COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dunks Ferry Dunkelweizen – We stay with the German wheat beer theme for our Fall seasonal. Much like it’s Summertime brother, Dunks Ferry Dunkelweizen has a unique banana and spicy clove character but this time paired with a chewy, bready (dare we say banana bread) malt backbone. Again, we hop this German wheat beer with Hallertau and Tettnanger hops. 5.2% ABV.

Thanks zathrus13. Pours a dark cloudy brown with two fingers of creamy tan head. Nose is banana and raisin with some burnt toast. Smooth and creamy in the flavor with burnt toast and raisin. Medium full bodied.

Bottle. Copper. Spiced clove aroma. Bready taste with banana on the finish. No aftertaste. Starts out pretty good but, fades to thin and bland. Decent but, worth trying at $4 for a bomber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JAN 8, 2015
On tap @ KBF. Pours a cloudy dark chestnut brown color with a thin off-white head that settles quickly into a thin ring. Sweet banana aroma is dominant with hints of earthy grain and dark bread in the background. Taste is of sweet dark fruit and roasted malts with a nice burnt caramelized bitter finish. Medium bodied, a bit syrupy, with tight, moderate carbonation.

mansquito (4053) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2014
The Beer Store, Southampton 650ml: Pours a light murky brown with an off-white head. Aroma is light banana and roast. But really not much of it. Some bubblegum. This is too light to be a proper dunkelweizen in my opinion. Easy to drink, but I was not a huge fan.

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Undated large bottle.
Glass: Duvel tulip.
Appearance: Lightly hazed vibrant red/copper with a tall rocky tan head that’s dense and persistent.
Aroma: Caramel malts and banana are prominent with doughy malts and chalky yeast presence. Not bad but not great.
Taste: Much like the aroma, but less chalky and less doughy. Caramel and banana are balanced and well done. Mild clove finish that becomes prominent when lingering.
Palate: Medium bodied, highly carbonated.
Overall: Solid beer in a style that needs more attention. Not perfect, but good and worth buying.

ScoWRee (399) - Perkiomen, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2014
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.

N3lson1 (459) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2014
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.
