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.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2011
Bottle:   Big pillowy white head, nice lacing, dark and hazy amber.   Looks fairly decent.   Both the nose and on the tongue it has some bits of clove, banana, and spices.   More flavorful on the tongue than the nose suggests.   A little mealy, some dark pitted fruit on the exit, light, but its there.   Could stand to be a bit heavier, but as is its fairly moderate.   Better than I expected.   Thanks for the bottle Bill!

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2012 Decent bananas and dark bread aroma and flavor with a tart finish. Not as robust as the German examples of the style but this cleans up well.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightyl hazy light brown body with a small fizzy off white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is pretty decent, slightly husky and earthy with some light esters of banana. The flavor is a bit thin though, not enough yeastiness or body. The finish is laced with banana and clove. Light to medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. This one isn’t the best.

Patrickctenchi (6593) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle: Pours clear copper with a creamy tan head. Banana bread aroma. Taste is toffee malt, banana, sweet yeast, Good solid banana tones throughout. It’s light, but it certainly is pleasant.

blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2009
bottle, foamy light amber pour, sweet fruit and cardboard aroma, sour, wheaty flavors, medium finish

Pailhead (6540) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - AUG 1, 2011
On tap: The aroma consists of banana, bubblegum, light caramel, and a touch of roast. It’s a hazy brownish-orange with a small off-white head that quickly settles to a thin film. The flavor starts with moderate banana, caramel, and a touch of chocolate. The finish has a light wheaty tanginess and a touch of roast. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, I love wheat beers and this is a pretty tasty Weizenbock.

ben4321 (6514) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Location: 12 oz bottle from Gilly’s, 8/26/09, I made them crack open the Harvest pack into singles so I could buy 1 of these without having to get the whole 12 pack

Aroma: Wheat, lemon, banana, clove, mild spice
Appearance: Slightly hazy orange-amber color, fluffy white head
Flavor: Spice, malty wheat, bready and citrus flavors blend alright with the spice
Palate: Light to medium in body, pretty fizzy, drinkable, smooth
Overall Impression: You know, this beer is alright, but it certainly isn’t great. It is a little light on flavor and character for me, though it appears that others liked it more then I did.

**Just submitted a Photo for this one as well, as it was missing one.

vyvvy (6486) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Pours clear amber with a dense beige head. The aroma has candied bananas, clove, cotton candy and dark wheatiness. It has a medium / full body that’s pretty rich and has fairly sharp carbonation for the style. The flavor starts with rich wheat, caramel, light banana, toffee and pepper. The finish adds clove and some wheaty sweetness. Decent dunkelweizen.

Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2009
I liked this more than I expected. Reddish brown, decent sized loose, spongey head. I got some rye, some banana, some toasty aromas, and the flaor was more rye. Nice and clean, no "off" flavors to speak of. Tasty. Sampled at lithy’s Septemberfest.

Boutip (6392) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear amber color dunkel with a large foamy had with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of banana cake ester are pretty strong with light sweet notes and some what malt. Taste is a good mix between banana bread ester with light cloves and some light wheat malt notes also discernable. Body is a bit light for the style with good carbonation. Nice work on the yeast strain with huge ester but lacking body and malt profile is a bit weak for the style.
