Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier Dark


I love dunkels, and this is a pretty legit German brewery. Supposedly, the world’s oldest brewery. I don’t think I’ve had this beer until a week or so ago, so I just had to get it. Let’s see if it’s as good as Ayinger’s

Dunkelweizen. 5.3% ABV. Germany.

Caramel color, nice head. It’s very hazy, of course.

Fantastic nose. I’m getting some yeast, banana, clove, brown sugar, honey, wheat.

Mouthfeel is on the light side, easy drinking.

Yeast and brown sugar up front and then you start getting the phenols and esters and ends with a nice fresh corn and banana flavor. It does seem to get a bit light on the midpalate though.

Damn tasty, just wish I didn’t get that watered down taste. Otherwise, excellent beer. 87 points.
