look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

75cl brown glass bottle with classic pressure cap served into a Westvleteren goblet in Belfort, France. Bottle acquired in Rome, Italy, last week. Best before date is 26/10/2011. My bottle shows the ABV as 6%. Reviewed live.

A: One finger head of nice cream lacing, great thickness, and good retention for the serving vessel and relatively above-average ABV. Colour is a caramel brown. It's appealing.

Sm: Very nutty, with wheat and very light chocolate hints. A mild strength aroma.

T: Lots of nut layers, with a dirty wheat foundation and some chocolate hints. The nut layering is well done, but lacks complexity or inspiration. Simple. Balanced, but badly built.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with some very nice cream undertones. Probably the best part of this beer.

Dr: It's overall a rather simple beer for the style, and pales in comparison to its German counterparts. It drinks easy but costs entirely too much (especially in Rome). I wouldn't jump any hoops to get it.

Dark brown color, fluffy white head, long standing.
In the smell caramel and malt, but also some hop and hint of plum marmelade.
The taste is that of a dunkel weizen, dark malt, banana and cloves, well amalgamated.
Strong malt and caramel, yes, but overall balanced.
Full body, caramel, a bit of hop in the aftertaste.
Warming, some fruity notes pop up, of apricot in syrup.

On tap at Alla Spina.

Served in a teku, a murky brown color with a lively puff of off-white head that bubbled up over the lip of the glass; good retention and lacing. In the nose, toasty malts, spice, roasty nuttiness. In the taste, nutty malts, brown sugar, notes of cinnamon and clove, earthy raw cocoa, yeast leaning towards dried banana. Good mouthfeel, medium body, overall good for the style.

Pour is a dark brown with orangish edges and tight tan head. The nose is very nice, strong yeast and fruit sweetness. Peppery spice and twang up front, light dustiness transitions to banana and berries as a fruit balance is struck. The taste is a hint short, yeast is more subtle and the spice is much less, fruits are less bright and more sugary with a dustier earthy presence mid palate. Body is light and soft with a low carbonation and clean finish.

appearance: very nicely dark for a Italian brew not bad

smell: Nice sweet tang to it. A real pleasure actually.

taste: Nice edge can't say its bad but a bit too much hoppy bight for the type

mouthfeel: Bit weak a bit disappointing cause the flavor isn't that bad

overall: If you have to drink a beer in Italy drink this one

Poured a murky, mahogany colour. Smelled sour and malty, with hints of vanilla. Tasted crisper than expected, a little malty, mellow tartness, and a warm-ish grain-malt finish; Hops throughout, but not detected flavourwise, but the hops gave it a dryer mouthfeel.

On tap at Coasters, thanks for getting this one.
Pours a hazy brown with very little head that leaves no lacing.

Nose is sweet bready malts, yeasty with some fruit.

Taste is caramelized bananas, bread with a peppery finish

Very little carbonation, mouthfeel is light

An easy drinking, tasty dunkelweizen, worth trying.

I picked up a bottle of this beer during a visit to the brewpub. The bottle itself is a stubby 75 cl, with an oversized cap. The beer is a muddy brown color with a beautiful tan head. The aroma is a great mix of malt, yeast, banana, and ripe fruit. Very nice. The taste is sweet and powerful, but not overdone. It's textured, with a lot of dark berry and plum notes, mingled with wheat, sweet malt, and caramel. Very drinkable and quite interesting. Here's a wonderful Italian craft beer.

Poured a brown body with minimal head and lace. The aroma strikes me as sweet with some wheat and bananas and then there's bit of spice like clove and herbal tea. The beer is light but has a fullness to it thanks to a wheat/yeast aspect (which also gives off some sweetness), there is a banana-like sweetness that balances with an herbal dryness and spiciness. Beer is balanced and while not complex is an enjoyable drink that is definite sipper for sure.

A: Dark, hazy brown , a lot of lightly tanned and creamy head, good head retention, little lacing;

S: Very fresh, yeasty, fruit and a tiny bit of toasted malts, especially chocolate-like aromas, the fruitiness mainly consists of banana, hints of caramel;

T: Hits the palate with a sweet and slightly sour flavour while having this tiny bit of chocolate in it, hops are really just a tiny tiny bit in the backround on the finish, little bit of caramel, rather on the malty side yet not overly sweet, pretty good balance between all the components although slightly stronger fruit and/or chocolate would be interesting. The aftertaste is fruity and chocolatey;

M: Very thick and creamy, high carbonation;

O: Really good brew, balanced flavour profile although some flavours could be stronger!

part of me just stands in awe at italian beer in general right now, but who would think they would take a german, yes german classic to the next level, at least the same level, by making it as good if not better than many traditional ones, without really changing a thing. cool and special beer, but also one of those styles you love, but never really expect to be wowed by. this looks every bit the part, smells like it should, and tastes like something andeschs or weihenstephaner would make. truly, no lie. its almost more wheaty, less caramelized, maybe a short boil and a higher to complete wheat bill, textured beautifully and with a yeast strain the tips its cap to the germans but has an italian delicacy and earthiness the germans have not yet showed me. nearly impossible to describe this compared to the best german examples without tasting it, all of the same things, just stacked up slightly differently. really really enjoyed this glass of beer, and look forward to my next, i would take this over that insane black currant beer these guys did awhile back, my only other reference point for this brewery.
