3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle (One PInt Pub, Helsinki, AugustFest2010)
6 Roasty at first, but also a little earthy aroma; also a touch of fleshy fruit esters.
4 Murky red, small bready head
7 Fairly burnt caramel component, otherwise quite simple fruity esters over a medium roast malt body. Some light bitter hint.
4 Smooth palate, pleasant carbonation. Quite refreshing, not as sweet as many a dunkelweisse, which is nice.
13 Went down really well, no sludginess which sometimes afflicts dunkel weisses, and the sweetness is kept in check. Good one.

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.

3.3 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.

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.

3.5 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.
