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

a lttlie too malty for my liking. a nice fruit taste too it but its bread like after-taste left me a little disappointed. One high not was the apperance a hazy brown color with a tan head that had excellent retention.

Another nice product from weihenstephaner. I have yet to drink anything from this brewery that is not a winner. This particular dark hefe I thought had a nice blend of malt and some mild chocolatey appeal. The aroma of it was very familiar, though i can’t place it, a very light malt indeed. I can definitely taste the weihenstephaner all too familiar clove, it’s not nearly as present in this one as in some of the other sibling brews (kristallweissbier?) Although it might be a liitle too light for dark lovers, I still enjoyed this one personally. thanks again to this company.

Flowery aroma. Dark like dirty watter with a good sized head. Slightly sweet with a malty floral character, very little hop action. Doesn’t really leave a lasting impression on the palate. Worth a try at 2.50 a bottle

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 3, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2007 Pours a dark old penny color w/ a full, creamy froth. Head retention sticks like a stubbrn mule. Aromas of musty yet brisk, dried dark fruits. Medium nectar with very litte residual effers. A little watery on the palate actually. Slightly medicinal malt flavors to include coffee, bakers cocoa, plum, bitters, and fruit cake spice. After a bit the spicey character really opens up and jumps out at you like the Joker and cackles relentlessly in your face. Possesses a mild fruity sweetness. The finish is bittered ever so slightly and has a lingering spicey malt essence. Overall: this is a more delicate specimen w/ defined style characteristics. Well balanced yet a little thin at times. A good brew none the less.

haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JAN 30, 2006
at Frankfurt airport, bottled ; everytime I take a sniff of a hefe dunkel I always get that caramel feel, same with this one. Caramel and maybe some light chocolate. Very tasty, typical hefe dunkel, but with a more thick palate than the most of them. Quaffable and tasty

nick76 (4304) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2006
The aroma has raisins, brown sugar, malt, yeast, and mild hops. The appearance is hazy red brown with a medium-large head that is persistent. The flavor has raisins, lightly toasted malt, caramel, spices, and licorice. The palate is on the thin side. This is a good tasting beer that is just too weak.

Aubrey (3482) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2006
Creamy-frothy head; apple cider appearance, cloudy and brownish. Highly carbonated; lightish body. A little toast in the malts. Sweet banana esters. Very, very mild bitterness surfaced in the aftertaste. Clean, light and refreshing beer with pleasant flavors, but not very exciting.

MiP (14047) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2006
Bottle. The aroma is wheaty and yeasty, but a little weak. Cloudy, bright red/brown colour. Big stable head. The flavour is more powerful than the aroma, quite malty and wheaty. Slight liquorice aftertaste.

oldrtybastrd (3222) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Pours a dark hazy brown color. Aromas of bread, malt, and some fruit. Flavor has a touch of sweet malt and clove, I think. Overall, not to bad.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - DEC 13, 2005
500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber color with an off white head. Nose is wheat, yeast and malt. Tiny amount of citrus detectable. Much weaker flavor than expected, wheat and malt, some light spices. None of the banana that other raters had experienced. Body is thinner than usual for the style, leaving a very slight creaminess. Overall, somewhat blah. Not bad, but blah.
