Bottle from Beers of Europe. Hazy reddish brown colour with large, creamy, off-white head. Roated malts, banana and clove in the aroma. Taste is the same; well balanced, nice slight sourness, moderately carbonated, nice light mouthfeel, thirst quenching and very drinkable. Very good.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2014
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.
