COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our rendition of the German Dunkel Weizen, simply meaning dark wheat. Both brewed and unfiltered like a Hefeweizen, it is cloudy in appearance, and while the clove banana notes are evident, so are chocolate and caramel due to the addition of assorted roasted grains.

Notes are somewhat lacking, but I had this a while back at Town Hall in MSP. About as tasty as a wheat beer can get!

Pours a cloudy medium brown, with almost no head. No lacing. Light spiciness in the aroma. Awesome flavor. Full bodied maltiness - wheat and grain and caramel and mild honey. This is accompanied by some prominent fruit and spice character. Actually, the flavor is somewhat simlar to a fine Belgian dubbel. The tart plum in the finish is fantastic. Mildly hopped, lightly carbonated.

Tap 8/2004. Hazy semi-luminous dark amber. Rather reminiscent of the appearance of many fantome beers. Apple clove aroma. Good german hefe yeast profile. Intense cloviness. Minimal roast/dark malt character. Long wheaty-sticky sweet finish. Seems more hefe-amber than hefe-dunkel to me. I like the yeast profile though.

Wheaty aroma. Smells like the Dunkel Weizens I had in Germany. Dirty dishwater brown but with a nice amber hue. Small, off-white head and virtually no lace. Banana notes are present in the palate. Has a little bit of a salty finish. Good wheat flavor. A solid and quality brew.

Murky, dark orange pour, Candy sweet aroma with a bit of fresh lake water underneath. Has a bit of a thin mouthfeel. Flavor has bits of sweet chocolate with cloves and bananas making their presence known in the back end. Yast make itself known as well. A bit too carbonoted and thin for my palate. All around decent though.

On-tap at the brewpub: Strange murky fudgesicle brown color, soft and thin beige head, no real lacing sticks, just some drippings sliding back into the fluffy collar. Aroma is slightly dullish lemon rind spice, very slight clove, fruity dark and plummy with touches of earthy yeast giving peet moss or wet dirt nuances. Taste is full, round, and fruity, interesting tang of caramel malts and dark juicy fruits, bringing plum, berries, dark cherries, mandorine orange, its nearly a frickin’ fruit salad its so juicy. Spices mingle within quite well bringing bits of clove, pepper, lemon rinds, ginger, and earth. Never overly spicy, it always makes its presense felt in all the right areas. Very subtle and complex. Great flavors in this one. Strong and sweet. Yum. Feel is a bit shy of medium with a fluffy texture and carbonation, much like any hefe, but here the malty rich profile and fruity tang helps it keep it interesting. Even though I enjoyed the hell out its flavors, I had a hard time getting through this glass of beer. I think the overall beefy tangyness kept me from fully engaging quaffability. Still...quite good stuff.

Very good but not what I expect from a dunkel. Lots of fresh fruit and spice. The wheat is there. Sweet and very smooth. I would say it was a hefeweizen if it wasn’t dark. One of Town Hall’s better efforts.

Cloudy, light brown color with a tad of a head. Nose suggests a few hops and wheat. The taste has the maltiness and wheat one would expect, but it is much sweeter than I thought it would be. Also very creamy. Quite nice!

I usually don’t drink wheat beers, but I appreciate what they have to offer. This Dunkelweizen was a complete treat to behold. Slightly hazy, with a nose of plum and wheat. The taste was that of the same, supported by a beefy heft. This has me rethinking my usual avoidance of this style...
