4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml swingtop bottle, will soon be available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.4%. Dark brown colour, huge beige head. Lovely strong aroma of banana, cloves, mildly roasted malts and rye bread, a hint of chocolate. Bready flavour with mildly roasted malts and chocolate again, some cloves and banana in the background. Not too sweet. Low on hops, as normal for the style, but the roasted malts make the finish acceptable. Beautifully balanced, a very fine Dunkelweizen.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked this bottle up on a whim, and I’m glad I did! Very pleasant and drinkable wheat variety. Malt compliments the wheat very nicely. - smooth -top notes toasty - highly carbonated -

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Opaque black-brown with an over-active head at the beginning, swirls of lace. I can’t tell if my bottle is old, or if it is the expected flavor, but after a typical toasted caramel onset, the flavor takes on a yeasty sourness that doesn’t complement it at all. Drinkable, but not for me.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Looks nice, the color is very dark, nearly black, and the head large and frothy. The head also lasts long. Aroma has maltiness, mostly dark malts, and even a little roasty notes. Some typical fruity and yeasty notes appear but not very much. The taste is malty and a little roasty with fruity notes. Palate is light; the carbonation somewhat lively. Overall, a much darker beer than a typical dunkelweizen, both in color and in taste. Still very drinkable but lacks character.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Das dunkelste HW, das ich kenne. Hefig und röstmalzig im Aroma. Im Antrunk dann hefig-malzig mit Röstmalznoten von Kaffee und Toffee; keine Fruchtaromen. Der Abgang ist würzig, ohne beißend zu sein. Ungewöhnliches HW, das aber zu gefallen weiß!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The colour here is dark brown, almost black, head is medium height and frothy. Nose has banana and some caramel. Flavours are somewhat complex, it’s mostly sweet and a nice mild bitterness surfaces in the finish.
A tasty beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,5l bottle from Sörspecialista, Budapest. Beautiful, cloudy, dark brown color ith medium, light brown head. Classic hefeweizen odor with some cocoa flavour. The simple banana weizen aroma is supplement with a special chokolate, cocoa and coffee flavour. Yeasty and grainy. Dry, a bit sour taste. Medium body, creamy texture and lively carbonation. Perky coffee and cocoa finish. It’s an interesting beer. It’s like a mixture of a stout and a hefeweizen. I think, it’s a good idea to combine the yeasty, banana flavour with the chocolate malt.
