Poured from a 330 mL bottle into a flared hefe glass with a moderate hand. Best by 11/13 according to the bottle. Hmmmm. That's next month. I recently sucked down a sixer of Hacker Pschorr's regular Weisse offering, so I wanted to try the darker counterpart.

A: Attractive dark amber body. Surprising clarity. Slightly off-white head, about 3 fingers worth. Died down to a thin coat after about 3 minutes and hung around for the full glass. Light lacing.

S: Dark fruit, raisins and malt coupled with a lighter presence of typical hefe scents - banana, subtle spice. Yeast. Hitting the mark pretty well here.

T: Malt and sweet caramel notes up front with a smooth transition into fruity hefe flavors. Toasted bread. Very light bitterness - barely perceivable - on the finish. A wheat tartness develops in the aftertaste after a few gulps. No alcohol presence.

M: Moderate to high carbonation. Bit prickly like a hefe. Body is somewhat lighter than I think the flavor profile calls for. Lacks the creaminess I enjoy in the style. Serviceable.

O: Tasty beer, but certainly not blowing me away. Perhaps a bit past its prime. I'm squeaking it in about a month before it's recommended date. Wish I had paid closer attention when I picked it up. I gave HP's Weisse very high marks, but this does not perform at quite the same level. Not bad though, I'll have to try it fresher.

Prost!

Served on tap into a weizen glass (just like the one in the picture above)
A--Rich, hazy brown color with a thick, creamy head that fizzles off and doesn't really leave lacing. Looks exactly like you'd draw up a dunkle weiss.
S--Malty aroma, overall. Some banana and a trace of clove (less than I was expecting, at least). Some yeast/bready smells as well. Quite nice.
T--Follows the nose, mostly. A bunch of banana with some yeast/bread on top of that. Full malt with minimal hops, giving it a candy taste. A little dry at the end.
M--Rich & full. Carbonation gives it a refreshing feel and balances out the slight dryness.
O--This is the perfect example of the style. The Germans can really get a lot of mileage out of only four ingredients. Others would have to add a couple of ingredients to get this much of a varied flavor profile.
