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

An Austrian-American neighbor turned me onto this beer over a decade ago back when it was more readily available in bomber size bottles before the Paulaner merger. A most exceptional dunkle-weiss in most respects although I think it has gone down a bit in quality over the years from mass production. I do remember when availability of this beer would be hit or miss back in the day from import shortages here in the States.

Current formulation pours with an extremely thick head into a fluted glass no matter how careful you are. Thick bandy lacing. Mouthfeel is wet and warm. Taste is nice and roasted, thoughts of hot fresh bread with hints of caramel and sweet dried fruits assail me with every sip. A bit of acidicness is prevalent when drinking.

This beer is best experienced when combined with a ligher beer like Hoegaarden White. Enjoy.

Like with current Paulaners a 6 or 12 pack may contain a sour stinker, if you drink this and it's sour or metallic tasting then it's gone over, pour it out and move along to the next.

This is one of the best dark wheat beers in the world. The taste is so smooth for a wheat beer. A lot of wheat beers will leave a funny flavor if your not used to drinking them, but this one is so smooth. Color is exceptional and you have to pour this beer in a tall glass and watch the beautiful bubbles. Its magical.

This is the smoothest beer I have ever tasted. It also is sweet not bitter which turns me off.
It has a smooth creamy head that makes it even better. I compare it to 30 year old Scotch!
Try it, you will like it. Now if I could just find more like this. My local distributor did not order
enough so my local retailers are out of it. Need some near zip code 54914.
