3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5l from gift pack in the LCBO. Served in the glass it came with. Appearance: Cloudy golden-brown, frothy, sparse, beige head. Aroma: Banana, cloves, orange, cinnamon, wheat. Palate: Medium bodied, smooth, medium fizziness, clean finish. Taste: sweet, very slight hint of sour in the finish. Not as complex of a flavour as I’d hoped for.

Classic banana and clove in the nose, allied with wheat a hint of pumpernickel/rye bread. Waxy lemon zest and caramel in the mouth. Quite possibly the best dunkel weizen out there - best I can remember - and certainly one that actually tastes like a weizen notwithstanding it is a dunkel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Jun ’16. A 0.5 l bottle that poured a hazy caramel brown body with medium sized ivory head. Fine aroma of banana, lemon, bubblegum with weaker caramel and toasted bread. Flavor was lightly sweet, wheaty, banana, lemon, caramel and brown sugar but so surprisingly thin it left very watery impression. Moderately long finish with watery grainy finish, touched with a metal off note. Very weak, but that what it had shown was mostly fine and elegant. But anyhow, expected so much more from this one it’s indescribable with words!

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy brown color with very strong activity. Thick creamy beige 2 finger sparkly island head, lasting around 20-30 minutes, with strong legs.
Aromas of bread and fruit esters with a slightly biscuity caramel feel. Flavors of caramel, burnt sugar, lemon, grains, herbal spices. Pleasant thick grainy sourness with a sugary bread feel. Rich and super well balanced.
Smooth and creamy light to medium body with a good amount of carbonation. Well intensified finish like tasting tender bread, lightly wheaty and lemony, ending with a dash of faint spices.
Overall, as always, an excellent craft from Weihenstephaner. Complex, rich, balanced, and delicious flavors. Super fresh, sexy, and a nice well rounded body. Would drink this all day long, and forever.
