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

Pours cloudy brown, smooth mouth feel. Deep fruity and malt flavours, not a bad beer at all.

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
Classic Bavarian Dunkelweizen with rocky, cream white head and warm golden brown colour, hazy as expected. Gentle, complex bouquet of pear, banana, plums, chocolate, bready yeast; velvety palate, soft and fruity, nutty and chocolatey malts, subtle and elegant wheat sourishness in the finish with a brief, mild hop accent. Exemplary.

This is a swampy little hefeweissbier. Sweet but not too sweet. I don’t normally like banana bread, but this is what I wish it tasted like. Is there a better example of the style?

Dark brown color with a big long lasting white foamy head. Aroma is sweet with notes of chocolate, banana and malt. The taste is also sweet with notes of caramel, cinnamon and malt.

Zoret (75) - Badalona, SPAIN - SEP 10, 2014
Aromes de pa i plàtan, també hi trobo pera, briox, sucre, llaminadura i acidesa. En boca destaca mes el malt que el llevat que es mostra amb un final especiat.

Bottle. Light tan. Big banana clove spice with rich malts, toast, wheat. Low carb. Sugary aftertaste. Decent, not my favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light brown, with a formidable white head. Banana, malt and wheat. Flavour adds bread and yeast. Overall, very well done.

Bottle bought at the Weihenstephaner bottle shop at the brewery in Freising/Germany. Overall a delicious hefeweizen dunkel with a lot of caramel and cocoa. Very refreshing and tasty.

mikkellund42 (546) - DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours opaque tea brown with medium white foamy head. Aroma is malt, banana, cloves, yoghurt and yellow winegums. Taste is light acidic, medium sweet and light bitter. Body is light milky and light chalky with sparkling carbonation. Finish is sweet and a bit short with notes of caramel, malt, brown sugar, banana, pineapple and spice. Well balanced.

Love this easy drinking beer. A little bit more complexity compared to the "regular" weißbeer. Nice banana aroma. Flavor has the same with a touch of dark malt. A bit of gum and allspice as well. So smooth. I like this.
