3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2005 Big, tan, coarse-laced head which quickly subsides. Body is dark brown-red, nearly opaque. Carbonation keeps going on. If you pour in the yeast sediment you can enjoy watching yeast balls sinking, then getting caught by bubble streamers and being carried up, then being dropped at the top and starting over. (Or not, if you find yeast unappetizing. :) Aroma is yeasty, sweet, peppery, with lots of roastiness. Taste is huge, roasty, and sweet, with an aftertaste of coffee. Very good! This is a great dunkelweizen, though the weizenness of it is not exactly obvious. It’s more like a cross with a stout, really. (0.5l bottle.)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle at Lorry’s, Oslo. A huge offwhite head that quickly shrank to a minimum tops this dark brown beer (Strangely,that seems to happen with all the HaandBryggeriet brews) A lot of sediment- yet another characteristic. Very fruity, berry-like aroma, rather sharp and acidic for the style. Flavours are full of berries and chocolate with the latter taking the lead towards the finish. A very lively beer. Not at all typical for the style, but scores on originality. The Germans would hate it, but I am not a German: Worth the 10 euros.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. I thought this was pretty good. Better than their regular weizen. Some chocolate and caramel, with some yeasty banana esters, clove as usual, refreshing, slightly tart character.
