At the brewery. Good color and decent flavor. Lots of wheat and a roasted finish. Decent flavor. Certainly not the best dunkleweisse but rather good.

Tap at Piece. Unfiltered chunky amber-brown body. Pleasant banana clove tones. Classic brewpub example, true to style. Rides the yeast. Medium bodied. OK.

A hazed copper amber ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, loads of banana cake, cloves, eugenol, dark fruits, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity banana malt with cloves, berries, coriander, curacao, nice. On tap at brewery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours from the growler a medium amber/brown body, moderately hazed, with an off-white head.
Smell: Malty notes of chocolate, caramel, and toast followed fast by a salvo of cloves, with soft fruity tones closing it out.
Taste: Darkened grains glazed with sweetish caramel and a thin coating of chocolate. Growing phenolic clove accent. Fruity touches of raisins, apple, and ’nanas. Light herbal hops, medium-low bitterness. For a moment it seems like a late-breaking kick of malts my be pending, but, it remains earthy, drying into the finish with cloves and pepper-dusted banana slices at the tail end.
Mouthfeel: Just a hair over medium-bodied and just a bit above medium carbonation.
Overall: A very solid dunkelweizen.

23 oz at piece brewery. Looks right on point- murky brown fading lighter towards the bottom. Heavy banana smell. Nice malt flavor and strong banana. Mixes together extremely well. Excellent beer. Don’t see too many American offering like this, especially this well done. Stickey flavorful, sweet but not overwhelming.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2013 Free beer won from Tooch4321 during free beer week. 64 oz. screw cap growler poured into a weizen glass. Pours dark brown with light brown highlights. Taste is clove, rich chocolate, and some banana. Low carbonation and estery aroma. If you get this in a growler, make sure you gently turn the growler upside down to redistribute the yeast.

Half gallon growler shared by weihenweizen. Pours a semi hazy brown, no head. Plenty of banana and spice, but the banana is a little too hefty. Nicely balanced taste, but again, too much banana in this one.
