2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This was a dissappointment, compared with the other Kapuziner-Weizen. Too anonymous, too little taste. Some hints of burned malt, but not much else. It’s not bad, but it’s not above average either.

An opaque brown beer with a nice brown head. The aroma is sweet and dominated by banana. The flavor is of wheat and with slight notes of roasted malt and banana.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Compact foam of medium duration. Color dark, enough torbid and dense brown. Determined scent but not strongly. Crisp and prickly. Good duration. Unusual but decidedly valid.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. An extremely strong coffee malt aroma - smells more like a straight dunkel than a dunkelweizen. Dark coffee brown - completely opaque. Strong smoky coffee malt flavor as well - very little bitterness yet very little flavor that suggests a Weizen. I have to give this top ratings - this isn’t just a dark Hefeweizen as is so often the case - this is exactly what I think a dunkelweizen should taste like - strong smoky malt flavors with the smoothness of a Weizen. Consider this the best dunkelweizen I have ever had.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium, lacey head. Dark red-brown colour. Malty sweet aroma. Banana taste, slightly caramelly and a taste similiar to chocolate, but more like cocoa.
Negative point is the body, which comes out a bit too thin. Otherwise a very nice example of the style.

(Bottled) Very dark brown color with a large head. Sweetish banana aroma. Sweetish, slightly burned-malty flavor with some fruitiness (banana). Medium-bodied, quite carbonated and rough palate. A decent hefeweizen, although a bit thin.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dough, chocolate and banana aroma - if it was the smell of the dough for a cake i would be looking forward to it...
Murky brown, fluffy white-brown head with nice lacing.
Interresting flavor profile: Ripe bananas, coffee with sugar, some chokolate, raspberries, spices.
Medium body, creamy mouthfeel.
A dark hefeweizen with character.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy orange-yellow with foamy white head. Aroma strong of banannas and sugar. Taste is much like the aroma. Not much wheat but a whole lot of caramel and ripe bananna. Very sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice - feel like I'm using my German weis template for dunkles - bananas, sweetish with a sour finish, not overly roasted for the dark color. I only wish I could get more fresh stuff for as cheap as it was (forget the airfare) instead of having to beg the ex to tote it back as THAT leaves a very bitter aftertaste.
