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

From the tap, this poured a hazy brown color with a frothy off-white head. The aroma is grassy with notes of banana and caramel. This is very soft in the mouth. The taste is mild but enjoyable, caramel malt with some spiciness to it. After 964 years, this brewey sure knows its business.

Pours a dark hazy brown color. Aroma is strong and wheaty. Flavor is wheat with lots of spice. Slight malt flavor as well.

Wow, neato. My first dunkel. I was surprised to find the taste so similar to a regular hefe, albeit with some of them dark malts. Big old head, nice brown body. Very tasty!

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2004 This beer had a great pour and a sensational smell. However I was expecting it to taste like a strong Hefeweisse and I did not get that. There was too much malt in the taste which made me miss the Hefeweisse. Still a good beer. It was worth the try. Trying new beers is always very enjoyable.

IJT (40) - Carterton, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2004
A very nice dunkel weissbier, a cloudy tan colour with a creamy head that sits high atop. The addition of the yeast added a much higher level of complexity to the flavour and a nicer rounded out flavour. In the mouth it was quite a bit of sprits and tingly on the tongue. Overall very nice and refreshing.

Bottled. A chestnut brown coloured beer with a good head. The aroma is reminiscent of banoffee pie - both banana, toffee and caramel notes. The taste really grows on you through the bottle. Wheaty lemon notes, caramel, nuts and a bit if banana. Very nice

Kinz (3292) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Draft. Murky brown with a lush tan head. Aroma of cloves, bananas, hint of bubblegum, but also a bready note. Flavor starts off centered on the malt, sweet but not at all cloying, with a spicy yeast finish, particular accent on the cloves which increased as it warmed. Exceptionally well balanced, another textbook style example from this brewer.

Copper color, medium fruity malty aroma, light roasted malty taste, medium body, light dry finish.

Wow, a very very good beer! I was kind of surprised by this selection, great copper color, very lasting head. Capped off by a wonderful taste reminiscent of other great german weissbiers

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2011 One of my favorite German brewers. Yet another excellent example of the style. +++ Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy light mahogany color with a huge fluffy tan head that lingered. The aroma was sweet and malty with a hint of fruit and spice. The flavor was sour, malty and tangy with a bit of roasted malt. It was slightly sour and wheaty on the finish. The sourness grows as it warms. Another fine offering from a good brewer.
