COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With its amber-mahogany coloring and streaked with fine top-fermented yeast, this beer has a fine, persistent head that adheres well to the glass. It is pleasantly fruity with a typical top-fermented smell, an aroma of clove and nutmeg apple tantalizes the nose. On the tongue it is fresh, clean, full-bodied, harmonious and well-balanced. It finishes with a light, delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a sour impression.

garthicus (2925) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 25, 2007
Bottle, golden brown with a hint of haze, a sweet aroma with a grass/hay hint. This has a fruity-fresh taste with a definite wheat flavor. Very enjoyable

Dacrza (961) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 24, 2007
500ml bottle...picture perfect brownish-orange (yeah, itís Cleveland f-ball season soon!) with a head that thickly sits and dissipates evenly...clove is evident and pleasant, and I have (as seemingly always with weizens) a hint of banana?....the mouthfeel may be among the softest Iíve sampled...the refeshing aspect of this beer is difficult to quantify...a brilliantly drinkable beer, more than at home in the humid August evenings...

barncatmatt (2285) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2007
500 ml bottle. pours amber/brown with a big white head. aromas of bananas and spices. aromas come alive as it warms. flavours are sweet and spicy. complex with noticeable wheat, malt, hops and spice. very drinkable and an awesome example of the style.

3.4
Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 15, 2007
Purs out quite a dark brown-amber with a medium, loose head. Slight hefeweizen banana fermentation characteristics with some spice, wheat malt, and caramel. Flavor is very similar though a bit amped up with some additional fruit. Quite light and somewhat thin despite all thatís going on here--though it does still manage to maintain good balance. This is a good beer: subtle, reserved, and somewhat austere for the style--not a bad thing.

3.6
dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2007
This is my 200th rating! This beer pours a cloudy amber/deep brown with a large off white head leaving no lacing down the sides. There is a light aroma of cloves, bananas, and coriander. The taste is emulates this too! Although, like the previous poster said, the flavors do fall off very quickly which I didnít like. But all in all this is a very good beer. Cheers!

Muddy amber color that lightens towards the bottom of the glass. Fluffy white head that has pretty decent staying power. Aroma is of yeast and cloves. Mouthfeel is relatively soft meaning little lasting carbonation. The taste is disappointing. It tastes like a Paulaner Light (if something like that existed).

3.5
bhensonb (15096) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 13, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of banana, clove and yeast. Hazy amber color with an off-white head that is multifingered. Full bodied; creamy carbonation. Flavors of banana, clove, coriander, and maybe some light citrus or apple. The finish is relatively dry, and the banana and clove are right there, but it ends a with a little sour. Very refreshing.

3.4
demitriustown (1191) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2007
Bottle into wiezen glass. Pours a murky brownish/ orange with a full sized well carbonated head that lingers for a short while. Aroma is orange, coriander, bubble gum, and some well rounded wheat textures. Actually smells really refreshing on this hot summer day. Taste falls short. You get the cloves, carbonation, orange in the first couple seconds of the sip, but it all falls flat and all you feel in the aftertaste is a slight twinge of orange and light bubble on the back of your tongue. Overall, Looks and smells great, Taste is clean crisp but very short lived, Palate lightly carbonated. Itís an Ok Dunkelweizen nothing to get really amped up about.
