3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml flip top bottle at abv 5.2 % bought at YATA in New Town Plaza, Shatin.
Cloudy hazy dark copper brown colour with muddy sediments; Explosive three finger head with lovely, crumpety off-white beige foam which lasts for about 2 minutes; Excellent lacing and fizzy carbonation; Aroma of banana, vanilla, roast nuts, cloves, malt, light pineapple and spices; Light sweet and tart taste of light banana mash, caramel, lightly roasted malt, light cloves and sour citrus and faint herbs; Mid to light body, slick palate; Tartness dominate the associated weizen elements; Hoppiness is also tart-driven citrus, bitterness is near zero. Slightly dry and crisp after taste, very easy to mouth.
Comments: A proper dunkelweiss with malt roastiness shows up more in aroma than in taste. It has very good head, right look and taste. If the aroma has more dimensions, lessen its tartness and put a bit more bitter hops, than this would be a great one. For now, it’s a little more than decent.

Excellent Dunkel! Brought this guy home from Germany, and I wish I would have brought more. Probably my favorite beer I brought back with me. Malty, grain slight brown sugar scent over a dark brown pour with a big frothy head, light tan in color. Medium body with a bubbly fizzy feel. Slight toffee fronted taste, malt, brown sugar, and toasted grain. Yummy.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2012 Dark, hazy brown with an off white/light tan head. It smelled like toasted malt with maybe a little caramel in there. Slighty sweet and not very bitter. Full-bodied beer that feels a little creamy. Not too much carbonation. Seems like a pretty good beer to me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Farblich schön dunkel braun trüb, die Schaumkrone schäumt stark auf, schaut auch stabil aus, hält dann aber doch nur mittelmäßig. Es riecht hefig, dunkelmalzig, röstig. Es ist leicht Cremig auf der Zunge, geschmacklich ist es hefig, dunkelmalzig süßlich. Fazit: Ordentlich!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flip-top half-litre bottle, best before 26 Dec 2010. The fourth bottle of my German tasting evening, 2 July 2010.
Poured into one of my ’Frankiskaner’ Weissbier glasses.
The beer is mid-brown in colour, swurling, murky looking brew, a good deep cream coloured head sat on top.
The smells were of malts, roasted and toasted. A slight smoked ham hint arrived as the beer began to warm in the glass.
The beer was well carbonated, almost too fizzy at first, but it calmed down and was most enjoyable. The flavours within the taste followed the aromas, very pleasant.
