2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle in Germany. Chestnut light hazy color with an excellent creamy brown mostly lasting head. Aroma of yeast over ripe banana and sweet malts. Taste begins a bit on the sour side but gets better as you drink it. Nice palate but the beer lacks both character and taste for a Dunkelhefe. Not bad but not really good either.

Enjoyed at a misc bar in Heilbronn, DE while dining with co-workers. Overall I wasn’t too impressed with this one, tasted kind of syrupy and light. There are definitely better dunkels in the region.

Bottle. Pours a muddy reddy brown colour with a slightly off white head. Aroma is yeast, wheatiness, a bit of lemon. Light body, a bit thin, medium carbonation. It's yeast, wheat, lemon with a slight undercurrent of dark fruit and caramel. OK.

This was a pretty solid dunkel, though nothing incredibly unique. It overshadows its lighter cousin as its less watery with a fuller malt base. Tried with Brandon and Harm in Munich in 2013.

(Flasche) Es hat eine braune Farbe mit einem robinroten Einstich, es ist unfiltriert mit einer bräunlichgelben Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist malzig, wie Cranberry und etwas süßlich. Der Geschmack ist eher leicht, samtig, leicht malzig, retronasal wieder die Cranberry. Der Abgang ist leicht adstringent. Karbonisierung ist ok.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with McTapps and bough in a real,- store in Dettingen. Starts off quite creamy with a nice medium brown and cloudy look. Aromas of some sweets, caramel and cereal in the start. Becomes dull and metallic after half of it. Drinkable one but not in the near of rocket science. Bit below average.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Deep brown colour with steady creamy head and medium to smooth body. Nose of malty yeast. Taste of yeast, fruit salad, nuts, malt and dark bread. Easy to drink but just too yeasty and dull. Hints of basement and leaves. Very boring and so typical.

Big bottle brought home from Germany. Not as good as the Lohrer Dunkel I also brought home, but this Sanwald is a fine brew. Wheat and toffee scent. Big fluffy head of a hazy dark caramel. Med/light body with a silky feel. Veggie, wheat, and toffee taste. Delicious.
