3.5/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Brown with orange hues, good creamy head with ample retention. Aromas of cooked caramel, sweet malt and banana as well as some barnyarn/gamey notes. Somewhat fat in the mouth while soft in texture with mild carbonation. Flavors are a bit gamey and very nutty with some husky and caramal malt flavors. The beer finishes mildly watery.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a cloudy dark brown brew.

Smell is a big whiff of dunkel bananas and bubble gum. Other smells like spices are present too.

Taste is mostly spice. Not to sweet and the Banana taste practically punches you in the nose.

Mouthfeel is watery.

Very drinkable, just it isn't the top beer of its kind.

It pours a cloudy, tawny brown body with a full head of creamy off-white foam that holds exceptionally well but leaves only minor lacing considering the style. Light brown sugar and soft red berries dominate the aroma with only subtle hints of banana and a gentle clove-like spice appear in the nose. The body is medium and it appears initially crisp and then creamy across the palate due to its very fine and effervescent natural carbonation. The flavor delivers a beautiful combination of soft maltiness and gentle fruitiness (berries, apples, bananas). It's very well-balanced by a soft bitterness, and it finishes dry with a short note of fruity yeast. Quite nice! It's weizen yeast character is somewhat restrained, offering a bit more drinkability. Certainly on-par with the better known brands and well worth trying.

When poured, it was amber in color with some foam and a little lace. The smel was fruity, with a hint of some spice. The taste was dyr in the palate, fruity and had some spice. Not overly found of this Dunkle Weisse. Sort of a flat taste on the finish.

3.43/5  rDev -7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured a cloudy dark brown with a good-sized resilient, creamy off-white head. Large volume of carbonation coming up from the bottom.
Heavy sweet smell of bready malt and dark fruits, with a fainter aroma of banana and clove.
Taste had a kind of bananabread flavor with some prune and clove flavors added in. Not as robust in taste as I would have expected after smelling it.
Feel was rather thin and light with a raw edge to it.
Overall, I was impressed with the attractiveness and smell of this beer. However, I thought it to be coming up short on taste and feel.

Pouring a funky sewage brown, it has an off white head that disappears quickly. The usual banana and clove smells are in there but in lesser amounts than others of the style. The same holds true for the taste. It's not unpleasant, but it's a bit on the light side in the taste and also in the mouthfeel. Despite these drawbacks it-like most other weissbiers-goes down easy.

Enjoyed on tap at the Weissbrau Hopf Stuberl in Miesbach, Germany, on the first day of my Sep, 2001 trip. Cloudy, dark brown to copper in color, with a large, creamy head. Plenty of pleasant banana and clove aromas. Drawbacks were the body, which was a bit thin; and the bier was somewhat rough on the tongue. Real nice flavor, though, with malty sweetness coupled with more banana/clove. It smooths out as it warms....
