look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

500ml bottle bought from GapWines, Belfast...

Poured a hazy copper brown colour. Slightly off white head poured as expected for a Weizen - big, thick and foamy. A steady stream of carbonation bubbles maintains a very thick covering throughout... some decent clingy lacing...

Aroma - Good strong spiciness - cloves and allspice, lots of yeasty and wheaty notes, raw palm sugar notes, light toasted bread, some notes of banana and chocolate mixed together, biscuity malts, tart fruits (pears, apples and lemons), sea salt, quite floral and perfumed...

Taste - Good strong wheatiness mixed with toasted bread, yeasty, light brown sugar sweetness, definite clove and banana, light cola notes, light metallics notes, some pear and apple, nutmeg and pepper spiciness...

Feel - Very smooth and creamy... medium bodied... exceptionally quaffable - i could happily knock this back all evening...

Overall - An excellent Dunkel... definitely recommended...

BB 09/05/2008, served chilled in a weizen glass.

A: beautiful dark chestnut brown colour, cloudy, topped with a creamy and tight beige frothy head with brilliant retention; carbonation is rather lively.
S: light bananas and green mangos abound, going hand in hand with a thick layer mixed of caramelised sugar, bready+chocolatey malts and syrup-coated chestnuts. All elements come in a harmony, with a slightly more assertive touch of fruity fragrance. Good!
T: the foretaste comes very mild... then suggesting a healthy intake of bitter-sweet maltiness mixed of dark malts, wheats, and nuttiness... gradually the sour-sweet fruitiness (featuring mainly mangos) take over until reaching the lightly dry and soothingly grainy finish. Overall, all elements are in place, making this a rather balanced, but not "colourful" or quite delicious, dunkel weizen.
M&D: the fluffy mouthfeel upfront leads towards a medium-bodied mid-taste, although the finishing touch is a little more spritzy than necessary. All in all, this dunkel weizen is very decent in quality, showing a balanced profile b/w fruit-esters and wheat+malts. Although this is not my favourite type of ale, I won't hesitate tasting it again (but preferably on draught!).

3.15/5  rDev -14.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: hazy with a brown colour. The head is light tan, large and rich. Moderate retention and some lacing.
Aroma: nice sweet malts and bread aroma.
Taste: sweet malts, caramel and some yeasts.
Mouthfeel: silky, average carbonation, moderate alcoholic strength (5.4% ABV) and light body.
Finish: clean and short sweet aftertaste.

Overall: Not very impressive. Average wheat beer. I was expecting more from a dunkel weizen. I prefer the original Maisel's Weisse.

Amazing that this beer has only been reviewed twice, I would have thought this beer had reached the US by now.

Appearance is good, a murky, dark brown beer with a huge thick, stable head.

Smell is typical, clove, chocolate that is a little earthy. A phenolic and fruity smell.

Taste is spicy with some cloves, which are a little musty. The yeast give the beer a nice 'coarse' mouthfeel. The dark malt taste like chocolate and cacao. The malt is grainy and has a strong wheat taste.
Body is medium and the beer is slightly sweet. Aftertaste is dry and drinkability is OK. To me this tastes like the normal Weisse, but with the dark malt pushing away the fruity notes, the Weisse has.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a tall, dense, foamy light brown head was so solid it looked like I could scoop it out like ice cream. Deep cola colored beer with a hazy chestnut hue. Moderately strong aroma is dominated by banana and bubble gum esters. Mouthfeel is light a fluffy. Not a whole lot of flavor up front except for a faint astringency. Mild banana yeast flavors and some cocoa mix towards the finish. The aroma hinted at some nice flavors, but they never materialized. A tad watery and boring. Nothing wrong per se, but there are better Dunkels.
