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

Brown pour, large and rapidly diminishing head, decent at best lacing. Aroma is bananas, caramel, darker fruits, some oxidation, yeast. Flavor brings this, lightly sweet and tart. Overall decent but probably the worst beer I’ve had from them.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 12, 2007
12oz draft at Rathskeller, Indy - Aroma is very yeasty, sweet and bready with a touch of lemon and spice. Pours cloudy brown-orange with a small head and little lacing. Flavor matches aroma with the clove and banana coming out. Palate is smooth and creamy. Sweet and tasty.

500ml bottle. Pours a huge, off white head that slowly settled. Not as cloudy as a golden hefe but the rich, dark amber brown color is appealing. Smells like clove and banana. Nice flavor with a smooth, creamy texture. The flavor to me is not as yummy as a regular high end hefe but I think I’ll try to keep a bottle of this around for guest to try out.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - FEB 11, 2007
Mmmm...clovey. Deliciously complex without putting the senses on overload. I just wish it had a bit more aroma. Other than that, another fine beer.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Pours a very hazy bronze/brown with a thick two finger head that slowly fades to a thick cap and leaves behind a substantial amount of lacing. Smell; full of bananas and cloves. There’s also a bit of a grassy smell, along with a nice caramel sweetness. Taste; the cloves and bananas have a strong presence, but not to powerful. It has a yeasty bread dough flavor, as well as a bit of earthiness, and finishes with a good malty sweetness. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy, and goes down really nicely. I’m happy that I can get some of these Weihenstephaner beers in my area now.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Pours a hazy copper, topped by a thick and creamy light tan foam. Great head retention, decent lacing. Light malt aroma, with a little bit of dry spiciness in there too. Flavorful beer - nutty toasted malt, wheat, caramel, chocolate, clove and some other earthy dry spice. All of these flavors are fairly mild on their own, yet blend together for a nice, complex taste. Toasted malt, a little bit o’ honey sweetness, and some dry apple-citrus tartness linger into the finish and aftertaste. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel, quite well carbonated.
