3.38/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in a big Kloster Andechs weizen glass.

Swirled up those yeasty boys good, and spent the requisite 10 minutes pouring...

A: Typical cloudy weizen going from murky gold to opaque brown...fluffy head departed quickly leaving a quarter inch of white foam.

S: Noticeable banana...gets the mouth watering.

T: More delicious banana...but pretty straightforward...not much malt complexity...touch watery. Refreshing, but more hefe than dunkel.

M: Silky and slick on the tongue.

O: Hot day hefe. Not a special beer by any means...strays too far from dunkel to provide any excitement. I never do it with good weizens but this beer could use a lemon wedge to add some zest to its otherwise blah flavor characteristics.

3.55/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 0.5l bottle into a 0.5l Zotler weizen-bier glass.

A: Pours a hazy rust brown color with 3 fingers of puffy white foam on top. Retention was good but sadly, hardly any lace was left behind.

S: Typical Dunkelweizen aromas of banana and clove with a touch of caramel and light citrus. Stangely muted.

T: See above. Rather safe and muted. Mineral-like flavors in the finish.

M: Chewy and full. Mildly carbonated and a bit oily. Nice.

O: I was slightly underwhelmed by this. I was hoping for this to be an amazing German Dunkel but got one that plays it too close to the vest. Enjoyable and refreshing, but not life altering.

3.08/5  rDev -12%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a brown hazy color with a thick creamy tan head that fades slowly leaving a good amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell is of yeast and banana, maybe some milk chocolate?

Taste starts spicy up front then some banana bread like flavors. It's a fairly chewy beer and I like that. Lemon zest toward the middle. A dry spicy lingering finish, I almost want to say there is a faint hit of lime juice in the finish.

Not one of my favorite beers, but I would drink it again.
