A: Pours a hazy copper color with 2+ fingers of head that relatively quickly fizzles down into a thin cap

S: Some banana and clove, along with some darker malts and fruits. Relatively simple, but still very good

T: Starts off with a hint of yeast and darker fruity malts. Goes into a light banana and clove before finishing with more of the yeasty notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very smooth and refreshing

O: A very good example of the style, although relatively simple. Great price-point and product as usual for Weihenstephaner

Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier Dunkel @ 5.3% , a Dunkelweizen served from a 500 ml bottle purchased for $5.30

A-pour is a hazy amber with a big off white head that is leaving a decent amount of lace along the weizen glass

S-clove phenols & banana esters with hints of caramel

T-bit of a kick to it , nice

MF-medium carbonation , full body , another easy drinking beer

Ov-good beer , another classic beer from the world oldest brewery

sampled alongside 2 other Weihenstephan beers (Vitus & Hefeweissbier)
