Tap at tavern on the square in northborough.

Nice creamy 1/2 finger head, hazy mahogany tan brown color.

Nose semi sweet malts, candy toffee mild caramel, toasty brown malts, toasted wheat, caramelized sugars.

Taste starts with sweet sugars, candy again, caramelized sugars and toffee, caramel, etc, with plenty of toasted wheat and brown candy wheat, mild biscuit, hint of candied raisin like fruit, etc. Finish brings more fruity flavours, caramelized sugars toffee and raisin, little grassy hop too.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, mild creamy, decent carb.

Overall quite nice, again Weihenstephaner delivers the standard for a great German beer.

This is by far my favorite Dunkelweizen.

I haven't had one in a while so I can't give an accurate description but it's toasted, bready malts all the way.

I like this a bit better than the Hefeweisen from the same brewer - it's more subdued in it's flavoring but not at all boring. Just tasty as heck.
