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

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, 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.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2006
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.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2006
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.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Dark and cloudy with a lose head. Strong yeast and wheat aroma, Body is medium, with a lighter wheat taste that the aroma would indicate. The finish is dry and clean

Lowe1983 (1389) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2006
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.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2006
(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.

On tap at Ølbaren. Hazy brownish in colour with a small head. Fresh and fruity with notes of berries. A bit too plane though.
