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.

Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Cloudy amber-orange pour with a beautiful four finger off-white head with great retention and lacing. The nose is big and earthy with lots of banana and brown bread along with hints of clove, toffee, caramel, and brown sugar. The taste mirrors the nose with huge notes of brown bread, banana, and clove along with hints of caramel, nuts, apple skin, pear, and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is smooth and subtly creamy with perfect carbonation and a great balanced finish. Overall, I've never been much of a fan of wheat beers, which sucks having lived in Germany so long. But I've recently had some great experiences with them and have decided to re-explore the style. This is an amazingly flavorful beer that's hugely drinkable extremely well balanced. It will definitely be restocked in the beer fridge.
