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

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 12, 2007
Interessante combinação floral das cervejas tipo Weiss (trigo) com o típico malte torrado das Dunkel. Dessa forma, nem ao céu, nem à Terra. Não fica azeda nem com gosto excessivo de café ou torrefação. Coloração marrom escuro, turvo. Creme pouco denso e consistente. Aroma de malte torrado e lúpulo. Carbonatação moderada.

runaway (73) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 9, 2007
500ml bottle poured ruddy brown like a bay horse, and a thick off-white head which takes a while to diffuse. The bottom of the bottle had lots of dark yeast making the body cloudy. Smells sweet like a doppelbock with clove, date, fruit and bread aromas. Taste is slightly bitter, wheaty and a little malty. The body is reminiscent of a hefeweizen but feels on the light side because it smells like something heavier. Has a sort of dry finish.

PilsnerPeter (3032) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 7, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2007 Bottle: Pours brown with an amber hue, topped by a very large and stable tan head. Very yeasty aroma, doughy, banana esters. The body is creamy, yet has a very fluffy texture. Flavor has lots of yeasty banana-like notes, light hint of chocolate, raisins. Solid maltiness, bready characteristics and has a nice chewy body. A very well crafted and classic Dunkelweizen.

altonbrownd (4597) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2007
On tap at Bekeerde Suster, A’dam. Creamy and amber coloured Dunkel. Top foam. Prickly with a quite bitter finish. Sweet and spicy, enjoyable.

Duster72 (117) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Pours a very dark amber with a massive head that takes several minutes to subside. Very sticky lacing down the glass. Aroma is sweet bready yeast and some fruits. Taste follows the aroma with a certain brown sugar taste to it. Nice interplay of the sweets with the fruit. Mouthfeel is very good and beer is very drinkable. You could session this beer very easily.

nearbeer (4389) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 19, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2008 Bottle and draft at several locations. Dark honey color and cloudy. Huge creamy-sticky head that lasts. Classic clove/banana spice nose of Bavarian weizen. Flavor follows and is very thirst-quenching and drinkable.

decaturstevo (5613) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 13, 2007
An aroma of yeast and spicy almost clovish tones. A light brown pour with a rolling white head and a full lacing. A flavor of caramelsh sweet malt and a bit of spice. A palate that is full and surprisingly complete if not for an overly aggressive carbonation this beer may have rated a tad higher. A pleasnat beer that I’m glad I tried. Thanks for the recommendation Jay.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - MAR 12, 2007
Poured from a pint bottle into a pint glass, reddish brown with a big beige head. Aroma is sweet malt and yeast. The taste was fairly thin with a touch of malt and brown bread and a faint hint of cloves. The flavor of both the Hefe Weiss and the Dark of this brand seem to be a bit subdued. I prefer the Hacker-Pschorr Dunkle Weiss with it’s heavier malt base.
