OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 14, 2013
A - Pours a cloudy honey brown. A mounded 2 finger off-white head that sinks very slow creating a thick ceiling and impressive lacing. S - Yeasty banana bread, very doughy. Lots of wheat with notes of clove and bubblegum. T - Follows the nose with moist banana bread, sweet with clove and a thick wheat backbone. Hints of caramel, berries, and slight nuttiness in the middle. Finishes with a bit more grain in the malt M - Silky smooth and creamy. Tight but low carbonation with a light to medium body. The mouthfeel is perfect! Very elegant flavors and seems to have great balance with the flavors. The wheat still shines and the esters seem perfectly placed. This beer will leave you wanting more.

Tomada de grifo en el Kraken. Poco ocura para una Dunkel. Se queda entre rubia y negra. Aroma a rubia de trigo. Espuma blanca cerrada. Esperaba mas de esta casa. Muy bebible. Si no es x el color diria que estoy tomando una rubia de trigo

500ml bottle from Germany Pours a hazy light brown body with a massive tan head. Aroma is yeast, banana with some cloves-hints and apple. Tastes is quite malty, with the aroma notes making themselves known. Lively carbonated and medium bodied palate. Ends in a quick yeasty finish. Refreshing and really good!

RaijinSen (259) - POLAND - JAN 24, 2016
Pours murky orange colour with a nice, dense head. Aroma of ground cloves, banana, citrus, a hint of caramel. Fizzy and slightly sour in the taste with solid malty backbone and the notes present in the aroma, all in a perfect balance. Really good.

Freaky_tiki (894) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2016
Murky & dark in the glass with a lush cap of white foam on the surface. Silky smooth in the mouth. Melodic mix of green apples, banana popsicles, ground clove, wheat. Words that come to mind while drinking the are: precision, balance, tasty, & more please. Great way to start a mid-week after work session. Recommended.

Aroma is strong banana, not to complex. The taste is sweet with some wheat and a lot of banana. My second dunkel (I think) and its just not my style of beer....

Hammy78 (918) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle picked up at Consumers beverages Niagara Falls. Pours a cloudy deep copper, massive white head, loads of clumpy lace piles. Nose is sweet, fruity. Tastes sweet, light, but malty, a little beer that fades fast. Really tasty, and sessionsable.

Butelka 0,5l Pite pierwszy raz w browarze we Freising ok.1998r, posiadam kufel. Teraz ponawiam próbę z oceną. Mam wielki sentyment do tego piwa. Kolor ciemny nieprzejrzysty, piana średnia, mocna. Aromat bananów i lekki goździków, smak bananów i suszonych owoców z dominacją śliwek, lekka kwaskowatość. Średnia goryczka, dużo ciała, bardzo dobry weizen ze wskazaniem na ten sprzed prawie dwudziestu lat we Freising. Klasyka.
