COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Celebrate the harvest with Mayflower Autumn Wheat Ale. This dark wheat beer combines the fruity aroma and bready character of traditional wheat beers with the malty richness of dark ales. The result is a flavorful and medium-bodied beer that is just right for the crisp days of autumn.

interesting take on a dunkelweizen, this adds a little fruity aroma from the hops that give it a little zing that makes it unique. very enjoyable.

Faint roasted smell, ruby pour with some tan head. Burnt caramel sweetness with wheat bread. Nice bitter finish.

From tap at Jacob Wirth. Pours hazy dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is roastred malty, light spiced and breadish. Roasted and dark malty flavoured. Bitter and roasted finish.

Dark clear brown color with a roast malt aroma. Zesty with a good dose of bitterness. The bitter aftertaste lingers which hindered me from really enjoying this one.

jkwood04 (3408) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 8, 2011
12oz bottle in a weizen glass. Pours transparent brown with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of nutty and light caramel malts, a little wheat, and some floral hops. Nothing really sticks out, but the malts are strong on the finish. Average texture. A decent beer.

A: The beer pours a dark amber/brown color with a big tan head. S: The nose has a mild roast note with a nice hint of banana. There is some malt sweetness in the form of bread and toast. There might even be some mild clove along with a hint of chocolate. T: Minimal banana flavor followed by lots of roast and toasted malt. Sweet bread malt flavors with a mild sweetness of chocolate. There is a little bit of bitterness, especially as the beer sits for a moment. M: Medium in body with medium carbonation. O: A pretty enjoyable beer, I thought. Though, I would have preferred more of a traditional dunkelweizen.

12oz Bottle, poured at RIFT Dunkelweizen calibration tastings. By itself, this isnít a bad beer. Itís roasty, toasty, complex and drinkable. As a Dunkelweizen, itís a pretty good filtered Brown Porter. Goodness itís dark and toasted and thereís very little sign of either wheat or german yeast. I understand the choice, itís just hard to put it up against other examples of the style. So, I think I wonít. Iíll leave it as a comforting, brown, toasty fall beer that works really well for what it wants to be.

annunz123 (809) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Kind of an odd aroma, with roasted malt, nut, and maybe some cheese. Tastes like liquid carrot cake, with lots of bread, molasses, and spice. Very creamy mouthfeel. Really good.

Pours a reddish black with a 1 finger head that slowly fades to a thin film on the surface of the beer. Smells of roasted malts and molasses. Taste is kinda not what I was expecting to be honest. Iíve had roasted malts before but this is REALLY roasted. I taste molasses, dark chocolate and hops. Overall though a good beer.

Bottled. Poured rich medium garnet with a creamy, sticky beige head.. looked great in the glass! The aroma picked up sweet bready and molasses notes, with what seemed like a moderate funky infection laced throughout (somewhat sour, with some fruit and some foot present).. in its present state, I wouldnít peg it as a dunkelweizen, but it was intriguing. The flavor found bread, molasses, and a kiss of chocolate on the mostly dry core.. tart wheat and a touch of medicinal sourness around, and that character complemented well.. more fruity on the finish. Medium-bodied at most on the palate.. the malts were at odds with the wheat and other sourness at times, but it had a decent flow for the most part. In the end, I donít know if it was actually infected.
