a: slightly hazy dark mahogany and cherry. a touch of dark ruby red and light purple. 3 finger solid tan head

s: wheat, sweet caramel, and a touch of chocolate. dark plums, figs, and raisins behind that. big bready note, and candied strawberries. a touch of lemongrass and sticky toffee at the end

t: not quite as vibrant as the nose. toffee, sticky dough, figs, raisins, and a substantial hit of wheat. fig and plum behind that with a faint hint of chocolate. nice grassy presence and a very faint herbal bitterness. finish is sweet

m: lighter side of medium with high carbonatoin

o: a pretty fair example of the style. i've had some that were more rich in flavor, and featured a little more wheat than this one. easy to drink, and nothing off in here though.

Big head on the beer but I poured it wrong also. Smells a bit strong. Nothing floating around in it so that's a good sign. Tastes like rusty water to me. I'm not too fond of that stuff, a little strong. That would be the first and last time I'd want to drink this stuff. Starting to irritate my stomach. Tastes like it came out of the sewer. People been drinking this since 1589? People must have been drunk already to start drinking this shit.

On-tap @ Hofbrau Bierhaus NYC.

Not much to say except that this is a damn near textbook dunkel weizen.

Brown and hazy with a big, creamy, off-white head. Great fruity aroma with some spices mixed in. Think baked banana bread... More banana with some clove in the flavor. Very soft with medium-full body. Good carbonation. Not as quenching as its lighter hefeweizen counterpart, but it's tasty in its own right. Nothing bad to say about this beer, it's exactly what you think it will be and that's not a bad thing.

Murky brown color with beige head. Aroma has toasted malts, grains, bread crust and some banana esters. Taste follows with the banana notes, dough, light caramel and toasted malts. Medium body with medium plus carbonation. There is a light cardboard and dirty rag off-taste but it's very subtle.

From the tap at the Panama Beach Hofbräuhaus, it was poured into a weizenbier glass and is a hazy brownish amber with a nice light tan or maybe off-white head. The nose is classic dunkelweizen, with a bready scent and some banana. Easy drinking taste that makes you want more... Yum!

Pours a cloudy copper brown color with a medium beige head. Aroma off wheat,banana,bread,caramel and cloves. The flavour is sweet an fruity with bready malty notes and spicy notes from the cloves. The finish has a slight bitterness but the aftertaste is weak and the flavour is a little to watery I think. The mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. Medium body with a high carbonation.
I think this is a mediocre dunkelweizen compared to a lot off other german examples. Is good and easy drinking but when it comes to the flavour is not very exiting.

The beers produced by Hofbrua tend to have much fame but not the best beers of Bavaria. I usually disappointing. This, without being fantastic, but I found the mediocre, like many of this producer. Style is probably one of my favorite German. Repeat.

Had this on tap at an Austrian restaurant in Kansas City, on draft.

Pours a dark brown, with a small off white head.

Faint clove and overly ripe banana, however, not a lot of nose to this beer.

Certainly more clove and less banana than other Bavarian dunkelweizens I've had. A little more of the base malts coming through, slightly sweet.
