Stark Dark Wheat Appearance: Deep reddish brown, foamy light tan head, but it doesn’t last, cloudy. Aroma: Bubblegum, some spice like clove, fig. Flavour: Licorice or dark fruits, slight bitterness, pumpernickel. Mouthfeel: Lively carbonation front and centre, well balanced, some yeasty herbally dryness in the finish. Overall: Decent dunkelweizen, exceptional by Asian standards!

Daniehac (8) - SINGAPORE - DEC 28, 2015 does not count
Nose: yeasty, vegemite, iron / blood, lemon tart. Pour: frothy, dissipating after 3 min to random small bubbles and a very thin head. Taste: sour, vegemite, espresso that's been left out way too long, gastric juices. Somewhere there's an underlying hint that this is supposed to be a dark beer but you know that something went disastrously wrong in the process. Overall, this is quite terrible. One dimensional, unpleasant and a chore to attempt to finish (I didn't). Marginally better than the brewery's regular Wheat beer, but that really isn't saying much. Back to the drawing board. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I was hoping for great things when I found this in Bali, to add a little variation to the beer drinking rather than Bintang Bintang Bintang. Unfortunately, after a decent looking pour, nice colour, good head the taste was truly horrid, incredibly sour which I can only assume was due to poor handling.

Poured dark amber almost black . Initially large frothy tan head. Light peppery yeasty aroma. Mouthfeel is crisp with carbonation. Malt flavour, clove and banana notes. defiantly better then excpected for indonesian beer standards.

rosenbergh (9678) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2015
330 ml bottle. ±5%. BB 07/2015. From Indonesia. A big thank you to Hellu!
Murky brown colour with a tiny off-white head. Mild spices, mild sourness and mild malt in a mild aroma. The flavour is wheaty malt, raisins, dark fruits, sweetness and mild sour notes. Not in perfect condition I believe.

blackisle (1731) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2015
Bottle 33cl. @Stark’s House Jalan Legian Kuta Bali. Color cloudy deep redbrown, big frothy beige head, dissipates quickly, light lacing; fruity nose, banana, bubble-gum, bit nutty, cloves; taste light sour and sweet, bit of citrus; medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, aftertaste sweet and sour, fruity and spicy notes; somewhat heavier and more complex than the wheat version but slightly less convincing, though altogether another nice surprise from this part of the world...

ALLOVATE (2816) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 16, 2013
From the bottle, purchased in Discovery, and to break up the amount of lager I’d consumed in Bali. It’s faultless to look at once poured. Excited, it produces a good 2 inches of hefty, rocky foam atop a cloudy, fiery chestnut body flowing with fine carbonation. Aroma is slightly fruity, sherryish and leads headstrong towards rum and raisin icecream. Light in body with a dominant roasted and cocoaish malt mid-palate and tannic, malty backend. Dry and dusty, subtly phenolic finish; a hint of pepper, burnt toast, rum balls, twiggy bark. Odd, yet it comes together neatly. Credit where credit is due, it is not too bad a drop!! (33cL, no date stamp, Coco Gourmet, Discovery Centre, Kuta, Bali, Indonesia)
