Beersiveknown (5284) - NORTHERN IRELAND - APR 30, 2017
Keg at l Mulligan grocer
opaque dark ruby chocolate brown with thin tan head. Quite sharp acidic berries and brown malt on nose. Dusty, earthy. Zippy carbonation and moderate body, slightly sherbetty, sweet, tart, toasty, dry. A little roast barley and cocoa powder, fairly low pH which combined with carbonation makes it a little taxing. Would like more wheat character, more dunkels than weizen but Great to see a trad style attempted.

Creedence (309) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2013
Draught at Franciscan Well Easter Festival. Pours amber-brown with an off white lasting head. Aroma is quite mild, bit of wheat and molasses. Taste is nice light sweetness, light bitterness, with a slight smoky edge. Nice smoked aftertaste on palate, lively carbonation, medium mouthfeel. Lacks the strong and heavy sweetness I normally associate with dunkelweizens but it’s quite good nonetheless.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2010
[on tap at Porterhouse, Covent Garden]. Dark porterish looks, it pours highly carbonated with a rapidly dispersing head. This dissipates very quickly to leave rising bubbles. Very roasty but not at all thick or chewy, slight sweet fruit at first but then malt takes over in the aftertaste. Pretty refreshing stuff after a hot day pounding around Covent Garden markets, but as a dunkelweizen it’s fairly down the line. [28032010]

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - OCT 21, 2009
On tap at the Salthouse in Galway. Hazy dark brown with ruby tint and small creamy beige head. Aroma is roast, toast, dark fruit yeast, med sweet. Flavor is roast and toast again with a little bit more yeastiness, nutty, sweet. Syrupy medium body. Out of style but not bad.

3.7
Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Draft at Oslo in Galway (and sampled at the brewery). Quite dark, even black, with a steady tan top. The aroma is yeasty, almost bubble-gummy. There’s a chewy consistency to this and an almost smoky aspect, but in the end it’s a sweet, bready thing. Quite good. (#3661, 9/10/2009)

jredmond (8285) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Draft at the Salt House in Galway, Ireland. Pours a dark brown body with small white head. The aroma is wheat yeast. The taste has a nice mouth feel and finishes with notes of caramel, nut and roast.

cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 5, 2009
Dark cloudy brown w nice big head. Mild malty aroma of yeast and some fruti. Caramel and some spices develops in mouth. Flavour is sweet w some bitternes in finish. ... prefer their pale ale, but hey... its another Irish :-)
