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.

Pours a cloudy amber with massive (!) head of off-white carbonation. Big, loopy lace.

Nose is nicely banana and clove-spice. Absolutely perfect and in line with a great hefeweizen. Very nice, yes.

Taste is sweet and spicy, with plenty of banana and clove notes. The finish shows a bit of honey and tart citrus, as well. Perfectly balanced and so drinkable, I could have these daily.

Refreshing, complex, and positively an ideal hefeweizen.
