Cloudy syrup brown color with a finger high frothy thick cream colored head that sticks around for a few minutes before crumbling down to a solid skim always present and drippy strings of lace with some minimal stickyness. Secure hefe nose of wheaty toastyness and clove spice with hints of apple skin and banana and some phenolic notes underneath. Taste is a toasted malt forthcoming in a pleasant full softness, playful and fluffy wheatyness with mild spice of clove and small notes of banana and melon husks. Feel is medium bodied with a nice soft fluffyness of nearly full carbonation that floats through the palate with ease and makes for some good drinking.

Poured whole bottle into my hefe glass and received a one-finger head that really receeded slowly. A nice smell combining citric notes such as lemon, orange and banana with some spices like clove and pepper. A quality lemon-zest taste with a smooth mouthfeel as the spices are balanced in this beer, so there is some crispness hidden in there with the hops. Also a good malt taste is tucked in there, something like cocoa or toffee, and there might be some caramel in there too for that hint of sweetness.
Semi-dry backbite seals the deal, as this is a great dark hefe and I would recommed this beer to anyone to try, not just dunkel fans.

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...

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.

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..

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.

Being the wheat beer fan that I am....

Pours a heavy duty head. Almost uncontrollable. Not all that dark. More of a cloudy rust. Not that much nose. Little citrus.

Taste is what counts. Caramel or malt mostly; some citrus, not much spice. Fairly sweet. Good carbonation. Somewhat dry finish. Malt hangs around awhile afterwards.

I would like to try this made into a Doppelbock. As this is pretty good beer. Note: Updating this review. This is one of the most drinkable beers available. Great session beer.
