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.

Light brown color. Cloudy. Small head with light streaking on the glass.

Banana and darker (toasty) malt aromas.

There's a light roasted malt flavor combined with banana. Thinner body than the helles version along with a higher carbonation.

This wasn't my favorite dunkel wheat beer. It wasn't bad by any means; it just didn't hit the spot for me. I really wanted to like it more. The initial smell and taste of it was good, but the aftertaste wasn't so great. It went from sweet and full to bitter and really left me wanting to get something else to drink. Because of my initial response to it I ranked it a little higher than I would have if only going off the finish.

Poured from a 16.9 ounce bottle purchased at Wegman's in PA. Aroma and taste is mainly caramel with hints of banana and nutty finish. A good dunkelweizen, but is rather watery for the style. I really expected better from this brewery with a label "SEIT 1050". Who knows when it was actually bottled; it did taste a little old (bottle code 126E1430).

Pours a cloudy brown with coppery highlights and a light, long-lasting, off-white head. First off in the aroma is sharp, metallic prune, along with some clove and a mild undertone of wheat and bread. The flavor is surprisingly tart, accompanied by some clove-like spice. It's pretty sour on the back end. Malty flavors seem secondary, but the malty aftertaste is welcome. The carbonation is almost creamy, and the feel is rather sharp and dry.

There is an abundance of tartness overall, with just enough clove-like spice to keep it interesting. The maltiness is disappointingly in the background. The sharp and tart qualities mellow a bit over time as the overall impression becomes spicy and dry, with the tart flavors lingering on the tongue rather than assaulting it up front.

This pours a dark, murky brown color with a thick, foamy head. The aroma is full of banana and yeast. The taste is sweet, bready with a lingering tasting of some bread and spices. Smooth and easy drinking with a malty finish.
