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.

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.

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.

German beer sincerely liked. With subtlety or lack of forcefulness that calls for a pint of beer, a product persenalitat own, quality products for an authentic German difrutar! Surely repeat.

Pours a medium-light brown with a large foamy head, some lacing. Nose is full of spices and raw dough, and just a touch of malt. Not much in the way of fruity esters. Taste is similar to the nose, with lots of nutmeg, clove, and other spices leading the way. Again, not a banana bomb at all. Just a touch of malt from the dunkel side of this, but not heavy at all. Overall, if you want a spice-forward dunkel weisse with less esters, you can't go wrong here. Very good.
