Brewed by:
Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan

Style: Dunkelweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Nice hazy copper color with a fluffy white head. Not much lacing, but not much expected from style.

Aroma is amazing. Good blend of maltiness with a hint of spice. I've heard green apple and pie spice and those are perfect descriptions.

Flavor is great as well. Good malts with the spice punching through nicely among a good level of carbonation.

A truly delicious wheat beer and another solid offering from Weihenstephaner.

This poured a murky yellow brown, cloudy from the yeast, creating a frothy head.

The scent is malty but not aggressive.

The taste is malty and bready with a light mouthfeel, verging on watery.

This would be enjoyable on a bright day at a beer garden.
