3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml brown bottle. Brown pour, long lasting beige head. Lots of creamy lace. Nose has elements of chcoolate malt, roasted malt and cloves/spice. Taste has chocolate, roast and nut notes, some lemony notes. Cocoa in the finish, yeasty, some bitterness. Body a bit light, carbonation ok. Interesting twist on a dunkleweizen, but doesn’t hold my interest for the whole bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark brown color with amber shades, and creamy head. Mild aroma mature banana. Smooth mouthfeel, and good body strength; mellow caramel flavor, dominating, with mild wheat character, moderate banana esters and light peppery notes. The warming alcohol is comforting.
Well brewed, balanced, clean enough for the style, and pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out bananas, dry cocoa powder, burnt malt and wheat. Flavour is very similar, bringing out a mix of all these styles, including banana, clove, cocoa and roast. Very well-balanced, coming across like a typical well-made dunkelweizen. Great stuff.
