I had this beer on-tap originally at the Hofbrauhaus in Germany and then again at the Hofbrauhaus in Las Vegas. You simply cannot find this beer at any store (in the US) outside of going to one of the Hofbrauhaus restaurants.

Simply put, this is the best beer I have ever had. I sure some of it had to do with how fresh it was in Munich, but everything about this beer is nearly perfect.

The color is a deep brown and it almost looks like it would be extremely heavy like a dopplebock. However, when it hits your lips, you can almost not believe how light and flavorful it is, and it is so smooth on the palate.

I have bought many a dunkle weiss in the states and have been unable to find anything close to how good this beer is. If you ever come across this beer, do yourself a favor and order a full liter.

Had this with some bratwursts and sauerkraut at Hofbrau Munchen in Panama City, FL, at Pier Park. Paired very well with my meal, and as far as I know you can only get this beer at their restaurants/gastropubs. Not the best dunkelweizen I've had, but solid nontheless, and a great accompaniment to German cuisine.

Pours a fairly deep brown, fairly clear, wIth minimal cream bread that lingers as a thin layer of foam. Aroma is banana, clove, toasted, bready malt, light caramel, and a hint of clove.

Flavor reveals more lightly sweet caramel upfront, with a bready, toasted, dry, and lightly bitter/earthy finish. There's a touch of citrus for complexity, and a lightly banana at the close.

A touch more malt body and lose the light metallic character, and this would be fantastic.
