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.

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).

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2004
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!

The best I could do was to pour this into my Shneider Aventinus glass. Was it goint to acquire, by some Lamarckian magic, the qualities of such a fine beer? Quite possibly not but nevertheless it did look quite fine in the glass. the booming head as per the picture and a fine amber hue. The whiff of wheat combined with a rasin toast aroma of cinnamon and rasin is quite a welcome one. I found the body to be acceptable given the ABV of this beer and consider the complexity of flavours to be those of a good beer of this nature. Considering that in most cases I would turn right away from a beer that had wheat in it I am happy to call this a beer of good quality and pleasant disposition.

hopdog (9642) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2004
On tap. Poured a hazy medium brown with a small head. Wheaty, roasty and light spicey aroma and tastes. Very watery and thin body (yuck). The body completely turned me off the tastes of this beer (I could not get beyond it).

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Cloudy brown with a huge foamy white head. Aroma of cloves cinamon and spice. A sweeter beer with cloves and slight banana taste. Smooth with the bite you find at the end of a hefe.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 2, 2004
Pours a brown/amber color, hazy with an off-white rocky head that died quite quickly. The lace was decent and the head maintained a light layer for most of the time. Aroma was of cloves, bananas ? fruity with some citrus hints. The taste was sweet and citrusy with bananas and a tart finish. The feel was smooth, effervescent, and a little bite at the end: medium bodied and well balanced. It is an enjoyable beer with interesting characteristics of a hefe and a dunkel. Finish was a little dry and tart. Not as well balanced as some hefe-weizens.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - AUG 21, 2004
HUGE frothy head, lasting. Nice copper color. Wheat, apples, and malt dominate the aroma. Smooth, thin body. Spicey, cinnamon, cider, malt taste to it, slightly watery.

Bottle. Poured a cloudy brown. Big, fluffy, tannish head. Smells like a Hefe. Spices, yeast in flavor and aroma. Malt is helped by the roasted grain addition. Mouthfeel is light like a hefe. Decent.
