A: way too much head, but other than that a nice amber brown color
S: bananas, clove, but also a strong CO2/gassy tone
T: honestly, this is not very good...I do not know if it is because it is over-carbonated or what but it tastes a lot like seltzer water with a very faint banana/clove taste
M: too carbonated
D: I am very disappointed, as I am a big fan of Great Divide and dunkleweizen...I will try it again sometime and update this post if necessary, as I find it hard to believe they would actually sell something this bad, it might just have been mistakenly over-carbonated

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.
