3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a weizen glass, the appearance was a ruddy dark ruby red to brown color with a thin layer of white to off white foamy head that dissipated at a decent pace. Messy lace, somewhat stringy.
The aroma blends some spices of clove and ginger to some sweet banana, subtle bready malts and some milk chocolate tones.
The flavor takes all of those previously mentioned aromas to blend nicely and leave a refined semi-sweet to dense malted wheaty aftertaste with the same sort of finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. Low carbonation but with that, it helped to allow the spice and the wheat to seem to hit appropriately on my tongue.
Overall, nice dunkelweizen that I would have again. Seemed like an American brewer is fairly close on this style.

smells of burnt wheat and tastes the same. Actually the smoke outside smelled the same.. It is quite smooth though.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a growler at the brewery. Pours a reddish brown with a thin white head. The aroma is stout like with roasted malt and chocolate. The flavor is bread and a bit of caramel. A bit thin but very well balanced. Nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler shared about 20 hours after it was opened. The pour wasn’t great but that should be expected from an almost day old growler, a dark chesnut brown body that was slightly muddy sat there with almost no head or visible carbonation (once again this is a day old growler). The aroma started subdued with notes of dark bread dough, dark fruit and a nice dose of spiceyness. Palate held up suprisingly well some srong carbonation showing up nicely and a rather full mouthfeel overall. Flavor was the best part of this beer with some rather strong spice, dark fruit skins, dark breads, touch of wheat. Nice beer, good job CMB.
