3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unfiltered, pours an opaque medium chocolaty brown with only slight carbonation and a thin beige head. Aroma has a lot of chocolate overtop banana, wheat, cloves and a slight bit of lemon. Flavour is similar, with wheat and banana up front, followed by chocolate and caramel, finishing with clove and lemon-pepper notes. Medium bodied with a mouthfeel that reminded me of powdered milk, but not neccessarily in a bad way.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml swingtop bottle pours a brownish color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild chocolate and roasted grains with hints of banana and cloves. Taste is roasted grain bitterness with some chocolate and caramel malty sweetness with hints of banana and cloves in the finish. Medium bodied with light carbonation. As far as dunkelweizens go, this one is pretty dam good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ceramic swing top bottle. Pours a hazy brown with golden highlights. Low aroma of chocolate , banana, and spices. even after breathing a while the aromas remained muted. Freshness may be an issue here. The flavours are nice: chocolate, estery banana, cloves, and a woody/reedy element that lends a real rustic character to this beer. Tasty, but I bet it would be better if Iíd had this on tap.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A by-the-book Dunkel Weisse of superior quality.
How: Bottle 500ml swing-top. Consumed fresh soon after its release. Sent to me by Presario, thanks a lot Trevor.
The look: Cloudy brown body topped by a small beige head.
In long: Nose of toasted wheat and clove. Body is pleasantly full without being heavy. Ripe banana peels, cloves, chestnuts, earth, milk chocolate, a little caramel, tree branches, tree roots. An overall pleasant ďdirtyĒ sensation with a strong forest floor character. Wow, what a pleasant surprise. This was a great brew from a brewery I usually donít care about, in a province that does not produce good beer and in a style I usually donít care for. Iím now thinking that maybe I should check out Garth Brooks country Christmas album.

Pours a dark brown with an almond head. Aroma is sweet with malt and cloves. Taste is very nice. A nice full body that is pleasant on the palate. Citrus bite with malt flavours and caramel. Just all around a really great beer. Thanks to presario for this!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Great appearance on this beer. Poured with an average-sized, tan head. Good traces of lace left on the glass through drinking. Body is murky and cloudy (virtually opaque), and a dark brown color.
S: Aroma is a little weak, but I can detect traces of cloves, as well as some smokiness.
T: Chocolate comes through first, followed by cloves. A little banana in there too, I think. Flavor is overall moderately sweet with a medium-lasting duration.
M: Medium-bodied and creamy, with a soft carbonation.
D: Wow, this is a really good beer. Probably my favorite Wild Rose to date. Go get it on tap while itís still in season!

Pours deep brown tall thick head.Malty yeasty aroma. Tastes very roasty and malty not much of a wheat flavour. Slightly spicy not a bad beer but its a bit thin I was expecting mare body.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
A good malt smell but I get a huge rush of fieldberries?? Also a bit of a burnt malt smell. Very fruity smelling. Pours dark and think even in a weizen glass, you canít see through the thin part. Nice head, thins slowyly. The flavour is sweet similar to the smell but there is no sweet berry taste, you get the dark malt flavour and sweetness blended oh so smoothly with the yeast feel and slow easing off of the palate. No real aftertaste. There is a certain sourness in the flavour that Iím sure is supposed to be there but that is why I donít rate it higher, considering the other numbers I gave.

Coca-cola like colour with a hearty tall and thick head. Mustard, dark roast coffee, paint thinner nose. Black coffee and tarty malt mouth. Cooler and light near the end and finish has a dusty mouth coating showing evidence of a thick beer. Very lightly carbonated.
