look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Hazy copper amber color with a huge thick head with great retention and leaving a wall of laces.
Aroma of banana, cloves, caramels, wheat and slightly toasted malts.
Flavor of fresh oranges, spices, wood, banana coming in a delay, yeast and pears.
Medium body with good carbonation and a bit acid.
A very pleasant light weight Dunkelweizen, refreshing and light on spices, but still quite malty.

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.

This beer pours a nice medium brown with a great wheat beer head that lasts and leaves a nice lacing . It really has a wonderful hazy brown color that is hard to describe.
It smell of nuts and fruits and great fresh wheat fields. Its taste is just as wonderful with even more malt along with the wheat and nutty fruits. It goes down smooth and leaves you wanting another every time. If you want a dark wheat this is one of the best.

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...

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!

The beer is clouded brown, has a white head that leaves some lacing.

The smell is fruity, banana and orange, slightly spicy.

The taste is rather malt dominated, brown bread, some ripe oranges and pears.

Medium carbonation, a soft texture and a good body.

A good allround hefe.

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.
