Drank from my Erdinger Weizen glass

A - Pours a weak clear Mahogany colour, that has a two fingered off White head that reduces quickly to a film that laces.

S - Nose is mainly dark fruits and small banana.

T - Noy much really other than small Banana and fruity malts and a little metallic.

M - Medium body and medium carbonation,

O - Nothing fantastic and there are much better examples of the style.

Brown, dark caramel. Light brown foam, abundant.
Weisse smell, with banana and cloves. Then caramel.
At a second try, the caramel is stronger, and there is also a light roasted (hazelnut), and the fruity notes are lighter.
In the taste the classic notes of wheat and caramel, over all.
There is also some roasted hint.
In the aftertaste, after a start of caramel, there is a roasted and lightly burned finish.
Good and thirst quenching beer, after all, even if I'd like it a little less sweet.

This is an interesting seasonal from Hofbrauhaus (they called it a "DarkWeiz"). Cloudy orange color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is a little fruity and a little wheaty. I am not that familiar with the DunkelWeizen style but the flavor was a mixture of malt, cider, banana and caramel. Smooth and mostly drinkable but lopsided. I would go back to the Dunkel next time.

A: A very nice dark amber color, a little cloudy against ligth, with a two fingers head faint beige that fades not to fast with some residual.

S: Clear wheat aroma, citrus and sour is at hand.

T: Not very intense flavor, very wheat, some bitterness and in the middle the sour.

M: Refreshing at the beginning then the bitterness and sourness that last good enough with a some sticky feeling in the mouth.

Shy of mahogany but past copper. Head is not too timid at first but simmers down quickly and doesn't like much lacing if any. Nose is phenolic with clove and banana evenly balanced. Fruity enough with the hint of wheat.

Flavor is again on par with the style guidelines but in terms of the mouthfeel it's a let-down. Too thin and metallic, not enough good bubbles and the ones present are a little abrasive. Drinkable and decent, but the overall attenuation is off and it takes away from drinking this style.

Hofbrau Dunkel Weisse, PC, Florida

A hazy with a thick head. 4

S There is just the estery yeast smell typical of wheat beers with no roast aroma at all. If I couldn't see it, I doubt I could tell from the aroma that this was a dunkel. 3

T Not a lot of roast, but it is there. There is some biscuity flavor also. The taste is more similar to the HB hefe weizen than to a dunkel. In fact, I am puzzled at how they put so much color into the beer without adding roast flavor.  It is smooth, very lightly hopped, and easy to drink. A dark beer for the non-dark beer drinker. A good beer, but lacks the roast to match the color. 3.5

M medium body, thick mouthfeel, carbonation is good. 4

D It is certainly an easy drinking beer, interchageable with the hefe, so far the best Hofbrau beer I've tasted and will be my choice when I visit HB until its gone. 4

500ml bottle, 11/12 date, poured into weizen glass

a: pours a very deep blackish ruby color, very pretty, with a one finger off-white head which stays nicely.

s: wheat and dark malts, but the thing that really hits you is the banana - smells like a tasty slightly overripe banana. really nice.

t: wheat and roasted malts, a bit of the banana but less than in the nose, and some yeastiness as well. tastes less "dunkel" than others i have tried.

o: a really nice dunkelweizen at a good price. perhaps the taste let me down a bit after such a great aroma, and there is a bit of a metallic finish.
