Smooth, refreshing taste, yet light for a Dunkel

I had this beer on-tap originally at the Hofbrauhaus in Germany and then again at the Hofbrauhaus in Las Vegas. You simply cannot find this beer at any store (in the US) outside of going to one of the Hofbrauhaus restaurants.

Simply put, this is the best beer I have ever had. I sure some of it had to do with how fresh it was in Munich, but everything about this beer is nearly perfect.

The color is a deep brown and it almost looks like it would be extremely heavy like a dopplebock. However, when it hits your lips, you can almost not believe how light and flavorful it is, and it is so smooth on the palate.

I have bought many a dunkle weiss in the states and have been unable to find anything close to how good this beer is. If you ever come across this beer, do yourself a favor and order a full liter.

L) Hazy cola brown, suspended yeast, puffy head dissipates quickly
S) Banana, sweet citrus fruit, mild spice and mild esters. Classic German Heffe
T) Sweet caramel, banana & clove. Delicious
F) Surprisingly light and smooth. Ample carbonation with bottle conditioned fizz
O) Outstanding example of the dunkel weisse category. Unfortunately hard to find but worth the effort

Had this with some bratwursts and sauerkraut at Hofbrau Munchen in Panama City, FL, at Pier Park. Paired very well with my meal, and as far as I know you can only get this beer at their restaurants/gastropubs. Not the best dunkelweizen I've had, but solid nontheless, and a great accompaniment to German cuisine.

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.
