40 cL at the original (only?) location in Heidelberg.

Cloudy brown, looks like muddy water. Great head but light on lace. Aroma of cloves, earth, and sassafras. Soft on the front with more carbonation on the finish. Flavor starts out malty with same clove and, to a lesser extent, root beer, characteristics but fades in the finish. Some acidity and bitterness on the back of the tounge. Medium-heavy body.

Decent darkish hefeweizen tasted at the brewpub in Heidelberg.

Cloudy in the glass with a nice creamy head. Color is a brownish amber, a lighter shade than is typical for dunkels. Some clove and fig flavors, bread, and green apples. Typical murky wheat flavors and quite malty. Nicely carbonated on the tongue. A bit hoppier than other German wheat beers. Tastes a bit sour at first but mellows eventually.

Not a standout, but a perkier than average dunkel that whets the appetite.

A promising weizen dunkel. Dunkel is dunkel. Two fingers of a beige foam.
In the smell a light banana, a hint of cloves, malt, yeast. Quite full.
A good fullness in the taste too, well balanced. A good beer, with all the notes of a good dunkel weizen, but without anything too strong. Pleasant.
Not too strong aftertaste, wih caramel, similar to the taste.
Normal body.
