Had on tap. Shades of medium brown in the opaque body, huge tan head, sporadic lacing. Sweet malt for style supports wheat, dark yeast, a hint of lemon and banana. Taste is sweeter too, but now has a touch of dried fig and clove, wheat is the clear star. Feel is medium bodied, smooth, full and frothy, but want more definition for the wheat elements but well balanced. This all being said, it went well with schnitzel

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.

Picked this up by accident not realizing it was a Dunkel. It was very pretty good but I found I dont like the dark HefeWeisse as much as LIke the regular.

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.
