(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).

Odd, I thought this tasted very similar to the hefe. Medium sized light tan fluffy head sits atop a dark caramel colored body. Nose is bananas and clove. Taste is banana creme pie with whipped creme and caramel drizzle. Mouthfeel feels a bit thin but the finish has a medium length.

Nice, banana, wheat aroma. Dark, reddish orange with no head. Very nice color. Excellent Dunkel weiss as is reflected in the style percentile. I can’t remember having a better Dunkel Weiss in Germany, and as such Jonathan Cutler did an outstanding job crafting this brew. Very nice beer.

[Tap] Pours a ruddy brown color with a large light brown head. Aroma of sweet caramel, banana, vanilla and yeast. The flavor profile is heavily spiced up front, with nutmeg and clove notes primarily. Bubblegum, cocoa powder, strong banana, wheat malts and molasses round out the taste. Creamy mouthfeel, with fine carbontion bubbles. Rich palate and great balance make this beer really special. Highly recommended!

Very nicely done hefe...Huge aromas wafting out of my pint...bubblegum, banan, clove...Nice rich smooth chewy wheat texture (They got this one down just about right) Even bigger flavors of banana/cloves/bread dough/ cut grass/ pepper/ and citrus (orange and lemon) hops.

On tap @ Piece. Murky brown mixed with crimson coloration. Sweetness in the nose, wheaty, whiffs of banana and spice. Soft and airy. Much fruit in the flavor, banana, some citrus and clove, some caramel from the malt, and it’s all very smooth and flavorful.

How I forgot to rate this earlier, I don’t know. Pours a dark brown with an off white head. Nice aroma of banana and clove. The much better half of light and curvy. This beer packs a lot more flavor. Nice caramel, malt, banana, and clove flavor. Very solid, give it a try.

Tried a quick sample of this one. Spicy banana-wheat with decent body and smooth finish. I’m not a big wheat guy, but this one is tasty and full of flavor.
