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

Nice hazy chestnut brown with a decent creamy head. Pleasant aroma as expected for a dunkel. Flavor is good, not the best I’ve had but good enough. A little more citric and brittle than some, but still quite flavorful and good. Drinkable and nice. Nothing wrong here.

Brown in color with a large beige foamy head. Aroma is malt and caramel, lightly wheat. Flavor is slightly sweet and lightly wheaty. Finish is a little sweet.

Nice color, cloudy wheaty! Aroma is sweet straw, reminders of working hay in daya gone by. Taste is sweet and very fresh. Almost like a great salad. Head is big and lingers, helping the extremely smooth nature. Nice, very nice! I’ll be back!

ALLOVATE (2437) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2005
Tasted from the bottle after a night shift, so my rating may be a bit off key!! Poured into a Weihenstephaner Weiss glass very slowly as I had trouble controlling the massive gassed-up head that spewed from the bottle. Once under control the aroma kicked in. Very fresh and slightly acidic citric hop and sour-dough wheat scents dominated, with hints of lemon & orange peel, milk chocolate and cinnamon. The body a chestnut amber, not as brown as I had expected, with high carbonation keeping the thick off-white head safely in the glass. Lighter than expected body, low yeasty biscuit notes little hints of clove and cinnamon mid-palate. Fruity highlights of lemons, oranges and unripened bananas ( Became sour and slightly lactic half way down ). Short, pleasant aftertaste and quite refreshing. Not the best of the Weihenstephan range, but a decent oddly sessionable Dunkel.

Geiserich (3412) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JAN 22, 2005
Wheat, lemon and clove aroma. Big head, cloudy brown amber color. Flavor has banana notes, light sweetness. Light hint of burnt chocolate. Light dry, light astrigent finish. All in all not very impressive.

Strong banana aroma and flavor. As refreshing as any wheat beer I’ve ever had. Remarkably smooth mouthfeel.

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2005
Light cloudy caramel in colour. Pours a big fluffy head. Nose is a bit worrying - a bit metallic and faint chocolate notes. Palate saves the day with faint sweet malty notes and traces of clove and banana peel. Medium fizz level works well. Pretty good.

barleyPops (1141) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2005
bottle. looks a little pale compared to other dunkels I’ve sampled. the flavor also was a bit thin in comparison to the dunkelweizens I have tried.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Pint bottle poured into a tall glass. Brown cloudy coloured. off white head. Smooth fill with nice balanced flavours. not tooo complex. Different malts, fruits(banana, cherries,) Some spices(nutmeg, clove) but very faint. Kinda sweet. I def. enjoyed this. I might keep one of these in the fridge to sip on. *note: my bottle’s top lable said Dunkel, and the main bottom lable said brown*

Eructoblaster (3059) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2004
Bottle - 500ml. Brown cloudy body topped with a nice and lasting off-white foamy head. Nice yeasty aroma with some fruity (citrus, cherries, banana) notes. Robust and well-balanced taste with various flavors of malt, hops, fruits, and spices. Decent bitter/citrusy finish. Very good example of a Dunkles Weizen.
