Orange to brown body, not too hazy, under a frothy head. This was an older bottle, so some of the haze may have been in the sedimentation. Retains a hint of dark roasted flavor, but lots of tiny bubbles from the wheat. German hops pretty well balanced.

Not bad, slightly chocolatey, and fruity (banana) flavours, but not one of the better dark wheats you'll find. Generally, easy drinking dark German wheat, smooth and lghtly tart and refreshing, uncomplex flavour, and a nice one for session drinking, look to Andechser, Paulaner, for better examples of the style. This isn't bad though.
