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

Bill Becker (810) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Pours from 16.9oz bottle(room temp) a cloudy brown with a large billowy head of foam that shrinks slowly and leaves a fine solid layer, with lots of lacing, right through to the end of the session. The smell is Wheat dominated but I can also sense clove, banana, and maybe some dark fruit? The taste on first sip kind of surprised me as I’m getting a lot of roasted malt and grain. After that, the fruitiness moves in with a good plum and banana presence and the clove, that I noted in the nose, finally shows up adding some most welcome complexity. I like this and I could drink more. Bottom line: Plenty of flavour in this Dunkel Weizen....I can easily recommend it.

God awful. Couldn’t drink it and that is saying something. Feels like jagermaister of beer, your stomach starts to digest right away. Very awful feeling.

M_Sack (621) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Deep Amber, frothy off white head that dissipates quite quickly. Banana, bubblegum, spice and caramel aromas. Rich mouthfeel displaying deep caramel, banana and clove. Touch of sweetness cleaned up by the sourness of the wheat. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tomada de grifo en el Kraken. Poco ocura para una Dunkel. Se queda entre rubia y negra. Aroma a rubia de trigo. Espuma blanca cerrada. Esperaba mas de esta casa. Muy bebible. Si no es x el color diria que estoy tomando una rubia de trigo

Bavarian_Beer (49) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2016
500ml bottle from Germany Pours a hazy light brown body with a massive tan head. Aroma is yeast, banana with some cloves-hints and apple. Tastes is quite malty, with the aroma notes making themselves known. Lively carbonated and medium bodied palate. Ends in a quick yeasty finish. Refreshing and really good!

RaijinSen (351) - POLAND - JAN 24, 2016
Pours murky orange colour with a nice, dense head. Aroma of ground cloves, banana, citrus, a hint of caramel. Fizzy and slightly sour in the taste with solid malty backbone and the notes present in the aroma, all in a perfect balance. Really good.

Freaky_tiki (1049) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2016
Murky & dark in the glass with a lush cap of white foam on the surface. Silky smooth in the mouth. Melodic mix of green apples, banana popsicles, ground clove, wheat. Words that come to mind while drinking the are: precision, balance, tasty, & more please. Great way to start a mid-week after work session. Recommended.
