Pours copper with a small head.
Nose shows sweet nutty, toasty and bready notes. Some subtle banana too.
Flavours include bready and nutty malt as well as some doughy wheat.
Pretty decent stuff.

Pours a golden amber with a large off white fluffy head. Aroma is of wheat, dark malt and yeast notes. Taste same as aroma with some moderate bitterness. Palate is a medium body with good carbonation. The finish has wheat and dark malt flavors with some yeast notes and moderate bitterness on the end for balance. Overall nothing too special here but still a good drinking brew.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15B). Bottle 50 cl - Batch A210020. AROMA: slight dried grapes, raw yeast, bready, wheat and caramel malts. no hop aromas. no diacetyl or DMS. APPEARANCE: dark copper color with a ivory medium-thin and moussy head. average retention. hazy. TASTE: slight sweet caramelly taste with faint wheat notes. esters and phenols almost absent. very low bitterness and finishes sweet and bready. PALATE: dilluted medium-light body with average carbonation. OVERALL: a poor and watered down bulk dunkelweizen, with uninteresting aromas and flavours.
