Bottle pour at the BevMo Holiday Beerfest held at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.
Pours a murky brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, dark fruit, and spices. Taste is much the same with a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a better smell than flavor in my opinion.

long bottle served into an oblong glass
pours this nutty brown color that leaves a tan head.
heavenly malty yeast, spice and banana in the nose
light grains, malts, clean light finish
this beer leaves a little to be desired. looks and smells wonderful but when you taste it kinda falls flat. not that its not any good just wish the flavor profile matched the look/smell

A: Poured from a bottle to a weizen glass. Had a dark brown color and a murky texture. There was a huge, creamy, long-lasting head. Good lacing.
S: A decent, but not spectacular aroma of wheat, banana, and some malt.
T: Tasted of wheat, that bubblegum quality common to wheat beers, banana, caramel, and some mild spices. The main problem with the flavor isn't the ingredients, but rather the fact that it's too thin and weak. Could have been better.
M: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth, crisp finish. Medium-bodied.
O: Definitely a wildly uneven beer. Had some good qualities, but somehow fell short.

500 mL classic German bottle,
A: Pours a cloudy brown with a firm tan head, good retention and lace. A nice looking dunkelweisse.
S: Great bready German malt with bubblegum and clove.
T: Good malt flavour, not as complex as I thought'd be from the nose. Nice clove and herbal play mid-palate, but very much a malt driven beer.
M: Medium-bodied, a tad chalky with a nice little acidity. Easy but firm carbonation.
O: The early promise of the nose was a letdown in the taste, but this is still a solid beer. The price is a problem, it's pretty much the most expensive dunkelweisse on the shelf, and it's not the best so it's hard to make it a repeat buy even though I like the beer.

a dunkelweiss that doesn't seem to turn over as often as most. Not suprised at the score for the sake of freshness. I sure to not appreciate a tanin funky hef too. Its a real shame.
This was liquid apple pie. Brown pour. Nice head. About 4 finger in hef glass. Nose of apples and hef yeast. Palate and feel is quite nice. Apples and crisp end both dry from hopping and mineral with a toasty malt note. Although once the carbonation goes its a very plain drink. First half was better than the second. And thats saying a long seeing a good hef is for the thirsty.

nice medium brown pour with a slight reddish touch to the sides yielded a nice head of off white that stuck to the sides of the glass fairly well as it trickled down. aroma is nice and earthy with touches of roasted nuts and caramel coming through as it warms. nice deep flavor, nothing over the top but nice and consistent for the style, about what i would expect from them. deep sweet malts are driven home in the finish with a long taste of caramel that really just drives it home.
