Cloudy dark yellow. Bready at first, then clove spice and a banana finish. Pleasant.

Keg at Hopmonk Tavern, Sonoma, 28/04/14. Murky orange amber with a moderate beige covering that retains well. Nose is banoffee pie, clove, banana smoothie, spice. Taste comprises banoffee pie, stewed dates, fruit loaf, light vanilla, spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Nice dunkelweizen - the best of the 4 Hompmonk beers I had!

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2014 On tap @ Hopmonk Sebastopol. Hazy amber colored beer with a small white head. The nose is quite buttery. Not pleasant. Banana, toast, and some caramel. Brown sugar sweetness and a bit of bubblegum. Flavor is very sweet. Less buttery, fortunately. Toast, caramel, bubblegum, and banana. Minimal, if any, spice.

Very malty nose. Surprisingly sweet with citrus notes in flavor. Minimal bitterness but some floral hop notes. Quite good and somewhat unexpected fruitiness for a dunkelweizen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thick white head while cloudy amber color in beer. To the nose is ripe banana bread with baking spice. The taste is a sweet malty with lingering taste of banana at the end.

On tap at Hopmonk. Cloudy brown pour with a thick white head. Aroma is bready, biscuity, some hef notes. Yeasty. Flavor is pretty not good. Biscuity, weirdly metallic, lots of pennies. Sweet and malty. A little to sweet. Not very good.

This beer has a very sweet aroma. It is a dark cloudy brown. It is very light tasting for such a dark beer and has a banana bread flavor. You can really taste the hef notes from the yeast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very interesting beer! Tasty! Pours a really nice cloudy orange, with a white head. Smells lightly of bananas and pepper. Taste is pure bananas,creamy, tropical fruit, malty. Banana aftertaste. Very good and different. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Huge raisin and grapy taste. Dark reddish amber pour with a ton of white head. Pretty good but big ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
