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.

Butters (3869) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Sampled at Lithy’s Septemberfest tasting. Pours a semi-hazy dull gold with fair light tan head. Sweet, banana, vanilla, dark wheat. With just a hint of medicinal note on the finish. Medium body. Pretty decent for style, just a little light in color.

heemer77 (5129) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Cloudy medium copper body with a light khaki and yellowish head. The head is dense and long lasting. Light banana esters in the nose along with some pleasant floral hints. There is also some peanut butter in the overall sweet smelling beer. The taste is initially bread crusts with some banana peels coming through later in the drink. There is also some woody tobacco that throws off the finish. The banana peels add up as you drink and it gets cloying. Too bad the taste doesn’t quite measure up the pleasing smell.

Amazing balance of flavors and drinkability in this dunkelweizen. Pours medium brown with a reasonably thick and creamy light tan head. Gorgeous beer. Nose is quite appetizing with a soft banana bread like aroma - banana with brown dessert spices. On the palate the banana bread comes through again with the malty component making its voice heard, with a medium to light body, and a gentle sweetness towards the finish. This is both incredibly drinkable and flavorful at the same time.

tgncc (2923) - Bellmore, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2009
The aroma is true to the style, fruity, wheat, grainy, spicy, some smoke. The appearance is a amber color, somewhat translucent, decent size white head. The flavor is spicy, grainy, wheat, dark fruit. The mouthfeel is medium, actually a little on the thin side. The finish is mild hop bittering, and spices like clove. Not bad, a decent dunkelweizen, but not exceptional. Actually, that can be said of a lot of Sam’s beers.

Bottle courtesy of blutt59. Clear orange appearance. Sweet smell with some heavy fruit. Dry bitter on the upfront but the finish is wetter than antisipated.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy caramel brown color with a lasting light tan head. Smells of wheat malt, grass, and straw. Tastes grainy, some wheat, lightly spiced, some rye, and some hops. Nicely balanced. Crispy body. Semi sweet aftertaste.
