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.

TChrome (1440) - Bedford, Texas, USA - APR 16, 2004
Cloudy medium brown color with a massive off white fluffy head. Aroma is appealing with wheat, banana, and a bit of spice. Bit of maltiness to go with the wheat and banana. I like the straight hefe better.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 6, 2004
Bottle. Brown, hazy appearance with large off-white head. Aroma is slightly yeasty and spicy as is the flavor. Has a little more of a malt flavor than the club-weiss bier.

Not as strongly flavored as I thought it was going to be. Seemed a little too similar to a regular hefeweizen to me, but was still a nice, easy to drink wheat beer.

(bottle) Medium brown with nice light tan head. Bready aroma. Warm flavors of malt, molasses, carmel with definate yeast notes. Slightly sweet

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 Smells a lot like bubble gum. That’s a first. Looks like a brown ale. Taste rasiny sweet with molasses. Smooth syrupy finish. Not bad.

Pleasant. Surprised as I was the first time that this doesn't stand up as well as its lighter sibling. Same seems to hold for many dunkles in my opinion. Wonder why?

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2004
Pretty hazy colour with a big tan head. Initially sweet (caramel, brown sugar) followed by the "trademark" freshness/ acidity of Franziskaner. I also noted cloves. A very nice Dunkel Weissbier but I usually prefer the "normal" ones (fruitier and more refreshing).

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - FEB 29, 2004
Pours hazy brown with large tan head. Nice banana aroma. Flavor had a little caramel with a mild lemon tartness. Not as flavorful as expected, but still nice.
