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.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 This beer was surprisingly inexpensive for a beer of this quality, $3 for a bottled pint, in PA. Pours with abundant head, but foamy head dissipates quite quickly leaving a beer with little carbonation. If you want carbonation, I recommend not pouring it and drinking from the bottle. I tried this as an experiment and this beer really retains its carbonation this way. Complex aroma, but relatively light-bodied, bordering on thin. Aroma of bananas, grape, perhaps some apple, paired with nutty tones. Lightly sweet, with little bitterness and thankfully, little sourness as well. A very pleasing beer!

Idiosynkrasie (3853) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2014
500ml bottle. Hazy brown colour, copper glimmer, average, frothy, off-white head. Sweet-ish wheaty aroma, notes of banana, a bready touch, yeasty overtones. Taste is minimally to moderately sweet dark malty, wheaty, notes of banana, a bready touch, yeasty overtones, fruity hints of red berries. Franziskaner yeast is still the best compared to all other widely distributed German Weissbiers.

Brun med hyt og tett skum. Fin aroma av malt, gjr, banan og trket frukt. I smaken finner jeg malt, karamell, litt metall og noe fruktig. Tynn/medium konsistens. Litt trr.

tfredvik (1134) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2014
Cloudy, dirty dark brown body with a large, tan head that laces the glass pretty well. Strong, fruity and sweet aroma of overripe banana, brown sugar, dark dried fruits and vague metallic hints. Strong flavour of slightly overripe banana, caramel and dark dried fruits. Light sweet and light bitter taste. Medium to light body, dry texture, quite lively carbonation. A solid dunkelweizen.

Hallstein (127) - Skogn, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2014
Dark and cloudy with a nice big head. Aromas of banana and roasted malts. Flavor is light bodied with loads of effervescent carbonation. Some chocolate, dark fruits and coffee with a big banana flavor. Nicely balanced but not too much flavor compared to other weissbiers in this category.

500ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours hazy chestnut brown with thin white head. Aroma of currants and dark fruits. Taste is smooth caramel malts, brown bread and a subtle sweetness. Very drinkable.

Not as total classic as its brother, but still one reliable and tasty choice no matter when or where you drink it!

morri (202) - NORWAY - SEP 12, 2014
500ml bottle served in a lager glass. Two finger creamy tan head. Medium brown body with high carbonation. Aroma is malt dominated, some light yeast and pear. On the tongue its a little fruity. Banana and apricot. Not terrible, neither interesting.

Rob_D_UK (784) - Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Had a couple of these in Augsburg after our car broke down, it helped. Cloudy brown orange with a good-sized diminishing white head, dark banana bread in the aroma, dry ending, starts and ends lightly sweet, medium bodied with a touch of sharp carbonation.
