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

Je la soupçonne d’être un peu défraichie. Des arômes de beurre de noisette, pruneaux, blé, levure qui émanent d’un liquide prune/marron chaotique. Le blé transporte les saveurs perçues au nez. Difficile de la critiquer justement.

Delicious combination of the consistency I expect from a wheat beer with the flavor of a stout. Enormous head, although it dissipated quicker than I’d hoped. Nice cloudy amber on the dark side, but lighter than I expected. Aroma of fruit and oak. Tastes like it has a higher ABV than 5%. Good beer.

0.5L glass on tap at Forst Central in Merano. Similar to the regular hefeweissbier with some roasted tones and a dryer finish.
Hazy dark orange to brown color, massive thick offwhite head to dip your nose in, then reducing to an almost permanent lacing, wow! Typical weizen: wheat, yeast, banana, a pinch of clove and lots of citrus and a roasted note. Balanced smooth\crisp, Sweetish, dry, long sourish finish. Almost as good as the blonde one.

Stuedmaster (161) - Vista, California, USA - DEC 18, 2013
500 ml bottle. Light Brown/copper/orange pour with beautiful, big, frothy head and lacing. Aroma is banana, clove, and lemon. Dry and creamy on the palate, interesting, complex flavor, sweet and sour with slight caramel. Light body, soft to average carbonation, somewhat bitter and sour finish.

Bottle at home (courtesy to Frederick). Sour sweet nose. Dark hazy orange color, two finger foamy head. Medium body, sweet, banana, gum, sharp bubbles, dry aftertaste. Real nice hefe. :) Bolton Brew.

sulawang (542) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Visual: The second one of a 3pack gift box. Pours translucent pale brown with a smallish lasting foamy head, several steady streams, not much lacing. Nose: extreme-euro barley malt beverage with a touch of caramel. (9)-aromatic strength. Attack: airy, sweet-crisp, creamy-fizzy mouthfeel Mid-palate: (7)-malty sweetness, alcohol detection (MAIN) barley malt, caramel, yeasty, toast (MILD) ginger Finish: cereal dry, very mild bitter hopped malty finish. Summary: An okay-decent dunkel displaying the typical flavour of malt. Drinkable, but not my favourite style of brew. (Note: numbers above are on a 10-point weak-strong scale)

bulldogops (1028) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013
Last review from the November Coop Discovery Beer Bag. Pour is a dark brown with a fairly frothy beige head with decent retention. Aroma is very malty, with puffed wheat square aroma, mild grassiness. Taste is smooth, malty, and very thick - but a very rounded out, balanced beer. Lots of yeast character evocative of some of the trappist brews. Wicked.

Fishingegghead (6) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 30, 2013 does not count
Aroma was fine with sweet aroma. Appearance was good with strong head. Taste was excellent however palate was failing

Aroma: typical for good weizen: spices, banana, sweetness, hint of yeast, caramel is really well hidden behind everything else. Pours hazy brown with nice light tan head. Head stays for a while. Taste: really creamy (almost like butter!), light citrus, spices, caramel, malt, light sourness and sweetness. Medium carbonation. Overall: good example of dunkelweizen, but for some reason I don’t really enjoy drinking this as much as I hoped (hence rather low overall).
