Poured into a weizen glass from a bottle I picked up in Nuremburg area. Fait head faded fast, minimal lacing on glass. Note glass was rinsed from previous serving. Dark and hazy, smooth, mellow taste, without the bitterness you find in some dark beers. This is one of the best dunkel weizens i've tasted. I have a whole rack of twenty different dunkels arriving on Thursday. let's see if this one can stay on top of the heap. worth trying if you can find it!

Another in from a brewery that's been rock solid with German style beers. Here's hoping that the streak is golden.

.5 litre brown bottle, no clear dating -- just like all of the others in the line. $3.50

A -- Hazy, copper-amber color with the same dense, long-lasting, head as the Hellesweizen, but maybe a little deeper in cream color.

S -- Bready malts up front with some vague vanilla-cream, even cocoa, and light phenols.

T -- That same vanilla-cream and cocoa character up front, some mild phenols and citrus character in the middle, and toasty malts in the finish with some lingering citrus and even some (very) light hop bitterness.

M -- Mouthfeel is a soft creaminess with a light-medium body.

O -- Just about the best Dunkelweizen I've had since I was last in Germany. Very rich in character and flavorful, a solid example for anyone wanting to experience the style.

Serving type - Bottle

Appearance - pours a deep amber, with a nice, thick, lasting tan head. Abundant lacing.

Smell - Nice banana and clove notes, as expected

Taste - Starts off with a nice malty delivery of banana and clove, and finishes dry with a bubblegum-ish aftertaste. Flavor is right on here.

Mouthfeel - Nice and creamy, yet at the same time, a bit thinner than I was expecting.

Drinkability - Super smooth and drinkable, this one is perfect to session with.

Overall - A very solid Dunkelweizen, but I'd still say I prefer Franziskaner. Would glady drink this again though.

Bottle picked from Bobby's fridge.

A: The pour is a dark amber color with a very large off-white head.

S: Smells like toffee and caramel with a touch of roasted malts. A nice toastiness and quite a bit of banana. Some mild cola along with a nice clove note.

T: Quite an emphasis on the dark malts here with a strong roast and toast flavor. Lots of toffee and bread along with moderate banana and clove flavors. I get a little bit of dark fruit notes, too.

M: The body is medium with a moderate to high level of carbonation.

D: A really solid Dunkelweizen and exceedingly easy to drink. Wouldn't hesitate to pick one of these up.

Pours hazy amber. Nice creamy head. Smells of clove/bannana/malt. Taste of clove, bannanas and dark fruit. Finishes with a smooth, shot of alcohol. Ratings on another site are really under rated. This dunkel is a a very good one. Tough to find a crappy beer from these guys!

It pours dark copper-brown with a nice pillow-y head that eventually reduces to a shallow film of foam. The aroma is fruity with notes of black licorice. The taste is pretty mild and predominantly sweet with lots of caramel, toffee and molasses. Not much bitterness. Very light bodied.
