Poured pint bottle into weizen glass. Light khaki head, goes down to cola fizz. Deep dark chocolate brown.

Nose is raisins and dark oats. Taste follows with a creamy sweetness, and a sort of smoky rye flavor.

Medium dry finish.

This is a great beer. One of the best dark wheat beers on the sweeter, smoother side.

Got this one at the Mitra in Maarssen

From a 50cl swing top bottle into a weissen glass

APPEARANCE: Pours a 2+ finger, medium looking, creamy off-white head with good retention. Opaque bistre brown with no carbonation evident. Head fades to a nice, creamy cap. A half wisp remains leaving touches of lacing down the glass as it empties.

SMELL: Bolder nose of wheat malt, clove, bubble gum and light citrus aromas. Hints of bread as well. A light touch of roasted aromas and toffee from the darker malts. Very nice.

TASTE: Wheat, clove and bready flavors with some sweet toffee up front. A bit of bubble gum and some roasted character at the swallow as well. Bold finish of wheat malt, bready flavors, sweet toffee, clove spices, bubble gum and a touch of roasted malts linger on the palate. Great.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes a touch dry. Same as the regular weisen.

OVERALL: Really good. Love this version of a dunkelweiss. Reminds me quite a bit of the Erdinger dunkelweiss which I love so much. Great stuff and I enjoyed this one more than their normal helles weizen. Cheers!

Pours a dark brown color with a thick full tan head. Head dissipates steadily leaving a thin ring of tan foam along the outside of the beer.

Smell has notes of dark fruit, toffee, spices and cloves, and dark plums. This must be rather old as the wheat has all fallen off.

Taste has notes of dark fruit and plums. Surprisingly watery and bland. Some mild nutty flavors on the back end.

Feel is thin and watery. Mild carbonation.

Overall this is alright - its probably better if you can have it fresher, but the watery bland flavor and feel isn't an age issue.

16.9 oz. bottle poured into wheat-beer glass

L: red-brown ... ruby red-brown, not quite purple ... too much brown for that; clear enough for light to pass through visibly; pushes up a 2-inch head of tan foam is sticky at the top, and it's keeping a thick collar and skin; slight lacing but the pour is the highlight; beautiful beer

S: sweet dark dried fruits, prunes, dates; dusty plums ... very sweet, almost a caramel-maple syrup pancake or french toast with powdered sugar on top; buttery, lightly so, but like a buttery-chocolate donut; slight sour grain; chocolate

T: follows the nose but a bit watered down; dusty dark dried fruits, dates ... the dusty flavor turns into a nice oak-wood finish, a little smokey but just a little; raisins; the dusty/smokey/wood aftertaste is consistent

F: very light, crisp at first but softening into hefeweizen range quickly ... perhaps a tad soft and watery, but it's still enjoyably drinkable

O: fantastic beer; the nose is particularly special, and the oak-wood finish highlights a good range of darker-malt flavors; a beer I will buy again and again

Best before: April 3, 2016

L- Very dark brown, one can barely see through it. Tan foamy head with medium retention. Leaves a thin layer of foam.
S- Very weak. Malt grains, oat cookies, wheat.
T- Also fairly weak. Wheat, some spices, raisins and a very faint coffee note.
F- Carbonated, rich, full, silky.
O- Smell and taste are too weak for this to be really good. Just decent.

L: black like porter, but you can see through a bit, tanned foamy head.
S: roasted malt, banana/cloves
T: roasted malt, some metallic flavor, some sour notes (from roasted grain?), faint banana and cloves in the background, wheaty silky malt finish
F: medium body
O: looks wise it has some impact (never seen this dark dunkel or what they call "schwartz" weizen).

Had to really mess with this one for a few seconds to get the bottle open with its three-part hinge clasp!

A : Coffee brown-black with cranberry hues when held up to the light. 90% opaque. The head is beige, 3 fingers, and porous. Sticky lacing adheres to the sides of the pint glass.

S : Fresh whole wheat bread out of the bag, with the sweetness of the crust and perhaps even oats. Deeper whiffs yield horehound and anise, with a light beery aroma. The volume isn't very loud so deep nosing is required.

T : Much like the nose. Although somewhat weak in the flavor. Dark bread crusts, sharp and snappy black licorice, a mildly sour tang of yeast underneath, and finishes with "what's like" a singed hop leaf with a torch. Some mild coffee also can be tasted.

F : The mouthfeel is largely creamy, dense, and sticky. Ends linear.

O : A nice bready, oaty, dark-crusted beer with some notes of anise and light roast coffee. I think I'd rate it higher if what was present here was just a little stronger. However...I'd buy this again. I'm not sure how much I paid for it, I don't think it was much, maybe $6.99? Yeah I'd get it again. This was sweet. Not the best Dunkel but still not half bad.

Pretty bad beer, I think I might got a bad batch because it has good ratings. Very acid in the taste and a bit astringent in the after taste. Smells and looks right for the style.

Poured from a 500 mL swing-top bottle into a weizen glass. Stamped 2320174.

A: Deep brown body that take on an opaque black appearance in the glass. 2 fingers of slightly rocky, off-white head. Good retention. Light lacing.

S: Nutty, chocolate notes with underlying banana, raisin, plum. Light coffee. A bit of port, a touch of smoke.

T: Lightly tangy, roasted malt notes open, intermingled with sweeter, fruitier wheat notes. A tempered, noble-type hopping arises late for a semi-dry finish. Minimal alcohol presence. Lingering wheat-fueled fruit and spice in the aftertaste. This one starts a schwarzbier and ends a hefe.

M: Moderate carbonation with a light to medium body. Feels like a hefeweizen.

O: Struck me as an above average hefeweizen with some flourishes of schwarzbier-like malt that are more present in the nose than on the palate. A bit different from other dunkelweizen that I've had. More of a nutty, tangy roasted malt than the typical dried fruit, raisin. Easy drinker. Good stuff.

Prost!
