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.

Mild aroma, with mild malt tones. Appearance is medium dark, with a nice head. Taste is very mild, average hoppiness, and very mild caramelized malt taste. Overall, a fairly pleasant beer, but the light body and light taste are not inspiring.

Dark brown, strong white head. Yeastiness with roasted malt and wheat on the nose. Sour-sweet wheat notes with a nice roasted sour-ish finish. Some banana notes - if my mind is not playing tricks on me. Okay.

Alengrin (850) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Popular Dunkelweizen in the Franziskaner series, which was taken over from the abbey by Spaten already in 1860. Thick, firm, rocky, yellow beige head, deep caramel brown colour with rusty hue, hazy. Soft malty aroma of caramel candy, sourish wheat, flowery hops, orange peel, banana, cinnamon and cloves. Lightly sweet taste, very caramel-like, quickly becoming more sourish, citrus touch, smooth graininess in the finish, chocolatey maltiness, sourishness keeps accompanying the palate and makes for a refreshing ending.

jcr (2198) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle. Hazy brown body. Frothy, off-white head, lasting. Aroma of toasted bread, caramel with notes of banana and clove. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Overly sweet, but the sweetness is tempered by acidic tartness in the finish. Taste of caramel and bread with some hints of English ESB characteristics. Or maybe that was my imagination. Sweet and not overly refined, and I should not have enjoyed it as much as I did. But I did.

de color ámbar oscuro, tiene cierta turbidez. Media intensidad aromática, con recuerdos a caramelo, cereales solubles y plátano algo sobre madurado. En boca bastante fresca, algo picante, amargo comedido que recuerda al cereal tostado.
