2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Short, 12oz twist-off bottle. Filtered, deep amber, creamy light tan colored head. Light aroma of malted wheat. Nutty flavor, malt sweetness. light bodied. kinda too light. Overall, Boring. I hate to say it, the new A-B Michelob DunkelWiess looks, smells, and tastes more to style than this one. Its an Amber Wheat, not a Dunkelwiess.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle, thanks to Douglas88. Pours dark amber color with a good half-inch head in my common shaker glass. Shows a "clean" beer smell with some mineral water to it. Taste shows some amber malt, not much wheat spiciness. Kind of dry, without much bitterness. Mouthfeel gets a little thin. But then some peppery hops come through, showing this is a European style, after all. Just pleasant, but that’s okay. We’ve already found some better beers out of Utah.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another hook up from douglas88. reddish orange color. Toasted malt and bread aroma. Candi sugar flavor with some wheat and baked bread in there as well. The baked grain flavors give way to a slight sweetness. Decent but i’ve had better amber/brown/dunk’ls recently.

Thanks to douglas88 for the bottle. Pours a reddish brown with very minimal head. Stale cardboard aroma with a little malt thrown in. Smooth malty taste with a hint of fruit. I thought they could have done more with this.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2008 Bottle bought at Smiths. Pours a dark orange color with a small white head. The aroma is wheat, some malts and an earthy aspect. The flavor is fairly light and somewhat sweet; some malt and hops, a wheaty/earthy quality and some roasted notes. Decent, and sort of unusual, a bit thin.

Is it an amber wheat or is it a dunkel? I’d lean more toward the amber wheat in appearance, but the flavor is oddly closer to a dunkel. Perhaps this is the 1st non-dark colored dunkel?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle from thebeerpirate. Coppery pour with a white head. Nice lacing. Toasty bread nose, almost a burnt malt scent, a light earthy hop note. Burnt flavor, some wheatiness, a herbal quality I can’t put a finger on. Seems bold but without direction. Eh.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Dark orange brown color, light puffy head and a touch of lacing. The nose is very toasty and bready with some yeast, flour and grass. The flavor needs a bit more of the doughy malts to bring some of the malts forward, instead a lightly bitter hop note just dangles there in front of all of the caramel to tease you. The finish is even further downhill from here. Thin mouthfeel and a watery tail. The nose is the crecendo followed by the boring, uninspired finale.
