bottle as an extra. POurs really dark, much darker than I expected for a hefe. PLenty of citrus and wheat in the nose like I expect but the palate.... Not really what I wanted. More full bodied and syrupy. Its like a hefe extract, if there was one. I could only drink a sample of this not the whole thing, it's ok.

look: 1.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Served on tap in a cervoise at Michael's Bistro (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Without this site, I would have complained that they had given me the wrong beer. Dishwater brown with 1-finger foamy off-white head with decent retention but no real lace. Very strange looking and not attractive, even if you know it's not going to look like the usual weiss.

S: Muted banana and lemon with a tangy sour note

T: The flavor is bready malty like most dunkels with less banana but much more clove. Overall the flavors are muddled and don't have much crispness.

M: Doesn't have the weighty feel of a decent dunkel -- watery and sour finish.

O: Wasted $5.50 on this guy for sure -- definitely not what I was looking for.

This beer has a great and strong Weiss beer aroma. Every characteristic of a Weiss is in it. There is a lot banana and peppery clove. There was only about a finger and a half of fizzy off white head with no retain ability. It has ruddy brown body that I was not overly fond of. It was just a bit odd. The flavor starts off great and it has a fresh flavor but you can’t use this beer as a sipper it gets a plastic like taste as it sits. For the most part it once again has great Weiss profile clove, pepper and a bit of tropical fruit. It was very fizzy and a bit thin in the mouthfeel.

Although some may consider this a dunkleweiss, Unertl is actually an original style weissbier, which is a little darker than a hellesweizen and not as chocolatey as a dunkel. Natural, local spring water forms the base for a 70 percent malted wheat grist bill, well above a typical weiss concentration. A warmer temperature, top fermentation takes place in traditional, open containers using a special flocculent yeast strain developed by the family, and a small percentage of chocolate malt gives this original its deep amber color. Natural yeast sediment forms in the container due to bottle or cask conditioning, which can sometimes be a little chunky.

Full, yet soft, with a rounded body, you'll find notes of almond, soft banana, and clove. The head is creamy and generous with substantial mouth-feel. The richness of the yeast is evidenced by a silky glass cling and the finish is sweet and clean. In fact, the glass is absolutely filthy with yeast by the time you're done--very rich in vitamin B12 and protein. Complex and subtle, it's not only refreshing but has body enough that it never becomes too sweet.

This beer is quite simply one of the finest in the world of any variety.

While I first sampled this beer in Germany nearly 15 years ago, I'm thrilled that it's recently become available in the U.S. I've also noted that several reviewers have this beer confused with Unertl Muhldorf, which is a completely separate brewery and product.

Pours dark brown like a dunkrlweizen. Had to recheck bottle label to be sure right one. Light nose with banana clove. Good amount of banana on the palate with toasted wheat cracker. Yeasty action in there too. Hard to get past the atypical appearance.

A- light brown, almost looks like that of the root beer gummy candies, white head raises fast on the poor then dies down to a thin layer that stay through the drink

S- earthy roots and spice, floral, vanilla,banana, caramel. sweet hops

T- very sweet and light, there is banana and caramel like the smell

M- VERY smooth and light body with pretty much no carbonation feel

D- This is a great easy to drink beer for any time of the year or day. Would be a great way to introduce new drinkers to a variety

Pours a muddy brown, hazy color with a big bubbly white head and some lacing. Aroma is mild, kind of like a more malty hefeweizen.

Taste is a bit malty but with some hefe like qualities, bananas, cloves wheat bitterness.

Mouthfeel is average, not as sharp as a hefe but rich enough and not watery.

Drinkability is ok. Not that remarkable a beer.
