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.

Pours cloudy brown, smooth mouth feel. Deep fruity and malt flavours, not a bad beer at all.

Rhombic (154) - Elx, SPAIN - DEC 10, 2017
Bottle. Pours pale brown with beautiful pale tan head, very carbonated. Fruity and creamy aromas, sweetcorn and malty. The flavours are similar in nature, mild, cerealy, with a nice celeriac-like aftertaste that is in fact a positive aspect. Refreshing and delightful. Pretty watery, short finish... could have done with a better texture. Good beer after all.

bytemesis (9345) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 9, 2017
Bottle. Pours hazy hazel, large fluffy beige head, dispatching slowly with good lacing. Aroma is banana, clove, hints of dust and lemon. Flavor is light sweet, very light bitter, wheat, banana, bubblegum. Medium body. Hugely drinkable

Cavie (4837) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2017
Bottle. Cloudy/hazy appearance. Some sediment. Some orange highlights, light brown color. Rocky offwhite head. Clove and banana on the aroma. Yeast character comes through. Low caramel malt. Bready sweet notes in the flavor. Banana yeast phenols. Yeast forward balance. Pretty good example.

biilz (235) - SPAIN - NOV 16, 2017
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 (1895) - 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.

Daboch (192) - Gdansk, POLAND - NOV 10, 2017
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 (566) - 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

Hazy light brown color with small white head. Banana, clove and wheat with some spices. Little bitter with banana sweetness.
