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.

Poured into a tasting glass from the tap. This was the first Dunkelweizen that I have ever had and now I am a huge fan. I had this at the Sam Adams brewery open house. I liked the smokieness to it but needed a bit more of it to really describe this brew. This needs to be added to the Brewmaster collection

Sample B, 2007
This is one of those beers you open and aren’t sure if it is even going to be drinkable. But a two year old dunkelweizen in this case is not only drinkable it’s enjoyable. Light brown. Thin head. Molasses nose with nuttiness. Rich and chewy almost like a bock. Sweet, malty with good toffee notes, light nuts. The body still has some vibrancy. I’m not sure what this was like when fresh, but I do like where it’s at now.

2007 "Sample B" bottle shared by Daknole. Pours cloudy brown with scant tan head. Rich malty aroma with lots of raisins, dates, other dark dried fruit, molasses, and the crust of rum cake. Medium carbonation, good palate. Fruit cakey malts balanced by a nice dryness. Like an old actress can still perceive its heyday shine, which impresses. Clean finish is a little thin but the beer has stood the test of time exceptionally well.

sample bottle from aplusbreaks. Brown pour with a medium tan head. A very malty nose with hints of caramel and some yeast. The nose has held up well considering the age of the bottle. The flavor is really pretty good. I would imagine this was very good when fresh. Very malty and some fruit notes with some faint spices. Nice.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2012 Bouteille achetée au Vermont, Merci Patrick.Bière brune avec une mousse durable. Le nez est en plein dans le profil aromatique d’une weizen avec des épices, du clou de girofle, un nez marqué par la levure. La bouche est agréable, il y a du chocolat, des épices, des bananes et du clou. Classique !! Bue aussi sous l’appellation Dark Wheat.

Sample bottle. Pours brown with a tannish head. Smells of bananas, cloves, some bubblegum, some caramel, touches of chocolate. Taste repeats the nose and is also accompanied by an earthy finish with some spiciness at the end. Not bad.

Compared to the Irish Ale which was the other in the pub comparison, this was quite good. I thought it had decent wheat character with nice yeasty notes, some banana and spice and a hint of dark malts. I’d buy this one, the Irish red no way..

Tasted 10/24/07. 12oz bottle. SAMPLE B. Dark brown with a ruby tint. Lacing off-white head. Yeasty floral peppery nose. Notes of toffee and bananas. Light to medium bodied with a smokey roasted flavor. Wheaty yet off-putting. Odd sulphorous note. Smokey bready flavor. Tingling and mildly dry. Didn’t care for this one too much.

"Sample B" provided by a rep for Sam Adams. Dark brown beer with a thick tan head. Lots of lacing. Banana bread aroma and flavor with some roasted malt and a hint of chocolate. Lively carbonation. Nice

Perhaps the darkest weizen I have seen. Aroma is big and malty with some spice. Aroma is better than the flavor which was not substantial. Body was thin as well.
