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 from andersons. Nose is wheat and dark Sugar. Super smooth and pretty light with little carbonation that fades quickly. Malty punch up front. Cherry, wheat, toasted cereal, and bit of raisin and clove for good measure. Pretty good and would do again but wouldn't go out of my way to seek it out.

Strykzone (6935) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Pint bottle. One I am surprised to not have ticked long ago. Murky brown with a big off white foam that slowly falls. The aroma is wheat and yeast. Plenty of malts in there, too. Rich malts fruit are tasted and they just keep coming. Lighter fruit. Bananas, gentle cloves, bubble gum, and yeast. A little chocolate. Those malts are almost syrupy. The finish brings a little more fruit along with that syrup and then a hint of alcohol.

biir (965) - Berlin, - MAY 10, 2016
Flasche - fast rotstichige Farbe, sehr stabiler, cremiger Schaum. Aromen von Banane, Toffee und Malz, alles aber eher dezent und gut abgestimmt. Im Nachgesschmack Brot und Weizen. Gut!

LazyPyro (735) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2016
0.5L bottle. Cloudy orange-brown with a large creamy smooth head. Aroma of wheat, dark malts, banana, cloves. Taste is predominantly wheat and malt, with citrus, banana, spices, toffee. Sweet and fruity, the banana flavours more subdued than in similar beers. Extremely smooth mouthfeel, lovely to drink. A favourite.

Poured from a bottle. Generous thick head that dissipates quickly. First taste is very malty and smooth. A slight nutty taste lingers and finishes thick and bread like. A very solid dunkle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Robe brumeuse, laiteuse, modrment trouble pour une dunkel : sur lorange fonce terne.Belle mousse blanc cass abondante et crmeuse. Nez : parfum typique dpices, bananes mres et crales dlicatement grilles (modrment). Je mattendais un nez plus "fou" mais peut tre bire servie trop froide. En bouche : fine acidit typique, bouche cralire typique, corps lger mais laiteux, crmeux "lger" comme un lait crm fouett ou des blancs battus.Tout est assez typique du genre, quilibr.Au vu des notes je mattendez quelque chose de plus marqu.Peu de torrfaction, comme le laiss prsag la couleur, finalement une blanche allemande peine plus corse. On reste tout de mme dans lextrme matrise et lquilibre idal.Manque juste un peu plus de folie.
