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.

The Etruscan (528) - Tuscany, ITALY - MAY 26, 2003
Large thick full lasting head. Deep amber-brown cloudy color. Aroma is malty (wheat) with roasty notes. Flavor is malty too with some spicy notes, ending in a moderately fruity short finish. Medium bodied.

Oooh! This one pours out a very murky brown, with a huuuge head - lasted forever. Tastes just a little musty at first, but once it opens up it's nice. Medium to full body, with a creamy texture. The finish is short, and a little astringent.

skortila (4505) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2003
Aroma of wheats, some spice, malts and citrus. Cloudy brown/orange coloured, lasting head. Spicy taste, bit malty. Refreshing palate.

caesar (5118) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2003
Dark brown/grey cloudy color, lasting head. German wheat aroma, spicy, but this has more caramelly and less citrussy notes. Taste also spicy and caramelly malty added to the typical german wheat taste. Still quite refreshing.

Excellent! Caramel hint adds nice sweet note to typical estery flavor profile. Banana, clove, caramel, hints of lemon. Refreshing!

Hansen (6602) - Assentoft, DENMARK - APR 20, 2003
Not much aroma, sweet. Fine golden color, cloudy. Great head. Smoked malt? I couldn't find any smoked notes, only sweetness.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2003
Dark, burnt orange color with an off-white head. The aroma is quite nice, with notes of banana, clove and dry wheat. The flavor is not quite as interesting, as most of the banana and clove seem to be missing. There are nice malts, however, bringing out caramel and toffee notes. Tasty but not too exciting.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 11, 2003
Big off white head, dark orange/brown color. Malt and yeast aroma, a little citrus. Malt flavor, then some wheat and banana. Not too bitter, smooth, but lacking dimension and much flavor. I prefer the not-so-dunkel version. I think the monk on the label has had his share of hefe-weissebier.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2003
1/4 draught: Dark amber colour with a huge beige head. Clovey-yeasty aroma with hints of banana and dark grains. Slight toasted flavour, nutty?, lovely taste, slightly tart.. Very well balanced. Once again a slight vanilla/banana aftertaste. Not as full in mouthfeel as the pale hefe though?

Aurelius (4171) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2003
Yeasty, caramel hefe aroma, with only a small bit of wheat musk. Gritty, persistant, off-white head. Hazy caramel brew. The monk on the label is a cross between Norman Rockwell and 1930's propaganda art. Sweet, worty, toffeeish and mildly hopped. A certain balanced vacancy between the initial taste and the finish. Brown sugary initial finish which quickly fades to pepper. Solid mouthfeel. A good weiss.
