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. Serving type: bottle

weihenweizen (1608) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Refrigerated brown 0.5 L bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours slightly hazy amber with small beige head. Aroma is caramel/banana, medium body, well carbonated, and good small bubble lacing. Taste is caramel, banana, some bread, and some clove. My first pretty good amberweizen?

massingasetta (150) - München, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2014
Ein braunes Weißbier aus dem Hause Unertl. Dieses obergäriges Getränk riecht imposant nach Hefe und leicht nach Süsse, Karamell und eine kleine Note von etwas erdigen/dörrigen. Antrunk ist frisch und recht herb im Vergleich zu Geschmack. Das Bier ist schwer aber nicht zu schwer. Es ist recht trocken - wenn es das bei Bier und vor allem Weizen, gibt. Körper und Abgang sind zwar einheitlich. irgendwie erwartet man noch mehr im Abgang von diesem erdigen Weizen. Fazit: Gutes interessantes Weizen welches Schneider im braunen nicht dunklen Weizen-Sektor nahe kommt.

Zarkam (369) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2014
500ml bottle from Gourmondo.de, hazy light brown colour, small fizzy mostly lasting white head, fair lacing. Heavily malty aroma dominated by banana and cloves with some hints of nuts and hay, some floral hops and a bit of dough. Taste is initially sweetish but balanced with a hint of acidity, turning into a moderately bitter finish with an acetic feel and a hint of sourness. Medium body, lively carbonation, oily mouthfeel. A bit above average weizen but nothing insanely interesting, pleasantly refreshing and with some character anyway.

Beerhunter111 (6776) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes orangegelbes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, malzig fruchtig. Geschmack hefig, fruchtig, leicht bananig, etwas würzig.

BeerViking (2292) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle bought in Germany, poured very lively - a bit of a gusher - initially clear brown with a big off-white head, then clouding with the sediment. Nose is banana and toffee with smoky hints. Palate is rich, with touches of smoke, wine and bread, plus caramel and fruit notes, dryish yet turning sweet in the finish.

Serving: Draft. It pours a hazy, light brown with a hint of gold. Small white head. Light banana notes in the nose. Light wheat and banana notes in the flavor with a hint of maltiness. Fairly crisp finish. Decent.

Luoto (22) - FINLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Not the clearest of beers which looks like poor home brew fortunately it made up for things in taste. No banana taste but slightly sweet whilst retaining a pleasant buttery and bittery taste. I could drink this again if the first bottle is a good indication. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
