Dark temptation! Pfungstädter Justus Weizen Hefe Dunkel is a dark and cloudy unfiltered German Dark Wheat Beer. Fresh, fruity taste combined with roasted malt aroma and an unforgettable effervescent mouthfeel. There is not much more when the summer sun sets. Make sure to use the proper glassware to enjoy this one.

500ml green bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Cloudy hazy straw brown colour with a ring of yeast sediments; Explosive four finger head with crumpety off-white foam which lasts for 5 minutes; Very good sticky lacing with quite fizzy carbonation; Fragrant aroma of fair dark malt, with light roastyness, wheat, tartness, banana, dark fruits, light vanilla, cocoa powder , sugar, cloves, cinnamon, spices, marshmallows, strong yeast, light lemon and thin grass; Light sweet taste of light dark malt, with light roastyness, very light metallic, very light banana, wheat, light tartness, light vanilla, soda, strong molasses, earth, light cinnamon, soggy dark bread, strong yeast, light lemon, very light bitter hops and thin grass; Mid to light body. Quite slick and creamy palate; Mouth feel is good dark maltyness in a quite thick background. Wheatyness is fair with light tartness. Banana ester is very light, sweetness is quite strong in the middle. Quite spicy and earthy bready yeast. Moderate sweetness, clove and phenol iis moderate. Low lemon to round. Alright… Hoppiness is cinnamon, light lemon and light grass in nose and taste; Bitterness is low for an abrupt, very low-astringent sweet and dark malty finish; Quite dry after taste. Smooth and easy to mouth.

Comments: Like its Hefe Hell brother, this Dunkelweiss has really impressive looks, creamy feel, and fun to sniff cocoa and marshmallows to hide its weak roastyness. Yet the rather brand taste renders it another “one of the crowds". Drinkable no doubt, but it’s all thunders with little rain.

erickok (4467) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2014
Extremely foamy, brown body. Overripe banana, toast, simple appeal. Not very dark at all and that’s a shame. Soft bitter taste, not rich. Is okay, better because of the roasted malts but still poor. (50cl bottle from V&B Tours)

Thanks to Erzengel for that one! Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass dark brown, nice head. Starts mild-malty, not too roasty, fine yeasty with fruity hints of plum. Finish a bit earthy-malty. Nice!
