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.

This is my favorite of the Gordon Biersch beers. It pours kind of an ugly muddy brown color with a big off white head. The aroma is a little bready and herbal, with spices and berries. The flavor is strong with banana, clove, spice, herbal tea, and berries. A bit clunky, like most of GB beers, but tasty and not bad.

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.
