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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: a standard but superior Dunkel Weizen with a fruit salad bonus
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Almost clear amber with a small long lasting beige head.
In long: Less ripe bananas than a usually get in Dunkel Weizens, this one did have some ripe bananas but also a lot of fruit salad. As usual for the style, clove was present in the nose taste but at an acceptable low level. This is a very good beer. Medium body. Carbonation is very lively, this is a very lively Livery beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.
