3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy dark brown, with a thick two finger head. The head settles slowly to a thick cap, leaving behind a thick sheet of lace.
Smell; this has a very strong wheat profile, with some mild banana notes. There’s a sweet caramel malt presence that kind of overrides alot of the smells I usually associate with a hefe-weizen.
Taste; the caramel malts are there but not quite as dominant as they are in the aroma. The yeast and wheat flavors come out as well as the typical cloves you would expect, but it’s a little lacking as far as any banana flavors go. Don’t get me wrong, the bananas are there, they’re just weak enough that you have to search for them a bit. Mouthfeel is creamy and medium bodied, and would be easy to put down a few of these.

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Cloudy brown pour with a mound of tan head. Aroma is lots of wheat with some roasted malts. Flavor is very sweet and smooth at the beginning with the obligatory wheat and grainy texture in the middle. Very clean finish.

Goood sweet notes, plenty of wheat taste to drink down, I was brewing a dunkle so I made it my offering to the beer gods. Good dunkle though pretty tasty nice color and sediment.

Ah yes, the Mad Monk. The first Hefeweizen I tried and indeed the first "good" beer I’d ever had. I was tremendously impressed by this the first time I had it, but have had better Dunkels since then. Not bad and available almost everywhere.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber with a big white head. Smells of roasted caramel with a hint of yeasty hay smell. Taste is almost entirely malt but not that complex or intense. The wheaty taste comes in in the aftertaste and is nice. I enjoyed this beer a good deal.

pours murky medium brown with a large off-white head. Aroma is malty of carmel and yeast notes of leather. Flavor is sweet and carmel but balanced finishes on the bitter side and short. Light to medium bodied, watery and livley with a clean finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy caramel color like a frappe coffe with a medium-sized off-white head. Typical aroma of a hefe-weissen, fruity with notes of banana, bread and honey. Flavor was a bit tart, of lemon, watery and flatly carbonated.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy light brown/orange color. Head is big creamy white with medium retention. It laces pretty well.
Aroma is typical for a Hefe-Weizen: full of fruity esters. It shows notes of banana, vanilla, wheat and light spices. Enticing.
Taste is sweet with a slightly tart finish. It has smooth banana and vanilla flavors with soft herbal notes and a cidery hint in the end.
Very smooth, velvety mouthfeel. Finish is a bit chalky. Low carbonation. Alcohol unnoticeable. A good Dunkelweizen but probably not the best bottle.
Bought in Mendoza, Argentina

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Standard issue to look at – light chocolate brown with no head to speak of. Sweet wheat beer notes on the nose, quite attractive. Thins out a touch in the palate as some drying characters take hold. Very similar to the Schnieder in this respect but the beer remains very drinkable.
