Pours a splendid, cloudy rust color with a massive tan head. Aroma is very spicy and fruity, as is the flavor. Bananas, clove, coriander, and cinnamon all present. Flavor also displays a bit of rye-bread flavor, which was very good. Ends grassy. Very good.

This beer did not impress me too much. Very bland and one dimensional. Nice pour. Giant head foamy and yeasty. Nice and spicy in the nose and uptake but all in all very one dimensional.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled draught at Bull & Bear Inn, Stockholm.
Muddy orange, creamy head. Lihtly phenolic nose. Sweet with clean mouthfeel and some toffee. Lightly bready. Overall decent, but too clean, and offering too little out of interest.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Indiana Ale Fest at Fort Wayne. Bottle. A medium sized off-white head with fine-small sized bubbles that fully diminished. Uncarbonated, semi-transparent and a brown hue. The hue was too light for this beer being a Dunkelweizen. The aroma was hoppy, spicy and clove. It had a malty, clove and fruity taste. The mouthfeel was smooth, watery and thin. Not impressed with this one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light brown, almost cola color, with a tan head which remains for a while... pour this one slow. Wheat beer aroma with some caramel, grass and smoky malts. Taste is pretty good. Banana stands out, as do cloves and some fruit, the maltiness and coffee notes add another dimension to an already fine beer. Maybe a bit thin, but still, easy drinkin!

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew poured a large head of off-white colored mostly diminishing bubbles the diminished for a log while then suddenly stopped and stayed around for a long time. The body was softly carbonated transparent and brown colored. The mouth feel was smooth initially and mildly tingly in the finish. The flavor contained notes of wheat and yeast. It was not very Dunkelish IMHO.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Delicious. Chewy and juicy body, lightened by the wheat. Strong and distinct apple/clove aroma. Nice spicy tart finish. Very refreshing while being satisfying on the body side of things. Interesting, one of my favorites.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy orange brown with a collapsing creamy off-white head. Sweet banana and wheat aroma. Banana sweetness up front then a bit of wheat then it falls flat on its face and all flavor dissapears. Body is medium-light with a dryish finish. Overall a dissapointment.
