Again from the store on the Autobaun. Poured fuzzy brown with huge tan head. Could eat the head with a spoon. Neat. Aroma of burnt malt with a bit of smoke. I like rich brown beers wth complex flavors and this one did not fail me. Pretty good.

Cloudy brown body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of burnt wheat, pop-corn and dare I say manure. Taste of broiled vegetables, wheat and those boxes of animal food we buy when we go to the zoo. All that in a watery body. Like all my below 1.0 ratings, drain pour. All those good ratings, who would have thought cows had access to the internet.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a dark brown color with some murky cloudiness. Hard to get all 0.5L in one bottle with the head so huge, just finished the last fraction straight from the bottle. Large pillowy head. The head lasted through the entire drink. Flavor was a bit too smoked and roasted for my likings, although the bananas and cloves were burried in the flavor. The finish was very dry, champagne-like. Can do better than this, although I’ll take a straight hefe over any dunkel hefe anyday.

Very dark brown/black with a dense, spongey, off white/light gray head. Nose of wheat and toasted grains, subtle chocolate and clove. Same flavors. Medium body is bit more bubbly than balanced. Would pair excellent with bratwurst or polish sausage. Solid brew.

Wheaty banana in aroma. head isn’t real good. Taste is pretty smooth and not too wheaty at first, but there isn’t much there either. Simple, okay, but too much wheat in the end.

Bottle. Deep brown color with creamy long lasting head. Charred and roasted aroma with fruits and clove. The flavor is roasted, bready, grainy and oily with salty licorice, clove and banana notes. More roast, bread and banana in the finish. Complex and balanced. Delicious!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a dark almost black brown with a small bubbly tan head. The aroma is very nice typical hefe nose of banana, wheat, honey, cinnamon, citrus hops. The taste starts malty on the palate with a slight caramel sweetness followed by a cinnamon, pepper, spicy citrus hop bite. Finishing light on the palate, soft and bready in the finish....fantastic.
