3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drink by 9-17-14. 500ml bottle. Dad picked this up in Italy.
Appearance: Diarrhea water never looked so good. Extremely hazy orange/brown color depending on where the light comes through. Small very light tan colored head goes away pretty quickly leaving about 1/16th of an inch of a thin head on top. No lacing that I can see.
Smell: The malts bog down that normally bright dunkelweizen aroma. Caramel malt with a little bit of that banana character typical in the style. Not a strong aroma, but quite nice regardless.
Taste/feel: That’s the ticket! This is really nice. The banana character is there plenty, but the caramel malts keep it under control. The after taste is a biscuity flavor with the banana and it’s really nice. There’s also a very slight tanginess on the end that calls for you to take another sip. The mouthfeel is outstanding with about a medium body with a mid-level amount of carbonation.
I was thinking about going with 3.75s for the taste, feel, and overall rating, but this is an excellent beer for *me* if I want something of the style. Silky feel on it, pleasant lingering slightly spicy and tangy banana biscuit aftertaste... this is some good stuff. My first from Hofbrau, and it won’t be my last.

Bottle. Hazy deep copper color with a huge foamy head. Aroma of ripe banana, cinnamon and yeast. The first disappointment comes from taste. A bit watery, some bitterness in finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Actually, in spite of the dirty flooded Danube water appearance, this is a damn nice beer. Aromas are quite herbal and spicy, with a lot more than cloves. Flavour of caramel, a touch of banana bubble gum, cloves and a broader range of spices - perhaps allspice, I guess. Nice and sweet, not cloying it is well blended, round, on the palate and with a little dry finish. Looks bad, but tastes good.
