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.

(Bottle) Pours hazy light amber. Spicy and light floral aroma with some banana esters. Also some hints of clove. Spicy flavour with tones of banana and wheat. Soft and round mouthfeel with a light sour sting. Lingering wheat and banana-ish aftertaste. Medium bodied.

On draft. Clear brown coloured, thick head. Malty and fruity notes in aroma. Nice malty flavour with some caramel malty sweetness and just a tad of sourness. Great mouthfeel. Excellent brew.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Typical characteristics of a dunkel - cloudy brown, aroma of banana, clove, and citrus. Flavor is nice, but still somewhat watery and muddled. Not a great example of the style.

Crafty07 (404) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - JUL 16, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2007 Another excellent weiss from the worlds oldest brewery. highly carboneded dark brown poor provides everything youd expect, bananas and cloves taste. The dark malts give it an earthier quality that is quiet pleasent. Not as aromatic as the lighter hefeweisse but otherwise an excellent beer

bonbright7 (181) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2007 I gently poured the virulent brown contents into my tall pint glass and it produced a massive foamy head that declined unevenly and slowly. As I worked through the foam to the body and flavor, I was nearly rendered speechless as the malty taste was lightly enhanced by the parts of bananas and yeast. All this from a bottle which led me to wonder the usual question: what is like on tap? Update 10/07: The tap version is not as strongly nuanced as the bottle, but it is very drinkable.

badgerben (4907) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Cloudy, dark copper color with a large head. Slight banana aroma along with some grain. Thick wheat flavor. Moderate banana, a little spice, lots of yeast.
