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!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a dark orange-brown color with a medium thin beige head that diminishes steadily. Top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Aroma of bananas and bready malt. Medium body with flavors of toasted malt, caramel and wheat. More bananas in the flavor too. The finish is fruity and wheaty and there is sweet clove that lingers a bit. Decent overall.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Spectacularly well-constructed brewpub dunkelweizen, though not approaching the greatness of their Hefe.
Not all that pretty dark brown. Strongly estery nose loaded with banana purée, but also grainy toast, woodsy grapes, earth cherries. Quite fruity in the genre and not as roasty as I would have thought, more dust than actual roast flavours from the creative yeast strain. Full-bodied.
Feels less clean than the regular hefe, more powdery, more wet, dustier. Almost too carbonated, biting. The head departs far quicklier than the hefe’s.
