EithCubes (4885) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2009 Bottle. Murky golden-amber pour with no real head. Aroma is unbalanced and stale with strong wheaty and light citrus notes. Taste is wheat, citrus, and spice, more indeterminate than clove. Nice and spicy, medium body, at least it has a good palate. Light sweet fruitiness and some good lip smacking. Strong carbonation. Good level of acidity and medium-dry finish, but the taste just isn’t here. [2.3] Update in July 2009: draught at the pub. The wheat and citric notes remain from before, but a little heavier on the phenols with no esters whatsoever (though I have a high perception threshold for esters). Biggest plus addition is a sort of dry cookie dough that permeates the end and aftertaste. Sticky but a little thin, and I’d definitely give it another go. [3.0]

MrRomero (1975) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 2, 2006
12 oz bottle: poured light orange with a small white head. This is not a color of dunkelweizen that I am used to. An American Wheat, maybe. Very light banana and yeast notes. Slightly tart. Finish is lightly sweet.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2006 Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a wisp of a white head. Nice fruity banana clove aroma. Typical flavor of wheat malt and yeast. Medium light texture. Moderate sweet finish, and a tad on the dry side. Not outstanding, but still a decent beer. Not really a dunkel. More like a Hefe and American Wheat hybrid

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 8/20
DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAY 5, 2006
(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with atpayne, thanks Adam!) Moderate banana and yeast, some spice, fairly sweet in general with a hint of tartness, but the prominent wheat maltiness is extremely bready, not at all the kind of wheat beer I could enjoy. Significantly bready, fairly sweet, and lightly caramel in the nose. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a stale, dead mouthfeel. Cloudy, golden amber color definitely seems more hefeweizen in color than dunkelweizen. Small, fizzy white head fully dissipates rapidly. Not enjoyable and this beer continues to get worse as it gets warmer.

after4ever (6125) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2006
12-ounce bottle. Thin and soapy, light head that fizzles, fairly bland-looking amber body. Undistinguished in every way, though, other than the soapiness, not an obviously flawed beer.

Oakes (12539) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 19, 2006
Hazy dark amber colour and a footy, chocolatey nose. Some light apple and banana notes, a fair bit of acidity, but mainly stale, lifeless rudderless malts. Poor example.

tcruicks (282) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - FEB 22, 2006
Cloudy orange beer. Aroma is very weak, fruity/ sour apply. Flavour is a bit weird, spicy and fruity at the same time.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - FEB 22, 2006
On tap, at brewpub. Looks like dirty dish water. The aroma is rather empty, with hints of apple tartness. The taste is very similar with more banana and cloves. The palate is alright, but a bit watery without gumption. Highly drinkable however.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Thanks to Sprinkle for this one. Golden amber brew with a nose that is complex with a ton of stuff coming at me. Loads of spices and over ripe fruit.Almost has the Christmas brew nose with the Mulling spice aromas. Taste is much less complex as it has just a touch of those previously present spices.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2005
Bottle from Indiana. Hazy copper color with a medium head that diminished slowly and produced good lacing. Good spicy fruit aroma. Medium body with smooth texture. Moderate wheat, spice and fruit flavor with a average sweet finish.
