Review from 4/2010 notes. Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a semi-opaque brown/gold color. One finger off-white head, dissipated quickly leaving lacing. Aroma of wheat, clove, light carmel malt. A pleasant dunkelwiezen with strong carbonation, light fruit, spice and wheat flavors. Slightly rougher than Weinstephanen, but still very pleasant. Refreshing and tasty. Will buy again.

500ml bottle poured into a weizen glass
A: Pours a hazy golden color with a full three-finger head that settles quite slowly
S: Clove & banana with hints of bubblegum and wheat
T: This matches the nose perfectly- clove & bananas up front with lesser notes of bananas and wheat to round it out.
M: Medium-bodied with a nice zest though a short-ish finish.
O: I tried this tonight along with Ayinger's Brau-Weisse. Both were similar and both very good, though the Helles style of the Brau (vs the Ur's Dunkel) showed a bit better.

Pours a hazy brownish orange color. Big head on the pour with great frothy retention and thick lines of lacing.

Aroma of smooth wheat, yeast and floral hops.

Big wheat flavor on the bready end and quite smooth. Solid citric hop with spicy ginger notes. Yeast and clove character rounds it out. Excellent balance.

Very smooth feel and well carbonated. Medium body with lingering yeast texture.

Really good dunkel. Lots of flavor and complexity. A treat to consume.

$2.60 for the 500ml bottle.

It pours a dark gold/rusty colour, hazy, with a solid 1 finger head of foam and it leaves some excellent lacing.

It smells spicy, mostly fruity. Cloves, bananas, big whiffs of wheat. Very nice.

Big banana flavours in the taste, mild clove, wheat, nice flavours all around. Delicious and so soothing and easy drinking. Lowish carbonation and medium bodied makes for an enjoyable mouthfeel.

This is such a great value for what you get. It's been way to long since I last drank this.

#500 on untappd! Cheers!

Body isnt as dark as I expected, but still just dark enough to be a Dunkel. Looks almost exactly like Schneider Weisse. Head isnt as fluffy as I want either.

Smell is more roasty malt than yeast esters. I do get a hint of banana and sweet clove. Lots of wheat twang as well.

Initially theres just sweet rich roasted wheat. Then comes in a chewy malty banana. Very full bodied and thick for the style. Hints of an estery booze as well. Sweet notes of caramel and toffee flash across the tongue every so often. It really meshes with the banana flavors well.

Although its full bodied, it finishes smooth and clean, like every German beer should.

50cl bottle poured into Weihenstephan Weissbier glass.

BBE May 2012

A- 3 finger creamy white head producing good lacing/retention. The body is a slightly darker shade of cloudy amber/orange classic hefeweizen colour. Reminds of Schneider weiss original.

S- Classic clove with a more fruity quality than expected. Along with the usual hint of banana, some apple and pear is noticeable.

T- Clove and banana up front, with this sweet juicy apple note coming through in the clean light finish.

M- Medium/light body and carbonation. Refreshing but not lifeless/weak bodied.

D- A very tasty weisse. I really liked the more complex fruity notes compared to the more mainstream examples. Retained a good refreshing mouthfeel. Would happily drink on a summers afternoon under the shade of an oak tree.
