2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a nice, hazy brown color. Big tan head. Lots of banana on the nose. The flavor is very boring. I was hoping for a lot more. Some yeast notes, a touch of wheat, but overall very tame and boring. I won’t buy again.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear golden brown with a fairly thick pale tan head that hangs around for a little. Aroma is malty with a strong overtone of fruit, mainly apple, and a hint of spice. Flavor is malty and a little fruity, not very well rounded but still acceptable. Texture is quite fizzy, just a bit on the watery side, but it leaves behind a decent tingle. Overall, not too shabby.

One of those fancy recappable bottles. Very heavy sudsy foam on the pour, stayed present quite a while. Thick sudsy residue left. Hazy amber, very attractive. Nose is subtle, yeasty, bubblegum, clove. Palate is full for the style, plenty of body, tastes of banana and tea. Dry. Very good.

500ml swing top bottle "Schwarze Weisse".From Capital Market, Salem.$3.49
Huge POP when the swing top is opened!!!
HUge white head is released into my glass..rakes a while for it to calm down..not a good sign! When i can actually now see the beer its a redish amber colur..head is large and thickly frothy.
Aroma is actually OK Bready, spicy yeasts,some barnyard and orange!
Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma..kinda ends very abruptly though.
Ok on the palate i actually liked the carbonation..very refeshing.
Overall not great but certainlly not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Deep caramel with slightly lighter hues around the edges, can’t see through, long lasting thick white head. Head shrank to a thin layer which left larger bubbles of lacing. Noticeable floating sediment-yeast. Aroma of light bubble gum (reminds me of $.05 bubble gum from the corner store). As it gets warmer, aroma of light clove is apparent. At the forefront is molasses with a light banana clove hiding in the background. This mouthfeel is a bit thin however, it gives you the ability to drink a lot of it if you choose. For me it is a middle – of – the –road Dunkelweizen but… still good. Drank on New Year’s Eve with LiteWait.

500 ml bottle from AirForceHops. Deep caramel with slightly lighter hues around the edges, can’t see through, long lasting thick white head. Head shrank to a thin layer which left larger bubbles of lacing. Noticiable floating sediment-yeast. Aroma of light bubble gum (reminds me of $.05 bubble gum from the corner store). As it gets warmer, aroma of light clove is apparent. Overall, the palate is of molasses. It reminds me of a warm molasses cookie. This is my first Dunkelweizen I’ve experienced and it’s one that I would drink again! A+
