0.5 L brown bottle with a brown and gold label. Tall dark cream colored head faded slowly to a thick film above the murky brown beer. Fresh aroma of yeast, cocoa, a bit of banana, and maybe even a couple nuts. Soft, full, smooth mouthfeel. This is a full flavored beer! A big hunk of dough along with cocoa and toasted malts, and even a bit of banana too. Mildly sweet flavors are cut by a dash of bitterness and some carbonation in the finish. A fine Dunkelweizen.

Classic strongly flavored dark German wheat beer.

Dark amber color with a touch of brown and the cloudy hefeweizen look. Has the appealing Bavarian quality of subtle, creamy carbonation that lasts so well in the glass. Fills the mouth with flavor. Strong hefeweizen estery flavors, very fragrant. Tastes of rye bread, ripe banana, and lots of cloves. Caramel and roasted malt flavors. Touch of hops is just right.

One of the best dark wheat beers I've had in the lower-alcohol German style. After the flavors melt in your mouth for a while you are eager for another gulp.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

Look: pours a hazy brown color with a nice white fluffy head.
Smell: Hop, yeast, banana, sweet malts and cloves
Taste: Banana, sweet malts, clove again and some caramel. The aftertaste is very dry and very thin
Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation and a very very thin body
Overall: Smell is nice, the taste as well, but it feel too thin to be perfect. Bit like a watered down German Hefeweizen

Poured into weizen glass, dark brown, no opacity unless held up to the light. Thick, creamy head (2 fingers) faded slowly, with half finger head remaining throughout tasting. Ample carbonation. Thick, fill, creamy mouthfeel, with smooth taste, the full grain flavor lasting in the mouth. Tasty! A nice beer for a grey winter's day....

Brown, quite hazy. Beige head, abundant and compact. A perfect dunkel weizen appearance.
The smell is quite delicate, malty, phenolic notes, and toasted, too, maybe hazelnut. A hint of peanuts butter.
Quite carbonated. Malty and toasty taste, with hazelnut notes, light caramel, yeast.
Quite good dunkel weizen, better in the taste than in the smell.
Easy to drink, pleasant.
