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.

A decent enough beer however it is to sweet and light in color for the style. Pours a slightly hazy sweet tea color with a standard beer head, not a weizen head. Aroma is mainly yeast with some sweet malts and noticeable cloves and banana esters. To me this is to sweet, not that I want some hybrid hop bomb, but something with more balance and wheat.

( 12oz bottle thanks to blutt59) Pours clear yellow/orange and just average lacing. Nose of German wheat, clove. Taste is lightly sour and some chocolate on the finish. Doesn’t remind me of most dunkels at all. Watery body, needs more sweetness and finishes quite dry.

Bottle thanks to Cavie. Orange pour. Sweet fruit aroma. Taste is sour and awkward. Dark fruit aftertaste.

blakeZero (18) - Fishers, Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2009
Bottle poured. Hazy orange color with an off-white head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of citrus and bread. Overall, a decent beer, but kind of weak on all fronts.

12oz bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy amber with moderate tan head. Aroma is initially a bit sour and yeasty, with a more subtle caramel aroma later. Taste is quite bland, not much there - a bit of sweetness, but just barely. There just isn’t much here - I was expecting a lot more.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with moderate white head that dissipates to a thin ring. Aroma is wheat along with some light citrus. Flavor is light toast, some tart fruitiness and a little bit of clove. Thin fizzy mouthfeel. Not a bad beer per se, but this is lacking the roasted maltiness of a traditional dunkel.

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.

Not my favorite, but not bad. This pours a deep amber color, with a yeast aroma. Its flavor is subtle with spice just sneaking in.

SlovakSniper (4351) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 15, 2012
Une bière brune et son anneau chétif. Un nez de blé grillé à travers un murmure d’épices. Bof. Un goût qui n’est pas très relevé. Il y a de l’eau et quelques saveurs de blé épicé. En bouche, un corps plutôt faible avec des bulles très actives et une texture aqueuse. Une finale légère et sans conséquence directe sur mon bonheur. Rebof.
