Fresh, smooth, not very complex, just roast and chocolate malt aroma and chocolate malttaste. Medium satisfying mouthfeel, great after Sushi with wasabi and ginger. Pure brown, lace. Dry aftertaste. Some malt, banana and citrus, bit of yeast. Well carbonated. Thanks Mark for bringing back from germany.

On-tap at Paulaner im Tal, on to the beer:

This dunkelweizen is chestnut brown in color, topped with thick, fluffy head which retains well. A good aroma of cinnamon crusted apples with fennel makes the beer even more tempting, which follows through to the taste. The flavors pop out; pleasant phenols at first, then followed by spiced apples. With a dash of clove, the flavor turns to be very appealing. It's light-medium-bodied, with appropriate carbonation.

Like its popular helles sibling, the dunkelweizen is one to respect. One to try.

On tap at Biermarkt.

Pours a cloudy dark orange, lots of brown highlights in the corners, very thick slightly off white head forms, very tall and creamy, slowly settles down to a thick ring and layer, good lacing everywhere. Smell is nice, but similar to their hefe, decent banana and a touch of clove, caramel, biscuit, yeast and wheat, a touch of chocolate, pretty solid aroma. Taste is similar, nice banana/caramel character, clove is light, biscuity malt middle, some light chocolate/roast character, quite yeasty, some wheat and very fruity in the finish. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with high carbonation, pretty drinkable stuff.

Bottle best before 09/06.

A: Hazy, copper-brown; fizzy white-head, quickly dissipates.

S: Bready with hints of pineapple and banana.

T: Bready, banana, hint of pineapple, slight spice.

M: Moderate body with a fairly high carbonation. It'd probably feel creamier if it wasn't so carbonated.

D: Not very stimulating, but fairly drinkable.

A: Pours murky light brown with a great large creamy beautiful tan head. Dissipation is slow, oh so slow, and leaves great lacings.

S: Ripe bananas from the wheat and sweet malt in great balance. Citric notes, mainly oranges. Some spices.

T: Ripe bananas and sweet malt, well balanced. Citric notes, oranges and lemon. Some bitter hops.

M: Light in body and medium carbonation. Aftertaste is both sweet and bitter but not that long (just as a Dunkelweizen should be).

D: A very nice Dunkelweizen - a little of everything nice about the style. This is a must-try!

The colour is shady medium brown with a tint of orange. The brown three finger thick foam sinks slowly down to a thin lid.

The smell is roasted with notes of black pepper, allspice and other spices, some sour wheat dough.

The taste is sweet and somewhat burned. There are spicy notes of allspice, sour wheat notes and some aroma hops. The medium long aftertaste is creamy with notes of dough and some yeast. Very refreshing.

The mouthfeel is creamy with a fresh carbonation; the bubbles are very small.

One of the better weizens that I have come across.

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.

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.

Pours hazy brown with a large, lasting head. Nose shows lots of doughy wheat, caramelised bananas and spicy phenols. Similar flavours, mainly doughy wheat with soft toasty malt also joining in. Quite light, very easy to drink. Carbonation is moderately high, which suits the flavours well.

Poured from a half-litre bottle into a Blackthorn pint glass.

A: An overflowing cream-coloured head quickly fills half the glass and sticks around for ages. A hazy, opaque medium-brown colour with visible carbonation.

S: Light citrus, flat malts. Dark bread, pineapple.

T: Good, but not great. Milk chocolate maltiness accompanied by a tropical fruitiness provides most of the character to this pleasantly wheaty beer. Clean, smoothly drinkable, and roundly bready. The aftertaste is sweet with almost no bitterness, though it is at times dryish. Wheat flavours linger on.

M: Carbonated just enough, smooth and watery with the aforementioned wheat edges.

D: Wonderfully consumable. I could down glass after glass, but I'm not particularly sure why I'd want to. A very well-made beer, but kind of boring and nothing special. Still, a recommended dunkel if you're in the Bavarian neighbourhood.

It made lots of head, thick and persistent. And it has a brown hazy color, and floating yeast residuals.
Yeast is predominant in its aroma, also some hints of cloves and wood. It has a medium carbonation with tiny bubbles and a medium body.
Tastes reminded me of ciders with some caramel and hints of plums, though not overly sweet. Here the yeast is also a key player. Citric taste, more lime than orange. Slightly bitter and a bit toasted. Interesting beer.
