as good as the dunkel the yeast charachteristics are excellent and the malt as good i prefer these over many german examples which are travel weary by the time they arrive in the states

Not much head, medium cloudy yellowish color. Not much banana, nice cloves. Refreshing, but the Germans are better.

(BB 10/18/02) Bottled about a week ago. Thin white head. Very hazy, with a good wheat beer carbonation. Balanced for a Victory beer. This beer taste great on a 95 degree day in Baltimore. Yummy. Good fruit.

Very sour and vinegary, maybe I got a bad batch, but I thouroughly disliked this beer. Very surprising its the first Victory beer that I didnt absolutely love.

Disappoitning considering how good their sunSET dunkelweissen is. Smooth and rather bland, flavored with a hint of banana, salt, coriander, and spice. Unfiltered brown with a persistent white head, this beer tried to add some maltiness to the traditional hefeweizen, resulting in a watery concoction that just doesn’t work.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Middle of the road weisse. Cloudy orange/yellow with a fluffy head. Smells like corn. Slightly spicy with some fruitiness and light hops in the aftertaste which makes it slightly harsh.

First the bad news: this beer just doesn’t
look like a classic Bavarian weissbier - its only
slightly cloudy and lacks that giant rocky head.
But if thats the bad news...
Aroma is outstanding: classic clovey and lemony, spicy.
Flavor is similar: more cloves and lemons, mildly sweet, clean
background bitterness keeps it balanced . No bananaish
flavors that I could tell, but thats alright, I enjoyed it
anyway. In the end, tangy and quite refreshing.
