On tap into a weizen glass.

A-The beer was mostly murky and the color of overripe bananas. There was about one finger of dirty-white head that faded to a ring pretty quickly. Some lacing on the glass.

S-Pleasant aromas of banana, wheat, and a touch of clove spice. A little musty smelling.

T-Mild flavors here: wheaty, light malts with a touch of spice from the yeast, and some banana fruit. In other words, the taste followed the smell.

M-Easy drinking with a light to medium body and (for the style) very little carbonation. A touch watery.

O-This was a fairly simple beer. The flavors were not unpleasant, but were just middle of the road in both character and complexity. I would have preferred a little more carbonation and a touch of citrus flavor or something else to liven things up.

Pours as magnificent as any German weissbier with a warm, cloudy caramel color and an immense, active beige head. Near perfect retention and sheets of concentric dripping candle wax lacing. The aroma is rich toasty bananas with a backbone of melanoidins. Flavor follows suit with lots of sweet yeast flavors and rich malt support. Filling, liquid bread feel and very drinkable. Inoffensive and carefully put together. Although this is not my favorite paulaner iteration and not my favorite dunkel, it is very good and I would drink it again.

Pours a dark cloudy amber colour into the glass, with alot of foam like all weissbier. It has a mild smell of yeast and malt, maybe some hint of citrus. The taste is the same as the smell. You can also feel a little bitterness in the after taste. A good beer but not as good as the naturtrüb.

Fresh, smooth, not very complex, just roast and chocolate malt aroma and chocolate malttaste. Medium satisfying mouthfeel, great after Sushi with wasabi and ginger. Pure brown, lace. Dry aftertaste. Some malt, banana and citrus, bit of yeast. Well carbonated. Thanks Mark for bringing back from germany.
