Cloudy light brown. Dirty fruit aroma. Dry bland with a slight bannana but not enough. Very lightly spiced flavor. Wouldn’t get this again. rmussman (1701) - California, USA - MAR 2, 2007
Sampled last weekend. Compared to the regular Franziskaner, taste is a lot more sweet. Aroma is similar but appearance is a lot darker brown than normal. Mouthfeel is smooth and consistant with the regular brew. Flavor is more sweet and a little more malty. A great brew but I would probably stick with the regular if I had my choice.

Very good weissbier Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2007
Sweet, ripe banana in the aroma perhaps even some nuts and... sweet pastries? Surprisingly transparent and much less cloudy than the blonde variety.
The taste reminds me a lot of ice cream I often had as a kid: banana, chocolate and almonds. Really! Might be a slight hint of citrus there too.
It feels a bit thin on the palate and the complexity isn’t off the scale, but still, it feels like they’ve hit a pretty good compromise between an easy drinking and refreshing brew and something you can delve into.
Solid and pleasant if not great or spectacular. Ridedom33 (37) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Pours nicely. But i hated the smell. I hated the taste. I just couldnt bring myself to like it.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 By far not the best Dunkel Hefe that I have had and for me this lacks the body of other examples.....but don’t get me wrong this is drinkable.

Butterscotch, molasses, and fruits in the aroma. Muddy brown appearance with small lasting head. Starts with foam on the palate finishes bitter. gak111 (3) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 18, 2007 does not count
Pours Dark Murky brown with biscuit large colored head. Very malty aroma, mainly a roasted nutty scent. Medium body and smooth going down. Strong flavor of malt - very complex, with banana and spices. Cajun (534) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - FEB 15, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2016 Bottle - Pours coudy gold, soapy white head. Yeast in the nose with banana and wheat malt. Flavors of fluffy pancakes, bananas, cloves, bubblegum, yeast, fruity, with a mild hops ending. C’est bon! faroeviking (10918) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 12, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy dark brown with a beautiful big creamy fully lasting off-white head leaving a very nice good lasting lacing. Aroma of wheat and some roasty maltiness, spices, some caramel. Flavour is fresh, good wheat, dark malts, some banana, good spices. GREAT brew!
