Nice pomegranate/cranberry color with a nice head. Smells sweet and spicy and cloves. Taste is light and not heavy at all. Very little body which is surprising. Can definitely taste the wheat and reminds me if champagne. Almost like a Belgium lambic. Very nice refreshing beer

Major foam from first pour to last in the tall Peroni lager glass. Thick piles of suds. They call this a dark Weizen but it's a medium amber in color. Sudsy mouthfeel that is the glory of the German brews.

The flavor has a little of the clove taste, but just enough to be addictively spicy. Almost a hint of cinnamon. Fragrant nose as you sip. This is the classic German wheat beer taste, though not overdone. Slightly sweet. Long warm rich taste that ends with some faint bitterness. Well balanced and highly drinkable.

We get used to paying these ridiculous prices for "craft" beers. Here's an excellent classic for four bucks for the 500 ml bottle. Purchased at Bine & Vine in San Diego.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pours with a finger of rich head. Dark orange color with a muddy transparensy. Above average active carbonation in glass while drinking.

Smell: full bodied wheat aroma macks the drinker right away. Brighter bodied fruits warm up in the body. Lots of doughy bready yeast round out the aroma well. A solid undertone of exotic spices runs throughout.

Taste: creamy malt hits up front with accents of sweet caramel and molasses with a light to medium depth fruit body. The fruits continue to darken and dance on the palate throughout. High carbonation brings a ton of the lighter accents out. Chewy malt left behind on the palate.

Mouthfeel: big carbonation is king here. Huge bubbly feeling brings the brighter fruits out with lingering yeast body as well.

Overall: much brighter for a dark weizen then I expected. This brew was filled with bubbly fruits and medium bodied breast malt tones. Slow sipper due to the big carbonation factor.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Coppery-brown, golden accents. Visually is closer to a weizenbock to than a hefe.

S - Smell is fainter than with the Bräuweisse.

T - From the colour you’d expect it to me maltier, spicier and yeastier but if anything it has less taste than its hefe sibling.

M - Mouthfeel is still pretty good and the carbonation is on the money.

O - It's a well-contructed beer which is found slightly wanting for malt, wheat and spice on the nose and tongue. I'd be really interested to try this fresh on tap. I suspect it might be a whole different ball game.

Popped open a .5L bottle for dessert. This is lighter colored than a dunkel, but more of an amber than your common hefe. Off the bat, it's sort of like Schneider Weisse for the darker bread notes. Overall it does follow more of the notes of a hefeweizen with mild clove, vanilla, and a hint of banana. It's toasty and bready, but also has occasional dark crispy wheat notes. It's smooth and deep, worth trying with and without the yeast dumped in—it's a little brighter before. Man, I'm wishing I didn't only buy one bottle. Get yourself some.

I pour this one carefully, and am rewarded with 2 fingers of off-white head over a caramel colored body. The body is translucent and shows some seriously good looking stuff floating around in it. The head dies to a half finger rather quickly, then retains this for a while. It makes a mild attempt at lacing.

Caramel and grain are the main aromas I get. A little yeast and dark fruit compliment. Further exploration brings out grassy hops.

Grainy with a yeast overture. Caramelized brown sugar adds a really nice sweetness to the mix. Grassy finish with a decent spiced blend on the end.

This brew is medium bodied, and smoooth. It goes down nice and refreshing with no residue left behind.
