A basic hefe brewed for the masses-tourists-visiting a beautiful city. Soft aromas, spice, banana, grains. Nothing stands out in a good or bad way. Very drinkable and enjoyable. You'll like it if you like hefes.

Looks delicious like all beer. Copper colored with a nice finger head that lingers. Bready and yeasty smell and taste. Not any distinct fruit to speak of. Very smooth and pleasant mouthfeel. Solid straightforward beer without complexity.

Pours two fingers of head on a cloudy dark straw body.
The aroma is barnyard and nutty.
The taste is balanced mild bitterness with a tame sweet note.
The texture is smooth.
That is a nicely balanced dunkel.

A - The color a well tanned college girl returning from Spring Break in Cabo. Good times.
S - Faint strawberry and honey.
T - Honey dew melon with a slight banana finish.
M - Appropriate for a dunkelweizen
D - Seems overly alcoholic for the style. Good for a pint or two.

I had this on-tap at the brauhaus on March 29, 2006.

A: Murky brown; White head, plenty of lace, but not much retention.

S: Bready malt, slight hint of fruit (citrus?).

T: Bready, slightly sweet (caramel), light banana (mostly in the aftertaste).

M: Light body is creamy; carbonation is light to moderate.

D: Very good.
