Poured from the bottle into Furstenberg glassware that I got from the brewery 34 years ago! This is my first taste of this beer since the late 80's, as it has not been available in the US since then (I got this beer from Quebec). Frothy browny head, very thick as I remember it being. The body of the beer is also dark, but a bit on the amber brown side. The first sip brought back memories of my time in the Black Forest of Germany, where the brewery is located - malty sweetness, slight banana flavor, wheat bread on the backside. A deeelicious brew that I wish I could get more ofter!

FWHD is pretty much on par for this type of beer. It's medium brown in colour, with a light head that lasts a while but leaves zero lacing. Rather than bananas, I smell cherry in this one - in addition to the expected wheat aromas. Its wheat character is quite strong in the taste, highlighted by the fruity tastes (a little sour cherry and plum). Its fine carbonation and dry finish make it feel very good going down. Good stuff!

A - Pours a dark Amber color with a nice tight white head that retains well.

S - Aromas of sweet sugars and grainy malt.

T - Burnt caramel flavour that has a sweetish banana touch. A little one dimensional.

M - Light crisp mouthfell and low carbonation.

O - Wouldn't to go after this again.

500ml Bottle

Appearance - The beer pours a hazy brown colour with a very large frothy and fluffy beige coloured head. I can't make out how much carbonation there is and there is some average lacing. The head lasted for several minutes before it began to dissipate.

Smell - malts, cloves, bananas, breads/grains

Taste & Mouth - The beer has quite a bit of carbonation and feels light and creamy on the tongue. The taste is made up of malts, breads/grains, very light chocolate,and bananas. There is also a slightly metallic taste. The beer finishes with a malty banana aftertaste.

Drink - I enjoyed my first few sips of the beer but started to notice and slightly off taste as I progressed through the glass. It just seems to be lacking the balance of some of the other beers in this category. I wouldn't seek this one out again.

A- A careful pour yields a full glass of stable almost nitro like head. It's white with the slightest brown tint to it. For some reason, on later pours, the head has lost the brown tint, is frothier and less nitro-like. Long, thick lacing looks a little like puzzle pieces. Liquid is an almost opaque dark caramel. I'd grade this a lot higher if the liquid wasn't so dull. The head is beautiful.

S- Burnt wheat. Yeast. Hint of banana. Some sort of floral perfume. Metallic boiled greens. Alcohol once warm enough.

T- Caramel, burnt wheat and sweet, slightly soapy, banana after-taste. A bit metallic.

M-Light but lively carbonation. Almost crisp. Kind of dry. Too watery in my opinion.

D- Good. One 500ml bottle was enough.

Looks very nice and tastes good but not something Id want much more of.

Cloudy amber brown colour. Aroma is weak with malt, spice and wheat. Flavour is lots of malt and spice with wheat and hop. Mouthfeel is very nice. I'm a little surprised that this is ranked the low. I really enjoyed this beer. Purchased at the SAQ. Boogy!

Pour a murky mit hefe brown with a crowning white head that sticks around nicely, little lacing. Decent carbonation. Aroma of clove, caramelised wheat malt and ripe fruit. Flavor of banana, wheat malt, a firm hop bitterness without any real hop caracter past that.

Appropriate representation of the style, easily quaffable in large quantities, a true dunkelweiss form a rather lager brewery in Germany.

A - A hazy dark orange with lots of nice white head and lots of visible carbonation.
S - Sour, tart, citrusy, orangey, and slightly boozy towards the end. A yeasty smell, but not very strong.
T - Quite sour, lots of yeasty tastes quite a bit a malt, bread tastes and solid bitterness. No aftertaste and a whip quick finish.
M - Zingy, light, quite nice for the style.
D - Not so bad, but a bit too sour for drinkability.

Slightly hazy mid-brown colour. Pours a big head that settles to a thin film. Gives up just a hint of spotty lace.

Soft aroma dominated by cloves. Thin bodied mouthfeel, some creaminess. Taste is mild cloves, wheat. Gentle puckery finish.

Overall insufficient presence to be interesting. Not offensive, but not inspirational either - take it or leave it.
