A: Pours a cloudy brown that is quite beautyful, with a cream head and good retention.

S: Banana and some citric smells with some spices.

T: Follows the smells with banana and citric feels, but with a lot of bread and herbal flavours.

M: Spicy and refreshing with some tropical banana and citric aftertaste.

O: A very balanced beer, not too watery and not too heavy, but exactly in the middle experience. A very good beer with a real soul.

T^his beer pours a nice medium dark brown with a medium head. It smells of fruit and spice. It tastes of fine malts-fruity and spicy. It is a bit thin in the mouth with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Its color is nice but I expected a yeast haze that I did not get perhaps it was just all stuck to the bottom of the bottle. Definatly on the sweet side for a hefe.

On-tap at Paulaner im Tal, on to the beer:

This dunkelweizen is chestnut brown in color, topped with thick, fluffy head which retains well. A good aroma of cinnamon crusted apples with fennel makes the beer even more tempting, which follows through to the taste. The flavors pop out; pleasant phenols at first, then followed by spiced apples. With a dash of clove, the flavor turns to be very appealing. It's light-medium-bodied, with appropriate carbonation.

Like its popular helles sibling, the dunkelweizen is one to respect. One to try.
