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

5.3% ABV Light head. Dark golden brown caramel. Strong wheaty nose. Salty slightly harsh first mouthfeel. Salt predominates throughout the drinking experience. Can’t get past the salty palate. Not my favorite beer. Yeeech. Food pairing: hot wings.

VDuquerroux (610) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle 500mL. Home. A brown earthy opaque beer with orange hues ; huge off-white foamy head ; good retention. Cereal aroma, roast, herbs, light clove ; light banana. Light to medium sweet ; light dry ; bitter note ; refreshing. Light to medium body, medium texture, good carbonation (nearly fizzy), sweet roasty dry finish. Overall, a good refreshing dunkelweizen ; light dry ; I enjoyed the "roasty grain balance".

Beachmaster (227) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Bomber into a pint glass. Pours a cloudy dark golden brown, with a huge fluffy khaki head that slowly fades. Nose is dark malt with a hint of brown bread and molasses. Taste is light caramel and whole wheat bread. Smooth but not creamy. Well balanced and flavorful. Very good.

500 mL bottle. Pours a cloudy golden amber with an incredibly tall, frothy, and long lasting head. Scents of sugar, banana, and malt are very prominent. Taste is slightly sweet with big banana flavor and undertones of spice. Has a medium body, but is a little thin on texture. Lively carbonation and a slightly astringent finish bring things to a close. Overall, this is a good beer. I really like the sweet flavor on the front end, but I dislike the sourness on the back end, since it makes for an odd combination.

KoRoBeNiKi (86) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Aroma: Banana, wheat, malt, yeast Appearance: Yellow/brown with a cloudy huge head Taste: Sweet banana, similar to their other but with a malt backbone and a bit more sweetness. No major bitterness, kind of needs it. Palate: Refreshing, ish. I think their Hefeweissen is slightly better, more balance due to it being not as sweet.

BeerBunker (907) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Bottle. Pours murky brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma is of banana, spice, wheat, and malt. Smells tasty. Taste is big on the banana. Lots of spice. Has a very bready malt backbone. Lingering spiciness. Very sweet in the taste. Mouthfeel is very light, and almost sticky. Body is very light. It definitely drinks easy. Just a really good, tasty beer.
