Dunkles Hefe Weizen: (half liter brown bottle) Cloudy reddish beer, with a very pale beige head. Very pleasant odor of bananas and sweet apples. Nice sticky Belgian Lace. Refreshing. The taste is very sweet, but the beer is not very lively, although I see by the side of the bottle that I’ve got an old one. I’ll get a fresher one, as it is worth another look. (377 characters)

Another Hefe-Dunkles without much oomph... Dark bronze, slight haze even without any yeasties poured in and with lots of carbonation bubbling up. Huge, creamy pancake-batter like head (hangs around a bit...) and nice lacing. Mild nose of, of, ? Touch banana, but more clove....some chocolate malt....a bit mild. Fairly decent on the tongue, with medium (at-best) body. Some banana and good clove flavors, but way-too understated.... Needs more depth. Oh well, I tried it.... Looks and smells better than it tastes. I may be sticking with the Hefe-Hells as opposed to the Hefe-Dunkels in the future... Prosit!!

1 Pt. bottle.

Deep orange color with a fluffy tan head. The beer gets darker the higher in the glass you look (orange type of black and tan). Slightly sweet/wheat malt nose. Smooth and malty brew. Not complex in any way, but straight at you with mouthfeel. (263 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 16oz brown sleek euro style bottle with a drink before date clearly marked.

Appearance: Tawny amber with a thick haze, powdery and pillowy head sticks all over the glass.

Smell: Ripe banana with a cake like sweetness ... mild spicy note in the nose also.

Taste: Creamy, smooth and crisp with a medium bodied that leans towards a chewy malt mouth feel. Bready malt sweetness from the wheat malt with a touch of caramel and ripe fruit (mostly banana). Subtle spicy flavours mingle with a light hop bitterness which merely tames the malt. Mild clove spiciness, good dose of fruity esters and a ghost like buttery diacetyl just add to the complexities. Some nutty yeast and a faint light chocolate flavour are also present. Clean palate with a even cleaner finish.

Notes: A very tasty Dunkelweizen ... on par for style and a sure thing for any traditional wheat beer lover. Lots of flavours going around to satisfy all of your taste buds. 5.35% abv. (971 characters)

I'm still looking for a dunkel weiss that has enough malt sweetness to balance out the tart finish associated with this style. Except for a lucky batch of homebrew, I have yet to find it. This is a quality weissbier, no doubt, but to my taste, still lacking as a dunkel. (270 characters)

First is the very foamy head, but it quickly goes and this dunkle is very drinkable. ABV is 5.3% but pound down a few of these - 1 pint - and you will notice. (158 characters)

Not as dark as some dunkel weizens but that doesn't take away from the flavor. All the classic hefe flavors with a little added malt character. A pleasure to look at when poured into proper glassware. (200 characters)

Tucher's Kristall is a hard act to follow, and this dunkel did a pretty fair job. Substantial bannan esters which are pretty well integrated in the balance. Overall, a tasty dunkel, but seemed like it needed just a little more kick to in order to be outstanding. (264 characters)

I'm always impressed by Tucher brews, and this one is no different. A very crisp and flavourful dunkeles hefe. I highly recommend pouring the beer, leaving a bit in the bottle, then rolling the bottle between your hands to losen the yeast and pour it into the glass. You'll gain much more flavour. (297 characters)
