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.

12 oz bottle into dimpled mug. Bought the fall variety pack at Super I in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho. Nice Bavarian aroma, filled with lots of clove and a bit of roasted nut. Pours a hazy orange with a medium sized head that diminishes into a blanket of foam in a couple of minutes, leaving some nice lace. Taste is sweet, not overly so, with no bitterness and a touch of sour in the finish. Carbonation is medium to medium-high. Body is medium to full; oily texture. Overall, a very nice attempt at a true Bavarian wheat.

This was a great beer and tasted just as it should. It has a good wheat flavor, great coloring, and oh so refreshing.

Aroma is lots of cloves. Touch of mild banana. The wheat sweetness is just dry enough to avoid any kind of cloying undertones. I really like the nose of this. Just oozes buttery malts.

Big fluffy head. Leaves a big sheet of lace over a cloudy orange body. Looks like a German-style beer should look.

The flavor is a lot more banana-y than the aroma would indicate. The taste is very mild, without the sour funk that some Dunkels have.

Finishes with a dry, sort of ashy feel, but with a buttery exterior. A very nice introduction to the Dunkelweizen style for those who might not be in the know. It’s a perfectly pleasant Dunkel, one that isn’t too challenging but also not too flawed.

Tap @ the brewery. This was an offbeat but wonderful dunkelweizen. Pours that wonderful deep cloudy brown color we all know so well with a smallish (for the style) brown head. Aroma is clove, banana, and a hint of black licorice. Taste is the same, with the licorice really coming out in the aftertaste. A great beer from Sam Adams.

Sam Adams has done it again. Slightly cloudy dark amber body with a thin beige head. Wonderful aroma of banana and nuts, like freshly baked banana bread. Surprisingly thick mouthfeel. Banana, nuts, caramel, and spice make up the flavor. Another winner from one of the best brewers.

The bannana and clove shine through on this beer. A wonderful medly of full bodied flavour. Very smooth as well.

Pours a hazy Copper/Light Brown with a thick tan head. The aroma has bananas, cloves and some wheat. Flavor is much like the aroma, with some fruity malts and spices. Has a moderate finish and leaves a banana taste.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8176) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Sampled on draft at Smokin’ Joe’s this beer poured a caramel-brown color with a large foamy cream colored head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was light banana, clove, a touch of citrus and moderate bread. The aroma was bitter and bready with notes of caramel, clove, a touch of banana, tart citrus and nut. The finish was long, tart, bread, caramel, citrus and clove. Fairly full bodied. Nice.

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.
