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.

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 (2741) - 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.

dmac (6264) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2008
500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy muddy amber brown with a largey pillowy white head. Aroma of wheat, grass, cloves and malts. Refreshing palate with lively carbonation. Flavor of wheat, brown bread and slight cloves. Refreshing wheat beer that goes down easy like a Thai hooker.

BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 6, 2008
Aroma of clove, cinnamon, and corinader, with some wheat. Pours with a huge, creamy, off-white head that sticks around. Taste is a bit watery and mouthfeel is dry, but not that bad, I have had better dunkelveizens.

Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 4, 2008
Bottled 50cl. It pours a very dark hazy orange beer with a beautiful nicely remaining creamy whitish head. The nose is wheaty with hints of mint, maple syrup, banana and apples. Very soft. No cloves detectable. Low bitterness. Medium to full bodied. Rather malty with a hint of mint. Some banana accompanied by a touch of white wine and sour apples. Lightly sour and smoky. Nice lingering yeasty finish with a hint of peppermint. The spritzy characteristic gets cloying after a few sips. Decent, nothing more. Noticeably inferior to a good Dunkelweizen.

Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Schnitzel Plas- On draft- Cloudy orange/brown, fluffy head. Had this right after the Korbinian, and I know it’s a bad comparison, but I was let down with this dunkel after the stellar performance of the doppelbock. This beer was a bit on the sweet side for me.
