3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Now branded as Boulder Bend. Very dark, hard to see through, hazy and gritty. Burnt grain and some smoke, little flat with the yeast character but it doesn’t take away either. Chocolate notes, grainy body, like a nice toasted cereal. Light bodied, nice dark roast, very good all around.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Color was amber-auburn. Aroma was bready and very wheaty; hint of earth/citrus. Flavor was surprisingly dominated by a toasted malt like presence. Wheaty and pretty dry overall. A bit too dry for the style for me.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy brown color with lacy head. Silky mouthfeel and astringent bready flavor. Taste would be helped tremendously if a good yeast was more prominent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
G.A.B.F. 2008: Hazy maroon with a creamy tan head. The aroma has some softly toasted malts and peppery esters. Creamy feel on the palate. Nice soft toasted notes in the flavor- almond and cinnamon, with surprisingly little yeast to speak of. Interesting and tasty. Doesn’t seem like a Dunkelweizen but it’s tasty.

Hazy brownish with characteristic German weizen yeast aroma with wheat, clove and banana as well as some chocolate in aroma and flavor. Moderately lively body. A good version of the style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, poured a perfet hazy dunkel weizen just begging to hit my lips. However, was a little too simple and mild for my tastes. Not really offering a strong showing of banana chocolate coffee or brown sugar that I find so appealing in others of the style. Also, the palate seemed a bit thin. Overall, not impressed, though enjoyable.

On tap at the Taphouse. Muddy brownish red color with great lacing. Aroma of roasted wheat and chocolate. A touch of dark fruity. Sweet chocolate roast, wheat, some mild dark fruit, carame/toffee etc. DIdn’t get the spice that I usually associate with a Dunkleweizen. Smooth drinking, nice carbonation.
