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.

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.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Sampled from 12-oz bottle via Fall Brewmasters Collection 12-pack. Pours a semi-clear brownish amber colored brew with a thick and creamy off-white head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, floral hops and a hint of citrus. Taste is light to medium bodied, flavors of caramel malt, some light yeast, and floral hops. Finish is light, crisp, some malt and yeast aftertaste that quickly disappears. One of the lighter dunkelweizens I’ve tried but still a solid beer.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Cloudy medium copper body with a light khaki and yellowish head. The head is dense and long lasting. Light banana esters in the nose along with some pleasant floral hints. There is also some peanut butter in the overall sweet smelling beer. The taste is initially bread crusts with some banana peels coming through later in the drink. There is also some woody tobacco that throws off the finish. The banana peels add up as you drink and it gets cloying. Too bad the taste doesn’t quite measure up the pleasing smell.

Taste is big grains, sweet malt, candy notes, banana, spice, yeast and cocoa. Body is medium with a bubbly carbonation. Finishes with more grains, chocolate banana, light spice, yeast, sweet malt and candy.

Suttree (4902) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2009
I liked this more than I expected. Reddish brown, decent sized loose, spongey head. I got some rye, some banana, some toasty aromas, and the flaor was more rye. Nice and clean, no "off" flavors to speak of. Tasty. Sampled at lithy’s Septemberfest.

kramer (4684) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightyl hazy light brown body with a small fizzy off white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is pretty decent, slightly husky and earthy with some light esters of banana. The flavor is a bit thin though, not enough yeastiness or body. The finish is laced with banana and clove. Light to medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. This one isn’t the best.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - 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.

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.
