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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cola colored with thin tan head. Nose is licorice and bubblegum, sweet hints of over ripe bananas. Sour tones throughout, not much for the palate, acidic and strange.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer has a nice taste. The wheat is not very obvious though, but it is malty and sweet. My kind of beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice large, frothy head; dark murky color; and a sweet, fruity aroma. The flavor is somewhat yeasty and sour with a kind of bitter aftertaste. One of the better dark Weisbeers that I've had.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark murky color. Really big dark brown head - overflowing creamy texture. Surprisingly enjoyable. Had a nose of raisins, but also a type of cherry candy. Malts hit right up front, but ends with good bitterness. A smooth, thinish palate.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My first dark German wheat: deep brown colour, good lasting head. The aroma is quite sweet. The flavour is delicate and yeasty, with a light sweetness and sourness. The aftertaste is quite hoppy and bitter.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2011 Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, light brown, fully lasting. Body is
hazy dark brown, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (cocoa powder, caramel, toasted grain), with light notes of chalk, marshmallow, and brown sugar. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Acceptable, but little more. Can hardly even tell it’s a Weissbier, as there isn’t much banana or clove underneath the malt.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2007 Nice aroma and marshmellowy mouthfeel and aroma with a little trace of chocolate and bananas. Falls short of its glorious past.
