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.

I was able to try a few samples of this Samuel Adams Dunkelweizen at the Boston Beer Company Brewery in Jamaca Plain section of Boston. This beer is in a promotional contest finals vs Samuel Adams Irish Red Ale. Both started off in a home brewing contest and the winner will be mass brew-duced in their Brewmaster collection. I was a little disappointed in this. When paired with the other beer i thought i was going to like this beer better just because it was darker. Almost a stout color. But the flavor did not live up to the color. Fresh tasting, but the spiceness didn’t impress me. I’m sure others will like this more than me, but i think i different combination or amounts of the spices and flavors they used would make this better.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle. Appearance: Hazy amber with a small, foamy, off-white head. The head is gone in seconds. Aroma: Wheat and wet dog. Definitely some spice in there too. Taste: Clove, wheat notes, and perhaps a touch of banana. I was actually expecting a little more flavorwise. A little on the watery side in my mind. Palate: Medium-high carbonation with a medium-light mouthfeel and a medium-short, wheaty finish. Overall: Tough to call on this one. Not terrible, just nothing worth remembering either. I would say skip it.

Pours to a large tan head and has an amber appearence. The flavor is strong, but not over powering. It goes down smooth enough and doesn’t leave an aftertaste.

Hazy amber with a small, foamy, off-white head. Aroma: Wheat and clove. Definitely some fruit as well. Flavor was of clove, wheat notes, and perhaps a touch of banana. The palate was a bit thin, but had a decent mouthfeel. Not a bad brew.

Smooth and refreshing, but lacks complexity I look for in a traditional german beer. Aroma was weak, with hints of clove and malt. Smooth, yet a bit on the watery side.

KajII (801) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Bottle. Poured a medium brown in color with a small head that diminished rapidly with virtually no lacing. The aroma was that of cloves and raisins with the scent of grainy malts and an earthy yeast odor. It tasted a little acidic and sweet with a mild bitter aftertaste that only lasted a little while. Mouthfeel was smooth, dry and medium bodied. Overall a tasty but average brew.

Pours a hazy copper color. Nice 2 finger white head. Aroma is wheat and malt. It tastes like a roasted wheat beer. Exactly what it is. Nothing fantastic here.

vikingguy (1106) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Pours a red-amber color. Fruity malt aroma. Taste has notes of wheat, banana, clove, dark fruit. Tart and fruity on the palate. Not a big fan of dunkels, but this is respectable.

Light amber. Aroma of wheat and caramel malt. Malty banana esters, some bitterness on the back end. Pretty uninteresting.

Bottle poured a clear amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of wheat, carmel, yeast, clove, cinnamon and banana. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of wheat, carmel, light spice and light banana with a smooth lingering spiced finish.
