the former Schierlinger/Thurn & Taxis Roggenbier, now brewed by Paulaner. I prefer it before the Paulaner Dunkelweizen

Bottle. Beautiful reddish beer, with a thin head and superbly balanced flavour. There's blood orange here, along with marzipan and host of others. This is both fresh in taste, and full bodied.

this was my first rye beer and i really liked it - if this ones a lame one according to the rest of you i cant wait to have a good un. very dunkelweizenlike (a plus in my book) but with that honey/tartness combination you get in that heavy sweet dutch ryebread that ive forgotten the name of. nice rich aroma of yeast, honey and herbs. goes well with pistachio nuts. once again apologies for lack of apostrophes - this keyboard wont do em.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle, bought in Germany. Deep copper colour, large beige head. Intense aroma of red fruits, dried fruits and jam / marmalade, also notes of cloves, oak and sherry. Flavour is moderately malty, slightly acidic with some vinous qualities, red fruits, caramel and rye bread in the background. Moderate carbonation, soft mouthfeel, smooth and pleasant to drink. A very nice rye beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The pour is very foamy, with a deep reddish-brown color. There are also some purple highlights. The nose is quite bready and grainy. The taste is really interesting. It really wraps around the tongue with a full and fruity flavor. It's a nice balance with the grainy nose. The finish may be the best part! It's very full with a slight woody taste. Excellent beer!

Bottled. Hazy brown colour, mostly lasting and glass sticking head. Light malty, rye bread aroma, german cookie (Lebkuchen), light yeasty, fruity (dry fruit - banana, apple, raisin), spice (clove, nutmeg). Medium body, short duration, finish aromatic, spicy. Similar to a Dunkel Weizen.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dunklewiezen-ish, in that it has some very banana-ish flavours, with slight hints of craamel and toffee, dry finish, lightly tart, and pretty tasty all round, relatively soft, with some earthy notes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Like a dunkel weissen but not. Interesting. Murky reddish brown beer. Fresh tasting and full bodied. Light yeasty aroma. Bananas, cloves and bubblegum taste. Nice mouthfeel, but perhaps a bit watery at the end. Roasty, bitterish finish. Very nice.
