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.
