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.

[backlog] 07-09-15 / bottle at home. Nice weizen. Good yeast strains, some banana, dried fruit, well carbonated. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 3.75/5

bosta (226) - SLOVENIA - AUG 10, 2016
0,5l bottle. Pours hazy light brown color, and an off-white head. Sour and yeasty aroma. Sour flavor with wheat and some notes of banana. Very sour for a weissbier. Could be that the botte was spoiled.

Pours brown from the bottle with a big, fluffy head that is soon gone. Cloudy. Looks like muddy water and I would call this surprisingly dark for a beer that is classified as a Weizen and not a dunkles Weizen. Aroma is weakly of sweet malt and yeasty with little in the way of the usual banana fruitiness. Taste follows in this direction - yeasty, nutty, with a rich undertone of caramel malts. Banana is there too, but it doesn’t jump out at you. Finish is dry, malty, lightly sour. Finishing the bottle left me wanting the next one, which is always a good sign. In sum a decent and creative dunkles Weizen, with the roasted and caramel notes playing the leading role. Good stuff.

HighH2O (65) - - APR 23, 2016
Bottle in Stuttgart. Pours medium dark orange, big head, typical weißbier aroma. Bottle does not indicate that is is a Dunkel but it is close. Good brew, too bad I only had one bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fast wie Colaweizen im Glas, malzig in Nase und Trunk, kernig, hintenweg leicht bittersüß. Lecker!
