3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at Food and Froth. Pours not as dark as I thought it would -- looks kinda like a Brown Ale. Tastes nice and light like a Hefe, without the banana and spice, and instead with a nice malty hint of smokiness.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Alter Hackerbräuhaus. Aroma is a little sharp with rich dried fruit. Appearance is good, with slow rising bubbles through a dark cloudy brown body. Flavour starts with dried fruit, spice and bread before a lovely tartness takes over. Leaves behind banana bread. Really grew on me as I progressed through the glass.

Pours a dark hazy brown color. Aromas of bread, malt, and some fruit. Flavor has a touch of sweet malt and clove, I think. Overall, not to bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium brown with big white head. Aroma is aventinus, clove, banana. Taste also well balanced everything with a stronger sourness. Body misses the deeper tones, is a little watery. Overall complex and good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft in München. Let me get on my soapbox for a minute. Tickers will rate any garbage imperial stout or dog shit wild ale from a no-name brewery above basically any existing beer in these classic German styles. That ain’t right. It’s just dumb. These beers have so much polish to them, and there’s nothing like downing them alongside a big plate of bratwurst or pork roast. Also screw vegans. Meat is amazing. This draft is a hazy amber color with a large and lacy light khaki head. Great aroma- caramel, nuts, banana phenols, clove. Flavor is medium sweet, decently complex. Caramel malts and wheat both shine through. Medium body with a crisp and clean feel. Lively carbonation. Really good for a style that’s no less worthy than freaking big ass 15% ABV or sour, infected BS beers in the US.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown color with big creamy white head. Aroma is tangy, caramel, caramel-coated bananas. Taste is sweet caramel and bananas, not spicy really, but a bit "herzhaft". Low carbonation. Too sweet and unbalanced for my taste. Okay beer though.

Pretty good wheat beer, but no Weihenstephaner. Flavor could be more complex.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from the tap at Otto’s in Willow Grove, PA. The appearance is a light brown color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is a powerful toasted malt smell that is really pleasing. The flavor matches the aroma. A really good dunkel weisse

Draft at Edelweiss. Pours hazy copper with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like banana, malty, brown sugar, and wheat. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like bubblegum, brown sugar, and doughy malt.

Draft at Mr Beery’s. Cloudy muddy brown with white head and visible yeast. Aroma of bubblegum, brown sugar And fresh ground flour. Taste is wheaty with brown sugar and banana. Reminds me a lot of banana bread. Well made and very tasty. Prost!
