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

Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a tall glass. Pours cloudy honey. Leaves an off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is mild hops, oatmeal, and wheat with notes of citrus. Flavour is sour mash, wheat, coriander, orange, and spice. There is a long finish with a chorus of hops.

500 ml. bottle sampled @ Barley Legal Tasting Room. Thanks to Kraddel! Reddish dark amber, tanned head. Smell is pure fish guts mixed with lots of brown sugar & brown banana. Taste is same, lots of fish guts, bread, oodles of brown sugar, sweet spices, brown banana. Very fizzy. Far too much fish guts for my liking maybe age can get rid of that but for now as it is fresh, this is far too much.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a weizen glass. The appearance had a nice dark brown color with a three finger white foamy head that moderately dissipated and left a great deal of foamy white lacing sticking finely to the glass. The smell had a wonderful amount of sweet sticky chocolate to coat over some light banana along with some sweet German malts. I also get some light cinnamon as the beer warms up a bit. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors to town and made a super nice sweet yet still had that slight cinnamon spice underneath. On the palate, this one sat right at a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about this one. The carbonation was good for the style and for me as it was just right on par all around. Overall, what a nice dunkelweizen well worth having again.

50cl bottle thanks to ruigo. Color is hazy dark brown, with medium initial head, but constant. Aroma is very strong to cloves, some yeast, bread and banana. Medium carbonation and medium body. Taste is low sweet and low bitterness. Aftertaste is short and low sweetness. Expected much better...

An excellent dunked from a solid German brewery. An excellent beer to cheer on Germany as they took on Portugal in the 2014 World Cup!
