COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours with a small tan head over a clear copper body. Aroma of banana, rye and husky wheat. Taste is watery with clove, wheat and some esters. Fizzy and watery.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - NOV 6, 2012
11/6/12. 12oz bottle from Publix. Barely hazy deep amber pour with a small khaki head that cuts in half and sticks in a small ring and laces in spotty sheets. Big banana and fruitiness in the aroma with touches of cream, caramel, and spice. The flavor shows a ton of banana, bubblegum, and fruit again with hints of spice, caramel, and metal. Not bad, actually.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Bottled. Poured medium orange with a short, swirly white head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasty vanilla and banana notes with a bunch of cloves accenting.. more assertive than I wanted for the style. The flavor found warm caramel, molasses, and a kiss of chocolate at the core, with ripe bananas and cloves around.. finished very spicy with cloves and nutmeg leading. Medium-bodied, very sweet, and very spicy on the palate (those components didn’t always mesh well or flow smoothly).. heavy-handed for the style.

PorterPounder (7316) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarkets - Killearn - 12 oz bottle. Bonus - thought I had already rated this...was just going to do a rerate! Slightly murky dark copper pour, soft off-white head. Aroma of cloves and bubble gum. Solid wheat flavor with a hint of bananas and cloves and a touch of bubble gum. Mouthfeel is sticky and thick.

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2011
draft at Coles, Buffalo NY. Pours a somewhat burnt orange color. Like when an orange is starting to go bad color. Cloves dominate aroma with fruity yeastiness. Decent dunkle flavor but maybe needs a tad more in both aroma & flavor

bytemesis (6723) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 2, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2012 Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a medium creamy tan head that laces well. Aroma is wheat, roasted malt, notes of lemon and banana. .flavor seems quite authentic with clear wheat, caramel, banana, and lemon notes, light sweetness, mildly astringent, banana lemon finish with just a touch of bitter. Very drinkable.

Strykzone (6718) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2007
Perhaps the darkest weizen I have seen. Aroma is big and malty with some spice. Aroma is better than the flavor which was not substantial. Body was thin as well.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6717) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Sampled on draft at Smokin’ Joe’s this beer poured a caramel-brown color with a large foamy cream colored head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was light banana, clove, a touch of citrus and moderate bread. The aroma was bitter and bready with notes of caramel, clove, a touch of banana, tart citrus and nut. The finish was long, tart, bread, caramel, citrus and clove. Fairly full bodied. Nice.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2011
Bottle:   Big pillowy white head, nice lacing, dark and hazy amber.   Looks fairly decent.   Both the nose and on the tongue it has some bits of clove, banana, and spices.   More flavorful on the tongue than the nose suggests.   A little mealy, some dark pitted fruit on the exit, light, but its there.   Could stand to be a bit heavier, but as is its fairly moderate.   Better than I expected.   Thanks for the bottle Bill!
