COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our dark wheat beer is impressive with its creamy white foam. A fruity-fresh sweetness and hints of mature bananas harmonise with delicious flavours of roasted malt, sparkling and full-bodied with a light caramel taste on the first sip. An excellent accompaniment from hearty meals and game to chocolate and nut desserts. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

I absolutely love dark wheat beers and this did not disappoint. Bottled at Effin Gruven, I had 2 of these for the night cap just catching up with an old friend, great beer to chill with. Goes down smooth with a heavy bready flavor, heavy lacing, heavy heavy, loved it.

Mindwarp (309) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2017
Pours a dark dirty gold with a big white head. The aroma is a banana and a slight hint of clove. Des follows the nose. Overall this is really good I'm not much into this style but I could drink us again.

jjsint (3534) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2017
Bottle at Puzzles?, Peterborough. Pours tan and hazy, with a wisp of white head. Overpowering banana aroma with a touch of potpourri hidden in the yeast. Balanced bittersweet taste but there's a sourdough funkiness that livens up the finish. Oddly, I get a strong note of tamarind in the finish. Well-judged carbonation. Kicks the Hefe into touch.

Maris (1598) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2017
From a 500ml bottle on 17/12/2017. Pours a cloudy amber with a biggish head. the nose features sweet malt a light banana. The flavour gives you a bit of caramel and banana, with hints of spice and fruit, and a very gentle bitterness. medium bodied with moderate to average carbonation. Quite pleasant.

Rhombic (154) - Elx, SPAIN - DEC 10, 2017
Bottle. Pours pale brown with beautiful pale tan head, very carbonated. Fruity and creamy aromas, sweetcorn and malty. The flavours are similar in nature, mild, cerealy, with a nice celeriac-like aftertaste that is in fact a positive aspect. Refreshing and delightful. Pretty watery, short finish... could have done with a better texture. Good beer after all.

bytemesis (9349) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 9, 2017
Bottle. Pours hazy hazel, large fluffy beige head, dispatching slowly with good lacing. Aroma is banana, clove, hints of dust and lemon. Flavor is light sweet, very light bitter, wheat, banana, bubblegum. Medium body. Hugely drinkable

Cavie (4851) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2017
Bottle. Cloudy/hazy appearance. Some sediment. Some orange highlights, light brown color. Rocky offwhite head. Clove and banana on the aroma. Yeast character comes through. Low caramel malt. Bready sweet notes in the flavor. Banana yeast phenols. Yeast forward balance. Pretty good example.

biilz (238) - SPAIN - NOV 16, 2017
Лично для меня абсолютно лучшее темное пшеничное пиво. Аромат классического Дункельвайзена, отличный запах пшеницы, немного хлеба. Вкус также насыщен наивкуснейший пшеничкой. Также чувствуется легкая карамельная сладость и черный хлеб. Пиво очень питкое с идеальной кремовой пеной. Послевкусие безумно мягкое хоть и слегка слабоватое. Но в итоге почти идеальное пиво из Германии.

3.4
dynamiteninja (1895) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2017
Bottle. Large cream colour head. Well carbonated hazy amber brown body. Wheat, spice, digestive biscuit, bubblegum, strawberries, banoffee pie, whiff of alcohol, sour cherries. Caramel and green apple. Overripe banana. Gentle alkaline and sweet taste. Slight sourness. Very refreshing. Dry finish.
