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

This is my favorite beer that I have found traveling the world. WOW is all I can say. The slight banana aftertaste is to die for. Smooth and just perfect. I am sold on the German style after tasting this. This is my beer that I compare all others too. Finding it is a bit difficult, but worth every penny.

Das ist gut, verdammt Bier. Es ist eines der besten Biere Verdammt ich je hatte . Dieses Bier erinnert mich an eine bayerische Frauen tanzen sexy mit ihren Kleidern aus. Good job Bayern. --- Mi nombre es Juan Caja y me gusta la cerveza.

Truly one of the best unfiltered beer I’ve ever tasted in Israel so far. Recommended for people who love dark beers.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours reddish-brown with foamy white head. Taste Carmel, banana, wheat. I thought this was very good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Just an incredible dunkelweizen. It’s attractive (well, as attractive as a dark wheat beer can be), heady, and outrageously easy to drink. Seriously. A stein full of this stuff will be empty in no time. As expected with the dark color, there’s a bit more earthiness and graininess, but the sweet bubblegum flavor typical of Bavarian wheat beers comes through beautifully. Another excellent offering from the "World’s oldest brewery."

This is one of my all-time favourite beers. Smells like a fruit-garden, tastes like sweet bread, bananas, oranges and clove. A wonderful blend, would drink this any time again.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint 0.9oz bottle into a Weizen Glass. The abv is listed on the label at 5.3% and there is no freshness date. Appearance: It has a deep hazy orange amber body with visible carbonation. A quick pour fills the glass with foam. After a minute to settle I very slowly finished pouring and ended up with a nice three finger head. The light beige head hangs on well and makes lots of cool lace patterns on the glass. Smell: Big German yeast notes rush up to fill my nose. The aroma is all about the classic banana notes with some mild clove and bready sweet malt. Taste: The best way to describe this beer is that is like banana bread with nuts and chocolate chips. The palate is a firm medium body with nice active carbonation. Notes: Outstanding!!! This beer is a work of wheat beer art.

Bottle, 0,5l. Pours hazy brown color with beautiful creamy, tan head. Typical weizen aroma, lots of banana and dough and a bit of caramel. unique rich wheat flavor, full of bananas. Full bodied, medium carbonation and a nice long aftertaste. One of the best beers I had so far.

A very clean dunkelweiss. Fuller and smoother than Sneider Weiss Original. The right amount of carbonation and earthy banana.
