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.

OKplus (788) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 14, 2013
A - Pours a cloudy honey brown. A mounded 2 finger off-white head that sinks very slow creating a thick ceiling and impressive lacing. S - Yeasty banana bread, very doughy. Lots of wheat with notes of clove and bubblegum. T - Follows the nose with moist banana bread, sweet with clove and a thick wheat backbone. Hints of caramel, berries, and slight nuttiness in the middle. Finishes with a bit more grain in the malt M - Silky smooth and creamy. Tight but low carbonation with a light to medium body. The mouthfeel is perfect! Very elegant flavors and seems to have great balance with the flavors. The wheat still shines and the esters seem perfectly placed. This beer will leave you wanting more. Serving type: bottle 10-27-2011

Лично для меня абсолютно лучшее темное пшеничное пиво. Аромат классического Дункельвайзена, отличный запах пшеницы, немного хлеба. Вкус также насыщен наивкуснейший пшеничкой. Также чувствуется легкая карамельная сладость и черный хлеб. Пиво очень питкое с идеальной кремовой пеной. Послевкусие безумно мягкое хоть и слегка слабоватое. Но в итоге почти идеальное пиво из Германии.

dynamiteninja (1890) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2017
Bottle. Large cream colour head. Well carbonated hazy amber brown body. Wheat, spice, digestive biscuit, bubblegum, strawberries, banoffee pie, whiff of alcohol, sour cherries. Caramel and green apple. Overripe banana. Gentle alkaline and sweet taste. Slight sourness. Very refreshing. Dry finish.

Jasnobrązowe mętne piwo z obfitą i trwałą pianą. Aromat rodzynki, banany trochę karmelu. W smaku podobnie, dominuje smak bananów i rodzynek, trochę czekolady, piwo lekko słodkie, nieśmiałe nuty ciemniejszych słodów. Przyjemne piwo

ardeo (547) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2017
Bottle 0,5l. Robe cuivrée, mousse blanche sympa. Nez sur le caramel, le grain et les épices. Bouche un peu comme la 'Vitus' avec omniprésence des épices (clou de girofle, poivre, piment) + des saveurs de banane, de caramel et de malt. Ronde, fraîche, "caramélisée", épicée à souhait, amère : que demander de plus ? Finalement, c'est bon les bières allemandes ! Sehr schönes Bier

0.5l bottle. Cloudy brown color with white head. Aroma of clove, banana and malt. Taste is sweet, little bitter and little sour. I don't know what happened here, but this is in range of supermarket dunkelweizens.

On tap at a spatzle restaurant Berlin. A nice gluggable dunkel that perfectly matches heavy German food. All the flavours but avoiding heaviness. Decent.

Bachvarov (25) - Sofia, BULGARIA - OCT 10, 2017
Great brown color. No head. The aroma is strong and you can feel the wheat. Aftertaste goes away very fast.

Very smooth and drinkable. Mild fruit flavoring. Delicious light malty and medium mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
