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

IslandHaole (1099) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - JAN 8, 2013
A hazy copper colored beer with a beige head. Sweet malts with plenty of bready aroma and hints of some noble hops. Sweet malt & yeast with some caramel tastes, sticky feel. Haven’t had this style for quite some time, seems like visiting a friend you haven’t seen for a while.

Saeglopur (1112) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - AUG 18, 2015
500 ml bottle from a supermarket.
Orange-brown, cloudy body, with a big, stable, fluffy, lacing, beige head.
Aroma of bread, dried fruits, ripe banana, spices, some nuts.
Tastes of bread, spices, banana, dried fruits, some caramel.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes spicy, bready, fruity, malty.

Very nice. Quaffable, well balanced and fully aromatic. Not on par with my favourite Dunkelweizen from Ayinger, but a very good example of the style.
