Misc.: N/A

Poured a caramel, auburn, murky color with four fingers of rocky, khaki cream head. Logs of good-looking bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Good foamy lacing. Great retention. (Sight - 4.25)

Smelled cloves, banana, Circus Peanuts, caramel, apple, green grape, light booziness and honey. (Smell - 4.00)

Tasted cloves, caramel, unknown German spices, banana, sour green apple, somewhat saisonish, green grape and honey. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium-to-light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, fruity finish. (Feel - 3.75)

This may be my top Gordon Biersch beer I’ve tried, even though I think I overrated this one a tad. (Overall - 3.75)

On tap at the brewpub in DC on 09.14.2009. Poured a slightly hazy auburn brown with a good deal of off-white head. The smell was characteristic of the style with some dark malts and fruits being slightly overcome by the yeastiness of the style. The taste was much the same, and the brew itself was crisp with a nice hint of carbonation and not much alcohol presence. Definite drinkability as well.

Moved from a separate listing (formerly the DC location) that has been flagged as a duplicate on 11.16.2010.

On tap at RDU. Don’t know if I’ve had this style before. Strong sweet taste. Some banana taste. Body is a beautiful cloudy amber. Love the look.

Poured a dark, copper, amber color with large foamy beige head. Smells of yeast, malts, spice and some kind of fruit. Tasted of wheat, yeast, roasted malts and a creamy sweetness... surprisingly good and refreshing with a great aftertaste. What a pleasant brew!

The aroma has bananas, bubble gum, cloves, and wheat. The appearance hazy amber with a very large head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall a nicely done Dunkelweizen. I would gladly drink another one by itself or with food. It's worth a try.

Enjoyed on-tap at the Miami brewpub. A hefeweizen with lots more chocolate malt, nothing wrong with that. An above average mouthfeel with bananna consistency and taste. A good dunkel, good looking with lots of lace. Milkshake, though taste is on the sweet side and no complexity.

Had this one on tap at the restaurant in Virginia Beach, VA
(Review is from notes)

A- Cloudy brownish amber

S- Caramel and clove smell, yeasty but can't get past the cloves

T- cloves, touch of banana with a flicker of fruitiness in the finish. Its a dark version of their Hefeweisen.

M- Smooth, carbonated and frothy

D- This clove thing is just not what I am looking for in a beer. Not appealing to me.
