Bottle from variety pack while pre gaming outside patriots game. Pours brown with semi earthy sweet nose. Tastes of malt, nutty, earth, banana, wheat, and nutmeg. Light bodied easy drinking but nice for crisp fall day like now

Pours a slightly hazy light brown. Floaties in a Sam Adams. Intentional or fault? Lightly carbonated with a thick head. Smelled of hops, green and something off I couldn’t quite pick out. Taste was malty, sweet, very fruity especially banana and tropical with clove and spice. Finish is similar to the flavor.

Clear bubbly orange-brown, tiny white head. Aroma a not entirely pleasant estery smell with some wheat and spices. Medium light body with carbonation. Flavor sweet and fruity with background of wheat and banana and cloves or something. Ok I think but I have some bias as not a huge fan of this style.

This is a good representation of the style. Not my favorite style but good nonetheless. Had it in a fall variety pack. I wouldn’t buy this beer solo, but worth a try if you like dunkels.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very typical Dunkelweizen. Smooth, moderately sweet, rich and full-bodied, fruity (mildly-banana-like) aroma, very faintly suggesting spice. Solidly enjoyable, if somewhat boring. Thankfully, not too sour! Good and I would gladly drink it again.

Bottle into a goblet. Aroma is that of sweet rolled fruit and light malt. Pour is a dark amber with a very fine head. Taste is a rounded malt fruitful smoothed taste. Finish is fruitful smoothness. A good ale, I would buy this one again.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light brown pour, very thin head. Nice aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg along with spicy yeast. Flavor is very "soft" with cinnamon, banana, and more spice. However.... the finish is an unexpected combo of sour apple, then leaves a sugary coating on the tongue at the very end. Moutfeel is extremely watery, which combined with the sugary finish makes this disappointing. Started strong, but ends poorly.

Part of the Autumn sampler pack. Yellowish brown, cloudy body with a medium white head. Aroma is spicy with a hint of clove. Taste is fruity, namely banana and orange peel with a touch of ginger. The finish is clean although the banana sticks around a little.
