Pours a nutty brown with a huge tan foamy head. Almost no aroma. Taste is very watery. Maybe a hint of spice. Not much going on here....I lived on Dunks Ferry Rd. Near Neshaminy. Thought I’d try the beer because it caught my eye.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drank from a pint glass poured from a twenty two ounce bottle. Aromas of roasted malts and bread. Nice dark orangey amber color with nice thick fluffy beige head. Taste of bread and sweet malts with a hint of banannas and spices. First beer from Neshaminy Creek, nothing amazing but worth the try. As for being a dunkelweizen it is average.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 6-20-13-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance- Served a hazy chestnut-brown color brew with a tiny white head. The head fades fast to leave only a trace of white foam floating atop the brew.
Smell – Overall the aroma is rather light. The aroma is heaviest of a banana mixed with some caramel. Along with these smells is a little bit of wheat and some aromas of yeast.
Taste - The taste begins with a sweeter wheat dark brown bread flavor. There is a good level of caramel sweetness upfront mixed with a little bit of a more dark fruit sweetness. As the flavor moves forward, flavors of lighter fruits consisting of banana and orange come to the tongue. More yeastiness and some spice develop in the taste at this time with a bit of a cola flavor developing more toward the end. In the end a rather sweet and moderately spiced darker wheaty flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the medium to slightly chewier side with a carbonation level that is rather average.
Overall – Not a bad dunkel and quite easy drinking. Fairly tasty and well worth a try.

22oz bomber shared by JohnGonk after work. Poured a hazy amber color with a small creamy off white head. Aroma and taste are much the same. Bread crust, toasted grain, wheat, and banana. Taste has a slight sour bitterness in the finish.

Has a bitter after taste. Needs a bit more sweetness to it. I finished my pint, but will choose another NCBC brew to drink next.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is an unusual but interesting dunkelweizen unlike any Bavarian version I’ve tried. It has all of the usual fruity esters and caramel malts but the hops and roasted malt give it a burnt wood finish that lingers on the palate. I really like this interpretation of the style and have consumed several cases over the past year. It does not replace the original German dark wheat beers, but it is a welcome change of pace for someone like me who cherishes the dunkelweizen style.

Hazed brown pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma of brown sugar and wheat. Light brown sugar and wheat with a papery bitter. Light bodied and a bit fizzy for me.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear brown body under a small fizzy off-white head that faded quickly to a thin ring. The nose is pretty decent, some over-ripe bananas, a touch of chocolate, dark wheat, and a hint of bubblegum. The flavor falls a bit flat though, the malt backbone is a little too thin and it’s too heavily filtered, leaving it lacking in fullness and softness. The fruity esters are there, but light, mostly banana. I’m missing the heavy yeastiness that I think should be in a good Dunkelweizen. Fizzy prickly carbonation and a short slightly watery finish. Meh, wish this weren’t so filtered, and it could use a boost in the malt bill as well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow, 2/7/14
Aroma: Has an aroma of sweet malts, wheat, some fruit, and spice/clove
Appearance: Pours a murky brown-orangish color with a small head
Flavor: The taste leans quite sweet and wheaty as well, with some spice for balance
Palate: The body is medium, with an average carbonation, and a sticky finish
Thought this was a pretty solid dunkel. It certainly does what it sets out to do. Nice stuff.
