50cl swingtop, best by 08/07. Hazy reddish caramel with a big, rocky, off white head. Nose is banana, toasty malt, wheat. Flavor is a little like an old dishrag kind of funky, light banana and a toasty quality. Another eh.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy mud brown color, small off-white head. Sour, peppery-wheaty aroma. Wheaty with sour milk flavours, glue-like notes. Solid body, but nothing else - not very fruity, also too little roast or alcohol punch for a good dunkelweizen. Finish has some citric lemony notes.

Pours caramel-brown with a nice frothy head. Bready-spice aroma. Sweetish flavor with spicy finish. A bit metallic on the end though - otherwise would be better.

Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 500 ml flip top bottle. Dark orange-copper pour with a slight khaki colored head. Sweet aroma with some nuttiness and bubblegum. Flavor has a caramelly bent to it with some bubblegum, and ripe bananas. Detect a hint of clove in the finish. Spritzy mouthfeell. Overall decent - just does not shine in any one category.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This flippy top bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that was long lasting and left behind a semi-opaque softly carbonated brown colored body. The aroma was brown malt wheat and caramel malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of brown malt and wheat. An OK brew just nothing special.

Dark brown colored, cloudy appearance. Little yellow head. Yeast, banana, grain and mild spices in aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is not very traditional weisse: crispy palated, dryness, some chocolate and grain in flavor, mild banana there too. Aftertaste has some yeast and banana.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a rich, dark brown with a nice head and lacing. Aroma is coppery banana. Taste is hollow clove. Not much body in the mouthfeel. Like chewing a cheap piece of watered-down clove bubblegum, but without the mouth-numbing effect.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flip top bottle and served in my Aventinus glass: Poured a muddy brown hue with yellowish highlights topped by a huge frothy off-white head and left excellent lace work on the glassware. The nose detected toasted and smoked malting, non-aromatic pipe tobacco, walnut, banana and clove yeasty esters, and other earthy vapors. The taste is much more hefe and less dunkel with a heavy note of banana and acidic sourness over a bready malt and yeast driven base. There is some smoke towards the finish which does help in balance and complexity. The mouth feel is less challenging with a watery dry finish and soft carbonation. A entry level dunkelweizen more than a top example of the genre. Quaffable enough for a ratebeerian try.
