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.

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.

Not to knock this particular beer but I don’t think I like this style. Got it in a sampler pack and only drank 1 of 2. Had a sour taste.
