tap at piece.... dark caramel brown pour with a soapy slightly off-white head.... aroma of dark fruits and a heap load of bananas as well as some wheat.... flavors of sweet bready malt and bananas. good flavors with a lively and medium full mouthfeel. jbean (110) - Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Tap at brewpub. Beautiful hazy brown color and head. Aroma and flavor are bready and wheaty, with banana, and some clove. Delicious. fiulijn (20427) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2007
Draught at the brewpubWickerBrew (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2007
Muddy light amber color. Nice banana aroma. Medium body, some malt flavor, light spices and some banana. Balanced and good.
I always say that I am not a wheat beer fan, but every now and then I give in to one and find myself happy. This beer made me happy. It looks great in that hefe glass, with the light head that sticks around and swirls as you tip the glass back. Very smooth, anyone can enjoy this, I even had a couple. dball1869 (16) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 18, 2007
tasted at the brewpub with a garlicky pizza. fluffy in your mouth with tons of banana scent. good, subdued wheat flavor. a phenolic masterpiece.

Tap. Not for me. Tastes like banana runts and malt dissolved in club soda. I guess I can see that it’s tasty. Looks nice though. Terminus (3680) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2007
tap at the repeal prohibition festival at Schalfly. hazy brown with a soapy tan head. ripe banana on the nose with some spices, brown sugar and light chocolate. realy yeasty but not in a bad way. just more than expected. the flavors really didn’t match the nose well. lots of dirty yeast and banana flavors here with a huge long banana finish. a touch of smoke as well on the finish. not bad, but not what everybody was raving about a few months ago. sersdf (1020) - chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2007
underrated. this is a good wheat. it actually would have been a hefeweizen but it was a little bit dark. definitely didn’t have the maltiness i would demand in a dunkelweizen or a weizenbock. served in a 22oz glass, this was not particluarly dark or particularly opaque for a dunkelweiss (as stated by the brewer itself). i got a ton of bananas in the aroma and some cloves in the head itself. the flavor was largely fermented bananas, whatever that means. the body was pretty large, and it was overall pretty good. i wish i had a top heavy to put next to it, but i’d say this was pretty similar, but not quite up to par with its style as that interpretation. at the brewery it was simply called Dunkel Weiss. is this the same beer? vyvvy (6400) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 13, 2007
Sampled at Schlafly’s Repeal of Prohibition Fest along with Beerdrenched. Pours cloudy brown / bronze with a tannish head. The aroma dark banana and vanilla with creme and meringue. Medium body with medium / sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with dark banana esters with a good amount of spice. The finish adds a bit smoke. A nice and unique dunkelweizen. jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2007
From the tap, sampled at the Schlafly "Repeal Of Prohibition" festival in the commemorative glass. This was a really nice dunkelweizen, clove, banana and bubblegum, sweet malts, caramel and toffee, very easy drinkability, just another well made brew from the Piece.
