COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep and dark colored, cloudy with yeast. Brewed with a darker roasted malt which adds some maltiness to the refreshing flavour of the Hefe-Weissbier.

Pours a hazy brownish amber with a pretty substantial foamy head. Aroma is floral and malt. Wheat and yeast dominate flavor. I thought that the flavor could have blossomed a little more, but it seems to stop short of a true fullness.

DocLock (9364) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Bottle from Whole Foods, Cary, NC. Poured into a pint glass, and I can see i should have used a Chimay grail. Brobdingnagian head and a hazy diarrhea colored pour. Aromas of huge malt, citrus, some hops, big banana and cloves, caramel, port. Tastes malty, with some hopcit, clove, banana, and raucy finishing elements. Very good. I did not know that Buck Dich’s icon was from this beer until now. I’ll be gettin’ me sommora this tomorrow, I’ll tell ya what, lookie here (that’s Southern speak for those who don’t know).

Scent of chocolate and fruit when poured. Head lasts forever. Does not burn your throat at all when you drink it quickly. Paid 2.75 for a 16.9 oz. bottle of this. Not bad at all. One bottle got me buzzed because it’s so easy to put down.

Es una buena cerveza de trigo. Por supuesto alemana. Mejor que loa normal. Lo que no entiendo mucho es porque tiene la misma gradacion alcoholica que la que no es doble

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2005
Cloudy brown with a surprisingly white head for such a dark colored beer. Tart and yeasty in aroma with some smoke and leather. The chocolate and banana in the aroma come together in a strange chemical like smell almost like spray paint or magic marker. That aroma comes through in the flavor also. Thin in body with some chalkiness.

Pailhead (6276) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2010 Bottle: The aroma consists of caramel, roasted malts, grain, and a hint of citrus. It pours a cloudy orangish-brown with a moderate off-white head that fades to a thin cap of foam. The flavor starts with caramel, roasted malt, and grain. The finish has light citrus and wheat notes, coffee, and the slightest hint of banana. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Not bad, but a little too much on the roasty and grainy side and not enough weizen flavors for my preferences.

beerseer (51) - Lewiston, Maine, USA - APR 24, 2005
(bottle) Pours a light walnut brown. Develops an immense, lasting, light-brown head and a deep, almost opaque mahogany hue (the color of a sunset through a sandstorm) in the glass. Aroma is yeasty and wheaty, with undertones of sweet fruit and slight hints of nuttiness and coffee. Overall, though, the flavor is watered-down, weak and disappointing after the inviting smell. Taste is initially a little sweet, then a touch doughy, before finishing with a burst of sweetness that is somewhat sickening. Palate is creamy and a tad watery; it fills the mouth and slides easily to the throat. Overall, it feels nice to drink this one, but the flavor could definitely be more diverse.

The pour is a cloudy wheat brown that I recollect as being slightly "gray". The nose was pleasant and along the lines of a wheaty bock. The front of this beer is superb as the mouthfeel is nice and the carbonation average but very smoothe. There’s a bit of a bite. For my taste it was odd to move from this sweet bock-ish beginning into the hefeweisen lemon/banana-pepper middle. It’s the "clove" part that bothers me the most. Also, I was disappointed in the "dirty" alt-beer finish. Overall, however, this beer mixes some good malt and wheat qualities and it is certainly smoothe textured.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2006 Bottle. Pourse brown with a nice beige head. The flavour is fruity ( maybe bananas and lemon??) and somewhat tart, but not too much of either. Really quaffable and enjoayble, i think it lives up to the expectations for a Dunkel. One interesting note is that everytime i had a sip of it the head seemed to recompose itself till you could see it in the bottom of the empty glass!!
