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.

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.

Dark amber to mahogany slightly hazy pour with thick cream coloured head. Aroma is sweet grassy caramel malt, banana, clove. Taste follows the nose - bready caramel, banana, bit of orange and clove. Medium mouthfeel with creaminess verging on pleasantly foamy on the palate. Smooth and nicely carbonated - really good!

To be fair this beer was preceded by two superior dark biers. Not a bad heffy but not a real dunkel. The scent lacks the clarity of great hefeweissbiers and it does not shine in the dunkel spectrum.

Taste: Smooth, nutty, dark bread, chocolate malty, slight sweet. Roasted malt, bready nose. Dark to med brown hue, semi opaque, rich tan creamy head. Medium to full body. Just like I remember having it over the last 10 years from time to time.

Poured into weizen glass. Big old beige head, amber brown body.

Nose of oat and light banana, peaches. Taste is a dark and bready, with a creaminess. Smooth

Mouth is medium dry, nice and smooth overall.

Definitely worth the rep. A good, hearty dark wheat beer. Good with food, and cooler weather.
