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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear golden brown with a fairly thick pale tan head that hangs around for a little. Aroma is malty with a strong overtone of fruit, mainly apple, and a hint of spice. Flavor is malty and a little fruity, not very well rounded but still acceptable. Texture is quite fizzy, just a bit on the watery side, but it leaves behind a decent tingle. Overall, not too shabby.

One of those fancy recappable bottles. Very heavy sudsy foam on the pour, stayed present quite a while. Thick sudsy residue left. Hazy amber, very attractive. Nose is subtle, yeasty, bubblegum, clove. Palate is full for the style, plenty of body, tastes of banana and tea. Dry. Very good.
