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.

Good deal. Faint aroma, poured with large head, merky brownish color, malty, heavy on the yeast, some wheat, little hops. A good beer. Does it get any more German than this?

This is a very pleasant German Wheat. Doesn't quite have the banana/clove taste I've become accustomed to but this beer has very good balance.

Nice malty aroma and taste. Pours a light copper with a mostly diminishing head. Another good example of a German Wheat, but there are better ones out there.

Dark brown color, hazy. Large head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate and bananas. A nice medium bodied dunkel weiss. Malts are slightly roasted chocolate malts. Slightly sweet. Citrus, chocolate and banana flavors. Slightly spicy. Light and refreshing. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - FEB 23, 2003
Deep amber colour with a huge, creamy head. Light aroma with fruity (citrus) traces. The taste is quite delicate, with roasted malt flavour, fruity traces (banana, citrus) and the typical yeast flavour of "hefe weissbier". Good, but not so different from the "regular" Franziskaner.

pilsnerrogge (2488) - Finspång, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2009 Dark, hazy amber colour. The usual huge "German Wheat-Head"; looks great. Refreshing yeasty citrus aroma. The flavour is pretty much like the aroma with some toffee and roasted malt added.

Bottle. A swampy brown color with a foamy tan head. A citrus, banana, and typical but understated german wheat aroma. A bit darker and maltier than a german wheat but maintains basically the same character.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 17, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2004 Good rocky head, dark brown-gold color. Banana aroma, slightly spicy. Refreshing, light body, but retains some grainy wheat flavors among the slightly tart, spicy flavors.

I told myself I would never purchase this beer in the US because my last memories are drinking it during Oktoberfest in Munchen. But...I caved, and it is just not the same. Very stale, little wheat flavor and body. Thin body and only musings of malt. Disappointing.

A nice dunkel, and fairly inexpensive. A worthy purchase, though not exceptional.
