Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a chestnut color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of banana, cloves, wheat. Taste is banana, bubble gum, light cloves, apples at the finish. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and pretty good beer.

Swing top bottle.
Hazy amber with a weak head despite medium carbonation.
Medium body.
Aroma is largely that of a regular hefe but the darker malts show clearly in the flavor.

1pt .9 fl oz brown bottle with flip top

Kaiser Brau Veldensteiner Dunkles WeiBbier has a dark rust color and light cloudy body. An off-white 2-finger foamy head was formed as it filled my weizen glass. The head showed good retention as consumed. Unfortunately, the appearance is the best part of this ale. The nose was light, a little roasty and sweet. The taste was almost watered down, with flavors of roasted malt and a little nutty. The mouth feel was very too. It was thin and watery for the style.

Overall, there are much better German Dunkelweizens - sorry to say I was disappointed and will not revisit.

Poured from bottle into a weizen glass

Appearance –Pours a hazy-murky lighter brown color with a rather thick and creamy tan head. The head has a wonderful level of retention fading very slowly over time to leave a medium level of lacing.

Smell- The aroma is quite sweet. It is heavy of a caramel and dark fruit smells with a light roasted brown bread. Other yeasty aromas and aromas of banana and clove are there as well.

Taste – The taste begins with a bready and light caramel taste. As the taste advances further flavors of yeast and banana come to the tongue. From there the roastiness of the flavor grows a little bit more toward the middle/end of the taste. At the end flavors of clove and cardamom then come to the tongue, along with a bit of citrus hop, leaving a lightly bittered and spiced bready flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The thickness/creaminess of the beer is on the average to slightly above average side of a brew of 5.4 % , while the carbonation level is very low. The body is decent for the bready and yeasty flavor of the brew, but the very light level of carbonation does not seem to suit the brew well, with a grater carbonation likely giving it a more refreshing flavor as well as being good for the spice and sweeter flavors of the taste.

Overall- Ah… it was alright, but nothing too special here. The taste was fairly balanced, but the mouthfeel was a little off. Not one I would likely go back too. While I would not go back to it I would say that is at least worth one try for anyone who has not had it.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a weizen glass.

A - A polluted brown hue with a touch of rich orange. Massive, frothy head that has great retention and lacing.

S - Banana, clove and dark fruits.

T - Nothing crazy here. A bit watered down flavors of bubblegum, pear, banana and clove.

M - A light-medium body with fair carbonation. A bit thin for the style.

O - A pretty good beer that I would not mind having again at a measly $2/ 500ml bottle. Many make this beer look meager in comparison, though alone it is not all that bad.

A: Light tan color, not too cloudy, 2" of head easily. The head looks nice and creamy.
S: The aroma hit me before I even got close to it. Mostly banana, some slight clove, not much malt in the aroma. Nice.
T: Taste is rather light. Slight bubble gum, a bit lemony, a little watery. Some slight sweetness. A little papery.
M: The nouthfeel seems off for this beer, just too watery, while there is a fairly present head, not very carbonated. Maybe I poured this too fast.
O: Not a bad beer, I think there are better versions of this. A bit better in terms of mouthfeel and a bit more flavor (higher mash temp?) and this would be pretty good.

Super murky deep copper color with a thick white head. Spicy yeast with lots of bread and clove character on the nose. some dark fruit. Head shows no signs of dieing.

Light body with rich flavors. Dark fruits and bright malts. Good balance. Crisp clean finish. Cleanses the palate with a slight yeast bite. Creamy mouthfeel. Pretty nice.

Holds together very well and showcases bright fruit flavors of apples and pie crust while remaining dark in character.
