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

Very similar to the sweet taste of the hefeweizen leicht, but with a little more substance, thus, i found this beer to be quite the pleasant amalgamation of sweetness and bitterness

Aroma: yeasty, sour; Appearance: dark brown with frothy head and some lacing; Taste: smooth, sweet with some fruity hints; a little bit of a bite; not bad; Palate: medium body, average carbonation; finish a little bitter with some banana; Overall: decent beer; not very complex but pleasant, a bit sweet for my taste; would buy again if on sale or if on tap.

From bottle in Weizen. Pours with billowing head and cola-like hue. Aroma of ale yeast, malt and faint banana. Rich malt-driven taste leading to an inevitable slightly sweet finish.

Butelka, warka do 2/09/16. Bardzo ladna piana, dosc jasme jak na styl piwo. Aromaty, to przede wszystkim mega intensywne, dojrzale banany. Tak intensywnych chyba jeszcze nie mialem okazji... Poza nimi sa tez gozdziki i delikatne nutki jakichs wisni czy sliwek (swiezych), miodu czy karmelu... Moze chwilami chleba... Moze nie jest to jakas bardzo wyszukana paleta, ale niewatpliwie bardzo mila. W ustach jest bardzo duzo slodyczy... Takiej bananowej :) jest troche kwaskowatosci pszenicznej. Goryczki malo, sladowo, ale nadal wyczuwalna przyprawowosc ja niejako zastepuje. Bardzo duzo ciala, mozna sie najesc tym piwem. Jak dla mnie: najlepszy dotad probowany niemiecki stylowo weizen. Jak widac nie zawsze rewolucyjnosc przebija tradycje ;) Klasa

2015/11/14 - I must have had this beer a dozen or more times. Not sure how it fell through the cracks without being rated, but here goes. Pours a cloudy brown syrup colour with a thin, foamy, white head that lingers as a film and leaves mild lacing. Aroma is wheat, banana, clove, bubblegum, caramel, dark fruits and sweet bread. Taste follows nose; caramel, bread, wheat, banana and clove. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky with sharp carbonation and a crisp finish. The measuring stick for Dunkelweizens. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bozo_skeleton (823) - Grenoble, FRANCE - NOV 10, 2015
Ambrée un peu trouble, carbo faible, petit collet persistant. Aromes fruités, banane, caramel, pain. Corps moyen, texture legerement soyeuse, longueur moyenne sur une finale caramel. Loin d’être aussi marquante que la Vitus
