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. Amber color with a small, white head. Your typical aromas for this style: banana, clove and bubble gum. Initial flavor of malts and cloves with a faint banana finish. Average carbonation with a thin body and texture. Nothing wrong with having a few of these.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a very dark rust-orange with a half finger of quickly dissipating head...and some big flakey chunks floating around. Aroma is mostly clove and nutmeg with a hint of cinnamon and some caramel malt. Taste is light bitter and light sweet. Lots of nutmeg and clove with caramel and a hint of tart granny smith apple. A good bit of banana in there too. Medium bodied with a thin yet sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a pretty long finish. Overall, not bad. I would be willing to drink this one again.

tnkw01 (1058) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle. Dark amber in color. Really nice head that slowly disappears leaving some lace. Taste is cloves and.....yes I believe that’s bananas. Aroma is too much clove.

SpringsLicker (3120) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Pours medium brown under a tall off-white head. Aroma of fresh banana bread. The flavor is slightly sweet, not quite as complex as the aroma. A bit on the thin side for a Dunkelweizen, but passable. The Michelob Dunkel Wiesse is a bit better IMO for the class of "Domestic Macro Dunkelwiezens"

Iphonephan (3058) - McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2012
From a bottle poured at home. Pours a deep, hazy amber with an off white head. Fruity banana aroma and flavor without much hop present. Crisp finish. A decent, sessionalbe beer.

JohnnyJ (4264) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Bottle. Amberish pour, slight haze, with an off white head. Over ripe fruit, banana, wheat, sweetness, and light spice. Decent.

DocLock (7731) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle from Harvest collection variety package. Pours hazy brown with off-khaki head. Nose is malt, spicy hops, earthy brown sugar, mild banana. Tastes malty, a bit sweet up front, with earthy nuts, spice, and banana. Pretty complex, and better than I expected.

mikesaum (596) - Newark, Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Pours a brownish color with a very thin tan head. Aroma is wheat and some fruity yeast a bit of spice. Flavor is quite fruity with some banana hints, a bit of clove, just a fuller tasting wheat, not real different from any other wheat.
