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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ah, I’m starting to get bored with the dunkelweizen style, as I just can’t 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.

Poured to a hazy, milk chocolate brown, with off-white head that dissipated quickly, and little lacing. Aroma of malt, nuts and chocolate. Taste is malt, chocolate and spice, mostly clove. Could not detect much wheat flavor. Not a bad beer, but have had better Hefe Weiss.

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(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.
