3.4/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

Is dunkelweiss one word or two? Pours a mostly cloudy light brown color. I checked not much yeast. A soft off white head with ok retention and not much lacing to boot.

The nose is light overall. Some hints of malt. A very light chocolate backing but limited. Some banana character but limited cloves that could use some balance. Some bubblegum and a light minerally aroma. Almost salty in a way.

The taste is a bit more descript. Some malty undertones with a light caramel/munich taste. No real hint of wheat. The chocolate in the nose is gone. Would like a touch more complexity here. The yeast comes out but some banana and acetaldehyde. A touch of cloves but still limited. Some esters, rose peddles and figs.

The body is a bit dry for style. Could use a bit more complexity overall. Carbonation is light as well. Overall some minor off notes, but could use some more depth and wheat. Easy drinking though.

4.28/5  rDev +17.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Damned thing almost exploded as I popped the cap, then literally filled my snifter with the head after roughly an ounce of beer hit the glass. The beer is a medium brown, very rich looking, in color; but all you notice is the huge head of slightly offwhite bubbles. All different sizes, all popping at different times.

Nothing Earth-shattering about the nose, it's not bad, just nothing exceptional. Standard issue banana and clove, with what must be cinnamon giving it more depth. All the usual hefe suspects are kept in line with an aggressive malt bill.

I totally dig the taste. Very malty, but it's got that nice yeasty tang to it and the aforementioned spice (has to be cinnamon) to balance the twang and add a little sweetness.

Medium-bodied, feels thick and creamy as it dances on the tongue. Tangy and sweet, faintly spicy with some heat at the end, mostly from the carbonation.

An extremely easy drinker. No real faults, the lack of smell is a minimal issue in my book. The style hasn't always been high on my list of must haves, but this beer may enter my normal rotation of drinks.
