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

Cloudy amber color with a long lasting offwhite head. Aromas of clove some banana and a hint of carmel. Flavors of spicy clove, light banana, and some carmel. it also has a pleasent aftertaste.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Poured a dark cloudy amber with a tall off-white head. Aroma of typical hefeweizen... banana, cloves, touch of hops. Taste follows from the aroma, rather mellow hefe cloves and banana essence with a touch of caramel. Very balanced, though nothing exceptional.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Full velvety head, lasting. Body is a rusty, glowing brown, slightly cloudy with slow bubbles. Aroma has hints of chocolate and molassis. Medium to light body, taste is brown sugar, candi, and molassis. Traces of spicy citrus add to the flavor. Finish was short and a little lacking. Overall, quite a nice concoction.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 Bottle: Slightly dark, hazy amber with a large off-white head that faded quickly. Sweet, wheaty, spicey aromas with some very well integrated (and natural??) banana notes, and some faint floral tones too (something white). Really a very well structured nose. Unfortunately this didn’t translate into a well structured flavour profile. Quite sweet and of course highly carbonated. More banane here with the spicey elements acting as the balancing elements. Not near as enticing as the aromas. Very nice but let down a little by some wet cardboard flavours.

highlandlad (1421) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2005
Expected to like this more than I did. Poured a ruby colour with a big lasting head. Yeasty aroma with strong floral traits (lillies?) permeated by sweet malt. Creamy mouthfeeel and light to medium body. Some crisp apple fruitiness - in fact spiced apples - but dark malt is dominant. Sweet but a little one-dimensional. (Bottle)

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2005
(Bottle) Yummy! This is my favorite dunkel weissbier right now. It tastes wonderfully like honey and spices. And the color is absolutely perfect hazy amber, with a snow-white head. I’m in love!

Pours like mud into the glass cloudy and about that color. Very big head fluffy and clings to the side of the glass. Smells fruity some bananna and wheat aroma. Slight clove aroma as well. Flavor is first the cloves then more of the fruit. Smooth on the palate then the taste of the sweet fruit then a little sour aftertaste that makes it very refreshing. Decent flavor and worth a try for a new style. I liked it.

asheft (2553) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2005
Opaque (poured with the yeast), ruddy, muddy, brown with a fuzzy white top that lasts. Like smelling a banana cream pie with some cloves on top. While the aroma is more banana, the flavour is more clove that bites a bit with the carbonation and then settles to a smooth banana and a little bitterness that might not be just from hops. Strawberry notes along with the banana and maybe a touch of sour, horseblanket make this beer very refreshing. Put the high carbonation and light to medium body with that and you have quite a nice drink. Thumbs up.

jeffin7 (612) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2005
Pours hazy brown with a huge head that fades. Aroma is of hay, banana, and clove. Flavor is a mild but full banana caramel with some clove.

Bottled. Hazy orangebrownish colour, longlasting foamy head. Very fruity aroma, with hints of wheat and weak yeast. Sweet fruity flavour with hints of yeast. Not much aftertaste.
