COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Supple, malty and mellow. Its harmonious flavour is the great strength of our dark wheat beer.

Pours a nice dark & cloudy appearance with a huge off-white head. Strong aroma of yeast, banana & wheat. Taste is complex with yeast, malt & wheat. A decent dunkelweizen.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2006 16.9 oz. bottle. The beer has that classic, appetizing, zesty, lemony, gingery, hefeweizen aroma. This is my first non-fruit hefeweizen in a few months, and I very much welcome the return of that great scent. The color is a hazy gold-tinged light-to-medium brown. The color is lighter than the "dark" designation might suggest. The beer pours with a large amount of head, as is typical to the style. It tastes just as it smells, which is a good thing, but whereas the aroma is powerful, the flavor is disappointingly subdued. The texture is smooth and the carbonation is fizzy, but in a typical, almost boring, sort of way. Overall, this is a pretty good beer, but it definitely could afford a significant boost in the quantity of its tasty flavor.

Medium caramel-brown body accompanied by a rocky, dirty white head. Lacing. Nose of wheat and malt. Flavor is very wheatie, yeastie and bread-like. Clove also noted. Finish is creamy with some spice.

Some good banana and citrus in the aroma. Pours a hazy brown. There is some good citrus in the flavor, with a nutty, roasted character.

Zeswaft (1446) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2006
Looks like muddy water with a big frothy head. Slight banana aroma. Flavor is malty and yeasty. A lot like a belgian dubbel believe it or not. Definitely not as good as the regular hefe, but still good.
