On tap into a weizen glass @ Heidelberg Haus, Seattle. Pours a deep amber w/ a 1-finger beige head, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is dark bready malt, ripe banana, clove, fruity esters.

Taste is dark sweet wheat malt, clove and other spice, banana.

Mouthfeel is soft and mellow, nice carbonation.

Overall a solid dark hefeweizen, a tasty pairing for my plate of jaegerschnitzel and spaetzle.

A: Dark brown wood stain colour with a ever slight red tinge when held to the light, 2 fingers of rich creamy tan brown light foamy head, heavily carbonated.

S: Vanilla, bananas and coriander, yeasty typical mustiness of a hefe or dunkel weisse. Ever slight typical plastic scent.

T: Bananas, bananas, bananas, coriander, malty caramel. Very well balanced and delicious.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation. Fine bubbles in carbonation.

O: Delicious, love this Dunkelweissen. Not usually a fan of these, but I am of this one. Could see it going well with cheesecake.

A slight Amber hew. Mostly sweet with a thick mouth feel. The banana flavors of the yeast dominate the palate and not much else is going on here. I did finish my growler but I wouldn't buy it again. There are lots of better Weisse beers out there. The quest continues....

Compared to the regular Maisel Weisse this is a bit of a letdown. The mouthfeel is fairly thin and the flavours are more subdued than I expected. Not a bad dunkel but this brewer is known to be top shelf in wheat beers so a bit of a drop in expectations.

500ml bottle poured into a 22.3oz weizen glass. My first dunkel.

A - Pours with great big light tan head of thick foam. Hazy maple brown body with some amber highlights in it. Not really fantastic head retention and basically no lacing at all. A little underwhelmed.

S - A nice aroma of dark malt and spice, with light fruit notes as well. Light, bready crystal malt, ginger and nutmeg, upfront with some notes of dried plum, flaked wheat, banana, and yeast.

T - Lots of bready malt and yeast, with notes of ripe banana, plums, and a hint of molasses. Brown sugar, caramel malt, and crisp fruitiness. Some spices are present as well, nutmeg and ginger, with some clove. A solid profile for sure, but nothing worth writing home about.

M - Crisp and well carbonated, with a medium body. Finishes a bit dry, and leaves some yeasty residue after a while. Overall, pretty smooth.

D - An all around solid beer, and something I hope to have again. Definitely a step behind Maisel's Weisse Original, but still a tasty and damn drinkable brew.
