look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Purchased a growler yesterday afternoon and shared last night with a couple of friends. Review written from notes. My first of the style.

Poured into weizen glass. 2 inches of solid head. color is a murky light brown. hazy.

smell is strong out of the growler but weaker from the beer in my glass and gets weaker as time passes. i get banana, clove, citrus, and sugary malt with some "yeasty"/earthy smells as well.

taste is extension of the aroma but better and of course stronger.

mouth feel is smooth with slightly above medium body. despite the good body to this beer it doesn't seem to take up much stomach space. i ate alot while drinking probably about 24 oz. the taste is delicious but possibly easy to over power with food. for piece, this is a win. and for the style, I'm going to have to try more of these but i think i'm a fan.

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!

3.89/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours from the growler a medium amber/brown body, moderately hazed, with an off-white head.

Smell: Malty notes of chocolate, caramel, and toast followed fast by a salvo of cloves, with soft fruity tones closing it out.

Taste: Darkened grains glazed with sweetish caramel and a thin coating of chocolate. Growing phenolic clove accent. Fruity touches of raisins, apple, and 'nanas. Light herbal hops, medium-low bitterness. For a moment it seems like a late-breaking kick of malts my be pending, but, it remains earthy, drying into the finish with cloves and pepper-dusted banana slices at the tail end.

Mouthfeel: Just a hair over medium-bodied and just a bit above medium carbonation.

Overall: A very solid dunkelweizen.

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.

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.
