Hits those brown color notes with a cola looking head on the top. The yeast is so seemingly mixed up here, you get lots of banana phenols in a dark beer! Cool I guess. Booze is heavy in the aroma, wheat a backdrop aroma wise.

Taste was so much spice rack. This really had a belgian yeast vibe going heavy for it as the prominent flavor delivery mechanism. Lots of clove, tea, dark wheat bread vibes. Can just hear old school half century guys talking this up. Would recommend only to dunkel fans.

Dark and nutty in color, with silky head, lazy carbonation keeps the head alive during the course of the drink. Flavors of toffee and butterscotch, and a little coffee bitterness make this an easy drinker. Lovely!

Poured from the tap at Otto's in Willow Grove, PA. The appearance – is a light brown color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is a powerful toasted malt smell that is really pleasing. The flavor matches the aroma. A really good dunkel weisse

Great beer with good spice (mostly clove and fruit) but only slightly overpowered by carbonation. Def let it warm up and sit out before fully enjoying

Had at the Lenz Gastatten restaurant in Munich, pretty close to the Theresienwiese, July 25th. Poured a dark amber color with some ruby highlights, nice frothy head with lacing. Great aroma of the spicy yeast and bananas. Pretty good flavor, too. Was expecting a bit more, but honestly I'm very satisfied with it. A bit more sweeter and less spicier than your traditional dunkel, but it's a nice break. Light body and sweet flavor makes it easy to consume a few.

Poured a muddy dark brown with a huge light beige fluffy head. Aroma of wheat, clove, banana, brown bread. Flavor of banana, wheat, brown bread, hint of chocolate malt.

On tap at the Tap and Growler here in Eugene.

It's hard to imagine a better dunkel weissen, frankly. The nose offers up considerable spice and dark fruits, which is replicated very nicely on the palate. Add to that a completely reasonable abv., and it's hard for me to pass this by, whenever I see it on the tap list. Just an excellent, well crafted dunkel from this always reliable German brewery.
