rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - JUN 24, 2012
Pours a cloudy brown-orange, huge beige head, high carbonation. Aroma: Cloves, malt, hints of orange, caramel. Palate: Thin for a weizen. Watery, kinda flat. Oily. Blech. Taste: Not as sweet as most weizens. Not much flavour there either. Ugh. Worst dunkelweizen I’ve had.

Vells (921) - Riga, LATVIA - MAY 14, 2015
Quite a pleasant surprise (after some horror beers tho). Lovely wheat, some roasted notes, bit bready, some fruitiness, banana. Moderate sweetness with note of sourish. Drinkable quite decent beer

Melnis (275) - LATVIA - MAY 13, 2015
Quite intense wheat aroma, with mild caramel, burned rubber, and sense it that it should have pretty decent alcohol content, but in the taste it all dissapears, but stiil it contains percentage of values in aroma. Mby too carbnated

allmyvinyl (5692) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2015
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.

lello4ever (211) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
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.

Hazy or almost cloudy brownish color. Ok lacing. A bit sour aroma. Ok body. Tad sweet and an moderate bitterness. Average carbonation. Rare fruity aroma. Ok body. Moderate sweet and moderate bitterness. Average to rich carbonation. Banana, wheat, fruity and bready flavor. Quite decent dunkel weisse.

EdKing (2093) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle from Munich Airport. Pours dark brown, off white head. Nose is nice. Fruity, wizen nose. Fragrant. Nose is caramel, toasted malt, banana, light dark dried fruit, prune, plum, creamy toffee, creamy wheat. Taste is caramel, plum, toffee, slight banana, slight acidic, maybe lemon, wheaty grain. Body is light bodied, touch watery.

Argonian (280) - Athens, GREECE - NOV 30, 2014
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.

BlackHaddock (4681) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014
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!
