First association is bread., but more malty. Aroma is typically Hefeweizen. Very easy to drink despite the heavy aromas. The carbonation is well-balanced. All in all a very likable beer.

Mariahilfer Dunkles Hefe Weizen
Had this 6 years ago in Hotel Zum Bären, Zell (Bavaria), a stone’s throw away from the brewery, on a hot humid day. Today is a similar day in Amsterdam with a bottle purchased from the brewery about 5 weeks ago. Color of dark caramel, naturally cloudy. A firm off white head with quite long retention. Aroma’s of caramel, banana, wheat, a bit spices. Flavor is lightly caramel-sweet, wheaty. Body could have been a tad bit fuller. All in all tasty & refreshing.

50cl swing top bottle bought at the brewery, some two and a half weeks ago. Nice milky golden-blond color. Bit rocky white head with good lace. Aroma’s: Wheat, banana, hint of sour fruit. Flavor is slightly sweet and slightly (fruity) sour. Finishes a little bit dry, but no bitterness. Not the best Hefeweizen ever, but definitely worth a try.

Mariahilfer Dunkles Hefe Weizen
Színe ködös mahagóni, egy krémes és a pohár szélén (is) megmaradó, piszkosfehér színű habbal a tetején. A picit visszafogott és fanyar illata erjedt gyümölcsös, karamellás és fűszeres. Csípősen indul, teste könnyed, de nem vizes, még pont belefér. Fanyar aromája gabonás, karamellás, citrusos, szegfűszeges hatásokat hordoz magában, az íze karamellás, banános és fűszeres. Befejezése citrusos, mogyorós és szegfűszeges (mely egy gyümölcsös-fűszeres utóízt hagy maga után). Könnyen iható, frissítő és megfelelően kiegyensúlyozott.. Szóval, rendben van.

Bügelverschlußflasche (Danke, Jonas!): Hazy, amber coloured, medium sized - slowly collapsing - off-white head; light wheaty-toasty nose with a metallic tinge; light to moderate sweetish-bitter(!) flavour, light to medium bodied; short toasty, sourish and bitter finish. Not bad, but where are the typical Weizen qualities.....?

(swing top bottle) Clear, deep golden to amber colour with a thick off-white foamy head. Sweet and slightly toasted (cara-)malty and slightly bready aroma with an aromatic dash of citric and herbal hops. Sweet flavour with a rounded level of bitterness, light to medium bodied with a smooth and well-carbonated mouthfeel. Delicately toasted cara-malty taste with shy hints of bread crusts and noble, subtle fruity hops; moderately dry and bready and slightly nutty finish with herbal hoppy spots. Quaffable and rounded brew. 10.II.10

Slightly bitter and sour flavour, light bodied with a soft and well-matured carbonation. Quite toasty malty taste with a delicate wheat-character, rounded up with mild fruity notes and phenolic spices; quite dry and slightly sour-fruity finish with a tinge of bitter tartness. Unspectacular Dunkelweizen. 24.II.10

Nice bottle. Amber brew with a gorgeous golden lacing head and fine pearling carbonation. Sweet grassy aroma. Full buttercaramel body, a hint berries, roast, toast finish, aromatic citric and grassy hops. Medium body, fine sparkly mouthfeel. A hint too much butter for me in it, otherwise a very nice Landbier.
