2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
I was not too impressed by this beer. It clearly refers to the Dunkelweizen but it has not the powerful aroma it’s German ancestors has.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells of wood, cream and prunes, beautifully nut brown with slightly too narrow foam top. Tastes more strong than it is - raisins, sweet vegetable soup, caramel and some wood are associations I get. Rich and complex taste in the neighbourhood of bayers and dunkelweizens; fits well to the recipe. The wheat is more obvious further down the glass.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Color is Cola mixed with Fanta. Aroma: sweet. Honey, hints of apricots, younge cheese aroma from the yeast (big whiff). Taste is a little disappointing: sour, IPA-like (slight), wheaty. Bitter and dry aftertaste, much like Pilsner. Too bitter for this style (which makes the freshness from the hops clash in my opinion).

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
300ml draught at Café De Kletskop in Amsterdam. Lasting, creamy, white head to a hazy apricot coloured body. Sweet and mid-dry aroma of wheaty fruits. Succulent taste of orange, mid-sweet banana and brown malts. Wheat and fruit to the ending. Medium bodied. Foamy in the mouth. Nice, sweet fruity thirst quencher (20.07.2014).
