Alabama

3.7/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

My first dunkel weizen. I was shocked when i realized recently that there was a an entire style of beer available in Alabama that i had never tried. So, i set out to remedy that oversight and i bought this example from Tucher yesterday at Bruno's and enjoyed it last night.

500ml brown bottle. I can't discern any date anywhere. I suspect this one may be a little on the old side because craft beer doesn't move very fast through most grocery stores around here. And it was the last one on the shelf.

I was surprised that it wasn't darker. I expected something akin to a porter, but it was more of an English brown ale color. With plenty of yeast. I made sure to stir up the yeast in the bottle and pour it into the glass for a nice cloudiness.

Flavor was good and pretty much what i had expected: typical German hefeweizen flavors with added maltiness from the darker grains. A little biscuityness in there. Clove. Spices. Everything kind of mellowed and became less pronounced as i made my way through the glass.

Very pleasant, but i could tell it wasn't uber fresh. Would love to be able to make it to Germany someday and try one of these on tap close to the brewery.

3.84/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
