2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This beer pours a brown color with a nice, thick head and it leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma is that of malts, with some fruit and caramel as well. The flavor wasn't very enjoyable, in my opinion. There was something slightly skunky about it - which I've found rare in darker beers. The flavor was a mixture of the malts and the caramel, but I didn't find much of the fruit that was in the aroma. Again, not a terrible beer, but I didn't care much for it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark malty, chewey. Tangy yeasts offset by mellow chocolate and creamed coffee. Banana and clove peak in now and then. Smooth and easy to drink, went well with pizza, I'd like some more, please!

Good Weizens loose their freshness and flavors quickly, but if you can get one of these while it's fresh you'll be rewarded with banana, vanilla, and malt aromas, malt, fruit and yeast flavors with a smooth filling refreshing dark beer. Some prefer the lighter of their Weissbiers, I'll take the Dunkel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Body poured dark brown with a light, ample head. The aroma was complex. Hints of fruit and caramel and coffee and such. Kept trying unsuccessfully to pinpoint it. Good flavor. Weihenstephaner produces some good brews.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper hue with good off-white head and good lace. The aroma hints of banana, spice and citrus (hefe) caramel, roasted malt, and dusty yeast esters (dunkel). The taste starts malty sweet but the weizen character quickly adds notes of citrus and banana and that twangy yeast quality I love in the standard hefe. The finish has a strange (but good) miz of spice and smoke that is a clear indicator of the "blends" of the two styles. I like this because it is unique and offers a wide variety of flavors, complex and very drinkable.

Very sweet, yeasty aroma. Light cloudy brown. Yeasty sweet caramel flavour which is partly psycological colour association. Cloves strongly evident in the finish. A dunkel weiss where the dark doesn't overwhelm the wheat. Almost an Aventinus light.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy copper color with a minimal head but good lacing. Assertive fruity aroma-prunes, cranapple and orange with a slight vinous note to it. Light to medium bodied with plum, chocolate and clove flavors, smooth with a mild finish. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a murky copper brown with a huge puffy white head. Good yeasty citrus and wheat aroma. Body is sweet, lightly chocolatey, and crisp with mild spice and a full-bodied yeastiness. Finishes clean and refreshing. This is one of the best Dunkelweizens I've had.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Terrific muddy golden-brown appearance. Enourmous head and huge chunks of white lace. Nose is mildly sour with notes of banana and spice. The taste is the same only much fuller than the aroma. Refreshingly light bodied but a bit on the watery side. Mild carbonation. A touch of sweetness lingers on the palate after the beer is swallowed.
