(Bottle) Pours hazy light amber. Spicy and light floral aroma with some banana esters. Also some hints of clove. Spicy flavour with tones of banana and wheat. Soft and round mouthfeel with a light sour sting. Lingering wheat and banana-ish aftertaste. Medium bodied.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Typical characteristics of a dunkel - cloudy brown, aroma of banana, clove, and citrus. Flavor is nice, but still somewhat watery and muddled. Not a great example of the style.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2007 Another excellent weiss from the world’s oldest brewery. highly carboneded dark brown poor provides everything you’d expect, bananas and cloves taste. The dark malts give it an earthier quality that is quiet pleasent. Not as aromatic as the lighter hefeweisse but otherwise an excellent beer

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2007 I gently poured the virulent brown contents into my tall pint glass and it produced a massive foamy head that declined unevenly and slowly. As I worked through the foam to the body and flavor, I was nearly rendered speechless as the malty taste was lightly enhanced by the parts of bananas and yeast. All this from a bottle which led me to wonder the usual question: what is like on tap? Update 10/07: The tap version is not as strongly nuanced as the bottle, but it is very drinkable.
