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

This is a pretty good beer, pours a light mahogany color with a fluffy tan head. Taste is might with lemon, cloves, banana, and dry malts, not very sweet. Very drinkable and light.

demitriustown (1126) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2006
Pours a a cloudy brown with a nice size foamy white head. Aroma is banana, coriander,wheat, semi-malty, with an alcohol undertone. Taste is definately malty with banana and spicy notes throughout and some subtle lemon notes. Palate is thin and almost nonexistent. Nice Flavorful and wonderfully smelling Dunkelwiezen yet the palate kind of leaves you short.

Excellent balanced complexity. Haven’t tried a dark hefeweissbier before. Not overly sweet and a lovely integration of flavours.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 12, 2006
In the 0.5 L bottle at the Huber Haus Weissbier tasting 4/11/6. Pours dark amber with a thin white head. Aroma is mild and subtle- maybe a bit of fruitiness. Surprisingly not sweet at all. Matly and dry roasted. A bit tingly to the tounge. Palate is not smooth.

Hanna (10) - Turku, FINLAND - APR 3, 2006
Bottle. Very large beautiful white head. Orange copper colour. Very cloudy. Bitterish but at the same time sweet, a definite yeast aroma. Round, typical wheatbeer flavour with a hint of tar. Sourish. After taste of yeast and tar. Fairly light carbonation.

Kevin (2154) - New Mexico, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Pours like muddy creek water but with a fatter head of lemon white and gray. Tart banana plum nose. Sweet toffee flavor that works well with the yeasty banana flavor. Some chocolate in the finish. A bit chewy, but I like it that way sometimes. This reminds me of good times spent at the Bavarian in Plano, I really need to write to my bartender there, I need to find some schnitzel around this area, schnitzel would be good right now too. To the kitchen, posthaste. Ap-3 ar-6 tas-7 pal-5 ov-15

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAR 23, 2006
500ml bottle: poured orange/brown with a medium sized beige head. Very strong sweet overripe bananas going on in the aroma with this one. Flavor is more of the same although not quite as full flavored as the nose suggests. Very lively carbonation. Moderate yeast esters with delicate spiciness. Very good.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2006
50 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Muddy brown colour with a little head. Aroma of bread, yeast and some hints of banana. Nice flavour of wheat, yeast and hints of chocolate. Very little noteable that this is a dunkel weissbeer, and not just a hefe-weissen, only the colour tells it.
