Murky light brown color with a nice big beige head. Nice balanced chocolate malt aroma and banana-clove aroma. Tastes much like it smells with both characteristics blending nicely. Medium bodied, smooth, and creamy.

A solid Dunkle Weizen - A definite buy and bargain price compared to Weihenstephen !!

Per label: Since 1672

($1.99 / 16 oz.)

This is a phenomenal beer, the top of the style.

G - Weizen

A – Cloudy Lipton tea, nice solid foamy head, great retention.

S – Bread, banana, funk, hay, apples.

T – Same as above but way fruity, with a tiny sour tinge and a great delectable finish. The Germans have amazing malt.

M – Smooth, lighter bodied, and semi-low carbonation.

D – Excellent, so enjoyable and richly flavorful. Also very complementary to certain foods

Beer poured a clear medium to dark copper for the first half of the bottle (since I couldn't get the whole bottle in the glass).

Smell was pleasently yeasty, reminiscent of freshly baked bread.

Taste was smooth and delicious with notes of banana and bread. Warm and inviting, with a bit of a bite in the finsh.

When I poured the second half of the bottle is when the beer really started to shine. As is my custom with wheat beers, I swirled that last half ounce slightly to pick up some of the sediment.
That's when this beer really started to shine. The bite faded out and the flavors seemed to intensify.

Just excellent.

Wow, I really liked this beer. Can't ad much to what Jason said on his review. It poured a clear rusty brown. Smal frothy head that lasted throughtout. Nice lacing too. The smell was pegged as ripe banana with a sweet bread and spicey note. The taste was delicatable. Caramel, apple, banana, malty, bready, you name it. I think I like this one better than the Weihenstephaner. Great mouthfeel, smooth, and chunky at the same time. I wish I had more of these. Alas, it's back to the beer store.

If you like Hefe at all, I strongly advise you try this. It pours a reddish brown, almost like tea, with a slightly carmel toned off-white head. It has the spiciness generally associated with hefeweizen, but keyed up just a wee bit more than say, Franziskaner or Weihenstephaner. This also seemed to leave a very, very faint trace of a cream like aftertaste in my mouth. Perhaps it was just me. Nevertheless, I thought this was a fantastic Hefeweizen and will most certainly buy it again.

Tucher- Dunkeles HefeWeizen

$2.30 for a 1pint1ounce bottle.

Appearance- Light brownish orange with a huge creamy head. Very hazy and full of floaters.
Smell- Strong banana/ clove with a nice strong malt flavor. bread/ biscuit flavor noted.
Taste- immediate malt with an even balace of malt. Light sugary taste.
Mouthfeel- Big and malty up front, light sugary sweetness. low carbonation and a even flavor throughout.

Overall- A delicious beer!!! Dunkels are so much better than regular Hefe's and this is my new favorite Dunkel!!!

Appearance: I just finished the Schneider Weiss and cracked open one of these Tucher Dunkel Hefe Weizens and am having a hard time telling the difference between the two in color and pour. The head was a little better with the Tucher.
Smell: When smelling it, I get a sense of chocolate, a little coffee, caramel, with a hint of fruit. Interesting smell, inviting.
Taste: As with all good biers, the smell gives you a good indication of the taste and this is a good bier. Crisp taste, not bitter at all, no smokiness, a good hefe taste.
Mouthfeel: Robust feel, easy to drink and very enjoyable.
Drinkability: The dunkel hefe weizens are a more robust, full version of the helles hefe weizens and very enjoyable. This bier is best in the fall and winter months where the heaviness and more full taste works vs the helles. Any considering it is 27 degrees here in Chicago, I think I will have another. I haven't had this bier much, but will more often now, a well rounded bier that is very enjoyable to drink.

Served from 2 yr old bottle into hefe glass. I was anticipating some clumping of yeast due to being in cellar, but was fine. Pours a nice reddish brown with plenty carbonation and nice creamy head. Smell of fruitiness with banana. Tastes much like smell with some malt insets and other fruit. Fruitiness with malty biscuit following and a slight happiness bite on back end. Comes together very well with smooth feel. A very good dunkle hefe. A favorite for sure.

This one's a pretty nice solid brew. Appearance perhaps isn't anything to write home about perhaps, the head being a tad overfizzy, and dissapearing quickly. The smell's nice, sharp and clean, like a good Weizen, but with a significant malty backing. The taste is exactly where it should be, without any bonus frills, malty, and with a decent weight to it. A very drinkable beer.
