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.

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 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.

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.

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.
