3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured mostly clear medium amber with a short toasted beige head. The aroma picked up mostly nutty and biscuity notes with accents of clove and cocoa.. warm and welcoming. The flavor found light cocoa, vanilla, and biscuity malts at the core, with tart, lightly bitter wheat and cloves around.. dry, tart, and a touch cola-ey on the finish. Light-medium bodied with prickly carbonation on the palate.. OK feel and flow.. this was aiight.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice dark orange-brownish color with tall foam. The aroma is a bit light, nothing very prominent in there. A bit of wheats and toffee, banana, a bit of freshness. The aroma is a little bit too light for my taste, but maybe it’s due to my nose being too busy with the environment (there?s quite a few people in here). The taste has bananas, toffee, caramel, yeasts - classic Dunkelweizen notes. Smooth carbonation. A decent, proper Dunkelweizen which gets better and better with every sip. I?d just call it "lecker". But I also have a predisposition for Dunkelweizen, which is one of my favourite styles.

Hacker-PSchorr Weizen is a really good hefeweizen and this is kind of like a lesser version of that, which is often the case w/ Dunkelweizens. It is a ruddy orange brown beer w/ a long lasting head of fine bubbles. It starts w/ a bit of banana on the nose and continues to some raisiny malt. Some sweetness and tartness once tasted gives this raisin note a bit of a vinous note along the lines of a port wine--albeit w/o any oxidized notes. This has a nice creamy palate appropriate to the style but is maybe just a touch too heavy to be really perfect. It finishes w/ some lingering sweet banana and bread yeast notes. This is a pretty tasty beer overall but I prefer my wheats lighter in texture, drier w/ a more vibrant yeast character.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pours a semi-hazy, amber color with a thick, foamy beige head. The aroma is rich with wheat and citrus. The taste is smooth with a decent flavor and drinks quite nicely. Not overly complex, just a simple German weisse beer.

500ml bottle - Pours hazy copper with a big foamy off white head. Nose is a mix of mellow yeasty dough and sweet banana, A touch of clove and coriander, with a hint of citrus. Taste is sweet wheat cut with some doughy yeast and light breadiness. Mellow spiciness and a warming finish. Banana and overripe tropical fruit in the finish. A little boozy sharpness takes over through the finish. Okay, but a little unfocused.
