3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2006 16.9 oz. bottle. The beer has that classic, appetizing, zesty, lemony, gingery, hefeweizen aroma. This is my first non-fruit hefeweizen in a few months, and I very much welcome the return of that great scent. The color is a hazy gold-tinged light-to-medium brown. The color is lighter than the "dark" designation might suggest. The beer pours with a large amount of head, as is typical to the style. It tastes just as it smells, which is a good thing, but whereas the aroma is powerful, the flavor is disappointingly subdued. The texture is smooth and the carbonation is fizzy, but in a typical, almost boring, sort of way. Overall, this is a pretty good beer, but it definitely could afford a significant boost in the quantity of its tasty flavor.

Medium caramel-brown body accompanied by a rocky, dirty white head. Lacing. Nose of wheat and malt. Flavor is very wheatie, yeastie and bread-like. Clove also noted. Finish is creamy with some spice.

Some good banana and citrus in the aroma. Pours a hazy brown. There is some good citrus in the flavor, with a nutty, roasted character.

Looks like muddy water with a big frothy head. Slight banana aroma. Flavor is malty and yeasty. A lot like a belgian dubbel believe it or not. Definitely not as good as the regular hefe, but still good.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2007 WOW ! YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY ONCE YOU GO DUNKEL YOU NEVER GO BACH! Ok pours a cloudy brown as you would expect any dark wheat too pour. The head was 2 fingers worth and the retention was perfect. The aroma of caramel sweetness and wheat. The taste is amazing, tofee, banana and wheat. This went down so smooth and so tasty. I really enjoyed this.

bottle - Pours dark brown with a big, fluffy head. It has a very yeasty aroma. The flavor is mostly malt and yeast maybe a touch of fruitiness. The body is a little thin and the finish is clean.
