4.12/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: The pour is cloudy brunt orange in color with a frothy off-white head.

Smell: The nose is dominated by unripened banana. Aromas of wheat and clove are also noticeable.

Taste: The flavor profile starts out with soft wheat and an mild herbal and clove component. Lemon zest, caramel and notes of banana join the mix in the mid-palate. The finish is where this beer really brings it. Banana, fresh-squeezed lemon and clove, explode and linger well in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: It's on the lighter end of medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

Drinkability: This is a really good effort. Great traditional approach to the style. (640 characters)

My wife and I purchased a 6-pack from BevMo and was absolutely satisfied with the taste of this beer. From the minute you pour it into the glass you can see it is a nice wheat brown look with a great Hefeweizen smell to it.

When taking the 1st drink I knew that this was now my favorite beer. I was eating mexican food and the taste combined with the enchiladas was magnificent. The beer was a perfect match for the spicy taste. I finished the beer in about 4 gulps and wanted another 1 right away. All I can say is this a must beer for anyone. The smoothness that Gordon Biersch has perfected will be a delight for any beer drinker. Go ahead and give it a try. (663 characters)

Poured a deep brown with a fair amount of foam and loads of lace. The smell of wheat, roasted malts and yeast filled the nose. The taste was of a thick sweetness with a hint of bitterness to balance this smooth tasting dunkelweizen. One of the best U.S. Dunkelweizen that I've tasted in a long time! (299 characters)

This is a damn good beer. Gordon Biersch makes some ok beers, but this one is very good.

Dark toffee warm color.

Banana noise, yeasty goodness

Great carbonation, fruity taste, leaves with a roasty burnt malt taste.

Get this beer if you can and you like the style. (267 characters)

4.15/5  rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a deep cloudy hazy amber with quite a rapidly developing head that sits up very nicely.

Very pleasant clove and fruit aroma, minimal citrus. A slight sourness attacks the pallet and gives way to a mellow fruity caramel profile. Very bubbly mouthfeel, a little bit thin but not bad. Slightly spicy aftertaste.

Overall a pretty good beer, especially considering it cost less than a dollar a bottle as part of a Costco mixed 24 pack. (438 characters)

12oz. bottle bottled 37 days ago according to the date on the bottle. Perfect banana and clove flavors - intense without seeming fake or overpowering. Appealing coffee color. Lots of fine sediment. Not much hop flavor, but that seems consistent with the style. Exceptionally good, get it while it is fresh. Maybe the best beer GB makes? (336 characters)
