3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2003 Bottled: This is a nice dark brown cloudy beer. Looks very nice, but is a little tame in the aroma. The flavour is a little waterish, but still it has the normal 'wheat' taste. Has an accent of caramel in the aftertaste. Had expected a bit more after drinking the pale beer.

Malty. I like its color. Big head. Not a great beer in my opinion, but it’s good and not very expensive.

Cooked! Not much flavor. Very restrained. Lacking classic Bavarian wheat beer flavors.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A grainy, peppery nose and a chocolate-brown color with a light tan head. Dark malt and wheat taste with hints of banana. Kinda bready. Paper-like finish. Medium bodied and full-ish. Pretty good, but I liked the Paulaner counterpart to this better (see my rating).

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ripe bananas with yeast in my nose. Wonderful cloudy nut-brown body with a big frothy head. The banana and malt flavor is disappointingly weak and the finish very watery. Too weak in flavor so a underaverage Wheat!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Some banana aroma. Brown and murky, medium head. Not as sweet as I expected it would be. Basically this is just a Hefeweizen with a little more sweetness, but not nearly as much as some other dunkels. I get a little ripe apple flavor in the aftertaste. Kind of interesting.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wheaty, more malty aroma that regular HW. Cloudy caramel in color with rocky head that shrank but laced. Smooth, light carb. Light body. Wheaty, malty flavor with a bit of citrus. Clean, sweet finish. Like the regular HW better, but the bottle may have been a little old.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mahogany-reddish loks, dense beige foam. Roasted malt and raisin/prune aroma turns herbal and clove-like. Smooth palate is mildly yeasty with cloves, soft banana, apple, herbs, a touch of pepper surrounded by a light roastiness. Moderately dry in the finish. Pretty complex in the palate without ever dominating the tastebuds.
