3.31/5  rDev -13.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A: the beer has a clearly dark brown color, that is hard to see through, and really puts the "dunkel" in this beer, with a rich head and ample carbiantion
I liked it
4.25/5

s: not much smell here really, with some very very, very weak banna and a bit of clove buried in their somewhere, but sadly, most of it cannot be detected
it isn't good, but it isn't bad
its just average
3/5

taste: to be fair, this one doesn't have much flavor too, for a dunkel. it tastes like a hefe, just with a less defined flavor and less highlights.
really their isn't much to say here
Its not bad, but lord, is it not good
3/5

mouthfeel: this one is quite good, with a rich carbianted body, that really makes up the BULK of the flavor of the beer, s you swallow the beer and it goes down smoothly.
to be honest, it is the highlight of the beer

Overall. This beer is sadly very, very average, with the exception of its mouthfeel and appearance, which come off as being quite nice.
sadly, the most important features, are sourly lacking

I recommend their other beers. they are far, far better
3.5/5

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

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.
