Amber with a bubbly tan head...some dark caramel, cloves, and a hint of lemon on the nose...nice sweet banana and a very light caramel flavor on the buds..creamy texture..easy drinking...a nice carbonation level but not overdone...

One of my "old" all-time favorites that I'm realizing is still good, but not as spectacular as I thought a couple of years ago...still an enjoyable beer I would buy again...

A nice brown brew with an ample white head of foam. The aromas hit you in the nose with a 1-2 punch of spices/cloves and bananas. The taste is fruity and spicy all at once, with no alcohol to be found...anywhere! The mouthfeel is light and airy, yet substantial for a dunkel. The drinkability is endless and that's the way that it should be...

On tap, enjoyed on a sunny afternoon at Wurst.
Orange brown, slightly hazed, with a 2 inch foamy tan head. Foam faded to a floating film
leaving small streaks of lace.
Smell is of wheat, a bit of yeast, spice, and some banana aromas.
Taste has all the same elements of wheat, spices, and caramel sweetness. Slightly smoky
(more than the Erdinger Dunkel).
This beer has a lower level of carbonation, finishes with a slightly crisp mouthfeel.
Overall, this is a very good dunkelweizen, too bad I have glanced over it before.

look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance- beautiful look off the pour, just a great thick frothy foamy head, Lots of small bubbles rapidly stream fast up the glass, dark cloudy murky brown with even bits of sediment to be clearly seen, just beautiful look,

Smell- yeast and wheat, slight banana and other sweet malty aromas to be noticed, enjoyable but not overwhelming nose

Taste- nice banana, clove, yeast, wheat, slight malt sweetness, but maintains a nice balance and does not become over the top sweet, very nice and refreshing long finish,

Mouthfeel- Very light and crisply refreshing, very smooth mouth feel with nice carbonation

Drinkability- extraordinary drinkablity, i could drink this all nite long, very thirst quenching and well balanced, really nice finish and flavor, very great example of the style,

Purchased from Great Spirits, Huntsville, AL.

A: Pours a dark orange, almost brown color with a very thick tan head. Some brown chunks of yeast fell from the bottom of the bottle into the glass -- I'm not knocking the presentation, but it deserves note.

S: Malty, slightly sweet. Almost like... chocolate? Nah, gotta be imagining things.

T: Citrusy, slightly orangey. Like a good hefeweizen, but with a very slight maltiness that helps to even out the beer. I'm liking it quite a bit.

M: Moderate mouthfeel, to-style for a hefe of dunkel.

D: I'm not always a big fan of dunkels, but I like this one. Good marks.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: rosy, cloudy, beneath a lush, looming, lovely dollop of a creamy, puddingesque head.
Aroma: creamy, clovey, there's the banana, too, with a whiff of other tropical fruits, sensuous, arousing, inherently likable.
Great grit and grab on the palate with first sip, nice blitz of hops, followed by lush, mellow malt. Great body, long, lingering finish, persistent flavor. Smooth, and very easy on the tongue, Goes down the gullet nice as a dream.
A good dunkel-weisse is a wonderful thing, and Hacker's is a sterling example.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Very dark mahogany brown color. Head is offwhite and fades to an eight inch, less than I would have liked to see. Minimal lacing.

S - Caramely biscuity malts with some rich yeasty flavor, hints of licorice.

T/M - Starts out with a sharp carbonation bite, medium consistency and a dark grape like malt and yeast flavor. Faintly caramely and bready. Not much else to say about that.

D - Overall an good tasting beer. Flavors are pretty simple but still very solid and traditional.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 12 oz bottle - label actual reads Weisse Dark (but it matches the pictures, so I assume this is the same beer). Produced on date on the label.

Appearance: Dark orangish brown color, with a good sized head. Just a bit cloudy. Head fades mostly, but leaves a bit of lacing.

Smell: Lots of yeasty aroma, banana and just a bit of cloves. Nice malty sweetness undertones.

Taste: Similar to the aroma - nice yeasty flavors, some banana flavors, and a good malt backbone. Carbonation is a bit higher than I would have preferred.

Overall impression: Other than the prickly carbonation, this was a great beer - nice balance of flavors, highly drinkable, should go well with food

Another excellent beer from Hacker-Pschorr.

A: Slightly hazy deep amber color. Big foamy head has OK retention and leaves bits of lace. Somewhat active carbonation.

S: Caramel, lemon, coriander and cloves interplay nicely.

T: Yeasty and dry. A sharp coriander and clove bitterness bites at the tongue. Sweet toffee and banana flavors mingle in the back ground.

M: Medium body with the high carbonation level associated with this style.

D: Very nice beer that I'd love to visit again. Good for a summer session.

Had on-tap at a local German Joint...

- Cloudy brown/amber with a tint of orange.. creamy off-white head that was about an inch thick... took a moment to settle down to a thick stream of gooey lacing.

- Smell of fruit.. ester, banana Belgian yeast scent.. slight creamy malt..

- Rather smooth, fruity, yeasty, little bit of bread... some clove, cinnamon..

- Little dry and left a strong aftertaste... but overall good..

- Very drinkable... was great ice cold, smooth.. perfect carbonation... not bad.

* Just had, but reviewing from memory..
