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

LazyPyro (570) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2016
0.5L bottle. Cloudy orange-brown with a large creamy smooth head. Aroma of wheat, dark malts, banana, cloves. Taste is predominantly wheat and malt, with citrus, banana, spices, toffee. Sweet and fruity, the banana flavours more subdued than in similar beers. Extremely smooth mouthfeel, lovely to drink. A favourite.

Poured from a bottle. Generous thick head that dissipates quickly. First taste is very malty and smooth. A slight nutty taste lingers and finishes thick and bread like. A very solid dunkle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Robe brumeuse, laiteuse, modérément trouble pour une dunkel : sur l’orange foncée terne.Belle mousse blanc cassé abondante et crémeuse. Nez : parfum typique d’épices, bananes műres et céréales délicatement grillées (modérément). Je m’attendais ŕ un nez plus "fou" mais peut ętre bičre servie trop froide. En bouche : fine acidité typique, bouche céréaličre typique, corps léger mais laiteux, crémeux "léger" comme un lait écrémé fouetté ou des blancs battus.Tout est assez typique du genre, équilibré.Au vu des notes je m’attendez ŕ quelque chose de plus marqué.Peu de torréfaction, comme le laissé présagé la couleur, finalement une blanche allemande ŕ peine plus corsée. On reste tout de męme dans l’extręme maîtrise et l’équilibre idéal.Manque juste un peu plus de folie.

Cerveza de trigo. Muy buena. El aroma es indicador del sabor tan bueno que deja, intenso.

Fules (794) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - APR 16, 2016
Hatalmas, tartós hab, barna szín. Intenzív búzamalátás, szegfűszeges, banános illatvilág. Búzás, banános, fűszeres, enyhén karamellás ízvilág. Némi kakaóporos szárazság. Közepes szénsavtartalom. Rövid utóíze a korty folytatása. Közepesen testes. Nekem túl sok a fűszeresség.

BeerRenter76 (831) - Texas, USA - APR 16, 2016
Originally rated on 9/5/08. Tried this yesterday after trying the Julius Echter dunkel, although this was good, i prefered the Echter. If i had tried this one alone i probably would have scored it higher. It pours a murky brown body with a mid off white cap that had brown specks in it. A few yeast floaters and minimal carbonation. Aroma and flavors were mild toffe,banana, and a little clove. Mouthfeel was on the thin side. Overall it was fairly decent and i will try it again in the future. RE-RATE 8-14-2013 Tried on tap yesterday, a very nice dunkel, plenty of banana and clove without being overwhelming, very smooth and easy to drink from 3.3 to a 3.8

Schokoladenbraun mit schöner Schaumkrone. Malzig, weich, leicht bananig und würzig und etwas röstig nussig. Sehr süffiges angenehm zu trinkendes dunkles Weizen.
