look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.

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!

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.
