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

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2006 Rerate: Had again on draft and it was the same as below, but even more underwhelming. Original Rate: Soft aroma is sweet and yeasty. I love how it looks in a tall weizen glass- pillows of foam atop a highly carbonated cloudy brown body. Flavor is sweet and malty, with clove like spiciness, cake dough, yeast, and a bit of pear/banana. Finish is subtle bitterness, but a little too sweet still.

hazy brown with fluffy white head. Aroma of malts (pilsener & caramel), yeast (wheat) & hops.Texture is medium filling. Finish has slight sweetness. Pleasant though short finish!

Beautiful dark copper color with a large frothy off white head. Strong bananas and spice in the aroma. Terrific wheaty flavor. I love wheat beers and this is one of my favorites so far.

dwedin (249) - Happy Valley, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2006
Poured very slow and still huge off white head, body clear brown with a reddish tint. Spicy banana aromas with a hint of alcohol. Malty sweetness that is balanced with a slight bitterness that fades into a burnt tasting finish.

Ah, Iím starting to get bored with the dunkelweizen style, as I just canít distinguish among the good ones. Sure, a bad one is bad, but the good ones are all the same to me. This one poured the usual dark brown, cloudy color with a great head and ok lacing. The aroma was typical of the fine examples, some bananas, light spicing, some roastedness. The flavor was more sweet than dry, and the roasted notes were light. The mouthfeel was full and this was a filling finish to the night.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2007 Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours dunkel like, murkey brown with a large off-white head. Aroma of citrus, wheat, bananas, spices. Flavor is smooth, bananas, spices, wheat. Good body great brew.
