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

Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours deep brown with a large white head. Aroma of wheat, bananas, and spices. Flavor is bananas and spices, very enjoyable brew.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2006 500 ML bottle. Very good. I liked this better than their hefeweizen. Since I like stouts and hefes this was a good marriage of the two. The roasted qualities added another level to the banana and clove scents and flavors. I like the frothy head and full body and carbonation of this beer. Good late summer/fall beer. Yummy.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2006
Bottle (500ml). Murky brownish orange with a huge lasting light tan foamy head. Aroma of yeast, tart fruit, sour white wine, light sweet grain and mild herbal hops. Taste is pleasing, brown sugar malt, sweetly spicy, very yeasty, lots of slightly tart fruit character, reminds me more of a straightforward brune, as it has essentially no roast character at all, and virtually no graininess. Decent body, nicely carbonated, a little fruit stickiness and acidity in the quick finish - a wonderfully refreshing beer, and I guess it straddles the fruity hefe and the colour of the dunkel, but not what I envisioned - better, actually!

1FastSTi (3344) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2006
$1.99 for a 16 oz. bottle. The beer pours to a cleam vibrant amber/brown body with a lasting creamy white head. The flavor is sweet and bready with nice wheat. Seems to be lightly smoked and tart apple juice. Some banana and clove. The aroma also comes off as soapy. Cloves and light banana. Wheat. The palate is tart, sticky, and carbonated. This is no New Glarus Black Wheat. :(

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 27, 2006
Nice hazy brown/amber color... not-too-huge foamy, fluffy head... a perfect amount of carbonation. Aroma of sweet malts, roasted grains, caramel... some yeast, some hint of fruitiness/citrus. Sweet malty/yeasty flavor, a hint of banana... really good overall. A nice crisp clean finish, completely refreshing. I love this style, I’ll definitely go for more of these...

BeerandBlues2 (10713) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Pours dark brown-walnut with a medium frothy off-white head and some spotty lacing. Aroma is dark baked wheat bread, yeast and toasted malt (meal) with cardboard notes. Medium sweet start, moderately toasted wheat and malt flavor, slight fruitiness (pear, apple) with a clean finish. Medium bodied and smooth, fizzy, burpy palate.

jercraigs (8423) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2006
Draft @ Ashley’s in Ann Arbor. Hazy brown body smallish creamy white head. (3+) Yeast aroma, some malt and muted banana. Tart wheaty tang with moderate sweet malt. Average to medium palate, pleasantly effervescent. Solid refreshing pint.

MaBeer1972 (1431) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Bottled. Had while in Florida last winter. This one is really enjoyable. Dark and malty. A classic lover that you want to hang with.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 18, 2006
Very hazy chestnut pour with a pillowy dusky white head. Obvious cloves, banana, toasted malt and wheat in the aroma. Classic banana, cloves, biscuits and wheat flavors atop a roasted malt backbone. Mildly hoppy roasted malt finish.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 18, 2006
Pours cloudy amber with a fluffy white head. Nose of bananas and clove, but with more malt and wheat. Bubbly mouthfeel. Sweet flavors of banana are blended nicely with the wheat, bread, and yeast tastes. Good malt profile that gives it a filling feel.
