3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
It is a light and easy to drink summer dunkelweizen, but it is a bit thin for the style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
First of all, bonus point for the cool flip top bottle. Pour big - I mean big loose beige head that almost overflows the glass. Smells fruity - like grape jam on toast. Flavor is a lot drier - More rye toast, the some fruity notes. Maybe a hint of cherry, too. I am kinda drunk...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Pours with an overwhelming head, like a cola. Perhaps this was an old bottle, but flavor was very thin and unimpressive.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark brown-amber, the aroma is of wheat, fruit, and faintly yeasty. The taste is dark fruit and wheat grain. Difficult to pour due to the yeast, this was worth it, a very good weissbier.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy cider brown with a half-inch or coarse-bubbled head. Aroma is sweet and appley, also like cider. Taste is light and mildly tangy, not unlike a watered down spiced cider. Lowish carbonation, but coarse bubbles make it feel like flat soda. $3/16.9oz

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark with nice head and lacing. Dominated by caramel and roasted malt. However, at the palate it’s thin and tastes as though the brew has been watered down. Not filling, easy to drink, needs more body.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Moderate to heavy malt aromas of cookie, nutty and caramel, light to moderate perfume and cooked orange for the hops, light dough for the yeast with hints of raisin, toffee and brown sugar. Head is average size, fizzy, lightly tan with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear medium, brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, a little slick with a soft carbonation. A very nice, candy-like aroma from this Dunkleweizen.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a very hazy brown color with a large off-white frothy head. Aroma has lots of dark fruity with not too many smokey notes. Also wheat. Taste is very smooth and sweet with plumbs and wheat. A good amount of spices as well. Finish is a little light and sweet with malts. Overall not bad. The bottle said schwarze weisse, but it tastes just like a normal Dunkel to me.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a nice, hazy brown color. Big tan head. Lots of banana on the nose. The flavor is very boring. I was hoping for a lot more. Some yeast notes, a touch of wheat, but overall very tame and boring. I won’t buy again.
