Notes / Commercial Description:
Our dark wheat beer is impressive with its creamy white foam. A fruity-fresh sweetness and hints of mature bananas harmonise with delicious flavours of roasted malt, sparkling and full-bodied with a light caramel taste on the first sip. An excellent accompaniment from hearty meals and game to chocolate and nut desserts. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

The beer fills your glass with an aggressive climbing soft white head.

I find the aroma is modest. You may pick up mild wheat bread and clove. The taste further accentuates a malty character with cloves at the end. A hint of raisin and caramel are also relatively easy to find.

The mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, and low carbonation.

Personally, I found it a little less spicy and fruity than I had hoped for. It certainly is friendly to drink and welcome for a damp, fall day.

Amazing Dunkel! Pours light amber color. Tasting malted caramel. Almost like caramelized sugar. Excellent. Smooth. Mildly carbonated. Glorious wheat. So deliciously drinkable.

Outstanding Dark Wheat beer. Probably the best dark wheat available.
