COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dunkel weisse dark wheat ale, all malt and unfiltered. A dark wheat ale featuring our own unique yeast and malted wheat. A special Bavarian yeast strain combined with select wheat malt deliviers unmistakeable clove and banana tones. The surprisingly light finish is a character of dark weissbeir, a style with roots back to the 1520s. A dunkel which is perfect for any season! To serve this brew perfectly, pour it down the side of the glass untill about a half inch is left. Gently swirl the bottle mixing what’s left. Pour the rest of the brew into the glass to produce a nice thick collar of foam and enjoy!

aroma of alcohol,fruity and spicy malts and yeast a hint of wheat in the background..odd dark brown cloudy appearance thru which no light gets through,cream colored head not much lacing..taste is thin and quite watery though,theres a slight hop tingle and otherwise a faint sweetness atop a white bread flavored blandness no aftertatse to speak of not very bad,but flavors could be more distinct and powerful

Pours a reddish copper with a good sized tan head mostly lasting. Lots of bubbles. Nose is caramel and malt. Average mouthfeel. Taste is sour mash, malt and carmel with a somewhat acidic, alcoholic and bitter end note. Only an OK beer. Would recommend other ales before this one.

BigBeer45 (1260) - Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2010
This beer has a hazy & cloudy dark red-brown pour with a one to two finger high off-white bubbled head, the head was not as big as some better Dunkelweizens I have tried but ok in size, left some spots of lacing on the side of the glass, and there was a layer of dark sediment in the bottle, there were aromas of wheat, bread, wheat and bread sweetness with some banana fruit like esters, and flavors of bread and grain, some wheat, with light banana to, there is a good amount of sweetness at the start of drink and ends somewhat dry, there is a little citrus like sourness at the finish, mouth feel is less than medium with a creamy feel, a nice drink, a little better than what I expected.

BillWyce (729) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Poured hazy orange-brown with a small white head. Aroma was mostly of banana with a slight sour note mixed in. Palate was smooth and slightly fizzy. Flavor was of banana, with a note of clove underneath. Nothing special, but certainly not bad either. In fact, better than I expected it to be.

Ibrew2or3 (6998) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Pours semi opaque amber with quick tan head. The meek aroma offers up only cherry fruit esteriness, faint grains and little else. The taste has plenty of interest. I get sweet over ripe cherry along with tart tannin cherry skins. It picks up a touch of cranberry to midway and then heads down to the finish with the addition of moldy dark fruit funkiness, grainy malts, cold moldy earthiness and then water thin body opening up lingering notes of cherry to cranberry juice. I love the funk, mold earthiness going on here but the fruitiness is a bit bright. Not sure how all that cherry and cranberry fits into the style. Interesting.

I had this beer at Orange County Brew Ha Ha in Irvine, CA. This one surprised me. It was a lot better than I’d expect from Michelob. Nice aroma, good malts.

arminjewell (6294) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Pours deep brown with white head, aroma is some nuts, banana, and dark malt. Taste is pretty weak, a bit of banana yeast and dark malt leads to a watery finish. Not bad.

Pours a hazy brownish orange. Small off white head. Smells of pears, apricots, and malts. Tastes of apricots and malts. A bit sweet. Tasty.

I’ve enjoyed trying the various styles Michelob has been producing, some are great examples of the given style, while others seem like Americanized impostors. This dunkel weisse was pleasantly enjoyable. It poured a light caramel color with an off-white creamy head. Clove yeast smell, thin and light body, with a lightly sweetened raisin taste. Great beer for the price point.

Dunkelweizen is my favorite style, and I really like this one! Pours out a nice hazy reddish light brown with a good creamy tan head. Aroma is very good. Flavor is right up there with the better wheat beers I have had. Roasty malts, slight coffee. Good banana and clove. Not overly thin or too sweet. Finishes clean. I should have gotten the entire six pack instead of a single bottle.
