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

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Brown. Nice sized tan head is bubbly and chunky. Big malt aroma with some dark fruit and clove, also. Very dry with subtle flavors that match the aroma. Unexpected. I drank this well chilled- I’d like to try closer to room temp. to see if the flavor gets any stronger. Medium body with tingling carbonation. Dry finish and aftertaste. Good, have to try again.

JoshuaB (476) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Murky brown with some tan head that fizzled away rather quickly. Aroma was odd, very cider like. Taste was sour wheat and apples. Where is the malt? None to be found here. Lighter bodied and not very good. Eh.

DarkElf (3051) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 17, 2005
(500 ml bottle: $2.59 at BevMo in La Jolla, CA) Sweet, malty, caramely, almost sugary nose is very nice, but the sugary sweetness is getting dangerously close to seeming like it’s meant to cover up weaknesses. The sugary, caramely sweetness is the prevailing flavor, but wheat and banana are pretty apparent as well. There’s even a very slight lemony tartness in the finish. Light-medium in body, leaning toward medium I suppose. Lightly carbonated, so it’s smooth on the palate, but also doesn’t keep the palate alive. Slightly cloudy and medium brown in appearance. The head is light-tan in color, tall on the pour, and gradually settles to a thin but complete layer. But an oddity is the half-inch thick layer of subsurface cloudiness immediately underneath the head, much much cloudier and somewhat paler than the body. In the end, this is pleasant, but my lasting impression is that this beer just seems too sugary, kind of thin, and simply not a high quality German Dunkelweizen.

Ratman197 (12958) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Bottle poured a cloudy brown with a tan head. Aroma of carmel, bananas And a hint of spices. Flavor was carmel, lemon and a bit of spice. This one smells better than it tastes.

frankenkitty (2006) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Cloudy, rusty-brown with plaster-chunks of sediment and glutenous gobs of protein... capped with a rocky, tan-colored, large-bubbled head. I was expecting more of a malted aroma by the look of it, but was confronted only by soapy, doughy yeasts. A bizarre vegetal-sour flavor offset by some caramel malts. Weak in the mouth with light astringency to end things.

Padron4KM (792) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 28, 2005
16.9 oz bomber, no freshness date.
Pours out cloudy caramel color, with a 2" tan head.
Caramel aromas mixed with some banana and wheat, a little sourness in there too.
Flavors are mostly tart lemon, with a little chalkyness, and some spice.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2005
The beer pours from the 500ml brown bottle a cloudless burnished copper color with a humongous creamy head the is light tan in color, as it ever so slowly fades away the residual lace forms a fine blanket to coat the glass. Nose has a sweet caramel aroma with a nice bit of wheat, fresh and pleasant to the senses, start is lightly sweet with a good grain presence, and the top is light to middling in feel. Finish is benignly hopped and the acidity purposeful, very dry aftertaste, a pleasant enough beer, and one that goes well with the rapidly approaching Arizona summer.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2005
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.

hotstuff (4840) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 3, 2005
Bottle. Large sized ivory head that was mostly lasting, fair lacing, fine-small sized bubbles, no visible carbonation, hazy, and a deep orange, brown hue. Malty, caramel, sweet, and spicy aroma. Flavor was sweet, malty and some caramel. Smooth and somewhat thin mouthfeel.

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.
