Brown amber color with a huge head with good retention.
Nice aroma with notes of toasted malts, cloves, bananas, tangerines, some cocoa and yeast.
Pleasant flavor with notes of cloves, mild wood, caramels, some bananas with cinnamon, yeast, a sprinkle of cocoa, vanilla, ginger and bread with raisins and nuts. Dry aftertaste with a mild citrusy sensation.
Light body with good carbonation.
Always pleasure to drink Dunkelweizen with a good balance between drinkability and flavor complexity.

50 cl bottle (bb 27.03.15) into a weizen pokal. Hazy deep amber body, medium tan head that fades pretty quickly, little lacing, holds a thin veil. Sweet smell with wheat, banana, some dark malt and little clove.

At first the taste is sweet malt with a little tart wheat, followed by an intensifying taste of toasted bready malt and mild yeast banana with notes of chocolate, ending dry and a bit watery with a slight clove spiciness, leaving a pleasant and sweet toasted caramel aftertaste with a hint of banana.

Medium-light body, high soft carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Overall a flavorful but light dunkelweizen. Drinkable and pleasant.

500ml Bottle from Habana restaurant, Friedrichshain, Berlin (€3.50):
Medium brown, slightly cloudy with a foamy white 1cm head that's smaller than expected but holds very well.

Wheat & clove initially, some citrus & bubblegum after that with some lighter malts & yeast too; not a bad start with some fruits lingering in the background as well.

Wheat & light malts with faint caramel & cloves. Spice & touches of water come through around the middle. There was some banana in there as well but this was slightly weaker than I would have liked.

Smooth & easy going with some sweetness but I was disappointed to discover that it was slightly watery in places making it seem a touch bland. Some spice & decent carbonation offset this for the most part but not completely.

A pleasant beer & one that was easy to enjoy without really exciting. Not bad & quite refreshing but the hefeweizen version of this one is better.

Had a pint on tap at an Edmonton, Alberta area pub (Spruce Grove to be specific). After being pleasantly surprised by this brewery's weissbier offering (see that review), I had fairly high expectations for this one. Certainly this was technically proficient and nothing was obviously wrong, a brown-red wood color with ample fizz and an inch or so of beige quick-breaking head. Aroma features the expected banana and clove elements along with some caramel and faint chocolate. Body is much like that of a lighter macro-brewed weiss, on the thin side and featuring an apple-like fruity "young beer" flavor along with some brown sugar, raisin and clove. Banana is low level, at least to my palate. A little sour and quite crisp. Not as complex as its lighter stablemate but pleasant enough I suppose. I have enjoyed less fruity and more malty examples of the style but makes a decent enough patio brew when in the mood for something a touch darker. Not particularly sweet and maybe a little bland. Was hoping for something more robust.
