3.6/5  rDev -4%

Poured into a hefe glass at Tiroler Hut in London.

A- very dark with caramel brown highlights and a big fluffy white head holding some yeast.

S- not a lot here. I was expecting banana, clove and a little roast, all I get is some sweet grain and corn.

T- like the nose the flavor is seriously lacking. Grainy wheat and a hint of toasty bitterness, and some metallic yeastiness.

M- medium to medium light in body but with the creamy wheat character and high carbonation I expect of a hefe.

O- I was very disappointed by this beer. Fortunately I drank it after finishing my excellent Austrian meal so it did not get in the way of that.

mid sized bottle, with best before dating. Pours the expected dark chocolaty brown with a faint tinge of plums, head quickly goes bye bye and this leaves no lacing (booo). Fruity nose, mouthfeel is kind of sharp and prickly and flavor notes are suprisingly minor, just some cola, overripe bananas and a slight metalic finish, yuck, there are much better dunkle weiss beer out there, give this one a pass, I wish I had...

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

Appearance – Very dark with a rising head that went down slowly.

Smell – Nice, dark burnt malt aroma.

Taste – Roasted malt flavors dominate this bier. The burnt nature of this ale works with a slight molasses sweetness to quench the pallet.

Mouthfeel – Flat and smooth; medium-bodied.

Drinkability – This went down well. It’s definitely not a session beer, but probably a good one to have on tap if you can find it.

Comments – This is currently labeled as a dunkel weitzen. It is completely off-style from this and is more like a classic German schwartz (black) bier. I rated this in accordance with this style.

Lite and refreshing. A perfect dark wheat brew. We love it down here in The Bahamas!

Review according to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15B). Bottle 50 cl - batch L041107. AROMA: faint wheat, caramel and vanilla notes. no hop aroma. APPEARANCE: dark brown color and opaque. thick tanned head with good retention. TASTE: some faint inappropriate roasted notes. faint wheat background. low bitterness. finishes somewhat sweet. no hop flavours. PALATE: medium-light body with some creamy sensation. moderate carbonation. OVERALL: a not very malty nor fruity nor spicy weizen.

In the aroma is a rich aroma of bread, bread crust, molasses, and a touch of raisin. The body is nearly opaque and very dark brown with mahogany highlights. The head is a creamy khaki. The flavor at first includes dark, berry-like roasted malt along with a slightly sour, bread crust-like quality. The fruitiness lightens over time and becomes more sweet and tart alongside the roasted malt. The malt lingers and leaves a grainy, bread-like aftertaste. It's quite carbonated and frothy but crisp and medium-light in body.

Quite tasty and refreshing. It's very crisp and highly carbonated, which sharpens the otherwise smooth and rich maltiness. It's definitely more dunkel than weissbier, but style aside, it's still really delicious.

Purchased at the LCBO for just under $4.00 for a 500ml bottle. Served at 4deg C in a tulip

A- 4.25- Nice and dark!! Pours a nice head that is gone in no time.

S- 3.75- A bit lacking. Can smell the malt and caramel

T- 4.0- Very good. Super light for the ABV. Malty and sweet.

M- 4.0- Dry and a lot of carbonation.

O- 4.11- Nice beer. Would buy again. Refreshing but dark

Food Pairing

This nice little beer went well with...... Rabbit stew. Brazed then root veggies in the oven you go!!

Enjoy
