COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For Summit Unchained 09, brewer Eric Blomquist is creating a genuine Dunkel Weizen - an often-overlooked German wheat beer style. Similar to Hefe Weizen but darker, this brew will offer complex and rounded flavors like biscuit, toffee and chocolate from the malts along with hints of banana and clove esters.

Coming off Unchained 8 (blech) I wasn’t sure what to expect here. First impressions, not too bad. Bottle pours a very hazy orange color with a minimal head. Aromas are clean, some grains and fruit. Flavor is initially some darker malts, which rolls into a heavy hit of wheat and chocolate. Finish is lingering and soft, with notes of banana and cloves. Medium to light bodied. Pleasantly surprised with this one.

12oz bottle, from Eastgate Jungle Jim’s. Probably not a fresh bottle. Mostly clear dark red / slightly brown color. Thin beige bit of head. Lace doesn’t stick. Medium body. Lighter, but pronounced carbonation. Little thin. More dry in the finish. Some dark fruit, light metallic, acid, light hint of fermented banana. Light to moderate sweet taste, light bitter, light tart, kind of an acidic bite. Not drinking too well right now.

nuplastikk (4295) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2013
Tap at Dexters. Thick opaque brown-burgundy. Thin, steady off-white head. Clove and bitterness upfront lead to a sweet, malty finish. Medium bodied, quite sessionable. Light banana tones, maybe a touch of rye, gingerbread. Not quite on the level of a true Bavarian example, but still enjoyable enough, well executed.

AndyReynolds (861) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - APR 25, 2013
Nice dunkel-wize with a the typical banana clove notes. Some good toasted malts, caramel, and sweet malt notes. Not my favorite style, but a good take on it fo sho.

Bottle, hazey caramel amber pour. This head that faded fast, low carbination. Fruity aroma. Watery and light wheat beer. Not a fan

Had this form a bottle many times. A solid American example. Sweet wheat flavor with some banana and fruit flavor, as well as moderately roasted malt and cloves. Appropriate palate, and light brown color. I can’t pick out any sediment which leads me to believe this is filtered, and I definitely prefer these beers unfiltered.

I'm giving this an 8 on taste cause the thickness of the dunkel smoothness of the weizen combines so well def a different but surprisingly good beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of wheat, carmel, light banana and light clove. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of wheat, carmel, light clove and a hint of fruittiness with a smooth lingering carmel finish.

Pour from bottle. Found 1 six pack left at an out of the way liquor store in MN Summer of 2012. Complex taste, carmel color, thick head, low aromas. $9.49/ 6 pack

Single bottle from Total Wine. Pours a very hazy copper with about a finger of off-white head. Aroma of caramel, malt, sourdough. Taste is a wheat beer without the citrus - a little banana, cloves, and mint. Finishes very dry. Very light body and a little watery. Really interesting - definitely makes me want to try more Summit in the future.
