On tap into a weizen glass @ Heidelberg Haus, Seattle. Pours a deep amber w/ a 1-finger beige head, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is dark bready malt, ripe banana, clove, fruity esters.

Taste is dark sweet wheat malt, clove and other spice, banana.

Mouthfeel is soft and mellow, nice carbonation.

Overall a solid dark hefeweizen, a tasty pairing for my plate of jaegerschnitzel and spaetzle.

A: Dark brown wood stain colour with a ever slight red tinge when held to the light, 2 fingers of rich creamy tan brown light foamy head, heavily carbonated.

S: Vanilla, bananas and coriander, yeasty typical mustiness of a hefe or dunkel weisse. Ever slight typical plastic scent.

T: Bananas, bananas, bananas, coriander, malty caramel. Very well balanced and delicious.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation. Fine bubbles in carbonation.

O: Delicious, love this Dunkelweissen. Not usually a fan of these, but I am of this one. Could see it going well with cheesecake.

A slight Amber hew. Mostly sweet with a thick mouth feel. The banana flavors of the yeast dominate the palate and not much else is going on here. I did finish my growler but I wouldn't buy it again. There are lots of better Weisse beers out there. The quest continues....

Compared to the regular Maisel Weisse this is a bit of a letdown. The mouthfeel is fairly thin and the flavours are more subdued than I expected. Not a bad dunkel but this brewer is known to be top shelf in wheat beers so a bit of a drop in expectations.
