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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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+

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Monument Wine. As soon as the top was flipped there was a gusher. Once subsided, the beer poured brownish amber with a massive beige head that subsided rather quickly. There is a smoked malt flavor with a little yeasty banana. Not very impressive.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to Turdlington for the tick. So I reckon this used to be known as the "Schwarz Weisse," and if ever a name let you know a beer couldn’t decide about itself . . . Decent nose but thin as fuck, one-dimensional malts. Watery. Next!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ceramic flip top. My label says Schwarze Weisse, drink by Dec 10. Pours cola/tea colored, hazy when the yeast is poured in. Great head. Carbonation is a bit high and interferes with the taste. Not a ton of flavor: slight banana and spice, estery, fruity, maybe some bread crust. Dunkelweizens are tough to brew.
