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

Pours a dark hazy gold with frothy head, aroma has a hint of...chocolate? Pretty smooth, a bit fruity, better than some.

Classic banana and clove in the nose, allied with wheat a hint of pumpernickel/rye bread. Waxy lemon zest and caramel in the mouth. Quite possibly the best dunkel weizen out there - best I can remember - and certainly one that actually tastes like a weizen notwithstanding it is a dunkel.

heavy (2662) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 19, 2016
Jun ’16. A 0.5 l bottle that poured a hazy caramel brown body with medium sized ivory head. Fine aroma of banana, lemon, bubblegum with weaker caramel and toasted bread. Flavor was lightly sweet, wheaty, banana, lemon, caramel and brown sugar but so surprisingly thin it left very watery impression. Moderately long finish with watery grainy finish, touched with a metal off note. Very weak, but that what it had shown was mostly fine and elegant. But anyhow, expected so much more from this one it’s indescribable with words!

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2016 Bottle to cup. Wheat and subtly sweet brown bread aroma. Cloudy dark brown/orange, very active with an off white, brown tinged head. Wheat, hay, biscuit, very slight lemon bitterness with caramel undertones. Medium-light body, very active carbonation.

Bierdimpfe (208) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2016
Cloudy brown color with very strong activity. Thick creamy beige 2 finger sparkly island head, lasting around 20-30 minutes, with strong legs. Aromas of bread and fruit esters with a slightly biscuity caramel feel. Flavors of caramel, burnt sugar, lemon, grains, herbal spices. Pleasant thick grainy sourness with a sugary bread feel. Rich and super well balanced. Smooth and creamy light to medium body with a good amount of carbonation. Well intensified finish like tasting tender bread, lightly wheaty and lemony, ending with a dash of faint spices. Overall, as always, an excellent craft from Weihenstephaner. Complex, rich, balanced, and delicious flavors. Super fresh, sexy, and a nice well rounded body. Would drink this all day long, and forever.

Tap at Doghouse. Pours cloudy orange with a medium white head which recedes to a foamy layer with bubble activity round the circumference. Aroma is coriander, orange zest, banana and clove. Taste is herbal coriander, orange zest, banana and a modest but pronounced citric bitterness.
