Style: Dunkelweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

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.

A-Pours an unusual yellowy, light amber color. Body is lightly milky. Big, cake batter head. Head never dies away. Keeps its girth but doesn't lace too much; its being quite stingy.

S-Estery and spicy with a hint of mustiness and some clear banana fruitiness. Cloves and light cocoa powder.

T-Banana bread with light chocolate undertones. Maybe chocolate chip banana bread muffins? Cloves and well cooked toast. Slightly tart. Tons of different flavors. There is an earthy, nuttiness to it and also a milk chocolate note (Nutella?).

M-Drinks easy but it has that pillowy mouthfeel that a great Dunkel should possess. Creamy yet light.

O/D-This brought a lot to the table. Its cheap, its complex, its easy drinking and its mysterious. I can see why anything with the Weihenstephaner label is regarded as beer royalty.
