Bottle. Murky dark amber colour with rather creamy off-white head of medium duration. Roated malt and dried fruits in the aroma. Slightly sweet malt and some yeast in the flavor. Average finish with a little fruit-sweetness. Not one of the best dunkelweizen.

Vom fass @ Frankfurt International Airport, Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany (July 2006).
Last Mercedes Benz ’E’ class taxi my wife and I would take, or see, and the last beer I would try before leaving sehr schön Deutschland for home. It came in its own tall glass, enthralled with charging effervescence, a tawny, opaque, caramel coloured elixir toppled on by a very excited, ever expanding head of fluff that did its best to escape. Conversation beyond the beer turned to a lovely lass from Sydney about to head to Lebanon to see her family. The beer now background, it smelt of soggy chocolate biscuits entwined with cloves, used band-aids and fresh, ripe bananas. Prickly, from the bubbles, it pierced the nostrils last thought. Tasted of carbonic acid, too fizzy chilled and fresh, some conversation later it got better. A little doughy, cookie dough and tangy wheat, a lemony sour, tangy backdrop as it hurtles down the sides, the subtle, clappy swallow has the ripe banana, subtle bubblegum mix of a good hefe-weiss with a flowing biscuity swallow that lasts and works. It holds just a light edge of woody reserve to make each mouthful after the first a little better, a little more enticing. Lost in converse I must say that I fell away while tasting this which made it more pleasurable. A sessionable, simple Dunkel weiss that ranked up with pub greats. Good with the mind off!!!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It is a superior Lager, does not have doubt… Color dark amber, dense and persistent cream. Very good combination between the Weiss, of wheat, and the Dunkel, of toasted malt. And, in the palate, the impression is exactly this. The characteristic fruit one of the Weiss is broken up perfectly of the taste of toasted malt of the Dunkel. Well interesting, it deserves to be appreciated....................................... É uma Lager superior, não há dúvida...
Cor âmbar escuro, creme denso e persistente.
Combinação muito boa entre a Weiss, de trigo, e a Dunkel, de malte torrado. E, no paladar, a impressão é justamente essa. O frutado característico das Weiss separa-se perfeitamente do gosto de malte torrado da Dunkel.
Bem interessante, merece ser apreciada.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy orange/amber colour with a bigt creamy off-white head leaving a good lacing. Good wheat aroma, sweet with roasted malts. The flavour is sweet and yeasty, fruity banana, a good roasty maltiness, slightly smoky. A bit too sweet for my taste buds but a good dark wheat brew.

Ótima cerveja escura de trigo. Concorrente direto da cerveja Erdinger, a Paulander não fica atrás em nada. coloração caramelo escura, espuma encorpada e sempre presente, um leve sabor adocicado, sem grande presença. Cerveja encopada, gostosa de beber.

I like dunkels but this was a bit below quality. brown and slightly hazy and fairly flat. Quite powerful wheat presence which is probably what put me off.Not one I would try again,

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big, solid, lasting beige head. Nearly translucent brown Mouth-watering aroma of quality yeast and malt. Beer is lighter than expected, even for a hefe, a little watery even. Flavors are not too complex. Malt, a little sweet caramel, some bananna. Not a bad beer, but it seems to be lacking in character compared to other dunkelweizens I have tried.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased in Germany. 500ml bottle with a 02.07 best by date on it.
Pours a very cloudy dark brown with some hints of amber. The head is two fingers tall, and fades slowly to a to thick cap, leaving behind a solid sheet of foam in the glass.
Smell; this has a solid wheat aroma, with a little clove and bananas. There’s a very nice caramel malt presence as well. Pretty much what I would expect in a Dunkel Weizen, but not really outstanding.
Taste; bananas and cloves are present in the flavor along with the wheat and caramel malts. This follows the aroma, but with a hint of bubblegum, and the other flavors are a bit more pronounced than the aroma was.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a very smooth carbonation, and the drinkability is really good. I would have no problem enjoying more than one of these in a night.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2007 <50cl bottle on Egmont>
Dark shady amber/brown appearance with a long lasting white/tan head. Notes of roasted malt and floral lime hobs. The balance betwenn malt, hobs and wheat is well done, and the lively carbonation works well in this beer. Overall really enjoyable!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Muddy brown with a tone towards orange. Little creamy head that stays all the way through the hefe glass. Aroma i sweet with some roasted tones, some oranges, lots of bananas. Taste as well is fine - one of the best hefe dunkels.
