3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating # 700- This bottle was provided by one great guy, and a great ratebeerian. Philip was generous enough to grab this for me, for an in person trade. I’ll drink this in a toast to his generosity. This bottle poured a very cloudy and murky deep amber/brown body, capped my a lucious and creamy foamy cap. In the nose, sweet banana is the main contender. Also in the ring arespicy cloves, and an underlying bready aroma. Flavours consist of sweet fruit and clove, apple pastries, and just a tad of a bitter bite. Smooth finish, with a slight fruity bite that lingers. This style keeps me wanting more. Many thanks again to Philip for the opportunity!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy deep amber with a moderate off-white head. The aroma is like a spicy bread with an underlying sweet wheat aroma. The flavor is sweeter than I expected what could be fruits mingle to taste like sugary bubblegum with very little lingering bitterness. It is foamy and smooth in the mouth, going down quite easy.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very nice, carmely orange pour with a very nice, thick off white head that lasted almost the whole pint. Aroma was a fantastic blend of the the roasted wheat, fruits (bananna and maybe a bit of apple) and the spices (cloves). A very wonderful Heffe tast on the palat but not as sweet at the Brau Weiss. Very smooth with a plesant aftertaste. Was wonderful with the Bratwurst and Kraut.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big off white persistant head atop a hazy gold pour. Aromas of yeast, bananna and spice are reflected in the flavor profile of earthy bread, clove and caramel malt. Medium body and a fine velvety carbonation top off a great example of the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Malty, citrusy, yeasty aroma. Strong wheat flavor. Not very dark for what the bottle reads as a "dark wheat beer". I might just drink this one in the summer instead of the winter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Any first impressions?
-An initially lofty head dissipates on the hazy amber-brown fire.
-Plump banana esters, red apple peel, mild cloves, and plentiful straightforward yeast leap from the glass.
-Fizzy, expansive carbonation throws the banana sweetness and earthy yeast onto the tastebuds quite directly.
What if you dig deeper?
-Citrusy fruitiness surrounds it all, making it rather quenching.
-Peaches have fallen on the soil.
-Dry, bready yeast takes care of the finish without its many esters.
-The flavor profile is a little too yeast-driven for my tastes, nearly burying the malt, but this is nonetheless a very good dunkelweizen.
