3.5/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: 0,5l brown glass bottle sealed with a white and blue logo’d crown cap. Typical triplicate label set-up so common amongst the Teutonic brews. The main label has blue & white checks across the top and down the sides of a metallic background with a picture of a Beer Serving Fraulein on the front holding high a platter of brews. The wording describes the brew as “Will-Bräu Original Bayerische Ur Weisse Dunkles Weissbier”. The reverse label lists the strength at 5.3%. It has the numbers across the bottom label but none are ‘tagged’ so who knows how fresh this one is.

Appearance: Tidy looking start, light tan colored foamy cap fills the upper 3” of my straight sided Urquell glass. Tightly rescinding carbonation on the tilt helps to reveal the lovely clear chestnut body.

Nose: Mild toffee laden cloves with some caramel fruits. Wholemeal sliced bread has a little yeast to it.

Taste: Malty base with some wheat background and flashes of caramel, toffee and chocolate sponge cake. Dark orange wisps and some powdered cocoa shower the back end like talc. Finishes with a little bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Decent levels of carbonation and the chewy toffee feel lend a lovely feel on the palate. Easy going but a tad diluted overall to keep my attention.

Drinkability: Not bad at all, yet overall it feels a little light on the strength of flavors and the watery Mouthfeel detract from what could be a great Dunkles Weissbier, oh but if this was a few degrees higher in strength, sadly it isn’t, and I think it dips a little because of that.

Overall: A reasonably tasty Dunkles Weissbier that strikes an above average pose with some confidence. But overall it is a little wishy-washy.

Dark amber color. Medium head. Aroma is malty and bready. Nice roasted malts, bananas and cloves. Hops are slightly spicy. Well balanced. Slightly sweet and a touch bready. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
