3.84/5 rDev +1.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
A: Pours all massive beige, compact head which settles after a while as the murky brown liquid rises. Lovely lacings.
S: The ripe bananas are overwhelming. Spices and yeast. Cloves. Bready.
T: A little bit milder than the smell. The bananas are there, still very ripe and very sweet, the breadyness is still there, while the yeast is lighter as well as the spices. Bitter hops are present - I can't find that at all in the smell.
M: Body is medium and very smooth, almost creamy. Carbonation is un-offensively rich while the lingering aftertaste is both sweet and bitter.
O: A Dunkelweizen that is kind of mild but yet still quite complex.

On draft at Capone's in Norristown, PA during Philly beer week. The Warsteiner reps were gracious, paid for my first draft and answered all of my questions. From what I understand this beer will now be available in the U.S. in bottles and kegs (50L).
Appearance is a cloudy brown, with more apparent unfiltered yeast than Franziskaner dunkel. The smell is overwhelmingly caramel with some banana esters. Taste is very smooth with predominant flavors of caramel, clove and banana. This is one of my favorite styles and I would routinely keep kegs of this dunkelweiss in my beer cooler as soon as it is available.

Poured into weizen glass, thick sustained fluffy head. Orange copper color with more than ample carbonation. Sharp, fruity taste with no bitterness. Tastes more like a weizen than a dunkel....small amount of sediment at the bottom of the bottle, but i "swished" it german style and poured into the glass. A good example of true Bavarian weizen...
