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.

Indulgence (141) - Ajo, Arizona, USA - JUL 11, 2008
The aroma is caramelized orange zest and mild dried dark fruits with some mild herbal spice, it has a nice burnt orange cloudy body with a 2 finger white head, lacing is moderate, tastes like a hefe with a vinous wine like character, like an earthy spanish tempranillo with the citrus zest and spice. I give this good marks because it’s better to me than a regular hefe, which isn’t my favorit style unfortunately. It failed my kit-kat test though. :(

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Bottle. Poured a brownish see-thru color with lots of foamy head, good lacing too. The aroma has raisins, brown sugar, malt, yeast, and mild hops. The appearance is hazy red brown with a medium-large head that is persistent. The flavor has raisins, lightly toasted malt, caramel, spices, and licorice. The palate is on the thin side. This is a good tasting beer that is just too weak.

mansquito (6815) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Slightly off-white head. Cloudy muddy brown color. Mostly just the smell of a normal hefe. Pretty light-bodied. Really citrusy, mostly lemon... in the aftertaste as well. Flavour is full and badass. Little sour, especially at finish.

v64 (134) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2008
This beer is absolutely great. Wonderful malty, fruity aroma. Pours dark brown, almost completely opaque. Very large, foamy head, lasts a while. Delicious malt flavor, fruity overtones. A little bit of bitterness, not much, mostly sweet. Surprisingly full bodied. Feels good in the mouth too. One of my favorites, highly recommended.

Ober (2819) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2008
A hazy amber colored beer with a huge rocky foamed white head. It stays foor a long time. The aroma of roasted malt, sweet fruity and a little spicey. The taste of a little caramel with roasted malts, banana, a little sweet and bitter. There is almost no aftertaste.

subcell (96) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2008
I am surprised at other peoples ratings on this as this is a lovely Dunkel Weissen. This had beautiful color and a nice nose. It had a nice caramel sweetness and full body that made this very enjoyable for me.

blutt59 (6576) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2008
bottle, tan head with brown pour, very similar to the hefe with a nutty caramel flavor added, very good

3.7
LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 27, 2008
Draft - Brown beer with big tan head. Standard hefe aroma prhaps a bit more bready than normal. This is an excellent dunkel Hefe. The sweet wheat flavors are here without the over abundance of caramel sweetness that the dark malt can sometimes bring.

mmmbeer (1428) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2008
Pint bottle poured into my trusty stein-poured semi murky brownish orange, a very light head big enough to jump in and land safely into formed and stayed around for awhile, moderate carbonation. Aroma of yeast and bread. Hits the mouth with a light-medium body, the wheat malt tastes like it was burned when dried after harvesting, clove and banana make it’s way from the mess described earlier, finish is crisp and palate cleansining. A bit odd even for me.
