Using only dark malts combined with the freshness of Hopf's own yeast, promises a pleasant taste. An authentic dark wheat beer.

An earthy brown color crowned by a lofty tan head, this has aromas of banana, light caramel malts, and some spiciness. The body is firm and smooth. The flavor is banana with caramel and apples and cloves and the slightest dash of hop bitterness. Splendid example of a dunkelweizen.

This bottled brew from batch L84050187 poured a very large sized head of frothy finely sized mostly diminishing bubbles that settled into a foamy head that was mostly lasting, light brown colored and left behind a fair lacing. The body contained unnoted carbonation, was hazy to the point of opaqueness and dark brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of banana malts hops and other fruity notes. Its mouth feel is smooth with a mild banana aftertaste. Its flavor contained mild dark beer brown malts and banana notes.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2005 Dark ruby and brown colored body. A large slightly tan head. aroma is bubblegum and some peanuts with grass. The taste is bubblegum and peaches with some slight apple. There is just a hint of nutmeg spice. Nice version of the style. Almost a perfect summer beer.

Darker in colour with a big tan head. THe nose is full of malts and caramel the taste is just about the same but overall unremarkable for the most part. Not very interesting but it does the trick. Check this one out if you can but dont think twice if you never do.

Dark brown cloudy pour, nice tan head. Aroma has a nice hop note, but is otherwise very macro and dull. Tastes watered down and pretty boring.. LIght mouthfeel. Unimpressive.

Murky red-brown body topped by medium beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, spicy, caramel. Taste is medium sweet, spicy, caramel, some chocolate in the finish. Medium body. I enjoyed this less as I went through the bottle -- perhaps it is better to share this one.

BBB63 (6200) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2004
Bottle and hefe glass: Carmel cola hued with fizzy and fading but lasting tan head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of banana and clove esters, bready and biscuity malts, some caramel and smoke tones, and a pinch of lemon zest. The taste starts with a combination of sweet malts and zesty fruits. The twangy yeast nature seems to dominate more towards midsection with a finish that is more dunkle than weizen, smoky and slightly bitter. The feel is sharp and crisp, a bit watery. Quite quaffable and refreshing. Still I want more depth on the palate from this style than Hopf offers here. Worth a try.

Geiserich (3497) - Linz, AUSTRIA - NOV 14, 2004
Aroma has malt, cloves, some bananas and raisins. Brown colour with red notes, light brown frothy head. Malty, sourly taste with clove notes, cherry pit flavour, spicy. Aftertaste is light sweet. Quite o.k., but too much acid in the flavour.
