First tried on tap in a Bavarian Cafe in Sydney. Very nice toffee caramel taste with a hint of banana. My first Dunkel Weissbier and definitely not my last. Having a hard time finding this in Minnesota. BelgianBeerGal (4244) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2007
.5L Bottle. Poured medium brown, with good carbonation and a foamy head that settled slowly. Great flavor and a nice beer overall. Would recommend this dunkelweizen as a good representation of the class. bebop329 (27) - USA - JAN 17, 2007
Pours a delightful cloudy medium brown color with a thick foamy head that dissapates rather quickly. A nice light mouth feel with plenty of lasting carbonation. Yummy mild nutty flavors with hints of pine and lemon. Light and easy to drink. Very tasty. skibumphishead (259) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 17, 2007
$2.10 for a bottle of this... it’s a steal... I enjoy this one out of the bottle in the summer, and I’m enjoying it now on the coldest day of year. The carbonation is high and the brown surgar and alcohol flavors dominate. yummy [email protected] (43) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 17, 2007
A nice smooth, dark, rich weissbier. The color was a deep rich brown. The flavors were nice, with the tanginess expected from weissbier. The mouthfeel, especially, was pretty much perfect--thick and creamy without lingering too much.

This bee pours a deep cloudy brown with a tall tan head leaving good lacing down th sides. On the nose this is a strong spicy wheat aroma like most of the dunkelweizens. The flavor emulates this, it is very rich smooth and good. I like this beer, it is very drinkable. Not very complex, but drinkable. Cheers!

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. zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2007
(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. jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 9, 2007
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. cperry8483 (41) - Platteville, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 8, 2007
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.
