3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours cloudy brown with ample frothy tan head. Smells roasty and yeasty, kind of like burnt toast. Very malty taste with some yeast. Kind of reminds me of coffee, which is strange because I don’t like coffee but I like this. Smooth palate; maybe a little watery. Medium finish. Pretty good dunkleweizen.

I usually like dunkel’s better than their sister weissens but this one doesn’t shine. There is some good dark malt present, but it has little to no bitterness to balance on. Still looks great and hits the spot.

Bottle Swing-top: Poured a caramel brown with a off white tannish large fluffy head. The aroma has that dark caramel malt but is overwhelmed by the bread like yeast of a weizen. Nice sweet caramel and malt taste with a slight bitter bite.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 500ml flip top. This beer poured nice and caramel colored, with beautiful banana and clove aromas and a wonderful smooth head. What I love about dunkel weizens is the hint of caramel that the good ones add to the typical banana/clove esters and the smooth wheat mouthfeel and this one does not disappoint. Being in the US, perhaps I am deprived, but this is simply one of the best dunkel weizens I have had the privilege of consuming.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge dirty beige slowly collapsing head over fully hazy (swingtop closing badly) mossy-brown beer. Wood, bananaester & solvent, warm light-roasted malts. Hints at lactic acid & rotting citrusfruit. Sweet, bready, again woody notes in the taste. Citruspeel, if discreet, and a slight wry-ish spicy finish. More banana, restrained wheat but no real acidity. Medium bodied at best, well-carbonated MF, but a bit thinnish in the finish. Oh, how memory and changes in flavourperception play strange tricks upon us. This very beer drew me, near 20 years ago into German Weizens, especially Dunkels , and made me drive miles out of the way, to get it on our festival. Now it is just another Dunkelweizen - neither really boring, neither really exceptional.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(swing top bottle) Cloudy, amber colour with a huge and persistent off-white foamy head. Sweet and sourish, almost tart fruity (citrus, green banana) aroma, slightly yeasty with a moderate wheat-character, slightly toasted on a clovy background. Sour-sweet flavour, light bodied with a lively carbonation. Toasty, moderately wheaty taste with citrus-fruity accents; light-sweet, sourish, slightly tart finish with light but rounded notes of caramel in the aftertaste. Works for me.
