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

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 Really nice beer. Really good clove and spice notes. Only real weakness is taste lacks a bit of depth -- but then again pretty much all wheat beers do. One of the better wheat beers I have had.

Dark orange with a light tan head. Malty with a touch of nuts and caramel. Not too sweet. Hints of orange and banana. Very nice and balanced.

Another fine example of its kind. Not my favorite style, but one I try and treat with the respect Iím sure it deserves. To me the tastes are that of bread, cloves and koriander (banana). It is fairly sweet and caramel tinged, and I would have liked it if it could have had a bit more hoppy bitterness. Good body, I often think beers like these are a bit "watery".

Hard to track everything going on in this brew, but the bananas and cloves are definitely there (softly) with a smooth, light sweetness. Everything Iíve ever had from this brewery has been a delight.

ghendrix (108) - Cardiff, WALES - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle pours hazy brown with big pillowy beige head. Aromas are banana, caramel, bready yeast, herbs. Light-medium bitter, medium sweet. Medium-full body. Decent dunkel, I like it.

slawek (139) - Krakůw, POLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber, hazy body with small head. Aroma: Quite intense, bread, bananas, grain, some caramel. Medium sweetness, some sourness, no bitterness. Wheat harshness in mouthfeel, high carbonation. Very good.

spasticbeast (21) - Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Pours the color of an old penny with minimum clarity and big off-white head. Aroma is almost non-existant with a touch of malt coming through. Very creamy mouthfeel. Taste is herbal with a light sweetness and minute hops in the very abrupt finish. Drinkable, but not what I was hoping for.

Cristobal37 (265) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Amazing! Perfect hot weather brew. Delicious classic weissbier flavor with a nice malty touch. I usually prefer dunkels to the originals and this one is no exception. Really well done.

kapusil (599) - HUNGARY - MAY 23, 2014
On tap. Hazy dark orange body, beige head. Aroma of banana, toast, caramel and ripe pear. Taste of banana, toast, ripe apples, cinnamon and pepper. Creamy texture. Nice beer.
