3.93/5  rDev -2.2%

Appearance: Like every beer I drank that night, it came to me with no head at all, I had to come back to my neighborhood to a pool hall to find a proper pour. Nice color though.

Smell: Weak caramel, wheat sweetness, rum. Should have been better. Again weak head.

Taste: The taste was delicious, reminiscent of an Aventinus only a little watery, and less complex, more rum and sweet malt and not much else.

Mouthfeel: A little thin, but it's my first example of the style.

Drinkability: This is milder than the weizenbock I know and love, but flavorful, very high on the session scale.

This Dunklveizen, like Michael Jordan, DUNKED over the competition. It was spicy, dark, and bold. My girlfriend, who doesn't like beer, LIKED this one. I mean actually LIKED IT! Men, get your witches to piece pizza if you want to convince them you don't have a problem

Bottoms up!

From tap at the brewpub poured into a traditional weizen glass. Pours a cloudy light brown with a quickly disappearing head with some lace. Smells of yeast, citrus and malt. Taste is similar to the aroma but a little more wheat/yeast spice than what was found in the nose. Very fresh tasting and slightly effervescent with full body mouth feel. Too drinkable, very refreshing. I can see why this is an award winning beer.

on tap at the brewpub

appearance: served in a large dunkel glass, brunette body with a beige cap and minimal retention, rather murky

smell: dark wheats, fig, clove and banana

taste: the aromas come through strong in the flavor as well - especially the banana and clove...there are also notes of cola and honey which contribute to a silky smooth feel. its a nice drinkable dunkel, but its not 100% true to style

mouthfeel: very smooth

drinkability: filling but ok

The appearance resembled brown muddy water.

I didn't know the style when I ordered it; I picked it at random. The appearance resembled brown muddy water. The aroma was on the subtle side. It had a roasted wheat smell which showed in the flavor.

Like the aroma, the flavor had a roasted wheat/grain taste. There was a real earthy taste that floated throughout each drink. It also had an allspice flavor that lingered in the background.

Overall: loved it! It had a smooth texture that enhanced the subtly of the flavors. I would definitely have it again or take some home in a growler.

In the world of Dunkelweiss, yeast is king. I wasn't able to detect too much of the German hefe yeast that I so desired. A bit muted but a tasty beer nonetheless. The dark malts were not too pronounced, almost true to a German Warsteiner in that both are black without tasting very black at all. I was looking for a little more yeasty, dark malt, wheatiness from this beer. An appoachable beer for the style.

Piece Brewery Dark-n-Curvy Dunkelweizen served on tap

Appearance: Small head with good lacing. Dark brown and cloudy.

There is a subdued wheat smell, but the taste contains a much greater wheat flavor. There is also a slight nut flavor in the malts.

It's a good dark wheat to enjoy in a session.

Poured from a 64oz growler into two pint glasses. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist!

A: Settles into the glass a beautiful looking murky and cloudy golden brown. Looks like iced tea or apple cider. Small creamy head that leaves a tiny amount of lace.

S: Nice aromas of clove, citrus, nuts, bubblegum, banana, and (as it warms) caramel.

T: See above. The more I drink of this the more toasted malt, sweet spice, sour grain, and mild hoppiness begin to emerge.

M: Spicy, prickly, and sticky. Long lasting finish with big clove/spice/bubblegum flavors stuck right in the middle of it.

D: Sweet, spicy, and slightly tart-this is very refreshing. Heather says this is very sessionable. Come on summer!

Served in a weizen glass at the brewpub.

Just like I like my women... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sienna topped by over a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises orange zest, sweet toffee, clove, and light banana peel. The taste brings in more of the same, with a bit more clove, and hints of light black pepper, cinnamon, and vanilla bean coming in for some added complexity. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation, a sorta/kinda grainy feel, and a dry finish. Overall, a nice d-weizen, one that doesn't overdo it on the yeast character, but also maintains a nice level of spice and whatnot. Good times.

4.03/5  rDev +0.2%

Appearance: Murky brown color with a thick, mousse-like off-white head.

Smell: Cloves and fruity esters (mostly banana).

Taste: Consistent with the smell, mostly cloves and banana. The grainy flavor of the wheat nicely complements the caramel malts.

Mouthfeel & Drinkability: Medium bodied. The wheat and yeast give it a creamy fullness. A very refreshing dunkelweizen.

4.15/5  rDev +3.2%

On-tap poured into tall weizen glass.

A: Bartender was busy as hell but still managed to make two good pours into the glasses I bought. Two inches of head at the top of a tall 22 oz. weizen glass. Dark amber beer that seemed to faintly glow through the light.

S: Smell was slightly underwhelming. Not too much to talk about here...

T: No bitterness to speak of with very slight hints of cloves and bananas. Not yeasty at all, either.

M: Nice carbonation. Crisp but not too bubbly.

D: I could down three of these easily and call it a night. Great taste and not too filling. (I ate half of a huge pizza after one of these and could have ordered another beer.)

Additional Notes: Picked up a growler to-go and it almost tastes as good from a growler as it does on-tap. Good carbonation and a crisp feel.
