I have had this a few times and always enjoy it.

Color is darker than a traditional hefe, which makes sense because of the name.

Flavors of caramel, wheat, chocolate, cloves, and bananas. Basically a hefe meets a brown ale. Some bubblegum flavors as well.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Medium bodied.

Overall, fun take on the style. I'd easily drink this again.

On tap at Muddy Waters in Minneapolis, MN. Served in a standard shaker glass.

Appearance: Color is a dark brownish black with a hint of ruby. Moderate amount of bubbles and about one finger of light tan head that quickly fades into a creamy patch. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.

Smell: A fruity and dark wheat driven aroma with sweet malt and spices. Upfront wheat presence along with roasted malt. Hints of Hefeweizen yeast, straw, chocolate, caramel, toffee, grains, and biscuit. Sweet hints of sugar. Huge aroma of fresh bananas and bubblegum. Hints of clove spice as well as some cinnamon and coriander. Hop presence is pretty light. A pretty good yeasty aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a good yeast and wheat driven taste with notes of fruit, dark malt, and spice. Upfront presence of wheat and Hefeweizen yeast with notes of straw, grains, and biscuit. Dark roasted malt with notes of sweet chocolate, caramel, toffee, and nuts along with some sugar. Big taste of ripe bananas and bubblegum. Subtle spice mix of clove, cinnamon, and coriander. Light presence of hops in the background. A very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very creamy, silky, and smooth.

Overall: A very good and interesting twist on a Dunkelweizen. Very good Hef like presence of bananas and bubblegum with a nice sweet presence of chocolate.
