A: The beer is hazy reddish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige colored head that quickly died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with notes of brown bread and hints of bananas from the yeast.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but the yeast flavors seem to be stronger with notes of bananas and hints of dark fruits.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but doesn't seem to have the strong banana aromas and flavors exhibited by many of the top beers in the style.

Got this one in the mail.

Murky/hazy/muddy brown. Tiny ring of off-white head.
Nose is sweet and bready. Wheat and yeast. Sugary orange. Hefe-ish.

Taste is fine. Falls a bit flat. Cereals, slightly metallic, some hops. Some citrus. Kind of a mish-mash.

P- Thanks to my buddy Matt for this brew!

A- an amber/cola like color with minimal head poor lacing. nothing too exciting.

S- banana and clove dominate but then there are hints of earthy malts that come through on the back end.

F- earthy malts come through first in the mouth but then the banana and clove round it out fairly well.

M- somewhat chewy and creamy for a dunkel weizen. the alcohol coats the throat and mouth nicely and the banana is pronounced.

O- not a bad brew. the banana and clove saved it.

A muddy dark brown pour with a nice wheaty smell. Slightly fizzy on the tongue, but with a very small head. Tastes of wheat, banana, and maybe tarragon (some kind of herb at least). Leaves a very mild sweet taste in your mouth after swallowing. My first "dark wheat." Would definitely drink it again and will try other dark wheat beers.
