3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle served in a dimpled mug. Pours amber-brown with a slight haze and minimal head. The thin fizzy top grips the glass in tight bubbles, but leaves no lacing. Sweet belgian nose, with fruity esters, toffee, and coconut. Moderately sweet flavor. Light-medium body, fizzy carbonation, surprisingly slicky texture, and a soft, sweet, coconutty dry finish. I donít think I would call this a dunkel. Itís more of a light belgian brown, and a very nice one at that.

I find this ale smooth on the tongue. Aroma is malty and roasty. Pours a nice golden brown with a light brown head.

Mildly ok. Flavors are there, but comes off a bit watered down overall. I like my Dunkelís THICK boyeeee!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle- Lunar pours a hazy dark amber color with a light head that fades quickly. It has a pleasant grain smell, but nothing distinct. The taste was initially a bit sweet with a mild citrus finish. The feel was light and no lingering taste. It goes down smooth & easy. This was a pleasant brew for relaxing but thatís about it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly cloudy amber brown with a small sized white foamy head. The aroma is wheaty, yeasty and sweet. There is a sort of lactic/tart quality here as well. Comes off as a little yeasty and wheaty with some spicy hops. Thin and muddy, kind of bland.Finish is crisp with a tart aftertaste.

This was not what I was expecting at all. It wasnít bad but it felt like it was heading in the direction of a dunkel version of an American wheat ale. Unremarkable but I think I may need to try again. Serving: Bottle

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bready aroma with some minor nutty notes. Chestnut brown pour, nearly clear. Head rapidly dissipates, but is white and frothy. Starts bready and full of a mild sweet malt moving into a nutty finish. A medium body overall with an interesting finish. Unique from your common ale.
