2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of yeast, candy sugar, bananas, and spices. Flavors of dark malts, fruits, brown sugar, and wheat. A tad cloying and a touch sour at the finish. Mouthfeel is thin and not at all refreshing. This doesnít really work for me.

Feh...itís a decent shot at the dtyle by A-G, but it doesnít hit the bullseye, as the brew is watery and weak, especially in the traditional dunkelweisse esters and flavor complexity.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle; poured a caramel/amber colro with an average off white head. Aroma was subdued; banana, caramel, wheat; a little bit something off about it, but still ok. Pretty thin, and flavor was just ok. Not really a depth of flavors. Pretty sweet, banana, fruit, yeast; rather flat finish, but the after taste was enjoyable. Gotta be one of their better offerings, but overall it was a bit below average.

pours yellow-red, nose of banana and clove same palate, very bitter aftertaste, one would think that with the technology, experience, and money of inbev, they could definately and would get this right, sad excuse to sell to a broader market, ultimately not worth a second try by me!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle at a friendís house. Not sure where he got it. I was in the St. Louis area, and Iím sure itís widely available there and most other markets. Pours a clear brown color with a finger-thick beige head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of caramel malts, banana, wheat, yeast, and clove. Flavor follows suit faithfully, with some nuttiness and brown sugar. Light-bodied, with mild carbonation. Iím not a huge fan of this overall, and Iíve had some good dunkelweizens in the past, but I have to say itís good for an A-B product.

This is Michelob? Bought a 12-pack of their sampler and this was a pleasant surpise. Poured a deep dark caramel color with a nice thick head. Malty aroma with a smooth mouthfeel. Caramel, yeast, wheat, malt flavors all come through. Nice beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I completely underestimated this beer. Very nice banana and clove aroma, almost shocking (AB product). Very smooth the yeast stands out almost as much in taste as it does in aroma. The palate is a little thin, but is medium bodied and has a nice yeast kick in that wraps up the finish. Best AB product I have ever had!

Bottle poured into a frosted glass: Yeast and clove nose, with banana notes underneath. Cloudy copper, headless. Light body. Flavor is weak clove. Slightly plastic finish. Needs more flavor.

Nice hint of cloves with a decent aftertaste. Label claimed there was also a hint of banana but try as I might, I couldnít taste or smell banana (just as well!). This was a pretty good beer for a cold winterís evening but not one Iíd want to drink often.

Refrigerated bottle. Watery body and some head. Pours a dark brown. Taste is dark malts some sour clove and banana. Not a big fan, but a fair attempt at the style.
