A very nice beer. A bit on the sweet side, but still very easy to drink. Good caramel and slight molasses like presence, mixed in with some fruity banana qualities and hefe spiciness. One of the best out of the Weihenstephan brews.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I have just voted this as my favourite wheat beer style based on the experience I have had with the Scheinder Aventinus. Clearly this is a less potent brew. Looks good in the glass with a fine copper/caramel colour and dense white head. A fine toffee and caramel nose too with hints of a plummy undertone. The flavour is lifting and clean, a very good beer that would be best consumed in warmer weather at a barbecue of ribs or barbecued pork.

A little watery and plain tasting.
aroma and appearance is awsome but flavor is lacking. dull

Tawny reddish brown, lots of thick tan foam. Excellent toasted wheat and peachy aromas, fresh and appetizing, medium bodied with slight tartness and very subdued roast, slight ripe/ sweet lemon, dry finish, very pleasant...best dunkel weiss I’ve had I’d say.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Murky light brown in color. Huge off-white rocky head. Very similar smell and flavor to the hefeweiss. Clove and banana dominate, but with a slight caramel note. Not bad but a more toasted flavor and less cloveness would be better.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown and murky pour, with a head that will flow out of your pint glass unless you use the slowest pour possible. Aroma is of yeast, banana and a whiff of spice and malt. Taste is an obligatory balance of yeast and wheat, with some nutmeg, ginger, banana and that obligatory dunkels caramel/malt backbone... not quite as complex as their regular hefe, but not far behind... superb for the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep reddish brown amber with large white head. Faint aroma of spice, wheat. For the style, flavor tends towards the darker, dry end, especially in the finish, in contrast to other dunkelweizens that might be excessively sweet. I enjoyed that, but the flavor is a little bland overall. Medium body, wheat and roasted caramel notes, with a dry tobacco finish. A dunkelweizen with more dunkel than weizen.

This was a very good dunkelweizen. It poured a chesnut brown color with a tan/white head. The taste was malty, fruity, and yeasty, with a perfect balance of flavors. Recommended.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber in colour with a hint of bronze. The nose is wheaty and yeasty with just a kick of grain. The taste is light and somewhat citrusy with an overlay of wheat and copper. Pretty darn good and feels quite light in the mouth. if I only liked wheatbeers better.
