hauxe (264) - Butzbach, GERMANY - APR 24, 2016
Pours dark brown from the bottle with a huge, fluffy head. Lots of evident carbonation. Aroma is a mix of Weizen, banana, dough, and cherry. Taste is sweet, with the roasted caramel malt and fruity notes in tune and complementing each other very nicely. A nice start. The beer is marred by the palate, which seems too light and verges toward being watery. The finish remains sweet but becomes more one dimensional, as if the underpowered palate could sustain the full richness of flavor. Still, this is a decent dark wheat beer, refreshing, and good on its own or with food.

(Flasche) Es hat eine sehr dunkle, braune Farbe, scheint unfiltriert mit einer bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist hefig, leichter grüner Apfel, leichte Röstnote und etwas oxidiert. Der Geschmack ist etwas wässrig, leicht röstig, etwas adstringent und retronasal kommt der grüne Apfel durch. Im Abgang kommt die Hefe durch und im Nachgeschmack bleibt ein samtiges Gefühl auf der Zunge zurück.

I tried this beer before you get here. Even then I did not make notes on taste, smell, appearance and general feel.

McWorta (1289) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 1, 2015
Deep solid red-orange opaque colour with a large frothy lasting off white head. Aromas of wheat, banana, caramel, toffee and some barnyard and hay notes develop. Light lively, bit slick texture with a medium-full body. Bit chewy wheat sweetness with a light bitterness and astringent touch. Medium lasting finish.

Pleasant bananaey and toffee aroma. Very deep red, large doughy persistent tan head. Lots of treacle toffee in the taste. Cleanish for a dunkelweisse, just a bit yeasty. Very serviceable dunkle, probably benefitted from being fresh and local.

Seffle (415) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2014
On tap at Schweinsberg Hotel Lennestadt. Very dark and opaque body with a ruby reflex. Firm beige head. Malty nose with banana and caramell. Very mild, bready taste with very little weissen sourness. A very nice beer indeed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice aroma mix of banana, caramel and spice. Muddy tan appearance with a fluffy head. Taste is sweet fruity caramel with a hint of spice. Puffy body that was well carbonated. This is an okay example of this style.
