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

Bottle. Very large beautiful white head. Orange copper colour. Very cloudy. Bitterish but at the same time sweet, a definite yeast aroma. Round, typical wheatbeer flavour with a hint of tar. Sourish. After taste of yeast and tar. Fairly light carbonation.

Kevin (2103) - New Mexico, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Pours like muddy creek water but with a fatter head of lemon white and gray. Tart banana plum nose. Sweet toffee flavor that works well with the yeasty banana flavor. Some chocolate in the finish. A bit chewy, but I like it that way sometimes. This reminds me of good times spent at the Bavarian in Plano, I really need to write to my bartender there, I need to find some schnitzel around this area, schnitzel would be good right now too. To the kitchen, posthaste. Ap-3 ar-6 tas-7 pal-5 ov-15

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAR 23, 2006
500ml bottle: poured orange/brown with a medium sized beige head. Very strong sweet overripe bananas going on in the aroma with this one. Flavor is more of the same although not quite as full flavored as the nose suggests. Very lively carbonation. Moderate yeast esters with delicate spiciness. Very good.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2006
50 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Muddy brown colour with a little head. Aroma of bread, yeast and some hints of banana. Nice flavour of wheat, yeast and hints of chocolate. Very little noteable that this is a dunkel weissbeer, and not just a hefe-weissen, only the colour tells it.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 5, 2006
16.9oz bottle. Hazy and ruby brown. White head. Typical banana and clove aroma. But also a cinnamon sweet malty character. Also in the nose, a slight bubblegum and citrus, corny and grainy aroma. Rich, malty, sweet, sugary, corny and syrupy in the mouth. Lively and flavorful, it has the typical hefe taste characteristics, yet more. A cola like effervescence and flavor. Cloying and smooth. Yeasty and grainy, malty and nutty. Nicely done!

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2008 [bottle] Overall, pretty sweet. Nice wheat and yeast aroma. Malty background, sort of nutty. Strong clove and phenol aroma. Wheat and malt flavors, with a complex banana/clove phenolic character. Very nice.

FrankJohansen (3604) - Sabro, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2006
Dark hazy brown color. Aroma of bread, malt, and fruits. Flavor has a touch of sweet malt, I think. Overall, not to bad.

crazyvin (1993) - New York, USA - FEB 17, 2006
a lttlie too malty for my liking. a nice fruit taste too it but its bread like after-taste left me a little disappointed. One high not was the apperance a hazy brown color with a tan head that had excellent retention.

Another nice product from weihenstephaner. I have yet to drink anything from this brewery that is not a winner. This particular dark hefe I thought had a nice blend of malt and some mild chocolatey appeal. The aroma of it was very familiar, though i canít place it, a very light malt indeed. I can definitely taste the weihenstephaner all too familiar clove, itís not nearly as present in this one as in some of the other sibling brews (kristallweissbier?) Although it might be a liitle too light for dark lovers, I still enjoyed this one personally. thanks again to this company.

Flowery aroma. Dark like dirty watter with a good sized head. Slightly sweet with a malty floral character, very little hop action. Doesnít really leave a lasting impression on the palate. Worth a try at 2.50 a bottle
