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.

Purchased at ABC in Central FL in a pint bottle. Pours a hazy, tea color with a creamy light tan head. Smells sweetly of wheat, banana bread, and yeast. Taste is very mild - raisins, very slight sourness, a little dry, and the carbonation is delicate. The beer is very smooth and easy to drink. Reminds me of a hefeweizen, but with more developed and rich flavor. Very balanced and fantastic overall. I haven't had a beer like this in some time. I think it might be the best I've had in a while. It was gone way too quickly.

A beautiful amber color with beige head that is luscious and beautiful, with very fine bubbles.
Smell is sort of a nice light caramel mixed with a bit of wheat and banana.
Taste is caramel mostly with a hint of banana, not as sweet as I was expecting, which is a good thing I think
Mouth feel is very velvety and medium full in body. Alcohol is almost not detectable
Overall a fantastic brew from one of my favorite breweries, and this certainly was a treat to try.
Would I buy again? I would if I could get it in a 6 pack. Only on special occasions for this one.

Look: medium brown with a tall, but short lived, head.
Smell: a bit subdued compared to their (amazing) hefeweissbier.
Taste: The traditional hefeweizen flavors are there, but seem to be masked by the malt, making it a little biscuity. It’s still nice, but it seems to be neither one thing or the other.
Feel: Light and effervescent.
Overall: It’s nice, but I’m coming to the conclusion that dunkelweizens aren’t quite my thing.

Dark and rich, complex and earthy. Oaky, bready with texture and beautiful complexity. Aromas and tastes of banana bread, slight cloves and pecan with a crisp finish then rich aftertaste. Dark mahogany and rich, luxurious mouth feel. Gorgeous.

My personal favorite from Weihenstephaner and my favorite dunkel overall. Sometimes it’s a little different to locate locally but it’s a solid choice that I buy whenever I see it. If you like dunkles, try it you’ll love it.
