Served in a Trooper shaker pint glass.

It has taken me far too long to getting to try this stuff. Let's do it. It pours a mostly clear tawny topped by a finger or so of sandstone foam. The nose comprises clove, orange zest, and cracked wheat. The taste brings in more of the same, with a lot more clove and a hint of chocolate powder. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a damn tasty dunkelweizen, well worthy of its lofty reputation.

Bottle: standard 500mL brown bottle, traditional German label.

Appearance: poured into a weizen glass. A mid-brown in colour with a light haze and plenty of carbonation. A wonderful inch of off-white head bursts up the glass and settles to a half-inch with fantastic lacing.

Aroma: there are the usual suspects of banana and clove, with caramels and heavy fruits.

Taste: very similar to Weihenstephan's Hefeweizen, but with the addition of the smooth caramel and heavy fruits. Very nice.

Aftertaste: all of the flavours last for a time, with the caramel malts up front. A tiny bit dry on the finish.

Mouth feel: a moderate body with higher carbonation. A nice, smooth feel.

Overall: another great example of the traditional German wheat beer from Weihenstephan - a classic. Good value too for an equivalent of AU$70 a case. One of the best wheat beers I have had - well worth it.
