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

Fatehunter (1766) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Poured into a tall hefe glass. Cloudy, copper color with three! fingers of head. Smells like ripe banana and wet hay... in the best way. Tastes like banana too. Smooth bitter taste, some malty sweetness to it. Low carbonation. Medium and sticky body. A great dunkelweizen.

jamesie1857 (1738) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2015
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe - GUSHER! - Hazy light brown body with a massive off-white head. Nose is yeast, banana with some cloves-hints and apple-peel. Tastes is quite malty, with the aroma notes making themselves known. Lively carbonated and medium bodied. Ends in a quick yeasty finish. Refreshing and really good!

Zlotta (458) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2015
0.5 l bottle from Firma Bier, best before 14/1/2016. Hazy, dark golden orange with a huge, creamy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Yeasty-spicy, slightly fruity aroma of ripe banana, nuts, cloves, some caramel. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy taste of ripe banana, caramel nuts and some clove, followed by a short, yeasty, slightly sourish and gently bitter finish. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Apart from the ugly yeast flocs a very round beer, highly quaffable. Good.

N3lson1 (601) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Drank from a nonic glass poured from a 500ml bottle. Pours a nice magohany, brown, hazy color with tons of fluffy white head. Has wonderful aromas of malts with a hint of banannas you get from the Hefeweizens. Wonderfully complex beer, sweet, and delicious!

ordybill (772) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Poured from a 500 MLK bottle into a pint glass. This beer has a fantastic amber color with a sweet and smoky aroma. A crisp palate that is very satisfying. A world class beer.

S_Side_Smitty (614) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Pours orange-brown & cloudy with a thick off white head. Aroma is sweet & estery with banana-clove and spices. Taste is heavy banana-clovey magnificence and very very smooth. There’s some faint prickly bitterness laced with spice in the mid that smooths out again at the finish. Rich and decadent overall. Nice.
