On tap @ the Saloon in DC. Color’s a milk-choco brown with a thick, off-white head that ain’t goin’ nowhere. Serious aroma of chocolate malt and ripe banana, wow. More bananner in flavor, roasty-malty with some root beer notes. But it’s a touch sour instead of sweet or bitter, and it finishes a bit dry. Really enjoyed this beer a lot.

Bottle. Pours a muddy brown with a good head. Smells of wheat and fruit, especially banana. Tastes too much of banana but not as overpowering as their hefe hell. Smooth.

Bottle. Pours a brown bod with a great head. Definitive aroma of yeast and solid interesting taste. I prefer other franziskaners to this one.

Pours a cloudy root beer brown with a large rocky head. The aroma is a strong banana and roasted malts. I have never sampled a beer that smells more like ripe bananas than this one. I like bananas. The mouthfeel is light, slick and soft. Very nice. The flavor follows the nose: sweet roasted malts followed by bananas and light wheat. The finish is smooth and sweet. Quite tasty.

Bottle. Beautiful muddy brown; unfiltered. Huge head. Nice aroma of honey, banana, and spice. Beer is fizzy; found it too much so. Refreshing with some present alcohol astringency. Definitely a quality Dunkelweiss.

DruncanVeasey (8401) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2007
Lightish muddy brown pour with an impressively rocky head of suds. Slightly woodsy snout with hints of toffee and banana. Buttery malt sweetness, toffee apple, banana and a pinch of clovey pepper in the finish. Faintly smoky as it warms. Quality Dunkel.

obguthr (6824) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Aroma is spicy, sour, and grainy. It pours a cloudy brown. My son says it looked like diarrhea. Thick pale head and light lacing. Taste is sour with vanilla notes. There was a biting aftertaste that was akin to radishes, but with some decently balanced hops. I expected much more.

3.7
BillKismet (4165) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Rather highly carbonated and of a hazy cider appearance. Zest wheat aroma and pleasant, but subdued yeasty notes with lightly playing sweet banana and musk. Medium-bodied with easy meld of wheat clove flavors that is quite enjoyabl.e Balance is decidedly tipped in favor of the phenolics (cloviness) rather than banana.

elmatador00 (519) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Pours a dark opaque brown with a off white head. Has nice lacing. Has hints of roasted malts, caramel, spices, citrus fruit. Finishes with a nice malt and spice flavor that sticks to the tongue.
