look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

At Croxley's Ale House in NYC. Into a weizen glass, it poured a chestnut brown with less than a finger of offwhite head, average retention, and average lacing. Little visible carbonation. Smelled of banana, clove, lemon/lime, brown sugar, and cocoa powder. The taste was a great blend of the aforementioned flavors, with some caramel also sneaking into the finish. A smooth, modestly carbonated medium bodied beer. Nicely drinkable.

Serving type: on-tap

A - Cloudy dark, dark brown with a slightly off-white head that disippates quickly and leaves a very short lace.

S - Much like their Hefe but more subdued and with some malty notes.

T - More subdued banana and clove that is very adeptly balanced by malted grain. Hops are just there.

M - Full yet a little crisp somehow.

O - A really well balanced weissebier. I prefer my dunkels to be a bit lighter brown. All in all, this was just a good, well-rounded beer.. I was hoping it would be a great hot summer lawn mowing beer. I'll probably drink it as an early autumn refresher, though.

Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Murky mahogany-brown pour with a quickly fading one finger off-white head with decent lacing. Nutty, earthy nose with hints of banana, brown bread, clove, and a subtle vinous character. The taste follows suit with lots of malty brown bread up front along with hints of banana, clove, toffee, apple, tobacco, molasses, and a subtle vinous finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly chewy with medium carbonation and good balance. Overall, a solid interpretation with good drinkability.
