3.55/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Suspiciously clear oxblood with lumpy too-white froth. 3.5
Bubble gum, clove, and fresh soda loaf on the nose. 3.75
Flinty grain, tad of whole wheatiness, slightest toffee apple, no real yeast, grassy end. 3.5
Leafy comeback and tingly linger.
Light, fizzy, dry, slight chew. 3.5


-- Classic aroma, if nothing more. Thin, over-carbed, and I’m missing all those fruity esters. Almost a weizen with food colouring, and even then not a great one. A sub-par example of the style. 3.5

Served from 2 yr old bottle into hefe glass. I was anticipating some clumping of yeast due to being in cellar, but was fine. Pours a nice reddish brown with plenty carbonation and nice creamy head. Smell of fruitiness with banana. Tastes much like smell with some malt insets and other fruit. Fruitiness with malty biscuit following and a slight happiness bite on back end. Comes together very well with smooth feel. A very good dunkle hefe. A favorite for sure.

Inverted pour from a 16.9 oz bottle into a weizen glass.

Nice orangish-brown, kind of toffee color, appropriately cloudy. 1/2" beige head that settles after a bit. Leaves some spotty lacing. Looks good, I like the color.

Smells like overripe mashed bananas, brown sugar, a little cloves. Nice.

Taste follows suit. Overripe bananas, clove, light brown sugar/caramel. Kind of creamy. Lush wheat character. Not too malty or sweet, it actually tastes less malty than their hefeweizen to me. Caramel lingers but then it ends fairly clean.

Wheaty, creamy texture. Full bodied but not too heavy.

A solid, tasty dunkelweizen, well balanced.
