3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown body topped by a dense, off-white head. Nose is mild nougat, taste is bread, hints of caramel. Nice, but a bit more bland and non-descript than my expectations had been, as their regular weizen is really good. A bit overrated in my opinion.

Cloudy, brown color, big white head; banana estery, fruity aroma with bready caramel notes; medium body, quite smooth, not too carbonated, but still crisp mouthfeel; flavor of toasted caramel and banana with bready notes and - though barely notable - spiciness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours hazy golden amber with a creamy off-white head that lasts a little while. Aroma has notes of banana, chocolate, yeast, caramel and spice. Flavour is less fruity, more spicy and a little sweeter, with the chocolate and caramel notes standing out. The body is a bit light with a thin, slightly watery mouthfeel, moderate carbonation and a dry, mildly sweet finish. Easy drinking, this is not a bad dunkel but far from the best.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy reddish brown with a big thick off-white head. Aroma is of lots of sweet fruit (banana and apple, mostly), some musty yeast, and spice. Plus some unpleasantness metallic notes. Flavor is all of that plus some caramel malt and vanilla. Flavor is actually very refreshing; palate is a bit watery; a little short in the back end.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Foxy-cream head over fully hazy orange-amber beer. Banana, jumble of fruity esters, sweet-sour, solvent. Sweet-sour, some wholemeal notes, and lots of fruit, mainly banana. Well-bodied, very (wheat)slick; long-lasting flavours. Nice, if unspectacular Dunkelweizen. Maybe that’s tautology.
