Review following the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15B). Bottle 50 cl - Batch 17.03.2013 20:11. AROMA: clove, slight sweet vanilla, dried grapes, raw yeast, wheat and caramel malts. no hop aromas. no diacetyl or DMS. APPEARANCE: dark copper color with a slight off-white medium-thin and moussy head. average retention. TASTE: slight sweet caramelly taste with wheat and clove. esters and phenols almost absent. very low bitterness and finishes somewhat sweet. a little dull. PALATE: medium-light body with average carbonation. OVERALL: a below average bulk dunkelweizen, a little dull across the board.

16.9 oz bottle in a chalice glass. Pours a dark amber, brown color with a light head. Taste of sweet fruits with a tinge of lager-like bitter bread/yeast. Very light body with a mineral water consistency; the carbonation making it very refreshing. Overall, very good.
