4.19/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a cloudy mahogany color and the cap leaves some streaky lace behind

Smell: Banana and clove with undertones of caramel

Taste: Caramel and clove, up front, with banana flavor building; after the swallow, vanilla, nuts and tart apple elements arrive though the sweeter flavors on the front end return to drive the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body, creamy and spritzy

Overall: While I prefer Weihenstephaner's regular hefe better, this is a great example of the dunkle version

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Nice hazy copper color with a fluffy white head. Not much lacing, but not much expected from style.

Aroma is amazing. Good blend of maltiness with a hint of spice. I've heard green apple and pie spice and those are perfect descriptions.

Flavor is great as well. Good malts with the spice punching through nicely among a good level of carbonation.

A truly delicious wheat beer and another solid offering from Weihenstephaner.
