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: MAY 6, 2017 Pours deep clear amber brown. Light bready aroma and flavour. Some esters in the nose. Thin creamy texture. Pleasant sweet subtle malty flavours follow. Quite subtle and nice.

Estebanik (1280) - Lublin, POLAND - MAY 3, 2017
Piana bujna, piękna. Ale tak poza tym to raczej słaby pszeniczniak - przede wszystkim drożdżowy, kwaskowy, z tylko śladem banana. Troszkę ciasta drożdżowego. Brak jakichś bardziej odczuwalnych ciemniejszych nutek. Tekstura może jest całkiem przyjemna, wysycenie oczywiście wysokie. O tak o.

Jabic (698) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - APR 15, 2017
Ar: Mild banana and peach; sweet, doughy malt. Ap: Amber and lightly hazy; very large off-white head with excellent retention, leaving a webbed cap of large-bubbled foam and a trail of suds along the glass sides. T: Peach skins and light banana up front; mild sweetness; hints of clove; toasted, melanoidin-rich accent mid-palate; herbal hop flavor, low bitterness; a bit of dusty cocoa on the finish. P: Medium body with high carbonation; finish is dry. O: Good, solid dunkel weizen; fair amount of expected flavors, like banana, peach, clove, and toast, but not overdone and well-balanced.

Aus der Flasche beim Griechen getrunken. Trübes Rotbraun im Glas mit stabilem weißem Schaum. Mild hefig, im Nachtrunk etwas zu süß.

3.3

The wheat yeast isn’t for everyone but the fruity/spicy aroma on this example is fantastic. The texture and is buttery and the taste has a lot of malt. The beer is a great example of the German dark wheat. Very yummy,

Bottle. Opaque brownish color. Banana and cream aroma. Taste follows after, with bready notes. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Not bad.
