Brown with a long-lasting fluffy tan head.

Pleasant sweet malts and spice initially with some plum and yeast as an afterthought. Spot on and very promising.

Tastes perfectly sweet and creamy with an abundance of medium fruits, a hint of grain, and a well-timed spice hit coming in toward the end.

Smooth, medium-bodied and absurdly drinkable with no loss in flavor.

Plenty of character here can easily lead to excess, and maybe it's just because I'm in the mood for a Dunkelweizen at the moment, but this one seems quite a bit underrated.

500ml bottle with a BB date stamp of 15 Feb. 2015.
Pours slightly hazy, dark amber, with an abundance of carbonation bubbles rising to a durable, light but creamy, bone-colored head.
Aroma: some malt, more ripe banana and spices.
Flavor: follows smell, but more malt and less spicy.
Feel: light body; exceptionally smooth and creamy for a light bodied beer.

on tap at the wonderful helgas, the best german food around. poured into a proper 1 liter glass, i could barely lift this hazy amber brew with one hand. classic banana clove yeast complexion on the nose, with the darker wheat malt, sweet and red, not quite roasty and dark like the midnight stuff, its classically german. the taste confirms what the nose hinted at, this is one of the best examples of the style i have ver had, as good as the weihenstephaner stuff for sure, and they have to be the standard by which these beers are measured. the yeast is great, delicate, but heavy on the banana, and all the carbonation makes the darkness of the wheat almost hard to pick up on, but there is a mellow caramel sweetness running through it from the grain, which i really like. its so refreshing, and i had no problem drinking a liter before it warmed up much. i wish this was around on shelves, although i have a feeling the draft drinks a loot nicer than some older bottles might, but id like to see it nevertheless. a perfect pairing for anything on the menu down at helgas, which is a must if you've never been. awesome beer, just a beauty.
