Very good beer. Nice full head taste is sweet and wheaty. A slight watery flavor, but still a great beer.

Dark orange in the light, maple leaf brown in the dark. Tons of carbonation; a still, unwavering head at the top. The aroma is candi sugars; a tart yeast component. No banana, but some juicy citruses, like orange rind and tangerine. Homemade bread in the upper nasal cavity. Hint of sugary bubblegum. A definite cellar funk. A handful of purple concord grapes. Flavor is earthy yeast, with more pink bubblegum. A tart stone fruit on the back of the tongue: a plum, methinks. Slight cherry cough drop. Slight grassy complexion, but quickly gives way to a darker berry. Feels bubbly and thick and effervescent. This is a wonderful gateway beer, especially for a red wine drinker. It’s very pleasant, and not incredibly challenging. The yeast-tart balance is like a slow-dance.

From bottle: Pours a caramel brown color with a small off white head. Smells of wheat, banana, clove, yeast and dark malts. Tastes of Wheat and dark malts with a hint of clove and banana. The malts taste of caramel and raisins. Highly carbontated mouthfeel. Easy to drink

Bottle at home. Pours hazy brown with big fizzy head and decent lacing. Nose is Very light malt and caramel. Tastes of wheat, caramel, molasses, light banana, and a stale bread. Thin palate. But overall it approves with warming.

Rated based on notes taken 20 Dec 2011 -- This is a very good Dunkel. In my opinion a classic and perfect example of the style. Would drink over and over again.
