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

Just drank it and now enjoying Jamil Zainasheff’s show on the style. He recommends that homebrewers go a little overboard if they want to win a competition, as people expect the dunkelweizens to be heavier than they typically are. I definitely enjoyed this one, Clove banana bubblegum esters... body texture carbonation. It’s obviously a good beer from every aspect. If you like the Hefes you’ll love this one, if not you’ll hate it. Simple. We’re so lucky these have survived the times.

Pours a cloudy brown with an off white head. Aromas of malt and dried fruit. Taste the same with some banana and fig flavors. A little smoke at the finish. Very smooth and dry finish. Light to medium mouth feel with a thin film on top and light lacing.

Light brown with amber tinge, large head that shrinks fairly rapidly. Aroma is banana, clove, pastry. Taste is banana, bubblegum, belgian yeast, caramel, gingerbread. Luxurious palate much like the hefeweisen, with a similar flavour profile. Very sweet and desserty. I’ll take the hefeweisen over this on most days, but there’s not a lot of distance separating the two.

Gehbe (226) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - SEP 3, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2016 Cloudy deep amber with a huge offwhite head. Nose of caramel, baguette and crust, wheat, banana, some fruity and zesty notes, hints of spice, candy, smoke, yeast. Light to medium sweetness and tartness, hints of bitterness on finish. Smooth creamy and oily texture, medium body, high carbonation, extremely drinkable. Nice complexity and too damn drinkable!

Hazy brown color with big frothy head. Bananas and sweet malts in aroma. Taste follows the aroma with lots of sweet malts combined with bananas and yeast. Enjoyable weizen
