"straight up not as good as the hefe. tries to wear two hats, and does so reasonably well, but is not a great schwarz or hefe. light bodied, nice smoke aroma and flavor, roasted malt, but again, lighter on the palate, and the banana/clove/bubblegum flavor that was the hefe seems to be slightly obscured here. decent, but the hefe was better."

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks like a cola. Aroma is pleasant smokey sweet banana. Taste is a watered down version of the aroma. Not bad. Not something I would go out of my way for.

Poured a very nice cola colour with a fluffy head that faded quickly. Very smooth in the mouth with mild roasted malt.

Tasty and pleasing example of the style. Dark brown pour with lots of tan head. Nice aromas. Little bit of banana in the first sip, molasses and sweet malts. Really nice weissbier. Would drink it again.

Bottle at Bierhof Athens, June 2014.
Dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma and taste of light banana, yeast, chocolate and some light coffee. An interesting beer that was fairly bitter in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
poured from a flip-top bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear very dark brown, with a large, rocky light tan head. Head persists and leaves good lacing. Nose is dark malt, and the taste is dark malt up front, with a creamy mouth feel and slightly bitter finish. A typical dark wheat, and a well-executed one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Meh. An OK beer. Aroma was alright. Typical clove and banana smell with a nice malty note. Not very strong but there. Pour was a nice deep dark brown/near black with a one finger tan head. Taste was OK. Nice roasted malt flavor dominates the typical hefe favors but they are there. The big downfall of this beer was the light carbonation. i expect a German wheat beer to have strong carbonation and this was very light. Not flat, but close. Decent session beer

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a larger flip top bottle, larger by american 12 oz standards. Smell is mild malt. first taste is laid back mild dark beer thing. Look is very nice appealing dark beer thing happening. $4 at vintage for about a half liter. In the glass this stuff bubbles all over, almost over the top of my double 12 oz clear heavy mug. Mild carbonation, could use more. Chocolate aroma punches thru. Yes, a big rocky choco foamy head. Aroma is metallic at times. Yes, a continuous mild flavorful event without much ill attribute. Nicely reserved. Finish is all of the above, good overall mild dark beer experience. Now I can see why this is the original. I like this stuff, even if it is dull at times, it leaves no surpizes and I don’t care for big rude surprises, heheh. So there you have it, a decent friendly dark beer with no ill manners.
