Poured in a weissen glass, with a deep amber color and cloudy look. The head is very large, three inches high, that is beige color. A yeasty and bread fragrance at the start, then blending to a strong and lasting scent of cloves. The taste starts with a hearty bread flavor, then to slightly tart citrus flavor, moving to a spicy clove taste. It all finishes with a yeasty twang flavor, that lingers on the palate for some time. A light watery feel at the front and stays that way all the way till the finish, that is when it gains a slight bit of weight. The palate is left with a clean dry finish. A classic, nothing more to say. The aroma is spicy and intoxicating. The look is dark, cloudy and inviting. The taste is yeasty and bready, with a feel that makes you wanting more.

500 ml bottle into weizen glass, bottled on 12/10/2012. Pours very hazy reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, brown sugar, light roast, banana, pear, apple, pepper, clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark malt and fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, brown sugar, light roast, banana, pear, apple, light clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, brown sugar, pear, apple, banana, light clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and moderate fruity yeast ester flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good dunkelweizen style. Good balance and robustness of dark malt and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
