Pours a slightly hazed dark amber color with a two finger yellowed white head that clings to everything. Popping the cap sends sweet wheat malts aromas wafting towards my being. Hints of various fruits, lots of clove and some banana round out the nose quite well. The taste of this pulls me in a couple of directions. I'm first hit with some caramel, burnt sugar, and plums. That is followed up by and hint of lemon, clove and banana. First I think bock then its clear the hefe is in the house. Leaves a lingering spicy wheat taste on the tongue. Medium body, creamy smooth mouthfeel, lots of carbonation. Not usually something I would pick up, but I rather enjoyed this one. I could see a few of these on a warm day in my future.

Just had my first one ever and I pretty much agree with everything that the previous reviewer said. Nice beer. Pretty refreshing. Nice complexity. Quite enjoyable. I especially liked the fruity banana notes mingled with the heavier chocolate notes.
I really enjoy these yeasty beers from southern Germany -- lots of character without being thick or syrupy. Dark malt toastiness mixed with the wheat lightness and the yeast tang make for a load of flavors. Yum!

Much better than I had expected from the rather unpleasant sounding name. (har har)

From a 12oz bottle poured a slightly cloudy amber colour with a huge frothy off white head. Smells of lighty toasted malts, light fruit and bread. Tastes sweet and smooth, pretty well balanced. I'm usually not a fan of this style of beer but this one is quite good and I could see my self picking it up again.

Muddy light brown colour topped by a creamy tan head. Served in a weiss glass, it left plenty of lacing and maintained its head through to the end. Banana and cloves are prominent in the aroma, and there's a rich chocolate maltiness here as well. Light fruity banana sweetness and a little bit of a doughy flavour. Some dark grain chocolate character and finishes with a round spiciness. Creamy, slick texture and just off-dry at the end. Slight grain astringency. Very enjoyable and not a style that shows up around here very often.

Deep coppery orange, with just a little yellow at the edges, thin off white head that lasted well as a cap. Aroma is full of banana and some spicy clove, some chocolatey, bready yeast. Quite a bit of banana in the taste too, banana bread like. More lemony zest shows up as it warms too. Mouthfeel might have been a bit lighter than some dunkels, easy to drink.

Verdict: this beer is very true to style, a fine dunkel weizen. No flavors are too extreme, wouldn't call it the best I have tried of the style, but it's pretty good, and very sessionable.

Cloudy syrup brown color with a finger high frothy thick cream colored head that sticks around for a few minutes before crumbling down to a solid skim always present and drippy strings of lace with some minimal stickyness. Secure hefe nose of wheaty toastyness and clove spice with hints of apple skin and banana and some phenolic notes underneath. Taste is a toasted malt forthcoming in a pleasant full softness, playful and fluffy wheatyness with mild spice of clove and small notes of banana and melon husks. Feel is medium bodied with a nice soft fluffyness of nearly full carbonation that floats through the palate with ease and makes for some good drinking.

Poured whole bottle into my hefe glass and received a one-finger head that really receeded slowly. A nice smell combining citric notes such as lemon, orange and banana with some spices like clove and pepper. A quality lemon-zest taste with a smooth mouthfeel as the spices are balanced in this beer, so there is some crispness hidden in there with the hops. Also a good malt taste is tucked in there, something like cocoa or toffee, and there might be some caramel in there too for that hint of sweetness.
Semi-dry backbite seals the deal, as this is a great dark hefe and I would recommed this beer to anyone to try, not just dunkel fans.
