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

Bottle- Pours cloudy and deep brown with a huge, effervescent white head. On the nose is toffee, cherry, dark fruit, brown sugar, bubblegum, red licorice, and banana. Taste-wise we have caramel fudge, plum, raisin, oak, dark chocolate, vanilla, lemon, bubblegum, spice, and tropical fruit esters. Mouth feel is thick and creamy with high carbonation. Finish is dry and earthy leaving tobacco, citrus, bubblegum and pineapple. Nice balance between malty caramel and fruity/yeasty flavours. Really liked it!

Bottle at home, 19th October 14. Pours a huge annoying head, pretty carbonated, the beer is dark. Aroma is a little banana and yeast, some sweetness. Taste is a watery banana, yeasty blend with a little spice, not bad

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml bottle poured in its own weizen glass. A - Big fluffy bubbled aired tan head. Good retention and many lacings formed and left in the glass. Cloudy chestnut color S - Smells pretty much like a hefeweizen: The combination of banana and cloves and also very bready to the nose. The difference is the sweet caramel and honey in the end. Delicious T - The taste is much more toffee caramel, caramel malts and roasted malts. Some banana esters and brown bread. Very light bitterness M - Medium and bit molasses body. Medium carbonation. Dry taste and light bitterness. Very pleasant and drinkable O - Delicious as expected from a Weihenstephaner. Refreshing and delicious [ BA Review @ 6/11/2011 ]

Pours a cloudy light brown, with a pillowy white head. Aroma includes notes of banana, cloves, and spices. Tasting notes include banana, fruits, spices, and is quite dry. Not bad at all!

andrewje41 (511) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle pour. Pours a really cloudy caramel color with a mild banana bread like aroma. Soft caramel and banana flavors with a nice malty background. Semi wheat finish as expected. Interesting beer here. Enjoyed this for sure.

Morboso (60) - ECUADOR - OCT 7, 2014
Aroma pugent dried sweet bananas, can’t help but feeling it is a bit artificial. Nice colour, tast like the artificial sweet dried bananas which overpowers the beer. But interesting enough and 5.2 gives it a little, how you say in English, a little bang bang? I don’t know how this could be rated so high, its interesting but imagine if this beer was the norm, and you drank it all the time, then even Fosters lager would taste good.

Bahumat (122) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
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.
