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.

Not really a wheaty aroma, but some faint banana. Dark, brown murky, body and a small, off-white head. Excellent lace. Served in a tall, straight weissbier glass. Very light in body but smooth and pretty good. Very pleasant and enjoyable with discernable banana notes.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2005
On tap at Ludwig’s Garten, Philadelphia, PA. Hazy brown wheat beer having a long-lasting large white head with good lacing. No discernable carbonation. Sweet malt aroma. Medium bodied that starts with light sweet malt, clove, fruity, and smoke flavors. Finishes with light malt aftertaste. No discernable bitterness. This is a good malty beer that goes well with Ludwig’s wild boar special.

MoritzF (9369) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2005
(bottle) Cloudy and hazy orange to brown hue with a big foamy off-white head. Dusty and yeasty, slightly sweet wheat-malty aroma with cloves and a very shy banana fruitiness. Wheat-malty taste, slightly fruity and clovy finish. Decent Dunkelweizen that offers the distinctive taste, but nothing more.

Bottle. Poured a hazy brown color with a large off-white head that lasted. Good sweet malty aroma. Medium body. Good well balanced flavor with a medium finish. Good refreshing brew.

Franziskaner’s regular hefe is more flavorfull than this. It pours a cloudy almost opeque brown with a thick creamy head. It tastes kind of roasty with definate banana and clove notes throughout. ehh...it’s OK.

Beer pours a brown color with a large creamy colored head. I can already see lots of carbonation. Aroma of wheat and banana and a faint bubblegum smell. Taste was a watered down version of what a good wheat should be. Pretty disappointing beer.

Poured with large creamy off-white head. Beer is a dark murky color, but holding up to light can see orange/brown color. Nose is of clove, wheat, and yeast. Flavor is dry and slightly bitter. Finish is very smooth and creamy and leaves a very plesant roasted caramel taste in the mouth. Flavor is very good, but moutfull is a little watery. Overall a very nice presentation.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2009 Bottled. Nice, thick, off-white head on top of a dark, orange, hazy beer. Banana and citric aroma. Cloves too. Taste is citric, fruity and light malty. Slight metallic hints in aftertaste. Rating: 6-4-7-4-15-3.6. (051108)

Bottle. A hazy, brown beer with a creamy, beige head. Banana, some buttery notes, caramel, some hops and a faint note of DMS in the aroma. The flavor is sweet and bananaish, with caramel, and some bitterness in the finish. Some spicy cloves too. Effervescent and full-bodied. Long finish. A really fine dunkel hefe-weissbier. (090327)

A huge tan head took it’s time settling atop a thickly clouded, caramel/copper body. All the aromas of a good Hefe in an overall dry nose: banana, clove, incense, baked bread. Flavor was sour & dry... yeasts open up to malts then return to finish with overripe banana and spice. Dry & creamy with a hint of metal and a little on the thin side. Good, but <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Beer/weihenstephaner- takes the cake for this style.
