Town Hall Dark Krystal, filtered dunkel wizen. Purchases last Wednesday at Town Hall, with a "best by" date of 11/27. That's today! Let's drink some.

Clear, dark mahogany hue, nearly crimson, very small head whittles down to nil.

Soft banana in the nose, slight cocoa. "Muted" is their word, and it's the best one. What would be bursting out in an unfiltered version is playing it nice and cool. Minor amounts of clove.

Taste: Smooth on the palate, light-medium bodied, small, but fruity finish. Ends a little dry, sharp, succinct. The only problem is, is that I'm missing what I want from a dunkel wizen. I need the yeast flavors. Got to have them. If I know they 're not there, and they should be, I keep on wishing for them. Very clean, snappy, nice and drinkable. Ain't nothing wrong with it….except for all the things I wish it was.

Brewery Summary:"Brewed in the same fashion as a Dunkelweizen. Light banana, clove, and chocolate characters. But we filtered this beer to give it a very bright and Krystal look. Smooth, refreshing, and a great body."

A-Cherrywood colored...light tan head...

S-Sweetish but clean...some banana, milk chocolate, and caramel/toffee

T-This is fantastic...I love Dunkelweizens and this is a cleaner, almost lager like version...nice flavors of cocoa dusted banana's drizzled with caramel....but slightly less assertive than a regular DW....I hate saying less assertive because this is really tasty but it is just a cleaner, lagerish type feel to the flavor...

M-Clean, easy drinking, light side of medium bodied....this is tasty and easy drinking...

O-Wow...this is a hell of a beer. I did not think I would like it this much...drinks a bit like a dunkelweizen that was lagered as a bock or something....great beer....Town Hall continues to impress...all these new places pop up but this place continues to not only put out the big beers but top notch subtle beers like this...
