Pour is burnt orange with a creamy tan cap that sticks around for a bit. Nose is mostly banana bread and spice. Taste is sweet and slightly sour, with notes of ripe bananas, caramel, roasted grain and a bit of spice. It’s a bit watery overall, which seems to mute a lot of the flavour. Passable.

simardsam (230) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
Brune-orangée, trouble, avec un épais col de mousse beige presque brune. Nez de pain aux bananes et de céréales grillées. Goût de bananes, de caramel, de grillé et d’épices. Onctueuse en bouche au début, mais devient mince en fin de gorgée. Pas trop mal, pas extraordinaire, mais ça passe bien.

À l’oeil: un beau brun-orangé trouble avec un col mousseux crémeux. Au nez: du pain aux bananes, une impression de fumé. Au goût, céréales, café, banane, poivre. Le goût n’est pas imposant, je dirais même qu’il est discret, mais il est complexe. Pratiquement sans arrière-goût. Sur la langue: pas mal effervescente, style micro-bulles. Plutôt soft comme bière. Goodie!

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes braunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, röstmalzig, leicht fruchtig würzig. Geschmack hefig, leicht würzig, leicht fruchtig.

500ml bottle as “Fürstenberg Weizen Hefe Dunkel” at abv 5.4% bought at Wai Shing Wine & Spirits in Landmark North, Sheung Shui.

Translucent deep brown colour with some dirt-like yeast sediments; One finger head with crumpety off-white foam which lasted for 2 minutes; Very good sticky lacing and quite fizzy carbonation; Very fragment aroma of banana, vanilla, sugar, light roasted malt, wheat, caramel, light chocolate, yeast, light cloves, and faint grass; Close to low sweet taste of strongly-roasted malt, with tart notes, fairly light banana, toffee, light caramel, yeast, light cloves, liquorices, lemon and light grass; Mid to light body, slightly slick and crisp palate; Mouth feel is tasty and very roasty, quite slick and tight. The usual banana and ester tastes gave way to strong roastiness (but not very nutty), toffee and light caramel. Clove and spices are also on the lighter side, with some good tart wheaty notes throughtout. Nice! Hoppiness is light grass in nose, light lemon in taste. Liquorices is light but works well with the roastiness for a lightly astringent and tart finish; Pretty dry after taste, very easy and roasty to mouth.

Comments: This one has some really good roastiness in aroma and taste, plus nice tart wheaty notes, good light toffee characters and clever hoppiness which more than made up for its lighter banana and clove elements. Tasty and refreshing, an unexpected Dunkelweiss gem!

Bouteille de 500ml achetée à la SAQ. Bière de couleur brune foncée avec reflet un peu plus pâle. La mousse est épaise et aérée au service mais s’épaissit rapidement pour devenir onctueuse et formée une longue et épaisse dentelle. Odeur de malt torréfié, café, girofle, pain aux bananes et sucre. Au goût le bain aux bananes ressort d’avantage, de même que le sucre. Palais relativement léger, on dirait presque l’on boit une bière légère mais extrêmement goûteuse. Effervescence modérée, arrière-goût de sucre/sirop intéressant. C’est une merveilleuse bière passe-partout. J’en achèterais sans crainte une caisse pour la visite!
