3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz. pour, on tap at the brewpub. Consumed on 1-21-09. Listed on the menu as being called “Dark German Wheat.” Aroma of banana, orange Jolly Ranchers, lemon, skittles, and butter. Floral, yeasty, and very refreshing and appetizing smell. Pours a hazy dark amber with a small amount of head. Malty, tangy, spicy taste features milk chocolate and clove. It’s not as flavorful as I would like. Light to medium body. Like many hefeweizens, the aroma is stronger than the flavor.

At Town Hall, pint appears brown with a short lived head and little lace. The aroma is banana and some spice. The flavor is mostly malty, with the banana clove thing going on. The palate is cold, carbonated, and wet. This is good for washing down any food. Cold and wet.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft: dark brown, slightly sweet aroma, banana and clover taste, more of the clover than the banana, medium mouthfeel, this one was solid but it isn’t one I’d order again.

Decent dunkle, and a style I like to drink. On-tap at the brewpub. Cloudy medium brown. Hoppy, and that hit first, then sourness through to the finish. Decent malting to keep up the drinkability. Medium or better mouthfeel.A nice one that I would have again - nailed the style.

Shaker pint draft at the brewpub. Hazed brown orange pour with no head. Served really cold. Aroma of wheat, clove and some ripe banana fruit. A touch of earthiness. Taste is hefe - with a bit of roasted flavor to the back. Get the cloves, citrus and bananas. Nothing too big or overpowering. Nice enough Dunkel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky brown mixed with crimson coloration, solid swath of creamy white caps the top.
Sweetness in the nose, wheaty, whiffs of banana and spice. Soft and airy.
Much fruit in the flavor, banana, some citrus and clove, some caramel from the malt, and it’s all very smooth and flavorful. Lush and lovely.
Smooth and easy-drinking, refreshing, just enough wheat texture. Medium-bodied, with plentiful flavor.
Yum, yum, bubblegum.

Growler from footbalm. Dark brown with small white head. The aroma was of bananas, clove, and yeast. The taste was the same with weird cigarette ash taste. After awhile it began to smell like cigarette smoke. Crazy. Eric warned me about this one........

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Creamy Dark Brown Color with Creamy White Head. Light Dark Malt Notes on the Nose...Very Subtle. Sweet Malt Notes...Followed by Bitter Hop Notes and a Wheat Aftertaste..The Malt Notes Give Off a Smokey Flavor...Some Chocolate and Spices..Notably Cloves.. Initially a Wet Mouthfeel...Moving Towards a Dry Wheat Aftertaste...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler via trade with footbalm! - Thanks Eric! - Pours cloudy brown with a healthy offwhite creamy head that fades back to a ring and laces some. Aromas of bannana, clove, slight caramel and a touch of chocolate. Flavor is good and malty upfront then some nice bannana and clove flavor that gives way to a slight spicy note at the finish. Very much like a chocolate covered bannana. Smooth well carbonated palate. I found this one pretty pleasant to drink..
