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.

11/6/12. 12oz bottle from Publix. Barely hazy deep amber pour with a small khaki head that cuts in half and sticks in a small ring and laces in spotty sheets. Big banana and fruitiness in the aroma with touches of cream, caramel, and spice. The flavor shows a ton of banana, bubblegum, and fruit again with hints of spice, caramel, and metal. Not bad, actually.

Clove and bread crust, mild banana overtones. Clear copper, medium head. Banana, lemon, and walnut flavor, graham crackers. Nicely done, true to style. Flavorful, but a little too thin in the mouthfeel. Maybe just a bit too tart and citrusy as well.

Best before January 2013.
Appearance: The body is a clear burnt copper/brown with a thin tan head that has poor retention.
Aroma: Strong banana esters, reminds me of a banana laffy taffy, that’s it.
Taste: Light caramel on the intro to mid with the yeast picking up giving a banana flavor on the finish that lingers a second or two.
Palate: Medium bodied with very sparse carbonation.
Overall: This is just way too heavy on banana to enjoy fully, pass.

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 (1336) - 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 (3251) - 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 (4490) - 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.

Bottle. Amberish pour, slight haze, with an off white head. Over ripe fruit, banana, wheat, sweetness, and light spice. Decent.
