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.

Growler from Whole Foods. Clove, banana, and toffee malt aroma. Minimally hazy chestnut brown color with large head. Sweet orange/banana, strong clove and light toffee malt flavor. Spicy - overall a nice beer.

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange copper with a medium creamy off white head that leaves spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is clove and banana with bubblegum. Medium mouthfeel with a crisp bready malt with banana and light citrus. Easy to drink, a good dunkel from Sam Adams.

Tap @ Flying Saucer KC. Orange brown appearance with a cream colored head. Dark wheat, banana, clove, fairly typical, notable nose. Dark malty, huge banana, clove, somewhat spicy, wheat malty flavor. The banana and clove notes are in overdrive but I still enjoy the beer.

"the clove spiciness and the banana fruitiness are done pretty well, though there’s not quite as much difference from a tradition hefe (besides the color) to get very excited. ok brew, though, and a style I like."

Bottle from Harvest collection variety package. Pours hazy brown with off-khaki head. Nose is malt, spicy hops, earthy brown sugar, mild banana. Tastes malty, a bit sweet up front, with earthy nuts, spice, and banana. Pretty complex, and better than I expected.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks Jay! Dark brownish bred pour with white head, aroma brought notes of banana, clove, biscuit, caramel, toffee, hints of earth and grassy notes. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, some nice banana, clove, touch of grass and earth, slightly watery finish with a hint of sweetness.

12 oz. bottle w/ Sample B. Pours brown with a small diminishing beige head. The aroma was malty, fruity (dark varieties, bananas), slightly nutty, yeast, and a hint of spice. The flavor has a nice malt rich malt base with the dark fruits, banana, yeast, caramel, and spices coming through as well. Medium bodied and smooth drinking.

single bottle from Kroger, mix-pick six pack (this, pyramid okto, hopadillo, + 3 rodeo clowns) .. . pours a rather lifeless mop water brown .. low foam .. . odd bitterness .. mild esters .. light chocolate banana and soiled bark .. . wow, way to dumbed down and a bit disappointing .. . . I have to go now. My planet needs me.
