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

Mortlach (962) - Rome, - JAN 28, 2013
28/01/2013 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al Deutsche Beer Festival. Bruna, color miele di castagno, limpida, schiuma biancastra leggera, non molto persistente. Aroma di banana e malti, caramello, leggero tostato. In bocca è delicata, ben bilanciata, note dolciastre di malto, finale leggermente amarognolo. Corpo medio-leggero, carbonazione buona. Non è il mio genere di birra, ma è indubbiamente ben fatta.

Nice! I found this one rather by accident, and it has a nice, sort of peach-ey aroma and flavor that complements the roast malts nicely. Very, very drinkable, easily a happily sessionable beer. Very nice. Would definitely consider again the next time I’m in the mood for bavarian dunkelweiss.

Rather low on flavors, although showing some of the characteristic banana notes. Mid to aftertaste is a bit watery and somewhat disappointing.

Bottle. Cloudy, amber, frothy, white foam, light sweetness, light body, thin feel, flat, & astringent finish.

It has a deep hazy orange amber body with visible carbonation. A quick pour fills the glass with foam. After a minute to settle I very slowly finished pouring and ended up with a nice three finger head. The light beige head hangs on well and makes lots of cool lace patterns on the glass. Big German yeast notes rush up to fill my nose. The aroma is all about the classic banana notes with some mild clove and bready sweet malt. The best way to describe this beer is that is like banana bread with nuts and chocolate chips. The palate is a firm medium body with nice active carbonation.

Solid. Pours cloudy orange brown with an off white head. Aroma is banana / caramel. Medium to full body, very smooth, slightly tart finish.

Alengrin (1824) - BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
Classic Bavarian Dunkelweizen with rocky, cream white head and warm golden brown colour, hazy as expected. Gentle, complex bouquet of pear, banana, plums, chocolate, bready yeast; velvety palate, soft and fruity, nutty and chocolatey malts, subtle and elegant wheat sourishness in the finish with a brief, mild hop accent. Exemplary.

adamnowek (65) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2014
This is a swampy little hefeweissbier. Sweet but not too sweet. I don’t normally like banana bread, but this is what I wish it tasted like. Is there a better example of the style?

Karstenborg (249) - DENMARK - SEP 12, 2014
Dark brown color with a big long lasting white foamy head. Aroma is sweet with notes of chocolate, banana and malt. The taste is also sweet with notes of caramel, cinnamon and malt.

Zoret (85) - Badalona, SPAIN - SEP 10, 2014
Aromes de pa i plàtan, també hi trobo pera, briox, sucre, llaminadura i acidesa. En boca destaca mes el malt que el llevat que es mostra amb un final especiat.

Bottle. Light tan. Big banana clove spice with rich malts, toast, wheat. Low carb. Sugary aftertaste. Decent, not my favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
