3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber. Fruity and somewhat spicy, with notes of banana. Full, lightly sweet taste with a dry and lightly bitter finish. Medium body, with a soft texture. Overall, a good dunkelweizen. However, aside from the darker colour, I did not notice any difference between this beer and the normal hefeweizen.

0,5 L bottle, served in Weihenstephaner Weizen glass. Poured cloudy chestnutty brown with a two finger off white head. Aromas of banana, cloves, caramel, bubblegum. Taste: banana, cloves, burnt toffee, wheat, vanilla, bread, jam, sweet sugar candy, caramel. Very nice malty mouthfeel. Light to medium body with a slightly dry, fruity sweet finish. Very, very good! If you like them sweet and malty this is just for you! Another enjoyable Weihenstephaner, a world class brewery! Prost meine herren!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Marrom claro, média turbidez, espuma bege de otima formação e persistência, aspecto cremoso. Aroma típico de banana, leve torrado e cravo em menor intensidade que as weiss tradicionais. Paladar de leve/médio dulçor, mínimo amargor do torrado. Corpo médio e alta carbonatação. Final mantém a impressão inical do paladar trazendo mais do cravo mas mantendo banana. Referência do estilo.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Classic banana and clove in the nose, allied with wheat a hint of pumpernickel/rye bread. Waxy lemon zest and caramel in the mouth. Quite possibly the best dunkel weizen out there - best I can remember - and certainly one that actually tastes like a weizen notwithstanding it is a dunkel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Jun ’16. A 0.5 l bottle that poured a hazy caramel brown body with medium sized ivory head. Fine aroma of banana, lemon, bubblegum with weaker caramel and toasted bread. Flavor was lightly sweet, wheaty, banana, lemon, caramel and brown sugar but so surprisingly thin it left very watery impression. Moderately long finish with watery grainy finish, touched with a metal off note. Very weak, but that what it had shown was mostly fine and elegant. But anyhow, expected so much more from this one it’s indescribable with words!
