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.

Nothing wrong with this wheat ale. Its a fine everyday type of beer. Its smooth and malty, and that is all you need to know.

Jabic (500) - 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.

The wheat yeast isnt 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,

EvanFriend (559) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Very malty, some fruit notes, maybe some caramel as well. Banana is there, as well as a light bit of spice, not as much as some other wheat beers. Pretty good.

Heidelbeer (25) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2017
Creamy dense, averaged sized beige medium long lasting head. Beer is murky brown. Aroma is pleasant, it smells like flowers, ripe bananas, yeast and brown sugar. Flavor is compared to the aroma a little bit underwhelming but still good. I taste primarily medium sweet malt, banana and yeast. A little bit sour, no bitterness. All in all a good balance but for my preference not strong enough. I would wish myself a Bock Version of this beer. Palate is creamy, medium bodied with a medium to soft carbonation. Finish is average intense and short to medium long lasting.
