Poured from a can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a one finger head of puffy white foam. The head has a good level of retention, fading over time to leave a moderate level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is very strong of a tropical fruit aroma with tons of pineapple, mango, and tangerine. Along with these smells comes notes of melon and lime as well as a decent showing of a grapefruit and earthy hop. With a touch of mustiness as well as a bit of peach and apple, a very sweet and inviting aroma is produced overall.
Taste – The taste of the beer starts out with a nice tropical fruit (tangerine, mango, papaya, pineapple) and light bready like flavor mixed with some grapefruit and light earthy hop. As the taste advances the hop gets stronger all while the pineapple and mango fade a bit. At the same time other flavors of a light grapeiness as well as a bit of apple and an increase in the tangerine and some orange flavors, come onto the scene, and with a little bit of herb, one is left with a nice, still citrusy, and decently hopped taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is medium in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather low. Overall, rather nice for the style.
Overall – A rather tasty brew overall. I would certainly get this on more routine occasion if offered.

Can

A mildly hazy brown with a dense off-white head with good retention and lacing. The nose is a nice blend of banana, clove, bread, a little bit of caramel and a nice toasted wheat note. The palate opens with the classic dunkelweisse flavors with banana, clove, toasted dark wheat bread, a light cocoa note. The mid-palate, though, falls off quite a bit. This feels thin, and relatively highly carbonated, lending an acidity that doesn't work with the weizen yeast flavors. Instead of creamy and light, this feels crisp and watery. The finish is particularly seltzer like. Decent.

I have mixed emotions about this beer, but overall I like it.

Poured from a can into a tall tulip glass. Cloudy brown color with a nice fluffy white head and good lacing. Slightly sweet malty honey smell and taste. Hint of root beer. A bit thin.

16oz can into a pint glass. Coding no help in determining freshness.

Looks splendid in the glass. Dark chestnut brown body. Small off white head persists in lesser form throughout leaving spotted lacing.

Nutty, malty aroma. Some banana and a little earthy.

Taste exactly follows the nose. Nothing to add.

Mouth just about reaches medium, finish malty, very faint sweet touch.

Overall, nice beer. Got a 4pack for $9.95, so another win.

Strong toffee, banana, vanilla, plum, roast malt aromas.
Light roast and banana, more prominent clove, stone fruit, pepper flavors.
Medium body, good lasting carbonation, smooth full mouthfeel; sweet caramel lingering aftertaste.
Tasty

Pours a handsome dark amber with lots of fine-grained foam in the Stella Artois goblet. Frothy on the tongue with long-lasting carbonation. Aroma of clove with a little banana and coffee in the nose. Malty but not overly sweet. Actually more sharp than most of these German-stle wheat beers.

Overall this is a flavorful and highly quaffable dark brew with all the right German characteristics. Well balanced with just enough hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. From the 500 ml can purchased on the West Coast.

Poured a hazy medium brown with a one finger frothy white head. Light lacing. Slight banana and cloves nose. Mild flavor of light dark bread with bananas, cinnamon and cloves . . . much like banana bread. There is a bit of dark cocoa on the finish that leaves a slight bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is fine. The beer is crisp, somewhat wet and silky. Overall, this is a very nice DHW that I would buy again.

It looks more like a brown ale, once poured from a pint plus .9 fluid ounce can into a clear Imperial pint glass. Actually, the color is more like a cloudy dark copper with a stark white head, typical of a wheat beer. The aroma is perfume-llke, rather than malty usually associated with this color. That's all the nose gets. Not much is expected from the taste and that holds. The best that can be said is that this doesn't bring the annoying metallic character to the taste as many in this style. It also has a reasonable hop inclusion, rare for many wheat beers. The body is light and one dimensional, fitting the style. For a wheat beer, this isn't bad.

Poured from a 16.9 oz. can. Has a dark chestnut color with a 1 inch head. Smell is just bursting with bananas. Taste is bananas, dark bread, hints of bubble gum, highly refreshing. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer.

Can code but no date
Big frothy 2 finger off white head with good retention, soapy lacing, clear auburn to slight brownish color

Taste brings a little creamy malt, toasted biscuity with a hint of chocolate, toasted bread crust, hint of fruit, little toasted cereal grain, light bitterness, soft

Mouth is med to lighter bod, med frothy carb

Overall not bad, a bit light overall especially on the fruity esters, but good nonetheless

16oz can

Smooth and sweet banana and clove, light touches of cocoa and hops. I agree with another reviewer that the overall flavor is banana bread. If I dig there's a lot of tobacco flavors here. The flavor is slightly muted compared to other hefe's and dunkels, but clean and dry. Pour it out and let it breathe, trust me, it makes the beer at least twice as good. @ me if you disagree, I'm confident you won't

A very clean drinking hefe, good entry-level bier into these flavors

Poured from can to weizen glass. Pours a rich, cloudy amber-brown with a light brown head that falls but never disappears. Some lacing left behind as you drink. Smell is clove, banana, a bit of bubblegum...everything you'd expect. Taste follows nose with all those flavors working. Taste resembles banana bread in the end. A bit more depth than the lighter counterpart of the style. Feel is medium bodied, good carbonation, easy to drink. Overall, this is a solid beer. Tastes great, refreshing, and a bit more depth.

500ml can $9/4 pack

Been too long since I had a top-notch dunkelweizen. Thankfully, this is one. Soft flavors of banana, wheat, cocoa, and clove all coexisting in perfectly refreshing harmony. The mouthfeel is full and lush.

Clear, garnet-hued, with caramel-y, chestnut trim, hefty layer of cocoa-tinged foam above.

In the nose: sweet and malty from the start, more cocoa and caramel mingling with the wheat flavors. Banana and clove bubble below.

In the mouth: More sweet and loveliness, coupled with the silky and the smooth. Those flavors from the aroma land on the palate, more cocoa, caramel, banana and clove. Classic Bavarian Hefe Weizen with the dark malt twist.

I love a good Dunkel Weisse and this most assuredly is one.

A: Pours a clear, dark copper or mahogany color with a two finger, foamy, wheat colored head, leaving rim retention and spidery lacing.

T: Semisweet. Flavors rather follow the nose with emphasis on the banana and cloves. Very balanced bitterness.
M: Light bodied with moderation carbonation. Easy drinking and smooth.
O: First beer from Brauerei Tucher Brau. Not particularly cloudy despite naturtrüb designation. Very, very easy drinking. Really enjoyed this beer.

There is no date on the bottle. The pour is brown. The taste is bread crust, stale banana bread, & yeast. The body is thick & filling. This style is okay but I prefer the regular hefeweizen over this. Cheers! B
