Just a plain good dunkel weizen.

Naturally color is dark, more like dark amber than pitch black. Nice tan head and some lacing.

Smell is malty, say bisquity, with citrus and banana with some discrete yeast.

Taste is refreshing, medium bodied, somehow bready, smooth. Very good balance between the fruity flavors, the malts and the hops.

Mouthfeel is round, with a lightly bitter finish. Good indeed.

Drinkability is high, I surely will have another.

¡Salud!

Had a .5 liter bottle from my Baden-Wuerttemberg Christmas package. Thanks Georg
As expected this beer is a cloudy dull brown. There are lots a chunks of various size. It also came with 2 finger tan head that dissipated rather quickly. The smell is sweet banana bread, it is a very good Hefe smell. The taste is also almost entirely banana no clove at all. This is a very easy drinking and smooth Hefe. I look forward to another one of these.

This dunkel is pretty similar to the hefe-weissbier naturtrub. it pours a dark honey colour with a thick white foam head. the smell is slightly perceptible but it previews the soft, woody flavour with a very slight bitterness. It has a Full body; another good beer by paulaner, although not top notch.

16.9oz, half liter bottle served in a proper weis beer glass. (what’s up with the picture of the can??)

This beer poured a dark muddy cola colored body with a thick, choppy dark off-white speckled head.

The nose was a mix of mild tropical fruits, yeast, wheat and mild chocolate.

Taste was smooth and light bodied. Wheat, mild chocolate, caramel, banana, mild mild tropical fruit, yeast and faint malt. Very mild bitterness that balances the beer yet never comes forward to overpower.

When I was in Germany this was my go to beer at all the places I went in Bavaria. Simply amazing. I brought a couple bottles back and waited a few months to taste them again and the flavor had definitely mellowed and lost a lot of it’s flavor. Still… an amazing beer that it’s a shame they don’t export.
