3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours an opaque honey. Aroma of clove, nutmeg, banana, toasted grain. Flavor is spicy, clove, banana, peat, wheat, caramel. A pretty good dunkelweizen that comes out strong but finishes light.
12oz can from Wegmans, West Seneca. A slightly hazy golden amber pour with a tight cream head; arom a of wheat, yeast, spice and cloves; soft in the mouth with gentle spices and caramel, and then a touch of spice & banana to finish. Much lighter in colour than a German Dunkel, but otherwise true to style. Onslow (1540) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 7, 2017
Pour from a 12oz can - fall canned beers collection. Clear medium brown brew with tan head. Very engaging aroma of fruit, banana, clove, coriander - very much in the wit / wheat family. Taste is mildly sweet up front with rich fruity notes, some tartness with clove, banana and fruit. Finishes with a sour / tart fruit taste, though weakens somewhat at the very end where I would look for a flourish of taste. Palate is average verging on thin.

Sweet, spicy, bready. Taste kinda like a Christmas season beer a so seems a little early. BlackBeerPG (981) - Darien, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2017
Taste: crisp, spiced malt, dark bread, wheat, hint of sweet. Same with the nose. Copper hue, slight haze, big foamy head some lace. Full body. Would pair excellent with brats. gripweed57 (2979) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2017
From old tasting notes. Labeled as "Samuel Adams Dark Wheat". Translucent reddish brown color. Tan head. Fragrant coffeeish aroma. Spicy chocolate malt flavor. Bittersweet hop finish. Uncharacteristic of the style, yet tasty.

Hazed amber pour with light tan head. Aroma is dried fruit, molasses, and nutmeg. Flavor is sweet brown sugar start with a lite dry finish. Jus a tad fizzy but a pretty nice beer BelgianBeerGal (4256) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle from a multi-pack. Clear chestnut color with a bubbly tan head that lasts quite awhile. Big banana in the aroma with some sweet caramel. Flavor is slightly sweet plantains with cloves but a little muddled overall. Meh. ttoadee (1665) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Light brown pour, 2 fingers off white. Nose is esters & yeast. Sweet. Middle is bubblegum and dark wheat, roasted grain. Finish is bittersweet, yeasty. Little flat. IslandHaole (1301) - Misawa, JAPAN - OCT 11, 2015
Caramel, Toffee, biscuits, light floral & spice. Clear orange with a foamy tan head. Certainly has the right yeast as the banana/clove flavor of typical Weizens/Wits is the dominant flavor. Mouthfeel is appropriate for the style. Not a bad effort by SA. Lemke10 (996) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 10, 2015
This pours a medium brown color with a slight head. The aroma is slightly malty. The taste has some sour elements to it mixed with clove, spices, and fruits. The taste is rather interesting from a style you don’t see too many people attempt. A well made dark wheat beer!
