3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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"

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.

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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
