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.

Fresh bottle to a pint glass. Pours a hazy amber with a thin off white head and ok lacing. Aroma is wheat, brown sugar, banana, clove, and orange. Taste is banana, wheat, lemon peel, clove, and nutmeg. The finish is banana and clove. Mouthfeel is thin and drinkable. I couldn’t have more than 2 however, the banana is almost overpowering.

DCLawyer (2685) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Deep copper color. Aroma is over-ripe bananas and oatmeal. Taste is shockingly bad; this is second tasting, could not even finish either time. Perhaps this style eludes me, but I am shocked at the poor taste of this offering from SA.

Frothmeister (726) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange brown with a light brown head. A big nose of concord grape, honey, alcohol, dried fruit, and yeast. The taste has surprising sour undertones, slightly watery, yeast, banana, and some faint citrus, alcohol, tart summer apples, and kind of a sweet & sour sauce thing too. The Samuel Adams Autumn Sampler was a damn good buy. Pick one up if it’s still out.

GnarlyGnome (852) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle: pours a beautiful hazy copper color, with a nice tan head. Aromas are sour yeasty bananas. The flavor is that wonderful banana clove that I love. It's a good beer, not the best dunkelwiezen that I have ever had, but its good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Velkyal (320) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Pours a dark amber with a good frothy couple of inches of foam - I was expecting a bit more dunkel to be honest. The aroma department was dominated by banana, with hints of spice, not clove, just spice in general, and some toastiness. Tastewise the toasted malts really come through, with a bit of sweet caramel and a nice long reasonably dry finish. Medium bodied, quite drinkable and a decent enough brew.
