So to celebrate my last Friday in Freising, picked this brew. Cold,snowy day, dunkle weiss sounds good.
A slightly aggressive pour yields a nice, light tan head. Medium thickness, doesn't really have the super-thick density or rocky foam peaks like some others, but decent. The color reminds me a bit of tea with a bit of lemon. Orange highlights are revealed as the glass is held to the light. As the rest is decanted, a very light orange-brown colored Dunkle.
The nose is suprisingly fuller than expected. Brown sugar, caramel, well-overripe bananas, tart cherry-wood like mustiness. Pepper, and a surprisingly large amount of phenol warmth for a low ABV beer. The alcohol adds a nice light warmth to the aroma, this keeps the initial sweetness in very nice balance. finishing with a light touch of Yeast.
Flavor is upfront surprisingly cherry like, sweet yet tart and a bit sharp. The light heat of the alcohol comes into play,then a really nice amount of carbonation brings in a light, peppery-sweet finish. Caramel, orange, and a light plum flavor I also find.
The overall taste is ominated a bit by sweet malt, but the carbonation provides enough scrubbing bubbles to balance out the brew. The lacking complexity make drinkablilty remain in the mid range. Whereas others I've had, every mouthful is an explosion of pepper, fruit, grain, and yeast..this one plays it a bit safe. The aromatics really surpass the flavor, but overall it is a really good Dunkle-Weiss that I will buy again.

On tap at the famous Hofbrauhaus. Its a ruddy brown with creamy thin head & dense lace. The smell is caramel malt, vanilla, and a slight (very subtle) pepper. The taste is dry, leathery, and subtle malt in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is slightly chewy, with nice carbonation. The drinkability is very good, with the dry subtle flavors giving interest to a very refreshing, if unremarkable beer.

Amber-brown color. Foam: not beautiful not compact. Beige color.
At the smell a lot of banana (too much), caramel and wheat in the background.
At the taste, wheat, light spices. Well. Not too much to talk about. Then some banana again, even if not so strong. Faint. Not sweet, but not very tasty. It slips away.
Light body. In the aftertaste too, very few notes. Just some caramel.
