Draft. Pours brown with a beige head. Bready and lightly toasted malts, some caramel, and a mild generic fruity and banana-ish notes. Good stuff. derA (91) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 22, 2017
tap @ tap & bottle: There seems to bit a little bit of confusion as to the style of the beer since both Untappd and the bar label it a Dunkelweizen instead of a Dunkel? This is understandable since it’s really on the edge combining the two styles. Nose has ample smoked clove, some banana but not as strong as many of the good German Dunkelweizen. Taste is as sweet as most Dunkel but also has enough body to be taken as a Weizen. Finish is refreshingly clean, lingering taste of clove, caramel, some roast. Overall quite a nice drinker although it reaches my maximum for sweetness tolerance for a 5.0% abv beer with otherwise medium body. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2016
On tap taster at Pizza Port in Carlsbad, CA.
Not clear, but certainly not opaque with a thin khaki head and fair lacing.
Aroma of toffee, banana, wheat, cloves and light fruit.
Taste of toffee, banana, cloves, wheat, cinnamon and light fruit.
Medium/light body and medium/low carbonization.
Not much to look at and the mouthfeel is thin, but the taste and aroma are nice.

On tap at PP Ocean Beach. It pours a deep mahogany color with a small off white head. The aroma is cherry syrup, toast, molasses and raisins. Very strong. The flavor is very fruity with some raisin, pear, toast and lighter notes of cherry. Thin to medium bodied. Pretty brash and heavy handed for the style, without any perceptible bitterness thankfully.

(Ocean Beach): Belle corpulence chargée d’amidon de blé et une tendance forte bananesque en font une bière à la personnalité richissime. Je m’attendais à une Dunkel mais c’est clairement une Dunkelweizen. slowrunner77 (12147) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"Conforms pretty well to the traditional style. Light in body and a little dry. Ripe fruits, a hint of spice and chocolate. Not too complex, but pretty tasty." anders37 (26726) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2014
