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

Appearance: It has a murky brown/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves almost no lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of yeast, banana, spices, cloves and wheat malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a nice spiciness upfront, cloves, banana, yeast and wheat malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium/high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas. Different from other Hefe's I've had before but still good nevertheless.

Bought at the bottle store off of "Local 44", a bar in Philly. Part of a mixed six I got. One of the "1001 Beers You Should Taste Before You Die" beers.

German beers generally are better on draft than in the bottle, I think, so I approached this one with a bit of trepidation. On the other hand, Aventinus is one of my all-time favorite beers, in my humble opinion one of the best dozen beers being brewed today and likely the best wheat beer bar none. So I approached it with a little hope, as well.

I ended up liking this very much. I remember having this on draft in the past and liking it even more that way, but who knows, that may well have been the time/place/environs. Pours a very very dark, russet gold, with a fluffy white head that seems to me to have just the faintest tinge of gold in it. The nose is what you'd expect, banana overlaid on top by cloves or a similar spice and underneath by lemon juice.

The body seems a little thin to me, which to me is it's one big weakness. A sturdier body might help the flavors stand up. The flavors are quite nice, I think, a bananay-grainy mash that has a marvelous, banana bread -like finish.

Recommended, although I would have to taste this against other German hefes to really get a final sense of it. The Aventinus is a sturdier, more fascinating beer, admittedly.

Find it in Greece. My feel is that this is some mixture of hefeweizen,bock and Belgium brown beers. But,very successful combination.

A-Brown white foam,lasting not for long. Color is interesting,light brown,almost muddy.
S-Nothing to much special,maybe some dark fruits. Almost usual for hefes.
T/M-There is only one bad thing in this beer in my opinion. To much carbonation in the beginning. Lots of spices,dark malt,fruits,very refreshing,drinkable beer.
O-On a first taste,i wasn't to much exited,but after few minutes,that was it,one of the best i had.

Bottled 2/10/2012.

Pours a murky light brown with a foamy beige head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, wheat, yeast, and some slight spice aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild banana flavor on the finish. There is a mild spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty but the smell isn't as good in my opinion.

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

Appearance: Pours with a solid two fingers of head that retained quite well and produced solid lacing. The body has an incredibly high amount of carbonation, almost too much. It has a yellow tan colour which producing good cloudy appearance like a good hefe should.

Smell: Fairly standard stuff here, cloves with a banana backing with a barley backing. Doesn't seem to be very pronounced though and warming doesn't help it's case.

Taste: A little sweet as it starts with a brown sugar taste backed by wheat and barely malt. It then shifts as some very light cloves and mild banana comes forward. Has an acidic touch at the end.

Mouthfeel: It has an almost buttery consistency that doesn't quite sit well, as with the acidic touch at the end. The head and light clove aftertaste does well, and the carbonation while being high, does a good job.

Drinkability: Well it's smooth to drink but the carbonation makes it a little gassy. Medium bodied but I dunno I think the acidic note and buttery consistency isn't doing me any favours.

Final Thoughts: It's good, but I dunno it just tastes a little off to me. I really wish there was more to say, but really it's a good hefe, just nothing stands out. In any case, certainly give it a shot.

Although it is labelled as a hefeweizen, it looks , smells and tastes like a dunkelweizen. A rich, fruity, caramel loaded, malty dark weizen that rivals any Bavarian version of the style. This is the gold standard of the dunkelweizen beer style.
