COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our dark wheat beer is impressive with its creamy white foam. A fruity-fresh sweetness and hints of mature bananas harmonise with delicious flavours of roasted malt, sparkling and full-bodied with a light caramel taste on the first sip. An excellent accompaniment from hearty meals and game to chocolate and nut desserts. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

dmtroyer (431) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2008
500ml. Pours hazy dark brown with light brown highlights. Amazingly dense, fluffy off-white head... just like the hefeweizen from weihenstephaner. Nose is caramel apple with some dirt and grass mixed in the bunch. Body is similar, adds a bit more sweetness and a viscous mouthfeel that really rounds out this beer well. Everyone has that first quirky beer that no else liked but you, this was that beer for me whilst growing up.

Rated:june 2007
Bottle brown, 500 ml
Appearance: Head is cloudy, creamy, very big, leaving some lacing, dirty white colour, body is full, hazy or almoast cloudy, mild, soft brown in colour.
Aroma: Creamy, banana, yeasts, malts, malted barley and wheat, very soft alcoholic aroma, almost non existant, a little bit toasty but very minute, rather typical aroma of wheat beer, some hints of mild chockolate.
Flavour: Very mild, the carbonation on palate is noticable, yeast, wheat, some toastyness rather than roastiness, beer is very mellow and mild, in flavour there is a trace of bisquites, some hints of chockolate, flavour is not harsh or strong.
Palate: Quite wheaty, tangy, some skunkness of malts, not much of wheat, rther poor, much worse as compar to Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier. Aftertaste is rather poor and quite nasty.

kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Pours cloudy brown, witha fizzy 2 inch foam head. Aroma of medium wheat malt, clean water, and yeast. Flavor is medium/light, grassy, wheat, but full bodied. Mouthfeel is a little fizzy. Really damn good beer, like a lighter dunkel which is perfect for me.

Miksu (5053) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - MAY 4, 2008
0.5 l bottle. Hazy brown amber color with fluffy beige head. Sweetish aroma with clove, vanilla, caramel, bread and hint of banana. Bready and wheaty flavor with clove, pepper, caramel, banana and tart fruits. A bit watery palate. Im not a fan of dunkel weizens and also in this case the standard weizen from Weihenstephan is much better.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2008 Bottle pours a slight hazy honey amber color with a huge foamy beige head. Looks great and smells great too. Aroma of wheat, yeast, banana, malt, and spices. Delicious flavor of caramel malt, banana, wheat, and cloves. Smooth mouthfeel.

Lothore (644) - California, USA - APR 27, 2008
A- Pours an unfiltered dark caramel color with a massive, creamy head. The head retains for quite a while and leaves lacing as it falls. S- Smell is a very sweet, strong banana scent with hints of wheat and darker fruits. T- Taste seems a bit anticlimatic in that it isnt nearly as flavorful as the nose lets on. Slight banana sweetness. M- Something about the mouthfeel on this brew really rubs me the wrong way. A bit undercarbonated and leaves a sticky sweet coating on the inside of my mouth. D- This beer seems like it would be pretty drinkable in that it is not too offensive but its not nearly as flavorful as I was expecting. None the less it seems to be a good thirst quencher
