Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier Dunkel

$2.49, Green’s on Ponce de Leon, Atlanta, GA, USA.

Poured into the Southampton Weizen glass, this has a head that looks superb. Initially huge, it dies slowly to give a rocky and pitted perfect froth. Surprisingly little lacing. Typical cloudy orange body underneath.

Aroma has some bananas, but there seems to be a spiced overtone to it as well – maybe some apples? As it warms the bananas become increasingly apparent.

The tastes are mainly muted bananas. What I like about this beer is it is quintessential for the style. Ask me what a Dunkel should be – this is it. Maybe I should have scored it 5 across the board, but my ratings are not only style based.

Nice round mouthfeel – satisfying and refreshing and light. Surprisingly light actually. Delicious.

Drinakability is excellent, a lovely example and a quality beer.
