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

Duster72 (117) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Pours a very dark amber with a massive head that takes several minutes to subside. Very sticky lacing down the glass. Aroma is sweet bready yeast and some fruits. Taste follows the aroma with a certain brown sugar taste to it. Nice interplay of the sweets with the fruit. Mouthfeel is very good and beer is very drinkable. You could session this beer very easily.

nearbeer (4608) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 19, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2008 Bottle and draft at several locations. Dark honey color and cloudy. Huge creamy-sticky head that lasts. Classic clove/banana spice nose of Bavarian weizen. Flavor follows and is very thirst-quenching and drinkable.

decaturstevo (5743) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 13, 2007
An aroma of yeast and spicy almost clovish tones. A light brown pour with a rolling white head and a full lacing. A flavor of caramelsh sweet malt and a bit of spice. A palate that is full and surprisingly complete if not for an overly aggressive carbonation this beer may have rated a tad higher. A pleasnat beer that Iím glad I tried. Thanks for the recommendation Jay.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - MAR 12, 2007
Poured from a pint bottle into a pint glass, reddish brown with a big beige head. Aroma is sweet malt and yeast. The taste was fairly thin with a touch of malt and brown bread and a faint hint of cloves. The flavor of both the Hefe Weiss and the Dark of this brand seem to be a bit subdued. I prefer the Hacker-Pschorr Dunkle Weiss with itís heavier malt base.

JorisPPattyn (9050) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2007
Fully hazy amber beer with a rosy shine; amber tinted, very dense head. Milk, lactic, traces of diacetyl, and wheat. Roasted malt, only traces of diary flavours. Bit of corn too, and certainly wheat taste. Well balanced. Quite full bodied, aftertaste is typically sourish. Decent Dunkel Weizen. Interesting balance, just fine.

beerlord (217) - tonawanda, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2007
Nice medium brown wit a thick tan head. Light Clove arome with a touch of malt. Light sweet malth/phenol flavor. Light mouth feel, suprisingly dry finish.

An excellent hefeweizen. I certainly liked how this one poured, with the same bubbly texture as the regular hefes but with a dark brown appearance. The brew was rather sweet with a nice texture that goes down very smoothly. Worth a try.

Without a doubt the greatest weissbier Iíve ever had. Dark and sweet flavors, nice warm thick mouthfeel, everythink I could ever want from a weissbier. Absolutely amazing.
