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.

Excellent example of a dunkelweizen. Full aroma and flavour, goes down very smooth. Nice aroma of banana.

Pours a hazy brown with a large off-white head, a few floaties. Aroma of banana, caramel, wheat, beautiful. Nice flavor, doesn’t quite live up to the aroma however. Very nice.

Pretty much the defineition of the style, this looks cool, maybe neon brown? Very sweet and smooth it is a nice change of pace on a summer night for a pale ale fan like myself.

Meatmallet (126) - Salem, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Murky light brown with a thick white head. Smells like banana, cinnamon, and yeast, very sweet smelling. A little carmel and molasses in the beginning turns to banana bread at the end. .

SamGamgee (2585) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAY 22, 2008
50cl bottle. Opaque brown with a big creamy head. Chocolate-chip banana bread aroma. Brown sugar, banana, slight tart crisp finish. Light, but creamy and filling moughfeel. Nice balanced flavors. Good stuff, but a little on the light side, and not quite as drinkable as their regular hef, due to the added brown sugar sweetness.

pivnizub (10905) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2008
Bottle: A bit unclear, chestnut-amber coloured, bigger, creamy off-white head; cacao-powder and nutmeg in the dark-malty and fruity nose; moderate sweet-sourish flavour, medium bodied, soft MF; nutmeg again in the drier, malty-fruity finish. Pleasant Dunkel-Weizen..............

3.5
McGarnigle (656) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Hazy amber. Big banana scent with spices as well. Great head. Compared with W’s regular hefe, this is less yeasty and more malty, but only in the aftertaste does it really taste of toffee, cocoa, etc. Main flavor is slightly sour. Good body, tight fizz.

3.8
GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2008
Bottle. Cloudy reddish-orange with a huge foamy white head. Aroma of banana and spice with a bit of caramel and pineapple. Soft and creamy body, fairly low carbonation. Flavour of banana and malt off the top, with some nice clove notes coming though along with a faint yeastiness in the finish. Flavour lingers very nicely, and builds in spiciness as it warms. Nice, I quite liked this.

3.3
Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle. Cloudy brown with uberthick foamy head. Aroma of grilled banana, ginger ale, random tropical fruit. Thin, watery. Yeasty finish. Dry and light. Some dried banana flavors. Solid but seen better.
