Although some may consider this a dunkleweiss, Unertl is actually an original style weissbier, which is a little darker than a hellesweizen and not as chocolatey as a dunkel. Natural, local spring water forms the base for a 70 percent malted wheat grist bill, well above a typical weiss concentration. A warmer temperature, top fermentation takes place in traditional, open containers using a special flocculent yeast strain developed by the family, and a small percentage of chocolate malt gives this original its deep amber color. Natural yeast sediment forms in the container due to bottle or cask conditioning, which can sometimes be a little chunky. Full, yet soft, with a rounded body, you’ll find notes of almond, soft banana, and clove. The head is creamy and generous with substantial mouth-feel. The richness of the yeast is evidenced by a silky glass cling and the finish is sweet and clean. In fact, the glass is absolutely filthy with yeast by the time you’re done--very rich in vitamin B12 and protein. Complex and subtle, it’s not only refreshing but has body enough that it never becomes too sweet. This beer is quite simply one of the finest in the world of any variety. While I first sampled this beer in Germany nearly 15 years ago, I’m thrilled that it’s recently become available in the U.S. I’ve also noted that several reviewers have this beer confused with Unertl Muhldorf, which is a completely separate brewery and product.

Federak (15) - Verona, ITALY - FEB 15, 2017
Bottiglia da 50cl. Colore bruno scuro, torbido, non molta schiuma ma abbastanza persistente e fitta, di colore bianco sporco (causato dai residui sul fondo della bottiglia (apprezzati). Aroma di lievito, tostato. Il gusto è lievemente alcolico, lievito, cereali, maltato. Palato vagamente alcolico, qualche nota di banana e liquirizia. Una buona Weiss scura, consigliata.

jaghana (5768) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JAN 29, 2017
Bottle 50cl, an amber beer with medium creamy head. Nose is on grapefruit. Aroma is malty, wheat notes, still grapefruit and ripped banana notes, good body. This should be under dunkelweizen. Finish on caramel and spices, marzipan.

Brown with little white head. Aroma is some banana, chalk, clove, lots of yeasts, little alcohol. Taste is a little chalk, lots of yeasts and alcoholic bitterness. Not full body. Thin and a little sparkly rough on the tongue. Ok, but not great.

Grumpelmies (164) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2016
Bottle. Copper/brown with a tinge of Orange. Muddy. Looks like a dirty Dunkelweizen. Great head. Aroma of bananas and yeast. Taste is bananas, citrus fruits, yeast. A little spicyness. Not as thick and heavy as some other Hefeweizen. Delicious and sessionable. Good one.

[backlog] 07-09-15 / bottle at home. Nice weizen. Good yeast strains, some banana, dried fruit, well carbonated. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 3.75/5
