Bottle from Mike.
This was poured into a weizen glass.
The appearance was a milky soft brown color with a foamy finger and a half’s worth of head. Mild lace, somewhat messy, sliding.
The aroma had some toast, light clove, some white bread, even lighter banana esters. Milk chocolate with a little bit of caramel at the very end.
The flavor blended the banana sweetness to the clove somewhat sweet with spicy under touches. Light bubblegum. Nice aftertaste of the bubblegum, wheat and caramel. Quick toast-like to bubblegum sort of sweet finish.
The feel was between light and medium bodied with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fairly light. ABV felt appropriate. No wheat kick as I usually expect that from the style. Semi-smooth along my tongue.
Overall, mostly nice dunkelweizen, seemed aged to me, but I can’t argue because I don’t get to try a lot of this style given where I currently live. tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2015 Tap @ Kuhnhenn: Semi-murky chestnut brown pour with a soapy, bubbly khaki film across the top, settling to a mild collar. Aroma of old banana bread, clove, toasted wheat, some stale toffee, & a hint of spicy yeast esters. Gives off a slightly medicinal, phenolic tone but it isn’t too overpowering. Flavor is soft, light. Banana esters, spicy yeast, clove, mild bubblegum, hints of mint, caramel, burnt toast, prune, & some faint anise. Again, a mild phenol character in the finish lends a slight medicinal vibe. Not a bad dunkelweizen, but could use a little polishing. madmitch76 (25101) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2013

Cloudy dark brown beer, small cream coloured head. Light semi dry palate. Tangy wheaty citrus, bordering on sour. Mild caramel in the background. Whisper of chocolate. Semi dry finish. Nice tangy fruits in these Kuhnhenn wheats!
Refrigerated bottle from FlandersNed poured into a weizen glass. Pours translucent medium brown with small off-white head. Little lacing, medium body, low carbonation, and tart aroma. Taste is tart lemon, banana, some roasted malt, and some caramel. AcctError96987 (3722) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Served side by side with Kuhnhenn Hefeweiss. Shared with Mike & Matt.
The beer appears a mildly hazy, mahogany shade of brown. An off-white, bordering on light tan, head measures approximately 1/4". After a few moments, the head settles to a thin wispy layer.
The aroma is far more assertive than the Hefeweiss. Banana, malt, light spices, sweet bread, sugar.
The flavor is nice and enjoyable. Plenty of banana presence. Akin to banana bread. Sweet, but not too. Nice notes of bread and brown sugar.
Thin to medium bodied, with adequate carbonation. Alcohol presence a non factor.
Overall, a decent brew, though still short of the high marks set by the authentic German examples of the style.

Bottle. Sour wheat malt, funky yeasty aroma. Hazy brown with a minimal head. Sour yeasty wheat malt flavor, very citric. Light body and carbonation. shrubber85 (11508) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle. Banana, clove and lactic wheat/caramel malt aroma. Cloudy orange brown with small head. Sweet-tart lemon, banana, and toasted wheat malt flavor. Nice - not as sweet as the typical dunkelweizen. Ibrew2or3 (8743) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2012
12oz bottle picked up at one of the best beer stores around, Champane’s! It pours a mahogany sort of darkness with a light tan head floating around on the top. The aroma is all earthy and minerally and fruity with sort of wheat notes around the edges. The taste is oddly similar and a mix of dark fruits and earthiness are cut with a mild dry sort of mineral note. These notes soften a bit with a quick shot of a wheat like sensation into the finish. dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Shared by Ibrew2or3. Pours a hazy caramel color with a thin tan head. Lots of caramel and fruit in the nose. Tase is slightly tart and sweet. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Not bad. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2011
12oz bottle picked up at the brewpub. 2011 Summer Solstice. Pours a murky brown colored body with a finger-width, fizzy, tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing. Aroma is yeasty with some banana and clove as well as some band-aid. A light caramel and wheat graininess with a bit of a sourness. Flavor is similar. A bit sour up front before a thin caramel and wheat comes in. A light yeast towards the finish with a hint of banana and clove. Finishes with some band-aid and no bitterness before leaving a short aftertaste. Thin body and light carbonation. Overall, not a very good beer. Some band-aid and sourness mixing with a pretty boring flavor.
