MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2007
A Sim rate (Bottle at Ealing B.F.): Amber colour with a nice head. Aroma of malt caramel and metal. Flavour is also malty and metallic with raisin and chocolate. It’s more bock than dunkel. Thin palate.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - JUN 14, 2007
Pretty decent dunkel hefeweizen. A bit on the sour side, some banana. Not too roasted for a dunkel, but weizens seldom are. A bit watery mouthfeel for a weizen.

bierkoning (9829) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2007
Bottle. Clove, banana and caramel in the aroma. Fruity, caramelly flavor with mandarin and banana. Traubenzucker. Thin. Decent thirst quencher.

jonas (5477) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2007
Bottle. Hazy chestnut, huge rocky golden foam. Light citric and minerally yeasty nose. Claylike notes, quite a bit of chocolate, heather, somewhat salty. medium body, surprisingly mellow mouthfeel for a Weissbier. Roasted, light fruity (mango) aftertaste. I am pleasantly suprised - there is far between the interresting Dunkelweizen out there.

skortila (4348) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2007
Aroma of wheats, some yeast, caramel malts, orange and nuts. Hazy, brown coloured with a perfect, lasting, off-white lace. Taste is sweet, just a bit sour, yeasty, caramel malty, nutty. Very refreshing. Very decent palate and quite well balanced. This certainly is one of the better dunkelweizens I had.

larsga (5965) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2006
Big light brown head shrinks quickly. Muddy dark brown body. Wheaty, peppery, chocolatey aroma with yeast notes. A bit musty and unbalanced. Sweet, chocolatey taste with wheaty, grainy notes and carbonation in the mouth. Dry aftertaste. Somewhat watery. Quite good. (0.5l bottle bought at Finnish Alko.)

spporras (259) - FINLAND - JUL 11, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2007 (Bottle BB 12/12/07) Roasted malty, fruity, caramel and wheaty aroma. Dark brown yellow colour, murky (sedimentation) and average size, light brownish, slightly lasting head with basically no lacing. Roasted malty, banana, citrus, berry-like and acidic flavour. Fizzy carbonated, sticky and light to medium-bodied palate. Not a typical Dunkel Hefeweizen but not a bad brew either. 27/05/07 (original rating was 6/4/7/4/14)

Miksu (4830) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2006
Bottle. Copper brown color, very heavily carbonated. Spicy phenols, dark toasted munchener malt, hay and smoke in the aroma. Medium bodied but still quite dry. Bready, malty and lightly roasted flavor with spicy phenols and some grassiness. Dry finish with rye bread and phenols. Reminds kotikalja, a traditional finnish rye based table beer.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2006
Dark brown colored, strongly hazy appearance. Medium sized vanishing yellow head. Interesting aroma: toffee, sweetness, fruits, smoke, mild banana and chocolate too. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is slight disappointment after fine aroma: yeast, toffee, mild smoke, somehow watery palate. Ending is mildly dry, maybe lacks some carbonation.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2006
Bottle.
Huh. Didn’t realize this was a hefedunkel until I poured it. Oh well, I don’t mind.
Cloudy brown, with a huge, bubbly off-white head.
Very dry, coffeelike roasted malt aroma with typical hefeweizen yeast and wheat character in the background. Hint of smoky tar.
Flavor is roasted malt, wheat and yeast. A bit of sweet fruit. Smoke and tar here too, as well as in the aftertaste, hiding behind the malt. A bit sahti-like, as others have already pointed out.
Medium body, slightly gassy. Oily mouthfeel. First truly smoky hefe I’ve tasted. Interesting.
