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

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JUL 30, 2004
0.5 l bottle, weiss glass. Pours a cloudy, milky brown, with a big white head. Aroma is a mix of banana, clove, and milk chocolate. Flavor is much the same, with a big round malt profile. Decent and nicely drinkable.

Bottle pours cloudy caramel, slightly dark, large fluffy off-white head, with fairly sticky lacing.   Clove, banana, and bread on the nose.   Forwardly wheaty, slight banana and clove but somewhat subtle.   Medium body, full mouthfeel.   Finishes like it starts, but with a slight spiciness to it and a slight sweetness.   Good, but I prefer the regular version to this one.

beastdog75 (362) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2004
A very nice beer. A bit on the sweet side, but still very easy to drink. Good caramel and slight molasses like presence, mixed in with some fruity banana qualities and hefe spiciness. One of the best out of the Weihenstephan brews.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2004
I have just voted this as my favourite wheat beer style based on the experience I have had with the Scheinder Aventinus. Clearly this is a less potent brew. Looks good in the glass with a fine copper/caramel colour and dense white head. A fine toffee and caramel nose too with hints of a plummy undertone. The flavour is lifting and clean, a very good beer that would be best consumed in warmer weather at a barbecue of ribs or barbecued pork.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - JUL 5, 2004
cloudy murky caromel color with an awsome thick head that lasted the entire beer!! A little watery and plain tasting. aroma and appearance is awsome but flavor is lacking. dull

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 1, 2004
Tawny reddish brown, lots of thick tan foam. Excellent toasted wheat and peachy aromas, fresh and appetizing, medium bodied with slight tartness and very subdued roast, slight ripe/ sweet lemon, dry finish, very pleasant...best dunkel weiss I’ve had I’d say.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Murky light brown in color. Huge off-white rocky head. Very similar smell and flavor to the hefeweiss. Clove and banana dominate, but with a slight caramel note. Not bad but a more toasted flavor and less cloveness would be better.

Hangover (1057) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Dark brown and murky pour, with a head that will flow out of your pint glass unless you use the slowest pour possible. Aroma is of yeast, banana and a whiff of spice and malt. Taste is an obligatory balance of yeast and wheat, with some nutmeg, ginger, banana and that obligatory dunkels caramel/malt backbone... not quite as complex as their regular hefe, but not far behind... superb for the style.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 23, 2004
Pours a deep reddish brown amber with large white head. Faint aroma of spice, wheat. For the style, flavor tends towards the darker, dry end, especially in the finish, in contrast to other dunkelweizens that might be excessively sweet. I enjoyed that, but the flavor is a little bland overall. Medium body, wheat and roasted caramel notes, with a dry tobacco finish. A dunkelweizen with more dunkel than weizen.
