COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dunkelweizen translates into "dark wheat" and the beer is a darker version of the Bavarian wheat beers of the 15th century. Dark amber brown in color, this unfiltered ale is brewed with traditional Bavarian yeast, which imparts a wide spectrum of flavors and aromas from spicy clove and nutmeg to tropical fruit and banana. The result is a beer that is complex and flavorful, medium-bodied with a crisp finish.

Bottle. Pours dark with a healthy head. Aromas just like a wheat beer but it seems a bit ’burnt’. Finishes surprisingly easy.

It pours a deep dark brown and leaves the same color body with some amber notes along the edges of the glass. A large one inch foamy white head appears and lasts for a good two minutes. The smell has some wheat and banana up front with a bit of honey in the background. The taste is basically the same with some added spice. The palate is about a medium body with a slight harshness of carbonation. Overall, this is a good beer I’d come back to.

Aroma of bananas. Tastes of wheat and malt. Pleasant, but nothing spectacular. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Metalchopz (2400) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2012
Part of their "Harvest Collection" 12-pack, brought back from the States by my GF. Pours a slightly hazy, dark amber colour, with a creamy off-white head, decent retention and great lacing. Sweet caramel nose at first, but becomes bread-like, with malt aromas, hints of bananas and nuts. Eventually, coffee comes out with the roasted malt. Medium-bodied, with a little stick. The taste is milder, like most Sam Adams, with wheat, notes of citrus and cloves. An average malty brew with some darker wheat.

Aroma is pretty stinky with feet and banana. Mouth is medium bodied. Taste is little off. Banana and sugar dominate, but I’m not crazy about it. A little wheat in there too. Not overly clean.

355ml bottle. Hazy, light root beer colour, moderate off white head. Light, fruity aroma, mostly banana and pineapple. Taste is banana, clove, a little pineapple tartness. Very crisp mouthfeel, very easy to drink. Overall, goes down super smooth and fast.

Brown pour with a light tan head. Has a nice banana and clove aroma. Great flavor, banana bread with a nice spiced malt finish, better than I thought it would be. This is a great fall beer.
