GB beers recently became available in our area.
This one is poured from a 12 oz bottle dated 3/11. It's bottle conditioned as should be with this style. Displays a muddy, light brown color with requisite wheat haze and a big fluffy head. The head has great retention and takes on a rocky appearance as several minutes pass.
Really nice, full weissbeer aroma with banana, clove, and a delicate spiciness. The banana and clove carry over in the flavor. This beer also has that subtle tart, tangy character that the best german wheat beers possess. The esters are toned down a bit more than a regular hefe would be, as the darker malts lend a light richness and temper the estery character a bit. This beer has a light body and great frothy carbonation level that accentuates the spiciness and makes it very quenching.
This is one beautiful dunkelweizen! The best I've had outside Germany and a must-have for any afficiando of this style.

Appearance: Hazy, dark yellow; like carrot juice! One finger head.
Aroma: Citrus, grass, fresh but with some spicy notes, perhaps cardamom?
Taste: Mild, citrus and herbs. Quite malty for its style.
Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation, light bodied.
Overall: Not mind blowing, but decent enough with some originality as well.

Had the Dunkelweizen at the G & B in Bolingbrook, IL last evening. The color was a nice deep amber perhaps brown with off-white head that laced slightly. The aroma was sweet with hints of malt. The taste was a very good balance of grain, hops and malt. The was a slight sweetness that made the beer smooth to drink and the beer came off the pallet clean. Overall not to bad...the mouthfeel was smooth and easy. good session beer.
