3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap at the repeal prohibition festival at Schalfly. hazy brown with a soapy tan head. ripe banana on the nose with some spices, brown sugar and light chocolate. realy yeasty but not in a bad way. just more than expected. the flavors really didn’t match the nose well. lots of dirty yeast and banana flavors here with a huge long banana finish. a touch of smoke as well on the finish. not bad, but not what everybody was raving about a few months ago.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
underrated. this is a good wheat. it actually would have been a hefeweizen but it was a little bit dark. definitely didn’t have the maltiness i would demand in a dunkelweizen or a weizenbock. served in a 22oz glass, this was not particluarly dark or particularly opaque for a dunkelweiss (as stated by the brewer itself). i got a ton of bananas in the aroma and some cloves in the head itself. the flavor was largely fermented bananas, whatever that means. the body was pretty large, and it was overall pretty good. i wish i had a top heavy to put next to it, but i’d say this was pretty similar, but not quite up to par with its style as that interpretation. at the brewery it was simply called Dunkel Weiss. is this the same beer?

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at Schlafly’s Repeal of Prohibition Fest along with Beerdrenched. Pours cloudy brown / bronze with a tannish head. The aroma dark banana and vanilla with creme and meringue. Medium body with medium / sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with dark banana esters with a good amount of spice. The finish adds a bit smoke. A nice and unique dunkelweizen.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the tap, sampled at the Schlafly "Repeal Of Prohibition" festival in the commemorative glass. This was a really nice dunkelweizen, clove, banana and bubblegum, sweet malts, caramel and toffee, very easy drinkability, just another well made brew from the Piece.

(draught at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Festival) deep hazy brown with tan head. Yeast and malt aroma. Flavor is yeast, slightly sweet malt along with cloves and bananas. Good dunkelweizen (not normally a style I like).

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. The body was a very cloudy brown with a light khaki colored head. The aroma had some strong bananas. There were also hints of vanilla and peaches. The taste had more strong bananas, but I had trouble finidng much else to taste. A decent version of the style, but I would like to see a little more complexity.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Piece... gotta be one of (if not the best) dunkelweizens out there! Just a wonderful presentation of it... deep murky brown with a long-lasting cap of creamy off-white head... in a tall, curvy glass! Semi-sweet chocolate first graces the nose.. with light molasses, deep banana, peppery spices, and other dark sweetness immediately behind. Semi-sweet chocolate and other dark sugars at the flavor core.. darker banana and peppery spice notes eminate outward and an earthy bitterness emerges near the mildly warm finish. Enjoyed the stronger spicy accents... medium-bodied with boatloads of flavor.. smooth middle. World-class concoction here!

Draft. Aroma and flavor of bubblegum; some banana. Easy drinking and flavorful, if not complex. Some clove.
