma. Some wheat, spices, and malts come through. Nothing very complex
