Although some may consider this a dunkleweiss, Unertl is actually an original style weissbier, which is a little darker than a hellesweizen and not as chocolatey as a dunkel. Natural, local spring water forms the base for a 70 percent malted wheat grist bill, well above a typical weiss concentration. A warmer temperature, top fermentation takes place in traditional, open containers using a special flocculent yeast strain developed by the family, and a small percentage of chocolate malt gives this original its deep amber color. Natural yeast sediment forms in the container due to bottle or cask conditioning, which can sometimes be a little chunky. Full, yet soft, with a rounded body, you’ll find notes of almond, soft banana, and clove. The head is creamy and generous with substantial mouth-feel. The richness of the yeast is evidenced by a silky glass cling and the finish is sweet and clean. In fact, the glass is absolutely filthy with yeast by the time you’re done--very rich in vitamin B12 and protein. Complex and subtle, it’s not only refreshing but has body enough that it never becomes too sweet. This beer is quite simply one of the finest in the world of any variety. While I first sampled this beer in Germany nearly 15 years ago, I’m thrilled that it’s recently become available in the U.S. I’ve also noted that several reviewers have this beer confused with Unertl Muhldorf, which is a completely separate brewery and product.

SinH4 (1398) - Garching, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2015
Quite a dark brown color with a creamy white head. Aroma is wheaty, earthy, maybe hints of bananas (or what you associate with a Hefeweizen), strawberries. Taste is earthy, spicy, bananas, some bubblegum, a bit nutty, refreshing finish. Not as malt-forward as the color indicates. A daring Weizen, but a very good one. Not too complex or interesting, but just good. And for this ABV, chapeau!

Dark brown/orange in colour, murky with hardly any head. Fizzy in the glass, nose is slightly smoky baked beans. Smooth taste and a little wheaty.

szeli (130) - GERMANY - AUG 28, 2015
Sehr dunkles Weizen mit schöner beiger Schaumkrone. Im Aroma erdig, karamellig, gar keine Banane. Im Geschmack überraschend trocken, Nelke, Erde. Ziemlich herb für ein Weizen.

kajser27 (639) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 21, 2015
Brown colored, darker than most weizen, cloudy, sediment floaters, moderate offwhite head, not very lasting. Aroma is quite yeasty, bit acidic, banana bready and less cloves. Taste is moderate sweet wheat, bread, bit of toast and caramel, moderate fruity banana and less clove notes, bit acidic much less than in the aroma. Medium+ bodied, thick, medium+ carbonation.

WillemsUrenkel (1077) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2015
0,5 l bottle. Expected a cloudy orange in the glass. Surprisingly I see a murky copper with a two finger head. Low citrus and yeast on the nose. Taste starts more fresh sweet berriefruity, low yeasty. Malt in the second row. Little bit like cherry cola. Sorry ... Decent bitterness, fruity dry aftertaste. Not a typical Hefeweizen, but not bad.

MikeKeller (917) - Kemi, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle from Gourmondo. Hazy brown beer with a dissapearing bubbly head. Lots of ripe bananas with rye and dry after taste. Very unusual hefeweizen (or should this be dunkelweizen) which I didn’t enjoy so much.
