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.

500ml bottle. pours hazy light brown with off white head. aroma of toasted biscuity, banana, cloves, floral hops, hints of chocolate. flavors are a bit citrusy banana, slightly toasted malt, perfumy hop flavor. full of flavor, light on the palate making this very refreshing. a perfect chilly spring or fall beer.

My 100th beer!! Pours a very hazy dark amber colour with a big white head. Has a very mality smell and a good wheaty flavor. Very easy to drink. Well balanced. It took me a few minutes at the liquer store to pick out what was going to be my 100th beer and Iím glad I didnít screw it up. I drank this out of a Weizen.

Bottle picked up from Sainsburys in Kidlington. Consumed 26.3.08 Pours murky, hazy dark amber, with a light beige big fluffy head. Some banana & spices on the nose, light fruitiness at the back of the mouth coupled with a sweet vanilla creaminess. A really nice beer.

...one of the greatest beers out there. Mixes dark malty, and mellow flavors, with a creamy taste that lingers in the head, and begs you to take another gulp. Dark dryish fruit flavors complement to the complexity of this great beer, drink it.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2008 Nice flavor. I prefer the regular hefes over the dunkels, but this one is pretty good. Nice sweet balance of the yeast, malts, and fruits- comes together nicely.

ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2008
Bottled. Pours out in a cloudy, almost opaque brown colour topped with a rich and creamy off-white foam. Cloves and banana in the aroma with touches of toasted malts and dark fruit. Medium to light-bodied with with strong notes of cloves and banana with undertones of nuts, all-spice, almonds and toasted malts. Lively carbonation, of course. Over-riped banana, cloves and toasted malts in the aftertaste Pretty good but I still looking for a Dunkelweizen that blows my socks off...

Pours a cloudy brown. Had this at a German restaurant paired with Swinehaxen (pork shank). Has the pleasant traditional aromas and flavors of a Hefeweiss like clove and banana. Noted were some toasted flavors. One of the finer examples of this style.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2008
Nice hazy dark amber color with a huge billowy head. Aroma is very sweet and malty with some subtle clove spice. The flavor is nice roasted wheat/malt with a little bit of clove/citrus spice. The palate is very nice with some good mouthfeel and solid carbonation for the style. A very nice Dunkelweizen overall.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Pours a nice hazy brown color with a wonderful creamy white head that lasts forever. Roasty aroma of wheat and malt, with a touch of spiciness and citrus. Flavor of wheat toast, with a touch of light fruitiness. Palate is a little thin, but still refreshing. Good brew.

ilovedarkbeer (2737) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2008
Pours a cloudy brown color with a massive creamy off white head that just doesnt die. Nose is of clove coriander, wheat, and some dark malt. Taste is some what bland. Roasted malt, a bit of chocolate, wheat, spice and a bit of watery mouthfeel. Really very average. I expected more for Weihenstephaner.
