3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at J. J. Bitting. Pours a murky browned light amber with a thin white head. Sweet malt, caramelized bananas, yeast and wheat. Nice amount of wheat and banana flavors coming through. Toast and caramelized banana again. Sweet and wheat filled, musk and toast. Not my favorite style, but this is well executed. Another big beer (at 7.4%) where the alcohol is hidden nicely.

Nice Dunkelweizen with a strong wheat flavour and aroma. The chocolate is much less pronounced but gives it good character. I didn’t taste or smell any hops. Nice palate.

Sampler at the brewpub. Cloudy brown color with aromas of spiced dark quickbread with some banana yeast. A little touch of stale butter (diacetyl?) as well which eventually dissipated. Off-sweet dark malty flavor with some overripe bananas, fruit, spices and a mild roasty bitterness on the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin dense creamy head of very fine bubbles. Muddy dark brown in color. Interesting aroma with roasted grains, a bit of banana and . Little tart flavor with plenty of body. Little chalky with a nice roastyness and a bit of chocolate. FInish is nice and creamy with a bit of bitterness and a nice lingering roasty flavor. I liked this one a lot as a whole.
