500ml bottle poured into pilsener glass.

A - Pours a light red-brown with some haze. A massive, 3+ finger head developed, and stuck around a while. Great looking beer.

S - Lot's of malt up front. Hints of banana, citus fruit and a bit of yeast. Quite powerful.

T - Wheat beers really aren't my thing, but I'm always willing to try new beers. I actually really liked this stuff. Lot's of malt and yeast going on, with a hint of banana bread. I wouldn't mind if the banana taste were a little more subtle. Overall, a pretty solid beer.

F - Light, with a medium crispness. Felt good going down and on the tounge. Not exactly a golf course beer, but I can see this being refreshing on a hot day.

O - Again, wheat beers really aren't my style. This is one of, if not the best wheat beer I've ever had. It's nothing that I'll sprint to the store to buy more of, but I'd highly recommend it to any wheat beer or strong flavored beer in general fans.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Dark tea, hazy brown, less appealing than it smells and tastes.

S: Cloves dominantly, bananas, lemon.

T: Same as smell.

M: Lacks richness of Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier, but still very tasteful.

Bit disappointing, but only in comparison with Hefeweissbier by the same brewery. This is still outstanding beer. Not great fan of dunkelweizen, but this was worth trying.
