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.

Great wheat aroma. Rich, soft slightly acidic. Huge thick head (normal for such beer), dark cloudy amber. Soft upfront with richer middle. Creamy but light, maybe a bit to light. A bit boring aftertaste, end is missing each riches, sadly. Great looking beer with great aroma, with slightly weak finish.

Cloudy, almost muddy brown color. Decent head but with no lacing. Flat but slightly thick on the palate. Weak wheaty malt flavor mirrored in the aroma. However, yeast is the most predominant aspect of this beer. Short finish with a minimal amount of hops.

They went a little crazy on the yeast I think, at least in my sample. I realize what a beer with less than adequate hops tastes like now.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2002
I wish I could write extensive, descriptive comments about this beer, but I just taste malt, wheat and yeast with little hops. Huge piles of light, pillowy beige head. Mild undertones of spice, including coriander and nutmeg. Not bad.

This beer rocks. Please refer to the commercial description as I took no notes while drinking it. However, if you enjoy other Dunkels that I have rated highly, this one should not disappoint.

A decent example of this style. Without a doubt the most commonly available dunkel-weisse in the US. You can find better examples on a Bavarian countryside tour.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 7/5/02: The head escaped my glass and came after me like a venomous snake! cloudy swampy/murky mysterious color, head finally settled dented, unsemetrical, and creepy...aroma was wheaty, spicy, yeasty...spicy, nutmeg/coriander flavor but remaining more full bodied than the usual wheat or witbeir, spicy but refreshing...Re-Rate 8/1/02: I don't like this style I really don't, I bought it thinking I hadn't had it, drank a sip, saw that I had already rated it and dumped the rest..just isn't my thang..

Usually this is quite nice. Sometimes it tastes like bandages. Caveat emptor, as they say.
