3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml flip top bottle: poured into my weizen glass, this beer cascaded upwards but not out of the glass. What first struck me was the color. Kind of a muddy orange with a bit of brown. Full thick light beige head. Not the darker brown dunkelweizens I am used to drinking. Light roasty aroma which is nice with just a hint of banana. The slight roastiness in this distinguishes it from the Hell but not by much. Still a lightly flavored weizen and there are much better ones on the market to compete for your hard earned dollar/Euro.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy, muddy brwon color, huge, off white foamy head. Light sourly aorma, few fruit notes. Flavor is not very rich, few fruity or maltiness. Quite light bodied. Dry, astringent finish. Nice drinkable, refreshing, but not more.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Orangey brown beer with a slight haze - the yeast remains as a lumpy sediment at the bottom. Tall, but collapsing head. Unfortunately not very rich in either aroma or flavours - no real fruit or maltiness. Not bad - just disappointingly bland. 221102

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A cloudy muddy brown coloured beer with a huge off white quite creamy head. The aroma is good, with bananan, toffee, caramel and chocolate. There is more chocolate in the taste and a bit of bruised stewed bananas. A bit odd at first but it smooths out to a good drop towards the end of the half litre.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Okay i have sampled many Hefe dunkles in my day, but this is a good go to beer. While the appearance is your average dunkel, nice head, decent brown. The taste is distinct of malt and light fruit without being overpowering. FOr me this is a little bit on the light side, but a great introduction to this style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nice strong banana/clove aroma. Clear dark tan color with decent light tan head. Light banana/clove color with the merest hint of hops and malt in the finish but decent palate. Lightest dunkelweizen I have ever had. Tastes fine but not really indicative of the style at all.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Swing-top Bottle Conditioned. BBE Jan 2004. Mahogany colour with large head that soon settles. Mouth feel is surprisingly neutral considering the initially large head. Large malty aroma and flavour - sort of banana bread. A pleasant brew, though watery body begins to make it itself felt after a while.
