2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle. Appearance is amber-orange and cloudy. Head is minimal to non-existent. Aromas of banana, bubblegum, and a hint of nutmeg. Strong flavors of banana and nutmeg. Medium-body with lively carbonation and a strong, slightly dry, finish.
This is not a favorite of mine. The problem isnít that the beer doesnít have any flavor, itís that it has TOO MUCH flavor. There are so many different flavors in this that it just ends up being a bizarre melange that doesnít really work well together.

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.

Not to knock this particular beer but I donít think I like this style. Got it in a sampler pack and only drank 1 of 2. Had a sour taste.

Smells like a more interesting/complex hef. Cloudy at the top, but clear at the bottom. A bit bland compared to regular hef. Surprisingly light palate. Nothing really special

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strong yeast, clove, slight banana aroma. White/tan head, lingers. Medium carbonation. Medium brown color, hazy. Taste is clove, slight banana, maybe some plum, sourness. Slightly cloying. Light medium palate.Clove lingers along with a sweetness. While this may be brewed to style, l I do not like this beer. I feel it is cloying and does not have enough darker, roasty flavors.

Ewww..a boring dunkelweizen. I admit I wasnít expecting much from this and I still was let down. On tap at Bocktown. Aroma was weak. Slightly tart with distinct wheaty characteristics. Pour was a nice cloudy medium brown with a 3 finger off white head. Taste was very weak and thin. Clove and banana were prominent, but not very full. There was not much else going on in this beer. There was a yeastiness that came out as it warmed which helped to add dimension to the beer. That wasnít enough to make it good. Mild carbonation.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
from Mondial de la BiŤre, Strasbourg - pours a dark orange-brown colour with a little beige foam; moderate aroma of banana and corn; poor malt backbone and a pretty harsh palate, a hint of acidity and a short quite dry aftertaste of banana and wheat - very poor

Strong banana with moderate cloves. Cloudy dark and unfiltered. Not a huge dunkel fan. This is a middle of the road dunkle.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Deep copper color. Aroma is over-ripe bananas and oatmeal. Taste is shockingly bad; this is second tasting, could not even finish either time. Perhaps this style eludes me, but I am shocked at the poor taste of this offering from SA.
