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.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2016 Cloudy deep amber with a huge offwhite head. Nose of caramel, baguette and crust, wheat, banana, some fruity and zesty notes, hints of spice, candy, smoke, yeast. Light to medium sweetness and tartness, hints of bitterness on finish. Smooth creamy and oily texture, medium body, high carbonation, extremely drinkable. Nice complexity and too damn drinkable!

Echon (428) - rhus, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2016
Dark amber. Fruity and somewhat spicy, with notes of banana. Full, lightly sweet taste with a dry and lightly bitter finish. Medium body, with a soft texture. Overall, a good dunkelweizen. However, aside from the darker colour, I did not notice any difference between this beer and the normal hefeweizen.
