copper, fizzy off-white head.
aroma, strong wheat nose, and plenty of cloves, yeasty and banana.
flavors, experiment went a little wrong here, just overly grainy/wheat, way too much spices/cloves. Keeps a malty, yeasty and banana profile that is hindered by too much wheat but it all crumbles very quickly. Picked up some possible vanilla sweetness. freekyp (2470) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2010
An easy drinking dunkelweisse with an appealing aroma redolent with banana and sweet malty notes. A bit of spicy clove character seeps in. Pours a deep reddish brown with a two finger tan head. Lacing is minimal. The flavor mirrors the aroma with a well balanced finish that shows tart maltiness and a bit of bitterness. Aroma hops are minimal. Well done. rcasta (874) - EL SALVADOR - APR 18, 2010
buenas las birrias de trigo, especialmente oscuras. son una buena combinacion. esta es tipo alemana mybrainhurts (400) - North Dakota, USA - APR 12, 2010
Aroma of yeast, candy sugar, bananas, and spices. Flavors of dark malts, fruits, brown sugar, and wheat. A tad cloying and a touch sour at the finish. Mouthfeel is thin and not at all refreshing. This doesn’t really work for me. garrison (812) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2010
Feh...it’s a decent shot at the dtyle by A-G, but it doesn’t hit the bullseye, as the brew is watery and weak, especially in the traditional dunkelweisse esters and flavor complexity.

Bottle; poured a caramel/amber colro with an average off white head. Aroma was subdued; banana, caramel, wheat; a little bit something off about it, but still ok. Pretty thin, and flavor was just ok. Not really a depth of flavors. Pretty sweet, banana, fruit, yeast; rather flat finish, but the after taste was enjoyable. Gotta be one of their better offerings, but overall it was a bit below average. loveamberbock (19) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - MAR 12, 2010
pours yellow-red, nose of banana and clove same palate, very bitter aftertaste, one would think that with the technology, experience, and money of inbev, they could definately and would get this right, sad excuse to sell to a broader market, ultimately not worth a second try by me! phaleslu (10913) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2010
12 oz. bottle at a friend’s house. Not sure where he got it. I was in the St. Louis area, and I’m sure it’s widely available there and most other markets. Pours a clear brown color with a finger-thick beige head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of caramel malts, banana, wheat, yeast, and clove. Flavor follows suit faithfully, with some nuttiness and brown sugar. Light-bodied, with mild carbonation. I’m not a huge fan of this overall, and I’ve had some good dunkelweizens in the past, but I have to say it’s good for an A-B product. stef92 (129) - Williamstown, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2010
This is Michelob? Bought a 12-pack of their sampler and this was a pleasant surpise. Poured a deep dark caramel color with a nice thick head. Malty aroma with a smooth mouthfeel. Caramel, yeast, wheat, malt flavors all come through. Nice beer. BrewingFan (251) - Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2010
I completely underestimated this beer. Very nice banana and clove aroma, almost shocking (AB product). Very smooth the yeast stands out almost as much in taste as it does in aroma. The palate is a little thin, but is medium bodied and has a nice yeast kick in that wraps up the finish. Best AB product I have ever had!
