Brown, chestnut-coloured. Abundant foam, with some big bubble and holes that make it not too beautiful to see. Good hat, anyway.
In the bottom of the bottle, some block of yeast.
Smell of malt, caramel, light hop, pineapple.
Tatste of malt , caramel sugar, honey, and a light point of hop.
Medium body, aftertaste with caramel again, sweet and a slight note of bitter.
Unbalanced toward sweet.

This is one interesting / weird / different beer.
It pours with a light black or dark(ish) brown color which is quite hazy. The dirty brown head is very generous and lasting. The aroma is sweet, but there's no usual coffee, caramel or chocolate, but rather some fruits, hard to say esactly what.
The tase is also sweet and malty with some fruity taste as well.
Not bad, but I'm not yet sure if I like it. Takes more than one to be sure about it.

Pours a deep golden colour and is very murky. The head is limited, but what there is, does sit there for the duration. As for the taste, it leaves no doubt that it is a wheat beer... with after taste.The body is full. Really does nothing for me......but then again is not my style of choice...

Looking at the label of Paulaner Hefe-Weissbier Dunkel I noticed that it looks like the Bavarian version of the Last Supper (or last jug). It pours in a nice amber color with 1-2 fingers of foam, and smells like dark bread. The first taste is of sweet bread with a bitter aftertaste. But the bottle I had was too carbonated which gave it a bad mouthfeel, blocking the tastes. All and all, I have had many better weissbiers.

Bottle from a grocery store in Warsaw. From notes.

A - Poured a brown colour. Kinda like lake water? Cloudy with good head retention and ok lacing. One finger khaki head to start.

S - kinda weak to be honest. Yeasty and some sweet malt.

T - Sweet dark malt finish prefaced by a wheat, lemon, and yeast combo. Nice with the darker, slightly richer malt profile.

M - Medium carbonation and a light to medium body with a sweetish finish.

O/D - I could have a few but it was nothing overly special. Interesting dunkelweisse.
