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.

"the clove spiciness and the banana fruitiness are done pretty well, though theres not quite as much difference from a tradition hefe (besides the color) to get very excited. ok brew, though, and a style I like."

Growler from Whole Foods. Clove, banana, and toffee malt aroma. Minimally hazy chestnut brown color with large head. Sweet orange/banana, strong clove and light toffee malt flavor. Spicy - overall a nice beer.

daknole (11010) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 12, 2009
sample bottle from aplusbreaks. Brown pour with a medium tan head. A very malty nose with hints of caramel and some yeast. The nose has held up well considering the age of the bottle. The flavor is really pretty good. I would imagine this was very good when fresh. Very malty and some fruit notes with some faint spices. Nice.

Tap @ Flying Saucer KC. Orange brown appearance with a cream colored head. Dark wheat, banana, clove, fairly typical, notable nose. Dark malty, huge banana, clove, somewhat spicy, wheat malty flavor. The banana and clove notes are in overdrive but I still enjoy the beer.

DocLock (10480) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle from Harvest collection variety package. Pours hazy brown with off-khaki head. Nose is malt, spicy hops, earthy brown sugar, mild banana. Tastes malty, a bit sweet up front, with earthy nuts, spice, and banana. Pretty complex, and better than I expected.

alexsdad06 (9965) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2009
12 oz. bottle w/ Sample B. Pours brown with a small diminishing beige head. The aroma was malty, fruity (dark varieties, bananas), slightly nutty, yeast, and a hint of spice. The flavor has a nice malt rich malt base with the dark fruits, banana, yeast, caramel, and spices coming through as well. Medium bodied and smooth drinking.

arminjewell (9574) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks Jay! Dark brownish bred pour with white head, aroma brought notes of banana, clove, biscuit, caramel, toffee, hints of earth and grassy notes. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, some nice banana, clove, touch of grass and earth, slightly watery finish with a hint of sweetness.

drowland (8490) - Georgia, USA - NOV 6, 2012
11/6/12. 12oz bottle from Publix. Barely hazy deep amber pour with a small khaki head that cuts in half and sticks in a small ring and laces in spotty sheets. Big banana and fruitiness in the aroma with touches of cream, caramel, and spice. The flavor shows a ton of banana, bubblegum, and fruit again with hints of spice, caramel, and metal. Not bad, actually.
