Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2009
At brewpub. Opaque dark brown with beige head. Rich chocolate-banana aromas with an aromatic herb in here too, not dissimilar to basil or mint. Good carbonation level. Has a sweet-sour thing. Chocolate for sure. Nice dry finish. Cocoa and very spicy accents, including coriander. A very drinkable dunkelweizen.

Quack-Duck (9120) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2013
bottle from mein-biershop. Hazy deep brown, creamy beige head. Chocolate, caramel, coffee and dried fruit, full-bodied and slightly yeasty. A dark delight.

I guess the schwartz moniker was explained as I poured this out to find that it was indeed quite black. Very nicely done weissbier with glorious head, as full a body as can be expected for a wheat, and loads of flavor. If you could imagine an Aventinus with the bock extracted you would be getting very close. Most difficult thing about it is that it's from a tiny place, was hand carried to me and unless I can transport myself there by magic I won't be having another for a long time.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2011
Bottled (from mein-biershop.de). Deep ambery brown colour, huge slightly off-white foamy head. Aroma is roasted malts, some slight toffee, wheat, mild fruityness as well as some slight caramel and mild chocolaty notes. Flavour is wheat, caramel, some mild toast and chocolaty notes. A bit unbalanced and harsh when cold, but after it’s been in the glass for a while and warms up it gets quite mellow and pleasantly balanced. Rating score given for when warmer.

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2012
(bottle) Hazy, dark brown colour with a beige and tall foamy head. Moderately sweet blueberry aroma with wheaty and delicately caramely and leathery notes. Slightly sweet, sour and bitter-tart flavour, medium to light bodied with a spritzy carbonation. Wheat-malty, slightly toasted and leathery taste with berry-fruits; slightly sour-fruity finish with hints of caramel, chocolate and delicately spicy notes in the aftertaste. Glück auf, Glück auf, the Steiger cometh! 24.XII.11

pivnizub (10139) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2011
Bottle: Deep chestnut-amber coloured, big, stable, capuccino-like head; moderate sweetish chocolatey and caramelly nose, dried fruits and wheat underneath; moderate sweet-sourish flavour; a slight acidity is detectable in the soft sweet caramelly-fruity finish. Very good Dunkelweizen…

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2013
It’s unclear brown-black with a red hue and a huge head. The aroma has notes of yeast, roasted malt, caramel and fruit. The sweet flavor has notes of yeast, licorice, caramel, fruit, and the finish is slightly dry with a hint of licorice and yeast. A very pleasant and different dunkel Weizen.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2009
Dark brown. Cloudy, big head. Aroma of banana and chocolate. Banana front, then chocolate. Gets almost burnt before finishing relatively sweet. Overall, it has that hefe dichotomy of being both light and heavy.

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2011
Bottled 500ml (Tuulensuu, BB 02/2012)
Black, almost opaque color, small steady beige head. Wheaty, caramelly, toasted nose, Medium-bodied. Banana, caramel, light toasty note. Interesting. Not a real dunkelweizen, but black-coloured weizen. But good.
