look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

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!

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.

Sampling right now on 9/16/14 after bowling. Single 550ml bottle for $3.99. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a brand-new limited edition 'Brazil 2014' .5L Weishenstephan soccer glass that the wife won on their FaceBook page that came in the mail yesterday. Beautiful tall glass with a soccer ball near the bottle. Awesome!

Pours a dark brown-copper color with a good 4-finger foamy off-white head that settles down to a good 1/2+ finger. A good amount of lacing is seen that sticks to the glass. Great aroma of German malts and hops with a dark bread aroma as well. Even more going on with the taste as this is very flavorful, more with every sip. Medium+/Full bodied with perfect carbonation but not a 'heavy' beer. No bitter or harsh aftertaste at all. This is a fantastic brew like their others since this the World's Oldest Brewery from 1040! PROST! ")
