3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Total Wine, Chantilly 12oz ($3): I have finally found this beer. For some reason this is hard to find... Pours a muddy brown with a quickly dissipating head that leaves barely any lacing. Aroma is bananarama, with wheat, and some spice. Taste is bubblegum, banana, and some roasted malts. Taste is quite smooth. Body is somewhat thicker than most wheat beers. Leaves some of the sugary stickiness in the aftertaste. Quite good.

Pours a dark amber brown with a small tan head. Smells like dark fruits and spice. Taste is rich with dark fruits, chocolate, spices and sweet malts. Med-full bodied. After taste is rich but a little short. Good brew. I can drink this again.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Dark cloudy reddish brown pour with a fizzy off-white head. Concentrated dark wheat flavors. Typical yeasty bready esters (banana, etc.) but condensed enough now to read as dried red fruit. Good mouth feel. Creamy wheat body mixed with syrupy red malt. Certainly a fuller denser flavor than any other Dunkel I can call to mind, but still seems like a shotgun wedding of styles and flavors.

This is definitely a "Big Boy" wheat beer. Love the chocolate/cocoa nibs appeal. For a 7% brew, the wheat creaminess attempts to balance the booze. Highly Reccomend!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ruddy brown colored beer with an off-white head. Aromas are a bit rancid, of foul water, and rotten fruit. The taste is much better than the smell. Tastes of toffee, sweet caramel, sweet malts, some banana notes, and finishes on a bit of candy sugar. A bit cloying, sweet, dark fruit finish. Not bad, but not great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’m starting to like this style of beer. The pour reveals a cloudy brown body with a thin and creamy head. Aromas are floral hops, sulfur, clove and a very delicate hint of vanilla. The mouth feel was sticky and almost thick - full of banana, dried citrus and lightly roasted malts. Finishes well with a lingering hop bitterness followed by soft toffee notes.
