2.1/5  rDev -42.5%
look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Sidepoured into a Schöfferhofer Weizenbier Dunkel glass from a bottle at SXF airport, Berlin.

A: Three finger head of nice cream and decent thickness. Very hazy caramel-brown colour.

Sm: Wheat, cream, hops. Moderate strength scent. Kind of disturbs the nose, almost to point of sneezing.

T: Wheat body, then an absence of flavour before the blond barley finish comes in. Poorly balanced. A very poor approach to a dunkelweizen. I'm learning to despise this style as a bastardization of the dunkel style.

Mf: Coarse, more dry than a dunkel ought to be. Stalls on the tongue, forcing you to endure its foul flavour.

Dr: Horribly priced, though in fairness I purchased it at an airport. But sweet bejaysus, lads, leave this one where it belongs - on the shelf.

Looked nice, good head and retention, smelled nice, nice classic banana, roast and clove.
But the taste was a big let down. It was really watery, so the wheatiness was weak, and there was just a flash of roasted malts, with dark cocoa powder and coffee notes, going away fast. The fruitiness is weak, faint banana, but a (very) lot of lemon zest. Traditional spiciness also low. Hops provide an average bitterness along with the roast, but that's it.
A pretty mediocre dunkelweizen, one that I won't be having again. Their hefeweizen is better though.

Best thing about this beer is its appearance. Poured with a huge, foamy, frothy, thick, fluffy, cream colored head that lasts a long time and good lace. Color at first is a copper amber. Aroma is very mild with malt, a bit roasty, and yeast. Not much else. Flavor is like aroma and I wonder why they even bothered. Body and carbonatoin are ok. Finish is like flavor and short. Forgettable.

500ml brown bottle purchased in Berlin, drank in the UK.

Poured into one of my Franziskaner Weissbier glasses, it looked moody, cloudy and merky, with an off white thick head, just like a dark wheat beer should look like.

If you can get past the bannana aroma which is almost overpowering at first, you get vanilla and othet fruits coming through, in my opinion this beers best asset.

Standard Dunkel Weizen taste of wheat and bannana/vanilla flavours.

No mouthfeel to write about, not watery, not thick, just a normal type of consistancy for me.

A bog standard Dunkel Weizen.

Was expecting just a little bit better. Looked beautiful on pour, with thick, creamy head. Taste was a little bitter, and turned sour as it warmed. I thought this was going to be a good one...

Slightly cloudy copper color. Thin head. Not much aroma. Thin taste with slight flavors of spice and banana. What's left is mild bitterness. I wouldn't drink this as a normal brew. There are better brews if you like this type of brew. It's not bad, just not good.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: cloudy with a coppery brown colour. The head is off-white, almost tan, big and dense but does not last very long.
Aroma: clovy and fruity.
Taste: confirms the smell. Some malty sweetness as well.
Mouthfeel: smooth, fair carbonation, average alcoholic strength (5% ABV) and a very light body.
Finish: lacks bitterness.

Overall: I was expecting a little more body. Refreshing without the depth of a good dunkel weizen.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pour is murky brown with a really large off-white creamy head that slowly sinks into nice lacings.

S: Ripe sweet bananas, from the wheat. Citric fruits. A bit smoked ham. Spices.

T: Kind of weak taste; ripe sweet bananas and oranges. Dark bread and again; the smoked ham.

M: Aftertaste is short and kind of rough, bitter. Body is light and carbonation medium.

O: Not bad, but farm from the best!

From notes.

Pours a cloudy dark walnut brown, with a frothy two finger head that settles slowly to a thick cap. Even with so much foam, the lacing is almost nonexistent.

Smell; very strong clove aroma in this one, with hints of banana, and a little bubblegum. A sweet malty backbone round outs out the aroma a little.

Taste; as with the aroma, this has a very strong clove flavor with some grassy notes as well. The banana is there, it's just a little overwhelmed by the cloves, but the caramel malts do come out a bit as this gets a little warmer.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a fairly soft carbonation, but this isn't the easiest for me to drink with such an overwhelming presence of cloves.

Quite nice, very quaffable. Sweetish, banana and chocolate flavour. Very, very smooth, and even a bit light. Still, theres enough, German wheat character (banana, clove) and dark malt character (choc/caramel) to keep you interested. Not the best dunkle weiss, but very solid by anyones standard. Not a bad drop.
