Meh a pretty bannany offering. GB makes much better Dunkels and even contract on for Trader Joes that is better.

Pours a cloudy light brown with a big full retentive light tan head. Banana and clove aroma. Taste is smooth sweet barley and wheat malt, caramel, fruity with mild spices and virtually no hop bitterness. Nice Bavarian weizen.

This was a nice, flavorful beer with some complexity that you wouldn’t expect from a TJ’s beer for 6.49/6-pack. The unfiltered nature mixed with the toasted malt gives the beer a nice mouth feel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy amber with a thin white-tan head. Nose is of caramel. Mouthfeel is fully carbonated and fairly creamy. Taste is grains, caramel, yeast with a slight hop note on the finish. An enjoyable beer that pairs well with most deli sandwiches, cheese or nuts.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Trader Joe’s in Eastlake: Created a thin layer of patchy foamed head where as the liquid was a glowing tea brown that seemed to glow while also having a hazy appearance. In the nose, there is a scent of banana, clove, or bubblegum that is smells of authentic German yeast that actually makes me glad I had bought this instead of something else from Trader Joe’s. The flavor is mild with only a minimum amount of clove that doesn’t stack up compared to the aroma, but overall this is a decent dunkelweizen that holds up nicely for a full session of the 6 pack. However, the palate is a little harsh and carries a strong burn of alcohol.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from local Trader Joe’s with the Joseph’s Brau label. Yet another decent for a good price at $1.08 each. Cloudy amber in color with lasting thick head. Nose is authentic German yeast giving the nose of banana Esther’s, clove and hints of bubblegum. The flavor is mostly the same with the addition of caramel and brown sugar, perhaps toffee as well. Medium in body that may lean on the thin side. Overall no problem at all with a lightly creamy texture that lets this brew slide down my throat. Honestly if you don’t like this beer then you don’t like this German style. I enjoyed it and would purchase again.
