COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dunkelweizen translates into "dark wheat" and the beer is a darker version of the Bavarian wheat beers of the 15th century. Dark amber brown in color, this unfiltered ale is brewed with traditional Bavarian yeast, which imparts a wide spectrum of flavors and aromas from spicy clove and nutmeg to tropical fruit and banana. The result is a beer that is complex and flavorful, medium-bodied with a crisp finish.

Not to knock this particular beer but I don’t think I like this style. Got it in a sampler pack and only drank 1 of 2. Had a sour taste.

Fresh bottle to a pint glass. Pours a hazy amber with a thin off white head and ok lacing. Aroma is wheat, brown sugar, banana, clove, and orange. Taste is banana, wheat, lemon peel, clove, and nutmeg. The finish is banana and clove. Mouthfeel is thin and drinkable. I couldn’t have more than 2 however, the banana is almost overpowering.

Bottle. Clear, light copper color, thin head. High carbonation, lighter body, rich malt with some spice. Enjoyable beer of this style.

Pours hazy amber into a Sam glass. White head with excellent retention recedes leaving sheet lacing to coat surface. Banana and clove aromas. Sweet dark caramel and bananas flambe upfront turning dry in the spiced nutmeg and clove finish.

Bottle into Sam Adams glass. A: wheaty, with a hint of sweet malt App: light golden-brown hue with creamy colored, 4 finger, frothy head. T: slight malt sweetness with big wheaty taste. Aftertaste of bitter wheat P: smooth with big bubbles. An average U.S. interpretation of a Dunkelweis

Pours medium brown with an large off white head. Good amount of carbonation to maintain the head. Yeasty Banana aroma with nutmeg spice. Medium crisp taste on the first drink and notes of fruit. Finishes thin.

Deep copper color. Aroma is over-ripe bananas and oatmeal. Taste is shockingly bad; this is second tasting, could not even finish either time. Perhaps this style eludes me, but I am shocked at the poor taste of this offering from SA.

Frothmeister (799) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange brown with a light brown head. A big nose of concord grape, honey, alcohol, dried fruit, and yeast. The taste has surprising sour undertones, slightly watery, yeast, banana, and some faint citrus, alcohol, tart summer apples, and kind of a sweet & sour sauce thing too. The Samuel Adams Autumn Sampler was a damn good buy. Pick one up if it’s still out.

GnarlyGnome (770) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle: pours a beautiful hazy copper color, with a nice tan head. Aromas are sour yeasty bananas. The flavor is that wonderful banana clove that I love. It's a good beer, not the best dunkelwiezen that I have ever had, but its good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
