4.83/5 rDev +13.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from bottle into hefeweizen glass
Aroma: malty, bready smell with banana and clove notes
Appearance: foggy, mahogany colored, tan head
Taste: Very much like a hefeweizen style with toasty malt flavor, lots of yeast. Clove and banana come through, just like in the nose.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, light carbonation---dry finish
Overall: This is my standard for dunkelweiss styles. It’s the first one I ever tried, I’ve had many since, and nothing tops the Weihenstephaner version. I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise that the oldest brewery in the world still makes some of the best beer in the world.
Serving type: bottle

4.23/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Look: Pours with large, very thick, billowy, off-white (yellow hue) head. It has a beautiful, slow retention that leaves medium sized, creamy, thick layer on the top. It stays till the end and leaves fair amount of lacing. Colour is cloudy, creamy toffee, caramel, like milk chocolate sundae shake - delicious. Also lots of active carbonation, lots of bubbly chains.
Smell: Clove and banana classic. Bit peppery, fresh sweet peeled apples, red earth. Grain, wheat, hay with light darker malt sweetness, hints of caramel and milk chocolate most obvious.
Taste: Clove and banana with some spice lead the way; also yeasty character gets some ground. Dry apples, light sour. Medium sweet middle, mostly grain/wheat - light caramel sweetness doesn't come out until in the aftertaste. Good balance of clove, banana and pepper play in the after - wouldn't expect anything different from Weinhenstephan. Some light noble hops at the end too.
Mouthfeel: Light crisp start, this lively carbonation suits it well. Smooth and creamy medium light heavy body.
Overall: Not that different from the classical hefeweissbier, superb yet relatively simple play of the classical banana clove formation, that looks and feel good. Expected a bit more contribution from the darker malts tho.
