Ungstrup (29134) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2005
An unclear brown beer with a light brown head. The aroma is sweet wheat combined with notes of roasted bread. The flavor is also sweet wheaty, but also with notes of malt, and caramel, as well as a roasted end. A good wheat beer.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2009
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of TheCheeseMan. Pours a hazy and opaque dark brown with and orange hue and an off-white head. Aroma dominated by roasted malts and a whiff of banana and yeast. Medium body, a little roast and very little banana and yeast. Dry finish. Pleasant alright but very far from style - almost closer to a Brown Ale. 130909

argo0 (11349) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 10, 2005
(12oz bottle) I was curious when drinking this whether it was considered a dunkelweizen or a schwarzbier -- glad to see RB agrees with my senses. Cola brown body with beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, wheat, banana, light cinnamon. Taste is moderately sweet, wheat, banana, caramel, faint cinnamon. Creamy medium body. No complaints, but I would take Solstice over this any day.
