Poured from a bottle into glass mug and served at approximately 50 degrees.

A: poured a beautiful brownish copper color with half inch head that lasted and left good lacing through the finish

S: a very dynamic aroma from opening the bottle to the last drop consisting of biscuits, bready and hop notes, and a touch of wood

T: fantastic, flavors that came through matched and were brought out more intensely by covering the entire palate, bready, some hops, and a smooth finish

M: medium/full mouthfeel coating the palate just enhanced the flavors even more

D: filling, could only drink one or two but what an experience those two would be

If there is a perfect beer, this is it! From first opening the bottle through the pour and right to the finish this beer is superb!

Weihenstephaner Hefeweiss Dunkel pours perfectly as to be expected. Plenty of carbonation to produce ample amounts of khaki colored head, with great retention. The body is a murky chocolate brown, and is nearly opaque.

The weizen glass supplied with this taster pack is key to providing a picturesque pour, for any weizen.

Aromas are of fresh banana nut bread, with cloves. There is a light peppery fragrance, which is shared with its lighter version.

The taste is an envelope of flavor. Sweet banana flavor dominates, with slight breadiness.

Mouth feel wise, there is plenty of bite from the carbonation, but a slick oiliness follows through.

This is the most refreshing dunkel weizen I've ever had. Too bad this isn't readily available in my neck of the Odenwald.
