rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - JUN 24, 2012
Pours a cloudy brown-orange, huge beige head, high carbonation. Aroma: Cloves, malt, hints of orange, caramel. Palate: Thin for a weizen. Watery, kinda flat. Oily. Blech. Taste: Not as sweet as most weizens. Not much flavour there either. Ugh. Worst dunkelweizen I’ve had.

Maris (1588) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2017
From a 500ml bottle on 2/9/2017. Pours brown with a small head. Has a mild nose of clove and banana. Flavour wise, there's mild caramel and roasted malt, typical wheat notes, including more clove and banana, and finished off by a mild, slightly sour, spicy bitterness. Medium bodied with quite lively carbonation. Not bad if a little messy.

ALLOVATE (3063) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2017
Deep, tawny chestnut body and misty just from the small amount of yeast in the bottle. Big, tight head of tanned foam that lasts and laces well. Cinnamon spiced apple and fresh baked banana bread hits the nose first. From there on it cedes notes of cow-pat, damp loam, stewed rhubarb and plums, and plastic-like phenols. Effervescent but light on the palate. Dowdy, drabby malts dominate. Sour malt sides and lastingly so. Quite nutty, bready and yeasty with a good amount of clove-like and plastic-like phenols. Low banana but it mostly tastes of overcooked, caramelised banana cake in the finish. Mild chocolate note. Dry and sour overall but has enough yeast and malt nuances to pick it up. Not bad, not great!!! (50cL, BB 20/04/18, The Beer Store, Jandakot)

AleMuse25 (201) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAY 29, 2017
Kolor czerwono-brązowy, ładna piana. Zapach: skórka od chleba i lekki pumpernikiel. Piwo kwaśne ale przyjemne, coś a la kwas chlebowy.

vinivini (3011) - Gomel, BELARUS - APR 8, 2017
Chestnut brown, hazy, tall beige head. The aroma is dark malts, yeast, fruit. Light body. Yeasty taste provides notable fruity sourness. Additional caramel, roast, spice. Mediocre by style standards.
