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.

Aroma is roasty chocolate. Brown in color. Flavor is sweet, roast,y and wheaty with a little bit of clove and yeast perhaps. It has a lingering sweetness as well. It is definitley better than the Irish Red which it is competing against.

Pailhead (5731) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 1, 2011
On tap: The aroma consists of banana, bubblegum, light caramel, and a touch of roast. It’s a hazy brownish-orange with a small off-white head that quickly settles to a thin film. The flavor starts with moderate banana, caramel, and a touch of chocolate. The finish has a light wheaty tanginess and a touch of roast. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, I love wheat beers and this is a pretty tasty Weizenbock.

Strykzone (5601) - 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 (5583) - 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.

Suttree (5579) - 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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Bottle: Pours a dark cloudy brown with an off-white head. The nose is fresh and lively with a bit ester and dark fruit forward nose; hidden caramel and molasses with a nice spicy wheat background. The flavor is chewy with a nice wheat and caramel touch and a raisin and molasses spicy finish. Clean and balanced with a big body and mouthfeel. Nice.

kramer (5393) - 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.

beerguy101 (5338) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Sampled on 12/31/2010. This dunkelweizen pours a medium to light brown color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with decent retention and lacing. The aroma is bready, caramel, fruity and sweet. A medium to light bodied dunkel. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy. Decent carbonation. Nice breadiness, but a little lacking in sweetness. Decent and drinkable, yet seems to be missing something. Could use a little more sweetness and a touch more breadiness. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Skyview (5310) - 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.
