12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 1/25/2014. Pours almost crystal clear deep ruby brown color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big peach, caramel, toffee, brown bread, wheat, floral, light banana, and herbal earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with big peach presence and moderate malt balance; with good strength. Taste of big peach, banana, caramel, toffee, brown bread, wheat, clove, pepper, floral, light nuttiness, and herbal earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of peach, banana, caramel, toffee, brown bread, wheat, clove, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of peach, yeast, and malt flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy, smooth, and slightly syrupy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice fruited dunkelweizen. Good balance and robustness of fruit, malt, and yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted on 12/28/13 from a capped 12oz bottle. Pours clear, but very dark auburn/mahogany with an average off-white head that slowly recedes to thin lace with an average collar. The nose on this one is all about the peaches, with dark, nutty bread malt and a touch of roast taking a back seat. The flavor is lightly sweet with candied peach, caramel, and lightly nutty dark bread malt. The body is light with very lively carbonation and a medium peach and nutty finish.

Fruity. At first it is interesting but it qui ckly fades into a sugar drunk. Not enough balance or any of the nuts that it says in the taste.
