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.

Fatehunter (1100) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Into a weizen glass. Finger of head with a cloudy dark brown body. Barnyard smell with a little ripe dark fruit. A bit muted though. A little sweetness, mild bitterness and a chalkiness. Disappointing and weak taste. None of the style’s characteristic richness. Too fizzy, medium body. Not impressed or interested by this.

chinchill (1388) - South Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2014
Poured from bottle a hazy orange-brown with a very durable and creamy tan head which leaves a moderate amount of lacing. Aroma: yeasty banana and more subtle clove and light malt. Taste: la well-integrated mix of flavors. Not bold but highly drinkable and easily recommended as a dining beverage. M: smooth but a tad too thin and watery. O: an exceptionally good-looking beer with fine flavor but a mediocre mouthfeel. (from Aug. 2012 notes)

Pyobon (862) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2014
(Bottle) Hazy amber brown with big dense off-white head. Pleasant aroma mainly of banana esters. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation. Taste starts with refreshing fruity notes of under-ripe banana and maybe a little citrus, then develops some nicely balancing caramel sweetness, and on to some cleansing subtle bitterness in the finish. A nice balanced beer.

Torrefacto (373) - SPAIN - APR 17, 2014
Colorc caoba oscuro, espuma color crema densa. Aromas dulces de frutos rojos. En boca es dulce y afrutada aunque algo metálica en el regusto. No está mal, le falta intensidad.

superspak (2212) - Michigan, USA - APR 14, 2014
500 ml bottle into weizen glass, bottled on 12/10/2012. Pours very hazy reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, brown sugar, light roast, banana, pear, apple, pepper, clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark malt and fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, brown sugar, light roast, banana, pear, apple, light clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, brown sugar, pear, apple, banana, light clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and moderate fruity yeast ester flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good dunkelweizen style. Good balance and robustness of dark malt and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

jamestulloch (1055) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle from Jumbo. Hazy chestnut body with an off-white head. Very lively carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of marzipan, nuts, orange and spices. Flavour of red apple, nuts, and a hint of cinnamon (the missus said this "tastes of Christmas", which I think is a pretty good description). Medium body with a frothy, spongy mouthfeel. Fizzy carbonation. Very tasty.
