I ordered this beer along with others from austrianshop.com. I remember the first time when i went to europe in 2001, we were in innsbruck, austria and went to the pub adjacent to the inn we were staying at. The man behind the counter after talking about what beers i like in the states, asked me if i wanted "man" beer or "lady" beer! I of course said "man" beer and he broke out a couple of these for us.

At the time it was one of the best beers i had ever had, still a very good beer, i just think over the years my tastes have changed.

It pours out with a thick white head and that particular dunkelweizen smell of toasty bread and malt. Color was toffee and taste was still wonderful. The mouthfeel for me was what i remembered most, think and creamy almost and lingered on the pallette.

Still a great beer, just not as great as i remember it, that was 10 years ago though...
