From 0,5 glass bottle bought at vinmonopolet Trondheim, Norway.
A - Dark brown color, fairly clear considering it's a german weizen. Thick head with good retention.
S - As I first smelled this beer I only got the malt profile: mild roasted malts and some faint caramel. However as it warms up I can get some more estery notes, especially banana is evident and melds very well with the malt profile.
T - Same problem as with smelling, I initially poured this too cold and was disappointed. After approaching a warmer temperature the banana comes through, and makes this beer taste waaaay better. Tastes as it smells, a nice lightly roasted malt profile blended with mainly banana and other esters. The finish is dry and pleasant for drinkability, however the creamy mouthfeel doesn't hold quite together all the way to the end.
M - medium high carbonation, creamy.
O - Who would have thought serving temperature affects the beer? ... At least I got another reminder with this tasting experience. Served at the proper temperature this was a nice balanced brew that focused on the malt profile and let the esters play second fiddle. Clean and well brewed, good drinkability. Personally I think I'd prefer a Dunkel with more emphasis on the yeast produced flavors.

Pint bottle into a pilsner.
A - Dark brown like a porter and cloudy. A tall head that is about the same consistency as the head on a cola and disappears about as quickly. No lacing.
S - Slight esters of a wheat beer and quite a bit of malt.
T - Pretty much follows the nose. A hint of the banana flavour of a weizen but with quite a bit of crystal and some chocolate. No hops present.
M - Light and refreshingly ebullient.
O - This was actually a great beer. However, it was not a very good example of what I expect from a dunkelweizen. I wonder if this beer wasn't fermented at the low limit of the temperature range for its yeast.
