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.

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.

Poured into a goblet. Dirty copper color with a thin head. It smells like it wants to be a dunkel but it just needs some more practice. Wet hay and cherry smell. Watery taste, an attempt at the malty sweetness and a short finish. Descent texture. Smooth and fluffy with moderate carbonation. An okay beer, not a good dunkel.

Thin reminds me of the crystal clear lighter German types nothing offensive here slight clove and banana taste Miss that old Michelob Dunkel Weiss they had a few years ago that was a nice dark beer. Decent attempt at this style it works and sure beats a Bud.

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 isn’t that the beer doesn’t have any flavor, it’s that it has TOO MUCH flavor. There are so many different flavors in this that it just ends up being a bizarre melange that doesn’t really work well together.

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 don’t 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

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 wasn’t 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 wasn’t enough to make it good. Mild carbonation.
