3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Less aromatic than many German Dunkelweizens the label writes a rustic cheque the nose can’t cash. The beer still does have classic Dunkelweizen character. Sweet malt notes of caramel, mocha, and chocolate. The malted wheat shines through with notes of orange creamsicle, lemon curd, and a blossoming wet earth. Mild alcohol, a fair mousse with a slightly soapy feel, and a sweet yet bitter and salty finish make this beer, if not memorable, easily enjoyable.

Mahogany medium bodied wheat and caramel bready Dunkelweizen. If you told me it was brewed by an old German brewery I’d believe it. Very drinkable session beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle… Pours mostly clear and brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The bouquet is biscuity and nutty with undertones of caramel and chocolate – this all adds up to a French toast-like quality. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is malty and rich. Not overly sweet. Toasty, caramely and lightly chocolaty. Finishes malty and hearty with a kiss of toffee. Doesn’t really resemble a dunkelweizen. Probably why I like it so much.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a hazy dark brown color with almost no head. Aroma has lots of milk chocolate and toffee. Taste has a good amount of roasted flavors with sweet chocolate. Some slightly fruity notes as well. A tiny bit of wheat flavors, but not a lot. A bit nutty and creamy with vanilla in the finish. Overall very nice.

Bottle. Deep brown, cloudy, pours with a thick head that disappeared pretty quickly. Caramel, chocolate malt aroma, smooth with carbonation appearing more in the finish. Overall a pretty decent beer in this style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle from Table and Vine, West Springfield, MA. Lightly hazy Brown in color. Label has best before Aug, notch. A tab past prime… Small, light white head. Nose is toasted malt. Flavor has a weak wheat character, along with some apple sweetness and ripe fruit. Some caramel rounds out the flavors. Bit thin on the palate. My overall impression is; it’s a drinkable brew but on the lower end of the style. Not bad and doesn’t have any major flaws…. I’m going to have to find a fresher bottle. Wheat beers need to be fresh, this bottle was a bit past its prime.
