Really poor, specially on taste side, for a dunkelweizen... Anyway... it’s not bad

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear chestnut brown, short-lived white head. Spicy fruit-bread aromas, cooked banana. Taste is sweet, herbal, fruit-cake, caramel and toffee. Again a prickly carbonation stops it being cloying. A bit like coke, in that respect. And once I thought of coke, it was hard to get the flavour out of my head. Or more specifically, my mouth.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Come le altre birre di questo birrificio, non si discosta molto dalla media della categoria. Si presenta di un marrone rossastro con schiuma discretamente persistente. Aroma di banana in primo luogo, sapore di malto e frutta, in generale dolce, carbonazione piuttosto decisa. Discreta, buona sui pasti vista l’alta bevibilità.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a brown body, along with an average, pretty frothy, light brown head that diminishes quickly, leaving a good lace. Faint malty aroma, with notes of caramel, along with a light bittersweet taste, with some unpleasant metallic notes. Pretty thin bodied, average carbonation, watery texture. I had better dunkelweizen beers, but it was ok.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flip-top 500ml bottle: opened 7 days after it’s BBD. Drank at home from a Wolnzacher Brauhaus tall half-litre glass tankard. Brown body with a red hue when held up to the light, mini-haze to the brew, on top a full and deep off-white blanket of bubbles which stayed the distance as the beer level sank. Slightly sour feel to the nose and taste, a bit off putting at first. Malty, grainy and yeasty aroma (and sourness) with the same esters in the flavouring. The beer grew on me as I progressed with the tasting, the initial off-putting sourness getting less and less important if not less in the senses. Herbal and spicy notes came into play as the beer warmed a little and the wheat element could clearly be detected later on. Nice refreshing bite to the beer, this is not like most in the style I have come across insomuch as it has no vanilla or banana hints within it’s make-up at all. OK and different, but the sourness at the start nearly ruined the tasting for me. Still think I might be spending some time on the loo tomorrow!
