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.
