COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With its amber-mahogany coloring and streaked with fine top-fermented yeast, this beer has a fine, persistent head that adheres well to the glass. It is pleasantly fruity with a typical top-fermented smell, an aroma of clove and nutmeg apple tantalizes the nose. On the tongue it is fresh, clean, full-bodied, harmonious and well-balanced. It finishes with a light, delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a sour impression.

muddy and brown. yeasty aroma with a bit o’ sweetness. flavor is of yeasty apricot bread and apple pie spices.

3.3
Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Dark color for a weisee. Ample foam covering the deep tawny body. Moderately aromatic with the usual Weisse descriptors. Flavor is fairly good, could be richer and more complex. It’s no Weihenstephaner, but it’s a fine, high quality brew.

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2008 Pours an amberish colour with a huge beige head. The aroma is yeasty, and a tiny bit of malts. The flavour is a very yeasty, quite tasty, with minor hints of some spices, and nutmeg/cinnamon. This is the only darker coloured Hefe I’ve ever had, so it’s a tad different to me, but it still seems good. Not as much banana and clove as I would like, but still enjoyable.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - JUL 17, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2007 Looks pretty much as muddy horrible as dunkelweizens often do, yet somehow appealing. Esters, but there’s also very nice crispy bitterness. Not as fruity as I remembed and what the nose gives away. Goodie.

thegreenrooster (4402) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Pour is a muddy looking brown with a large white head. Aroma is clove and spice. flavor is somewhat lacking the needed kick. Some clove and banana show up but nothing coming out to assert its self. Still this is just an ok beer. Maybe my bottle was old and wil have to revist.

3.1
jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Pours murky orange hued light brown with a large foamy tan head. Aromas of earthy wheat, light fruity banana, a bit of apple vinegar, and just a faint undertone of hops. Toasty grains upfront, with just a hint of banana, a light nutmeg undertone throughout, and a faint sour note in the finish. Palate is light, almost sharply effervescent, with a bit of semi-sweet/sour fruit, and lingering spice. Definitely a good intro for me to a Dunkelweizen (at least I think this is the first Dunkel I’ve had). Flavorful, balanced, and steered pretty clear of most of what I don’t usually enjoy in wheat brews.

Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Courtesy of Wild Oats. Poured 1 inch of fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Displayed an ultra-murky tan hue. Strong nose of wheat. Tastes of wheat, earth, dried toast, and malt. Very high carbonation and thin body with a fickle mouth-feel. Nice.

3.2
pforei (338) - USA - JUL 9, 2007
25 oz. bottle. Belgian Tumbler glass, (heehee). Rich dark color. Nice aroma of wheat, fruit, and spice. Banana malt and faint hops. Sweet, sour, and spicy with thinnish but soft palate.

3.5
screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2007
Has a very hazy orange-brown body. The head is creamy white. Aroma is citrus and pineapple. Flavor brings fruits, banana, sweet malt and the mouthfeel is big.
