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

jgentgesdo (667) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 30, 2005
Pours cloudy brown with a quickly diminishing off-white head. Nose is wheat and heavy, ripe banana. The flavor is more banana than anything, with some tasty wheat notes and a bit of clove. Mouthfeel is distressingly watery, and there is very little aftertaste. Bitterness is less than 10. I don’t taste any chocolate either. Neh.

I liked the Weihenstephaner and I prefer darks. So, I was really looking forward to this. It poured with a thick head and amber finish (not quite dark enough for me).. It tasted like a complex blend of banana and puke.

presario (4611) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 22, 2005
Popped the cap and began looking for the right glass and when I turned around the beer was seeping out (foam). I quickly grabbed a nearby clean pilsener glass. It took a while to pour the full bottle with the foam. Looked like chocolate whip cream on a dusty brown beer. Dusty and mild yeast aroma. Dusty banana flavours, with a building chocolate finish. Quite enjoyable (harmonious even) but not as zesty as expected.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAR 22, 2005
(on bottle) After having the "Tradition", was this quite the dull experience. The wheats with it´s banana-flavour, along with a very mild use of dark malts, makes it more of a thirstkiller, than a full drink.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Pours hazy brown/red with gargantuan continuously rising head. The beer is really churning in there from the tremendous carbonation. Aromas of grassy, yeast, and a slight sourness. Tastes of bitter yeast but not much else.

maltdog (617) - Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Completely turbid russet color with a creamy, frothy head that leaves spots of lacing. Yeasty aroma of bread dough, acetic tang of sourdough starter, and the soft warm incense of baking banana-walnut muffins. Flavor is minerally and tart, club soda, banana smoothie, and a spiciness bordering on outright heat. Fluffy, mousselike palate. Finishes earthy, smoky, and lightly phenolic- wild mushrooms and cocao nibs. I remember this being more bready and chocolately and... better.

kms399 (267) - plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 25, 2005
one finger head dissipates quickly. pours a golden brown. tons of carbonation taste is bannana and wheat. I drink this a ton and am always pleased. best on hot summer days.

bottle. mahogany body with a huge luscious white head. aroma consists of banana and yeast, soap, and spice. smooth creamy body. Though it does seem a tiny bit watery. sweet and malty. notes of caramel. Pretty good.

Lunkie (1401) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2005
Sweet malt floral grassy aroma. Cloudy brown colour with excellent head that fades quickly. Sweet malt flavour that takes your breath away. Smooth thick palate. A bit too sweet for my palate.

yayforbeer (752) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2005
Nice hazy chestnut brown with a decent creamy head. Pleasant aroma as expected for a dunkel. Flavor is good, not the best I’ve had but good enough. A little more citric and brittle than some, but still quite flavorful and good. Drinkable and nice. Nothing wrong here.
