This poured a somewhat murky medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma was os slightly tart dark fruit, some metal, and some toasted malt. Flavor was a bit strange fomr what I was expecting from a dunkel, a bit of a tangy tartness, but not sour, a bit roasted and fruity too. Interesting.

Let this one warm a bit. Deep brown with lacing head. Aroma is massive sweet malt caramel and light clove. Flavor is also sweet caramel with a good wheat character and hints of molasses well as a banana aftertaste in the finish, balances the initial sweet impression. A touch of apple as well. Mildly spicy and clovey, just a hint of clove with a dry and refreshing finish that is medium in duration. A nice Dunkleweizen

Pours a dark dark brown with creamy head. Aroma is of chocolate and clove. First thing you notice when you taste is how light and fizzy the mouthfeel it. Taste initially is sour apple mixed with carmel and clove. Lots of interesting flavor that ends pretty dry. The brewery is 5 minutes from me!!
