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.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - JAN 17, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 This is very nice, smooth and tasty, being a less crisp, somewhat caramelly version of their Hefeweissbier, although I prefer the latter. This is hazy, somewhat dark brown amber with a huge off-white head that lasts a long time but leaves almost no lacing. The aroma is like a hefeweizen but softer, with hints of toffee and more toasty grain or even a hint of nuts along with the wheat/banana/bubblegum elements, while the bubblegum in particular is more muted and barely noticeable (compared to their light hefeweissbier, where the bubblegum is quite strong). The taste is similar, being a softer, less crisp version of the lighter beer, with less bubblegum, less bitternes, and a definite light caramel taste and smoothness. Its very nice, very easily drinkable, and flavourful, with some complexity, but not quite as satisfying as the lighter version.

dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2008
This beer pours a dirty brown with a medium tan head. The aromas are slight bananas, roasted wheat and maybe some nuts? The flavors are a littel dry with some bananas and nuts. Not one of their better beers. But it is drinkable I suppose. Cheers!

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Pours a cloudy brown with plenty of carbonation and a good sized creamy head. Aroma and taste are very similar with bread, spice, cloves and bananas. Taste also has a sweet malty finish with plenty of carbonation. One of the only dunkleweizens Ive tasted, pretty nice.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Pours a murky cider-like brown with a couple fingers of off white head. Aroma is bananna bread with tiny hints of clove, smells great! Taste is wheaty and sweet, with less of the spices in the flavor than the aroma, but still pretty nice.

Very nice dunkel. This beer is delicate, sweeter than its lighter counterpart with a slightly sweeter and nuances of sour, finish. Very sessionable.

16.9oz bottle- pours a reddish copper color. light off white head. Aroma of malts. Light, crisp and clean tasting. Very easy to drink and could have a few of these fairly easily. A good Dunkleweizen overall.
