COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This winter wheat beer uses dark malting to provide subtle toasty notes. We then single-hop and dry-hop this beer with Citra hops from our friend Bradís farm. Interesting pineapple notes from the Citra hop provide a stark contrast to the toasty notes in the body. An engaging and sessionable Winter Seasonal. ABV: 5% IBUs: 62

This beer is a mistake. Nothing like a Dunkelweizen. Itís more like a Dunkel-lPA-zen. Fake tasting hop extract like. The flavor and style do not match at all. Itís like buying a Belgium sour and opening it and it tastes like a Corona. If I tasted this blind folded I would think it was brewed by Laugunitas.

maxwelldeux (3812) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very dark amber color with very little head. Very hoppy nose on this, which was a very pleasant surprise. Taste is a little hoppy, but a very easy drink.

TheBeerGod (5350) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle. Copper pour with a short, foamy tan head. Strong hoppy aroma with lots of citrus and tropical fruits atop toasted malt and caramel. Taste is big citrus fruit, tropical fruit, floral hops, caramel, toasted malt, light grains and hints of toffee. Body is medium and slick with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more citrus fruit, tropical fruit notes, floral hops, caramel and toasted grains.

DiarmaidBHK (3583) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle from Greenlife grocery. Pours brown with a thick khaki head. Slight note of banana on the nose. Lots of Hoppiness on the tongue with a roasted malt thing. Finishes with a hint of bitterness. Echoing other sentiments I find this beer not sessionable and a bit weird.

Pours a dark brown color. Smell is hops and malts. Taste is hops and bitter up front, than some malts kicking in, a touch of wheat. Overall an interesting and enjoyable beer.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2012 Rerate 11/03/2012 - on tap at Cherry Tree in Brooklyn by myself waiting for Erica to do whatever girls do when they get ready for an hour. Not changing the score, seems to be pretty consistent from bottle to tap, but Iíll just add that thereís a grainy-bitter hop profile that comes through more on tap. 4/8/12 - 12oz bottle from variety pack bought in Congers. Drank on Easter from lager glass. Pour is dark gold with pretty big off-white head. Aroma is definitely the highlight with this one. Itís very fresh-smelling, even in such a wide-mouthed glass. Fresh hops and malts on the nose - canít get more granular than that. Taste is not quite as satisfying, but definitely decent. Some earthiness/spice in there and a fair bit of hops, which is a relief for a winter beer (they usually bore me with the spice/vegetable flavors). Pretty good actually, but not great.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 15, 2012
A dunkelweizen- had it pegged for a old ale based on the bottle. It has the earthy malt aroma that shows up consistently in Shipyardís family tree, also decent hop notes and banana from the wheat. Fully retained, not explicable head laces out the glass. Light brown, looks like an amber. Tastes of semi-sweet dirtiness, while the wheatís main contribution is to give the beer a gritty feel. Not really a sessionable style, as its pretty dense and filling. Oh well nobodyís perfect.

Drake (9012) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear brown color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of caramel malts, burnt sugar and citrus hops. The taste is citrus hops, earth, toffee, burnt notes. Medium bodied. A little weird.

On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a clear caramel hued amber with a medium to large beiged yellow head. Sweet caramel and toast on the nose. Loads of caramel and a ton of grain. Sweet grain into a soft bitterness on the finish.

A nice package, i do my best to support small breweries but would much rather drink a winter ale from sam adams, mostly hoppy, with no sweet taste, goes down smooth but is mostly forgettable
