COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Supple, malty and mellow. Its harmonious flavour is the great strength of our dark wheat beer.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Medium brown with tan head, fades to film. Aroma has plenty of yeasty esters, mostly banana, toasted grain, and some faint chocolate. Flavor is all banana and toasted grain up front, fades into a yeasty finish, without much else going on. Finishes clean, easy drink.

jefcon (1459) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Pure, yeasty aromas with some spice and ripe fruits: plum, pear, apple. Light brown coloration with a lively head. Smooth and maybe a little thin, but malty flavors of wheat and peat, a little banana and a little caramel. Pleasant beer.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2006 Bottle. Pours cloudy dark orange-brown with a large fluffy off-white head. Aroma is banana, clove, a hint of caramel malt, and a slight bit of roastiness. Flavor is the same components, with some yeast and a bit of unfortunate sourness (bad bottle?). As compared to their normal hefeweizen, this actually has a weaker flavor all around, except for the addition of some caramel malt and a bit of roasted malt. Doesn’t really seem heavier---it’s substantially thinner, in fact. In any case, this isn’t bad, but their superb normal hefeweizen is a *much* better choice than this dunkelweizen.

DocLock (8331) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2006
Pours turbid deep copper with aroma of banana, clove, Bazooka. Tastes caramel malty, with the banana, wheaty yeasty malt, clove, and some toffee at the finish. Medium palate.

thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2006
One of the better wheat beers I’ve had. Regular clove/banana hints and just a bit of roasty malt. Clean, light finish. A little bit thin in body, but not bad.

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - AUG 28, 2006
Gah! Lost my rating. 16.9oz, no date. Pours a cloudy orange caramel with a large 3 finger light beige head. Aroma is typical of banana and clove, though the banana is stronger. Also some yeast and caramel malts. Taste is more of the same, but it does have a little bit of the toastiness that I was looking for towards the finish. Also a little bit of tang in the finish, with very little bitterness in the beginning. High carbonation, light bodied. Didn’t really seem any heavier than the regular hefe, though I am going from memory and not a vertical. Not my favorite from these guys, but still good.
