3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dunkels.... sigh.... will this one win me over? Dumped out a beautiful copper colour with a good sized head that simmers down to a fluffy light tan head with fine slippery lacing. Sweet attentive banana mixed in with some cloves, touch of earth... actually the banana thing is very close to banana milk - not bad! The taste follows through with mild banana milder spice and a slight tartness that works very well. Light orange, wheat, choco (in a way), something something. Very smooth with the creamy carbonation effect, very soft mouth feel and a light lemony tartness. Good soft banana and a bit of bread on the finish. I dig. Super easy to pound back.

Pours a dark brown with a big offwhite head.
Smells of cloves, caramel, yeast and malt.
Tastes of a heavy sweetness with some fruitiness, and caramel.
Medium to light body. Creamy texture, somewhat "round".
Finishes slightly cloyingly.

Bottle. Cloudy medium nut brown colour, with a rocky tan-tinted head that sits like a comfy pillow on top and reduces slowly to a whispy clingy ring. Aroma is classic dunkelweizen, with lovely caramelized banana and spices. Creamy mouthfeel, flavours of cooked banana, lively spices and hints of raisin sweetness. Instantly brought me back to our Oktoberfest trip this past fall. Lovely.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A really nice dunkel overall. The pour is a dark brown with a massive yellow head. The nose has a moderate German yeast, nice caramel notes with some dark fruits and spice. The taste is sweet and nicely malted with no astringency and light spice. A good German yeast taste. Overall, a goo and drinkable dunkel!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home, out of my Maudite glass; shared with Cole. Pours cloudy deep brown-mahogany. 2-finger deep cream coloured head, very persistent, very nice lacing. A rare 5 for appearance. Nose is very tart; something savory/earthy here, almost cheesy. That doesnít seem right....Some notes of rye bread, banana, wheat; Flavours are typical for a Dunkelweizen, with banana, sweet swheat and pumpernickel notes, but this seems very light on flavour, quite thin and really not terribly exciting at all. The "cheesy" note from the aroma doesnít transfer through at least. This is just really underwhelming. Like Dunkelweizen-lite.

Dark amber with tan, quickly disappearing head. Yeasty body, some very light spiciness and earthy bits. Not very impressive, like the light bitter taste. Very drinkable though and enough flavour to keep interesting throughout the half liter. Would have liked a more pronounced head and alcoholic and sweetness.
