COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep amber brown with a dense off-white head, Dunkelweiss 30 rediscovers Hefeweiss beers through a Belgian brewers lens. Envisioned by our own Matty Smooth Gilliland, this beer opens with sweet clove and banana notes that give way to a chocolaty warm finish with a peppery tingle across the palate. I thought it would be fun to make a German wheat beer; weve explored the Belgian wheats pretty thoroughly, said Gilliland. Since this is Lips of Faith and part of what makes that program fun is to make beers that are really unique and different making a big, strong, dark Weiss beer sounded pretty folly-licious. Itll still showcase all of the flavors that a Hefeweiss beer would have, but add in the burly body and extra punch. Think of it as a Grand Cru dunkelweiss.

A brown body with an off-white head and some lacing. An aroma of yeast, banana, colve, and vanilla. The flavor is strong on the yeast and clove with a banana finish and a nice mouthfeel.

jeff789 (1408) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2011
really dark mahogany, nice lacing, nice tan head, good retention.... banana, clove, lightly sour, a little roasty, somewhat fruity, ... not overly carbonated at all, medium bodied, a little watery almost for the abv... i really expected a little more out of this... lightly roasty, big banana clove combo, a little wheaty, i was hoping for a touch of the sour note i smelled, light wateriness detracts from the flavor a bit... as it warms, it becomes more and more full bodied...

oakbluff (444) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 22, 2011
Bomber sample- dark cola with good clarity, two finger head with fizzy soapy lacing. Nose- very strong clove, banana, caramel. Taste- molasses, black pepper, and spice. Body is thin for style and overcarbonated.

nazbotica (16) - Missouri, USA - OCT 5, 2011
This beer is rich, smooth and creamy. It has a nice estery flavor of banana with a little roast and a soapy, sudsy finish from the yeast. The body is medium to full with a chalky texter from the floating yeast.

scoth (671) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Pours dark chestnut brown, with a lasting foamy tan head, very fine lacing. Medium body, smooth, zesty, and crisp. Rich aroma of banana bread, toffee, nuts, pepper, and clove. Medium sweet, some peppery notes, the barest hint of citrus tartness, and a mild bitter finish. A little on the sweet side, but very drinkable.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Poured into a weizen glass. Pretty sure the ABV puts this into the weizenbock category. 4.0 A: Clearish deep amber/light brown color. Three fingers of beige creamy/frothy hybrid head. Average retention overall, but the last quarter inch sticks around for a while. Lots of irregularly placed lacing. 4.5 S: Big hit of banana and clove with pepper underneath. Good bit of roasty toastiness and I swear Im picking up hints of bacon. Raw cocoa and some caramel. Very nice here. 4.0 T: Again tons of banana, clove, and pepper. More chocolaty than the nose suggested with about the same amount of caramel. Lightly roasty and toasty. Lightly boozy. The taste is good, but as of right now the flavors dont mesh seamlessly together, at least not yet. 4.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good carbonation for the style with plenty of spritiness to it. Very creamy, though could be a bit smoother. 4.0 D: Pretty good beer. I think after a couple years this could be a hell of a beer. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-28-2011 17:40:42

thirdeye11 (6114) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2011
(22oz bomber) rich ruby/medium brown with lasting tan creamy head. Nose of cinnamon, dark wheat, cinnamon roll, and sweet malts. Taste of dry wheat, clove, mild banana, very light bubblegum flavors. Nice linger of spices, and a well carbonated beer in general.
