3.68/5 rDev -3.7%
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.

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!
