3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very tasty dunkel, althought a bit too sourrish for my taste. My own fault i guess, waited too long before tasting it! (same for hummel brau festbier, which was really too sour to rate). This one however is a genuine wheatbeer, and can handle some sourness. There is some caramel and roast in the nose. Tastes very wheaty and yeasty, some spices like cloves can be tasted too. But the best asset of this beer is its mouth feeling and finish, really smooth! and a good tangy dryish finish. Nice!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewery, a very cloudy light brown with a large foamy white head. A strong wheat aroma with clove spice, but also a smokiness in the background. Beautifully smooth mouthfeel at first with a tangy finish. Warmining sweet spice and clove flavours.

(bottle, from the brewery) Hazy and murky brown colour with a big foamy off-white head. Slightly tart fruity (banana, red berries) and malty aroma with cloves. Slightly sweet but mainly sour flavour, light to medium body, medium carbonation. Malty, slightly wheaty, sour-fruity taste; dry, clovy and slightly tart finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Olive-shot brown beer, muddy; off-white thick head. Sweet, dark malts, more chestnut flour, some molasses. Sourish taste, very wheaty and ending banana/fruit sweet. Excellent balance, some cloves, and in the finish... hemp? Quite refreshing, medium bodied, sourish tang. Another superb beer - good Dunkel Weizen. The Hummel brewery is a MUST.
