Foam is persistent and very rich. The aroma is a little coriander and banana with caramel malt. The taste is slightly roasted malt with flavors of caramel, banana and some chocolate which I can not quite decide as light or dark, perhaps almost a mixture of both. I also sense vanilla. I can also taste a little bit orange peel in flavor with a little nondescript spices and a slightly roasted malt character who is a bit like burnt sugar. Now I know that German brewers would banish added sugar or other sugar products in their beer, so it’s probably generous use of light roasted wheat malt I can taste. Very well balanced bitterness gives a final result for a rich and tasty dark wheat beer.

Not a real dark dunkel, more like an amber weiss. This is not taking anything away from it. It has the spicy banana clove flavor of the style and just enough dark wheat malt to balance everything perfectly. Nice aroma, Super nice mouth feel. No need for a lemon slice here but if you want to it certainly doesn’t change this weissbier. A truly fine wheat beer!

Cybercat (3984) - Georgia, USA - APR 25, 2015
Pours dark, opaque honey golden with a thick pale buff head. Malty aroma has a fruity overtone of banana and pear plus a bready hint. Flavor has wheaty, banana, malty and pear notes. Texture is quite firm, if not very fizzy. A truly regal beer.

beerbastard (773) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2015
500ml bottle. pours cloudy lite brown, with lasting head. Malty brown sugar and clove and banana nose. Roasty, banana clove flavors. Overall not as rich and strong flavored as I would prefer. Almost a diluted flavor profile. Maybe more delicate.

Shorty at Yard House - Cincinnati, labeled Konig Ludwig Weissbier Dunkel. Pours a hazy dark orange color with a small off-white head. Notes of banana, wheat, caramel, brown sugar, clove, toast, earth, and straw. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, wheaty, mildly spiced mouthfeel. Solid dunkelweizen.
