2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught, one-third pint. It is not a pretty sight, the body content looks like muddy water. The aroma is much more inviting with a discreet smell of berries and late fruits. Juicy malts in flavour with vanilla sweetness partial retarded by bitter spices. Medium bodied (GBBF, 04.08.2009).

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hideous murky greyish brown with an off white head, so ugly in fact that it scores a rare 1 for appearance. Aroma is by contrast a delightful sweet clovey banana, white the taste is malty with wheatiness and hazelnut. Slight dryness. A very nice beer if you drink it in the dark.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, bought @ Ambrosetti, Berlin.
Pours muddy orange-brown with a medium, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has sweet caramel, some banana, a bit citric, some slight rye. Low carbonation for a hefe, a tad watery perhaps. Flavour is sweet, some chocolate, a bit of banana, rye bread and yeast. Flavour-wise okay.

Bottled (Beerangel, BB 08/2009).
Murky brown-amber color, small beige head. Banana estery nose with rye bready and yeasty notes. Quite watery balate. Light sweet banana flavor with some yeast and bread. Dryish, watery aftertaste. Very simple, sweet dunkelweizen which feels more like a normal hefeweizen.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Mossy-brownish beer with orange highlights under a smaller dark-cream head. Banana and very meaty, nearly cured-meat aroma’s. Still pretty fruity, however; Fruity taste, but less outspoken than the Helles; more meatesters, and more outspoken nutmeg notes, even a bit leafy. Well-filled (yeast) rather than well-bodied. Good, if not outstanding Dunkles Weizen.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Forced draught at the GBBF 2008. Murky brown opaque colour, big head. Very nice aroma of malts, lemons, banana and cloves. Same elements in the flavour, this is the most lemony dunkelweizen I’ve had. Good stuff.
