JorgeLee (1067) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle from Kris Wines. A brown-orange colour, with a dense head and high carbonation from the bottle, definitely looks the part. Aroma is yeasty and wheaty. Dunkelweizen is quite an ephemeral style, at its best (especially in dunkelweizenbock form) it can be one of the most complex beers imaginable, but often the dark malt seems to dampen some of the wheat character without really imposing its own malty footprint. This was slightly the case with this one, which came out quite yeasty, smooth drinking but perhaps not the more full flavoured or complex beer out there.

inbirraveritas (1196) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 31, 2012
Bottled. Pours an unclear orange brown body with a stabile whipped creamy off-white head on its top. Smell of fermented bananas. Refreshing aroma ruled by citrusses escorted by bananas, butterscotch and wheat. Fizzy mouthfeel. Tart and dry finish with toasted malts and spices. Tart aftertaste. Nice brew.

Abio (1519) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JUL 20, 2012
Orange-amber coloured beer, a medium sized head that should hold some longer, just a lace stays. A malty beer, with a good amount of weat, some tea-like, slightly spiced and caramel with dark fruits gets trough. A bit watery at the start, but pretty decent at the aftertaste.

stevoj (1702) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Poured into weizen glass, thick sustained fluffy head. Orange copper color with more than ample carbonation. Sharp, fruity taste with no bitterness. Tastes more like a weizen than a dunkel....small amount of sediment at the bottom of the bottle, but i "swished" it german style and poured into the glass. A good example of true Bavarian weizen...

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Bottle @ Mega Bavarian Beer Tasting in Schlitz. Cloudy, dark orange/brown appearance with an off white head. Somewhat spicy, caramel, light nutmeg, quite toasty malty, light banana aroma. Toasty, rich caramel, light toffee, banana, a bit char flavor. Pretty nice.

[500ml bottle, the Ventoux, Edinburgh][as König Ludwig Weissbier Dunkel] Pours a deep muddy brown, with a slightly off-white head. Chocolate malt on the nose, along with the sweet, bready banana. Similar flavours. Not too shabby [04052012]
