Very light and refreshing, and Ill say that probably the best aspects of the beer are the slight sourness & banana-esters qualities from the strain of yeast used. I like my german beers a little more, either maltier or - I dont know, more substantial on the palate I guess. But a fine beer, nonetheless.

Bottle. Pours an opaque brown with gorgeous, fluffy tan head that lasts. Smells of bubblegum, clove, and rye. Drinks smoothly with little lingering hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied. Tastes of sweet bread, bubblegum, cloves, and mild, earthy hops. Nice effervescence. Finishes clean.

Pleasantly opaque, with a gorgeous brown head that only diminishes, but not entirely goes away. Maintains a 1/8" to 3/16" head the entire way. A very classy visual profile that indicates a very well made beer. Goes down smooth and easy and is always very drinkable. A perfect balance between barley and wheat malts. As I like to say: "Belgium makes the best sipping beers, but Germany makes the best drinking beers."

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500ml bottle into a tall weizen glass. The label has a "BEST BEFORE END" date and no abv. Appearance: The body has a brownish tan color with a very hazy or cloudy look. From the pour I got an average size off white head that slowly settles to a light ring of foam. Lacing is very slick and slides right down the glass as I drink leaving no traces behind. Smell: It has a deep yeast and wheat character. Classic German notes of banana and clove come through with a heavy sweet wheat presence. Hops are very distant and are barely noticeable. Taste/Palate: There are big banana notes with spicy clove on a solid bed of sweet/sour doughy bready maltiness. The hops are laid back and offer very little bitterness and just a slight touch of earthy/leafy character. The palate has an almost chewy slick or creamy feel with soft carbonation. Notes: Overall it’s a good solid Dunkelweizen with all the good classic German flavors.

Poured from a 1 PT. 9 FLOZ Bottle. Dark orange brown color and large light brown head. I smell yeast, caramel, fruit, banana and malt. I taste all the same, prefect:)!
