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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

1 pint, 0.9oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours a rich brown with ruby undertones with a tall cream colored head that has good retention and some lacing.

Smell is of sweet roasted malt, picking up some fruit like banana from the yeast, as well as clove and faint hops.

Taste is similar to the smell, sweet malt up front, with banana and clove in the finish with slight spiciness present throughout. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated and soft, some creaminess as well.

Overall, one of the best Dunkels out there and is always good to have some on hand.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: 4.25 Pours a hazy, reddish-brown with a large off-white head.

S: 3.75 The aroma is mostly bread, esters, yeast, and malt with some light hops in the background. There’s a little bit caramel with the malt, but it’s very faint.

T: 4 Slightly sweet at first with a good amount of fruity, spicy esters following. The malt and hop levels are very nice, but not adding anything particularly interesting. This dark version is actually quite similar to the original.

M: 4.25 The body is pretty light and quite refreshing for a “dark” beer. Carbonation is very nice and enhances the fairly muted flavors.

O: 4 This beer is very nice, however it is not particularly interesting. As mentioned above, it’s very similar to the original version but there’s a little less going on. I was hoping for a bit more roasted malt to come through on the nose and palate, but it’s still very good and easy to drink.
