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

Robe brune, un peu pâle, avec des reflets orangés. Une belle mousse fine et tenace coiffe le verre. Nez de pommes (rappelle un peu le cidre), de bananes et d’épices. Sur la langue, le côté malté prend plus de place avec une touche de caramel et de fruits rouges. La touche banane-levure revient nous charmer en post-goût. Après avoir goûté la Kristall, la Hefeweissbier et maintenant la Dunkel de Weihenstephaner, je peux dire que j’apprécie grandement cette gamme de produits comme une excellente déclinaison de trois styles sur une base commune.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a weizen glass. The appearance had a nice dark brown color with a three finger white foamy head that moderately dissipated and left a great deal of foamy white lacing sticking finely to the glass. The smell had a wonderful amount of sweet sticky chocolate to coat over some light banana along with some sweet German malts. I also get some light cinnamon as the beer warms up a bit. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors to town and made a super nice sweet yet still had that slight cinnamon spice underneath. On the palate, this one sat right at a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about this one. The carbonation was good for the style and for me as it was just right on par all around. Overall, what a nice dunkelweizen well worth having again.

50cl bottle thanks to ruigo. Color is hazy dark brown, with medium initial head, but constant. Aroma is very strong to cloves, some yeast, bread and banana. Medium carbonation and medium body. Taste is low sweet and low bitterness. Aftertaste is short and low sweetness. Expected much better...

An excellent dunked from a solid German brewery. An excellent beer to cheer on Germany as they took on Portugal in the 2014 World Cup!

Poured from a 500ml bottle, swirled last bit to rouse sediment. The aroma is subtle, yeast, banana, clove, bready. The flavor is clove, spicy, bready, malty, light banana. Solid beer.
