A strange brew. Too sour for a weizen. No characteristic weizen aromas.

Brrrr. Beer tasting isn't always fun. This is a heavy overrated beer. It is really bad. Why doesn't anybody say so?

Looks very bad. Trouble, without any head. And it isn't the glass.

Smell is not appearant. The sour, duffy smell warns for the taste. But beer tasting is tasting, so I must drink. Sour like something is wrong.

This beer has nothing to do with whitebeer / wheatbeer. It is cursing to compare it with Dunkelweizen.

The mouthfeel is also bad. Headache beer.

Never again in this lifetime.

Pours a unfiltered amber copper color.
Smell is not strong but has a malt hint to it.
Taste is a sweet fruity, floral with a malt finish
A pretty good beer that is easy to drink but has character it is a full flavored beer that is hard to describe. If I had to call it anything I'd say it is half German Dunkel and half belgian wit.

Purchased from the Beers of Europe. Coming in a 300ml slim brown bottle, BB 05/2009, served chilled in a pint-size straight glass.

A: choosing not to disturb the yeast sediments, it pours a reddish amber hue, like a glass of well-infused black tea; topped with a fluffy off-white head settling fast to a cap, on top of mixed carbonation of huge and small bubbles.
S: hop resins, sour-sweet tangerine and plums, caramely malts, plus milder nutty as well as floral aroma... after numerous attempts (swirls), I still fail to bring out any remarkable aroma from the uninspiring and rather quiet liquid. There's nothing here that can relate it to my faintest impression of a Dunkel Weizen.
T: sour-sweet prunes, Golding-like citric hops, gristy caramely+dark malts, a little hint of cleaning-agent like phenol, spicy-bitter and a little chest-nutty in the finish. If wheat malt is used in the brew, it manifests itself probably via the mildly mineral touches of raw-ish malts. Apart from this, there's no telling whether wheat-malts are used in the traditional way as the German dunkel-weizen. If not, this beer shouldn't be categorised as a Dunkel-Weizen, but maybe "Dutch dark wheat bier"?
M&D: a naturally, mildly spritzy mouthfeel of fine carbonation demonstrates the work of the yeast sediments in the bottle. Although I find this beer very hard to like, I probably have restricted myself to the past experience of a traditional German Dunkel Weizen, and this is a totally different stuff! Apart from this, I really don't mind trying it again, maybe served cloudy next time to see if there's any hidden surprise~~

beautifull colour, amber, almost orange.

slightly troubled look, little head (skuumkop) but it could be the glass.

the smell is a little pale, a touch of fresh sour and a hint of seasalt (or maybe that's me wishful thinking, this beer coming from one of the small islands in the North Sea)

A refined but not complex taste, almost fruity in the start and a friendly bitter at the end. Nice, easygoing.

Started off right from the fridge, couldn't wait, got a lot nicer after letting it warm up.

Amber color, a lot of creaamy, elegant foam.
At the nose wheat, white fruit (gooseberry), sweet, but not too much.
At the taste again wheat, malt, sweetness, but not too much, white flowers and light fruit. Some banana in the end.
Hint of yeast.
Not bad.

On tap at Haven van Texel, Amsterdam.

Pours cloudy burnished gold with a white film that leaves no lace. Wax and honey on the nose. Caramel and toast malts undercut by a thin metallic graininess with grassy flinty hops to finish. Dry leave. Thin and crisp.

Drank this thinking it was a blonde, and looking back I still don't see where this would line up as Dunkelweizen. Wheat character is largely absent. Indistinct either way. Maybe it does better in bottles, but as is it's only good as a hot day quencher.

Best before 06-05. Poors in without a great head like you're used of a wheatbeer. Foam is gone fast and beercolor is copper/orangebrown.
Smell is malty with roast and litle yeastesters. No off arome but hardly any nose for a 6% beer. Taste is same story and feels like you're drinking a beer that had added lots of extra water. What's there is some malt, litle wheat carracter and hint of roast. All in all a rather dull beer but drinkable. Be aware though it doesn't taste that it has alcohol and it must have!

This 'donkerwit' or darkwhite beer pours a amber color with little head and a good amount of carbonation.

Smell was not very distinct, some wheat grainy notes and a fair amount of yeast smell, but not like a witbier or weizen.

Taste is fresh, wheat like and sizzling of carbonation. Some caramel notes and a bit sticky on the lipps. The yeast did not give a lot of character, certainly not a witbier/weizen taste. Very low bitterness.

This beer does not have the dryness and yeast profile of a dunkel weizen and is more a fresh summerbeer, rather than a dark wheat.
