4.5/5 rDev +17.8%
Served cold on tap in glass beer snifter
A) Cloudy, swampy mixture with lots of effervescent fizz. Soft off white head settles slowly into lacy white cap. Looks outstanding.
S) Sweet banana, orange-citrus, mild clove, baked bread, mild esters.
T) Absolutely delicious. It's all there -- Sweet caramel, cooked dark fruit, banana & orange zest, coriander. Very complex, classic dunkelweizen with mild hops.
M) Ample effervescent carbonation that lasts and lasts. Smooth finish, no bitter aftertaste
O) Outstanding example of the dunkelweizen category. I'd really like to fill my fridge with this stuff. Only draw back is it's very tough to find and only available on tap.

The brewery call this a dunkelroggenweizenbock. Roggenbier would be its closest comparative style, I suppose, though this one was fermented with hefeweizen yeast.
Deep, cloudy mahogany hue. The head is expansive, growing to a robust two fingers of sand-colored froth. Good retention.
Banana and clove are both apparent in the aroma, the former in greater abundance than the latter. Beneath we have caramel, almond, bread crust, apple. Reminds me of a German bakery.
The flavor is more subdued in terms of fruitiness, and the sharp aspect of the rye is more apparent here. A flash of orange peel (interesting) before subtle, funky red grape and bread crust.
Creamy medium body; soft, massaging bubbles. A lingering rye tanginess and some bitterness after each sip.
A pretty delightful beverage. One of my favorites to come out of Goose Island in a while.
