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

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Dark and cloudy with a lose head. Strong yeast and wheat aroma, Body is medium, with a lighter wheat taste that the aroma would indicate. The finish is dry and clean

Pours a brownish-amber color wiht a thick light tan head. Aroma is of wheat, citrus, lemon, spices, and sweet malts. Flavor is basically the same with some hints of banana and a slightly bitter finish. Not a bad hefeweiss.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2006
(04.20.06) 16 oz brown bottle from Beergeek.biz. 5.3% ABV. Poured hazy dark amber with large white head. No discernable carbonation. Sweet malt and spicy clove in the nose. Medium bodied dunkel that starts dry with smoky/clove flavors. Some Banana esters. Finished dry with light malt fade. Light hop bitterness detected. Well-balanced and delicious, both this beer and the regular hefeweiss beer are probably the finest hefeweiss beers that I’ve tried thus far.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2006
On tap at Ølbaren. Hazy brownish in colour with a small head. Fresh and fruity with notes of berries. A bit too plane though.

Insipid. Postage stamp paste flavor. Palate was little more than dead on arrival. Will never buy/drink another one.

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2006
Weihenstephan seems to surprise me with their high-end very drinkable beers. Sitting in the sunshine this is great! nice fruity and spicy aromas and flavours, everything characteristic. Not as good as there"regular" weizzen maybe, but very quenching.

pbjclimber (150) - Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2006
This is a pretty good beer, pours a light mahogany color with a fluffy tan head. Taste is might with lemon, cloves, banana, and dry malts, not very sweet. Very drinkable and light.

demitriustown (1112) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2006
Pours a a cloudy brown with a nice size foamy white head. Aroma is banana, coriander,wheat, semi-malty, with an alcohol undertone. Taste is definately malty with banana and spicy notes throughout and some subtle lemon notes. Palate is thin and almost nonexistent. Nice Flavorful and wonderfully smelling Dunkelwiezen yet the palate kind of leaves you short.

madquacker (1064) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2006
Excellent balanced complexity. Haven’t tried a dark hefeweissbier before. Not overly sweet and a lovely integration of flavours.
