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.

This beer was introduced to me by my friend Tommy. Together we are exploring all the beers that the world has to offer. I don’t like a lot of Spaten’s other beers, but this is perhaps the best Hefe-Weissbier I’ve tasted, with a perfect yeast-malt blend of flavor.

To me, the ultimate in Hefe’s. The spent yeast in the bottom and all. Banana peel flavors and toasted maltiness. Thick, strong head associated with a well produced wheat beer. While I like it’s brother, the golden weiss, I prefer the toastiness of the dunkel. Finally found it on draught in the States for the first time in years while visiting Gingerman in Houston. It was just as I remember it. Not bad in the bottle, one of the few beers I can say that with. Best Hefe Weiss I’ve ver had.

(Bottle 50 cl) Muddy brownish - like water from the Rhine.... Well, not completely unappetizing. Soft, with the wheat-esters not that pronounced. A bit shy for a Hefe-dunkel - turn up the flavours please. 100699

Beauty of a beer in its appearance. Tanned/pink colored head that is fluffy and monstrous. Hue of the liquid is a see through tea colored brown. And the aroma is also one of its kind. Small but rich in ripe fruit like apple and pear and has background of sweet malt. Flavor is subdued by a light presence of malt and hazelnut with a pinch on my tastebuds of tiny profile of spice. A fair level of carbonation in the drink and finish is clean and quite dry too.

YUM. Pouring a hazy light brown color with a frothy light tan head, this brew hits you with a melange of light, enjoyable scents - banana, caramel, cloves, spiciness... It’s almost like, you’ve nailed your favorite hefeweizen. You’re sitting in the shade, enjoying the light fruitiness of the brew, when the phone rings. Some A-hole from the office with "IMPORTANT SHIT". Do Something! Get your butt in and.. and... and... Who cares? What a light, enjoyable drink. Let the "serious" aficionado waste land space golfing... Let the "serious" aficionado discuss the delicacies of Bahia Cerveza Especiale... And.. the abrupt, chubby fellow tells you that your time is up. Good brew, but you respond . "6/3/8/13/14." Shut up, chubby daytime hall monitor.

Pour is a very cloudy tan with a tan head. Aroma is of cloves and a yeasty breadness. Flavor is malt and cloves and you get some wheat and you get the banana you should in most hefe’s. Very flavorful. Very tasty and well worth the $2 a pint price. Recomended!

Pours a deep hazy brown with a huge, fluffy, tan head. Smells of strident clove and smooth ripe banana. Taste is of dark wheat malt, some banana and clove but muted and disappointing. Some hop bitterness in the finish. Light sweet maltiness. Very thin in the mouth and not creamy at all like it looked during the pour. Drinkable, yes. Fulfilling, no. Very disappointing.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2007 Flavours of cloves, banana and spice, all contained within a dark mellow beer, one of my favorites. The combination of roasted chocolate malts and the hefeweizen yeast make for a delicious beer.

Pours a hazy brownish amber with a pretty substantial foamy head. Aroma is floral and malt. Wheat and yeast dominate flavor. I thought that the flavor could have blossomed a little more, but it seems to stop short of a true fullness.

Bottle from Whole Foods, Cary, NC. Poured into a pint glass, and I can see i should have used a Chimay grail. Brobdingnagian head and a hazy diarrhea colored pour. Aromas of huge malt, citrus, some hops, big banana and cloves, caramel, port. Tastes malty, with some hopcit, clove, banana, and raucy finishing elements. Very good. I did not know that Buck Dich’s icon was from this beer until now. I’ll be gettin’ me sommora this tomorrow, I’ll tell ya what, lookie here (that’s Southern speak for those who don’t know).
