A:Very nace dark redish brown with a definate haxe toit. There is very big foamy head left even with a slow pour. I noticed a good amount of sedimant on the bottom of the bottle.

S:Sweet slightly toasted malt right off the bat then a slight bananaish nut smell.
T:Not as close as the smell as i thought it would be kind has a bready honey like flovor to it kind of weird but good flowed buy the a tart spice likeness.

M:Smooth and creamy good weight to it with a good carbonation a little fizzy at the end

D:Very drinkable cand drink quite a bit of these with out realizing it. i would buy this beer agian if i was out to eat of in a bar having a few but i dont think i would buy it buy the case any time soon not that its bad just that after i drink it one day i dont wanna drink it the next.

3.85/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Cloudy dark, dark brown with a slightly off-white head that disippates quickly and leaves a very short lace.

S - Much like their Hefe but more subdued and with some malty notes.

T - More subdued banana and clove that is very adeptly balanced by malted grain. Hops are just there.

M - Full yet a little crisp somehow.

O - A really well balanced weissebier. I prefer my dunkels to be a bit lighter brown. All in all, this was just a good, well-rounded beer.. I was hoping it would be a great hot summer lawn mowing beer. I'll probably drink it as an early autumn refresher, though.

Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Murky mahogany-brown pour with a quickly fading one finger off-white head with decent lacing. Nutty, earthy nose with hints of banana, brown bread, clove, and a subtle vinous character. The taste follows suit with lots of malty brown bread up front along with hints of banana, clove, toffee, apple, tobacco, molasses, and a subtle vinous finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly chewy with medium carbonation and good balance. Overall, a solid interpretation with good drinkability.
