3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at The Livery; probably the pourest of the beers that I had at this solid brewery in Benton Harbor. Found it to not be a great represenation of the style. Mouthfeel was a bit on the light side. As previous rater mentioned, not much of a wheat presence.

This poured an amber apperance with a moderate head. The aroma is toffee, caramel, and bananas. The flavor is slighty spicy with some pepper. I usually hate that but I will let it slide this damn time! Also some caramel, bananas, and vanilla. A nice beer right here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hand-bottle from a growler thanks to BBB63: Pours a transparent copper amber with ruby hues and a spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of semi-sweet biscuity dark German malts with some black pepper and bready yeast. Body starts lightly doughy and toasty malty sweet with some citrusy hops before a drier finish. An authentic and quite drinkable dunkel-weizen.

Brown in color with a thin white head this had aromas of chocolate covered bananas, yeast, rock candy and spice. The palate was long and rich with the flavors from the nose following through the finish ending with spices.

Thanks a million, BBB63, for the growler!
Appearance: Pours a clearish brown body topped by a small, wispy white head.
Smell: Immensely strong-scented with aroma jam-packed with malted wheat, bananas, and fresh-ground cloves.
Taste: Toasted wheat malt and banana juice with a heavy-handed dose of clove spiciness. A bit of light brown sugar. Faint bitterness. Tangy, spicy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Lightly carbonated.
Drinkability: A very respectable dunkleweizen.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2008 On da bus going to the MBG Winter Fest: Muddy brown with a minimal head and little lace. The aroma is highly phenolic and yeasty with notes of banana, clove, pepper, bubblegum, walnut, roasted malt, and a hint of herbal mint. The taste starts fruity and grassy over a layer of roasted malts. The middle displays wheat and darker roasted malts. Finished lightly spiced and even a touch smoky. The mouth feel is lively and refreshing, dry clean finish. A solid example of the style.
