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.

500ml bottle.Weizen glass. Dark amber color, orangish brown tints to the light. Foggy. Beige, large bubbled froth & poor crown. Toasted & caramel malt, sugary aromas, floral notes & light ripe banana hues. Toasted, spicy & low hoppy upfront. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily to watery texture. Hues of fudge chocolate & phenolic notes. Cloying sweet finish. A boring one.
