Reading other ratings i wonder is this is the beer we had.This was a smoked one.
Pours hazy copper with frothy off white head. Malty, smoky, raisins, ripe fruit nose. Taste follows the nose. Little smoked, not excesive.

AshtonMcCobb (6068) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 18, 2017
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Past its BBD. Appearance - amber to brown with a decent head. Nose - toffee and orange. Banana esters lurking. Taste - more banana and toffee with just a touch of orange on edge. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly elegant finish. Overall - good example of the style.

Flipp82 (18) - - DEC 17, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2016 Buona birra perfettamente nello stile. Il profumo tipico di dunkelweizen. Poco citrico, un po speziato e abbastanza maltoso. Il cappello di schiuma si dissolve un po troppo rapidamente ma in generale molto scorrevole. Birra ben fatta.

gegwilson (3575) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2016
Bottle from Pix in the craft beer advent calendar. Pours a pretty murky brown colour with a thin cream head. Toasty wheat aroma. The taste has buttered toast with spice, a hint of clove and a touch of chocolate and banana. Ok.

tmrmwel (1918) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2016
Bottle, enjoyed one month before bbd. Pours cloudy brown, with an enormous creamy, off white head. Aroma is light yeasty, with wheaty notes, banana cake and chocolate. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is light yeast with a wheaty sting, and slightly burned malts with bread, chocolate and toffee. Nice, lingering bready sweetness, with high drinkability.

tom10101 (5749) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 15, 2016
On tap at Le Saint-Bock. Cloudy reddish-brown with a small beige head, some retention, leaving little lacing. Aroma is mostly of banana with mild spiciness, toasted malts, red berries and earthy/mineral notes. Taste is slightly acidic with bananas, toasted malts, moderate spiciness, earthy/mineral notes, red fruits/berries and mild bitterness. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Fruity and earthy finish. Pretty good Dunkelweizen. The light body and acidic notes makes the drinkability quite high but its also quite flavorful. Lacks body a bit.

50cl @ tap. Buon arome, colore ambrato (sempre se mi han servito la birra giusta ahahah). Si beve bene, come al solito birrificio italiano fa buone birre.
