3.6/5  rDev -6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a .5L brown bottle

Pours a nice dark brown color. Very nice head and decent lacing. This one has some nice sediment in the bottle which takes some swirling to get loose.

Aroma is nice, typical for the style. Lots of yeast, wheat, banana and cloves. Also some very faint bubble gum smells coming through.

Taste is good. Some nice wheat flavors in there, slight banana flavor. Yeast is present too. Also has some roasted/toasted malt flavor which is more pronounced then the other flavors. Good mouthfeel, a bit dry. Overall not bad. Would recommend it.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a Weizen glass.

A - Pours a very murky, muddy water brown, with copper highlights. Two-fingers of white head, which dissipated quickly. Little lacing.

S - Mild aroma of banana, clove, and baked bread.

T - Definite Hefe banana/clove elements. Bready malts present themselves in the mid-palate lending a hint of gingerbread. Just enough German yeast funk to make things interesting. Some mineral salts in the finish. Tasty.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Wet, soda-like finish.

O - A solid Dunkelweizen. Maybe not the best...but it's up there.

3.61/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into my tulip glass... mahogany tones with a full finger of white head. Didn't last long. The aroma had some banana, spice (nutmeg?), and a bit if a bready/yeasty note. The tastes were in line with the aroma, and I mentioned at least once or twice that it had some of the same taste profiles as a banana-nut bread... and again, a hint of spice. Good carbonation and a smooth overall mouthfeel to this brew. Overall, I thought that this was a nice beer, nice change of pace from my go-to IPAs and stouts, and well-crafted. Quite a good deal for the big bottle at around 3 bucks. Glad to be expanding my beer horizons a bit, and this was a nice stop along the road. Try it!
