look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a slightly hazed/cloudy- amber/peach color, generous frothy head, & sheet lace upon the glass. The aroma that I noticed first was that smoke smell, earthy grainy malt, the start is sweet, the middle is medium, as is the carbonation, & the finish is faintly hopped, dry, acidic & overall a pretty decent beer for the the type. I myself can do w/o it, mostly due to the aroma. There are many other Dunkle Weizens I much better perfer then this one.

A nice effort. A huge head, aided in part by the obligatory swirling of the yeast at the bottom with the last inch of the beer. The typical banana/bubblegum weisse flavors and a slight caramel flavor to tell you it's a dunkel. Is it my imagination or have Hacker-Pschorr beers gotten smoother in recent years? I know their Oktoberfest has . . .

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #87 (Apr 2014):

Bread, Clove, Banana, Smooth

The beer oozes greatness, this is an excellent benchmark example of the Dunkelweizen that all non-German brewers should strive to match. Ripe banana and clove are at the perfect levels and the maltiness is like having a loaf of bread in your mouth.

-------------------

Review from Oct 2001:

Presentation: 12 oz slender brown bottle with a regal label. Freshness date on the label.

Appearance: Cloudy tawny leather brown with a very healthy creamy frothy white crown that comes from a bubbly carbonation.

Smell: Clove and banana obviously, esters and a brown malt aroma / mild carob. Soft malt sweetness and grain aromas.

Taste: Smooth, full mouthfeel within the medium body. Nice even malt sweetness, like fresh banana bread. Mild clove flavours with hints of alcoholic esters. Toasted malt notes pair well with the fruitiness. Hop bitterness is very mild, tea-like, a bit herbal, spicy. Has a nice grain dryness from the wheat. Finishes dry with a faint medicinal after taste.

Notes: A most extraordinary Weisse beer. For beer drinkers not accustomed to bottle conditioned beers such as this one, it is highly recommend pouring the entire bottle in the glass, including the yeast. The yeast is one of the best parts of this beer, as in it contributes most of the flavour to this beer.
