I can get this beer at a lot of places in China. For an import beer, it sells at a reasonable price a lot of times, too. On top of that, this is truly a fantastic beer. It's rich, full-bodied, and smooth. It pours nicely into a glass but also comes great out of a bottle. The aftertaste isn't too overpowering when coupling this with a meal, so I like that also. Give this one a try if you haven't!

Looks a bit on the lighter side, which is in the taste reflected, compared to other Dunkels with which it must consider itself a competitor. But it's nice. It's no Schneider Aventinus but it's better than, for example, Erdinger Dunkel.

Dark amber brown colour with a thick steady head of foam. Typical smell of cloves, caramel and yeast with some citric and overripe banana. These flavours continue in the taste. Very rich, but the citric (lemon zest) tends to dominate a bit too much, which also makes the finish a bit stingy. Good Dunkelweizen, but could have used a bit more balance.
