3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle. Dark mahogany pour with a tan head that slowly diminishes to a ring with lacing. Nice aroma of banana and malted chocolate. Flavors of dark malts, creamy milk chocolate, and wheat. Nutty character and a bit tangy. Very nice indeed. Flavor is delicate and yummy. I love dunkelweizens and this one is excellent. I see a rating of 0.9 in the list and I wonder, what could this person possibly like if he doesn’t like this? He musta been coma-drunk. Purchased at Total Wine & More, Jacksonville, Florida for $3.49.

Pour is a very dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is a little bit wheat and banana. Flavor is kind weak. Some chocolate and toffee to go with the wheat but nothing stands out. Its a weak hefe but black instead of yellow.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Deep brown, black cherry hues, large pillowy beige head, fairly nice lacing. Robust roasted malt nose, definitely wheaty, clove and banana is ever so slight. Somewhat thick mouthfeel, yet still spritzy and wheaty. As it warms it gets a little husky, roasted nut shells or something. Clean, very clean. A bit better than average in my opinion.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep brownish-black beer with a thin white head. Strong toasty, nutty aroma with light wheaty character as well. A bit of light toast and roast. Wheaty, bready body, spicy clove and a bit of fruitiness in back. Flavour is quite nice, soft dark toasted wheat, clovey spice. Rye-like malt character. Full-bodied, some light sourness helps lighten the body a bit. Quite a unique brew, rich creamy texture. Lingering toasty/spicy finish. A bit of minty hop flavour. Very interesting and tasty brew.

A Mes rate:
No idea where I picked this one up from. Marshmellow and cream nose. Nothing to shout about appearance wise. Taste wise you would think it a lot paler if you shut your eyes. Strong peanut butter hit then creamy with a tangy kick and buttery finish. Pretty much a peanut butter beer to me. Nothing too exciting.

Again from the store on the Autobaun. Poured fuzzy brown with huge tan head. Could eat the head with a spoon. Neat. Aroma of burnt malt with a bit of smoke. I like rich brown beers wth complex flavors and this one did not fail me. Pretty good.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Cloudy brown body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of burnt wheat, pop-corn and dare I say manure. Taste of broiled vegetables, wheat and those boxes of animal food we buy when we go to the zoo. All that in a watery body. Like all my below 1.0 ratings, drain pour. All those good ratings, who would have thought cows had access to the internet.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a dark brown color with some murky cloudiness. Hard to get all 0.5L in one bottle with the head so huge, just finished the last fraction straight from the bottle. Large pillowy head. The head lasted through the entire drink. Flavor was a bit too smoked and roasted for my likings, although the bananas and cloves were burried in the flavor. The finish was very dry, champagne-like. Can do better than this, although I’ll take a straight hefe over any dunkel hefe anyday.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown/black with a dense, spongey, off white/light gray head. Nose of wheat and toasted grains, subtle chocolate and clove. Same flavors. Medium body is bit more bubbly than balanced. Would pair excellent with bratwurst or polish sausage. Solid brew.

Wheaty banana in aroma. head isn’t real good. Taste is pretty smooth and not too wheaty at first, but there isn’t much there either. Simple, okay, but too much wheat in the end.
