4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
