beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2007
Pours a jet black color with a ring of light brown lace. Aroma of black wheat. The flavor has some black wheat and chocolate, it has a decent roasty side to it. The body is light with an oily and dry texture and moderate carbonation.

AlKHall (161) - West Hartford, Connecticut, USA - AUG 6, 2006
On Tap @ Founders. Pours a dark dark brown with a minimal head. Aroma is wheaty and the initial flavor is malty. The primary flavor I picked up is roasted - burnt coffe with notes of chocolate and molasses. Some degree of hop bitterness. It wasn’t bad, but Founders has so much more that is better.

Terminus (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 24, 2006
tap at the brewpub-deep brown with a fuzzy kack-head. banana and chocolate nose with touches of dusty esters, lots of yeast twang and some chocolate in there as well. body is medium with lighter than expected carbonation since its a weizen. finish has notes of chocolate, with a touch of bananas. the chocolate goes on for a long time in the finish. I dig it and its pretty under-rated if you ask me.

CaptainCougar (7131) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2006
On tap at the brewpub on 4/28/06: Nearly opaque dark brown pour has a thin-lacing, wispy tan head. Slightly tart dark caramel malty nose. Body starts tart and sweet with some toasty dark caramel maltiness and a touch of bready yeast. Decent balance, but the light tartness isn’t very true to style.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 26, 2006
on tap at the brewery. Black with thin white/grey/brown head. Nose is very thin with a big bite of coffee. Taste is mostly coffee and gets pretty chakly and bitter.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2006
Draft at Founders. Dark brown body with tan head. The aroma is chocolate, roast and light fruit. The flavor is chocolate and bananas, fairly dry. Light body with lively carbonation.

At the brewery...this was an extremely dark looking beer. Aroma was sweet and bitter. Flavor was a bit chocolately and had some vegetables as well. Mouthfeel was a bit heavy.

Zeswaft (1368) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 30, 2006
I enjoyed this. Tap at brewery. Poured dark brown/black with a dark tan head. It could have been a little more densely flavored. Not much aroma, a little chocolate malt maybe. Body was little. Lots of chocolate flavor and a little banana. A better than average dunkleweizen.

sersdf (1015) - chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2006
this kinda sucked. not at all like any dunkelweizen i’ve had before. tons of chocolate, it seemed way more like a stout or perhaps non-nitrogenated dry stout to me. basically no banana.
