3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Head lacking in height but lingers.
Murky copper; lively carbonation.
Phenolic; banana bread; clove; chlorophenol; ginger; cola; tangerine.
Sweet, tart; flavors of butterscotch/caramel, toast, rustic grains, pie spices, isoamyl.
Full-bodied, plenty of residual sugars, with a faint, almost cleansing citrus twang; roasty background; lasting yeast esters.
Definitely complex but falls short of its Bavarian ancestors in drinkability.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
