look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A: Nice hazy brown with great head retention. I would like a little darker with the description "dunkel"

S: Nice balance between clove phenols and banana esters with a bit grain, bread, and caramel.

T: As in the nose, perfect balance between clove and banana for my tastes (no citrus). Backed by the noted grain, bread, and caramel notes. A bit yeasty as well. No hop flavor.

M: Sweet with medium-full body and a nice sharp wheat finish.

4.18/5  rDev -1.6%
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
