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!

Hazy amber. Light footy character. Bland, with light wheat notes. Candyish finish. Not sure where this is going, really.

(12oz. bottle, courtesy of Swalden 28) Pours a hazy amber-brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma of grain, wheat, caramel, toasted grain, coconut, and chocolate. Flavor of caramel malt, burnt brown sugar, banana, wheat, marzipan, and toasted grain with a light coin-like aftertaste.

Tmoney99 (10087) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Bottle from Kroger. Poured a clear orange/brown color with a large off-white head that was mostly lasting and produced fair lacing. Good banana and bubblegum aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Good hefe sweet flavor with an average sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable brew.

daknole (8540) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Tasting at Brewtopia. I have had this before, but never rated it. Amber pour. Small whitish head. Aroma is wheaty and maybe some banana and fruity notes are barely noticeable. Flavor is, as expected, weak and poor.

hopscotch (8539) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle… First Annual Treasure Coast Beer Festival 2008… Murky, awful-looking mixture… deep, dark amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Perfumy, fruity nose with all those Bavarian yeast-invoked esters and phenols found in hefes that I just don’t really like much – also, some chocolate and bubblegum. Light to medium-bodied with prickly carbonation. Pretty close to perfectly-balanced… leans a just a whisker toward the sweet side. Finishes acerbic and dry.

When I saw this for 5.50 a sixer I figure, what the hell and picked it up. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. Deep brown-amber beer with a thick white head. Aroma is pretty solid... soft banana and clove over a rich sweet toasted wheat aroma. A touch of toffee and caramel with a bit of marshmallow. Softly smoky phenolics as well. The body is a little bit light, but overall, I’ve got no complaints. If this was served in a different bottle, it would be substantially higher.

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2008
12 ounce bottle. Pours a medium brown color with a large head, not so great head retention and specks of lacing. Very bready aroma with some spicy notes. Taste is bready, with light spice notes, bitter hops and barely some fruity notes in the finish. Medium bodied.
