3.6/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at SGB on 2/1/08.

A - Hazy brown body with very slim off-white head that fully disappeared almost immediately. Very lively carbonation bubbles.

S - Predominantly clove aroma with a spicy malt aspect. Mild bubblegum sweetness and some banana and other fruits, but a bit more subdued than the spicy aromas. This brew emits a sweet and spicy yeasty aroma.

T - Clove and spices up front with fruit and bubblegum, as well as a hint of chocolate. Finish is rather bready.

M - Light to medium body with watery texture and quite a bit of active carbonation, resulting in some significant prickle on the tongue. A bit chewy. Finish is pretty spicy.

D - A prety solid dunkelweizen. Could perhaps use a bit more of the sweet to counter the spicy, but otherwise a nice offering from SGB.

Another good one at the brewpub. Aroma is nice malty with chocolate malt. Creamy head and lace. Medium to light mouthfeel, even a bit watery. Licorice and malt. Like a brown beer. Easy to drink but not one I would seek out.Softer carbonation, would be a soft drink replacement.

Poured out a murky orange yellow color with a chunky off white head, surrounded by good lacing. There was definite and satrong banana notes coming fromt he nose. The taste echoed this, and added some good spicyness as well, maybe even a touch of ginger in there. The mouthfeel had a good thick body to it along with medium carbonation. Long sweet finish, but not cloying. Very satisfying and tasty.

A 12oz serving at the brewpub in Selinsgrove, PA.

A: The dunkelweizen has a deep muddy brown color with some dark orange hints. The head is close to 1 finger in size.

S: The aroma is a roasted, burnt wheat toast. The wheat is evident but some estery banana notes are not.

T: The weizen has a firm taste that fits well in the style. The wheat flavor is soft and chewy, adding a slight edge to the malt body. The darker malts add a pleasing chocolatey element. The weizen element really comes through in the taste, showing off a clove body that goes nicely with the darker malts.

M: Weizenbock, in general, are very easy to drink and this is no exception. The malts and esters meld together nicely, creating a very easy-to-drink ale.

D: The nose comes across as thin but the flavor is pleasing. I'd gladly drink this again when we return to Selin's Grove Brewing.

A dark muddy brown colour with a small tan head and trapped carbonation. The head fades fast and reveals some light red highlights/edges. The aromas are spicy and fruity with some definate German yeast aromas in the mix as well. Phenols are all-over the place, and this brew could probably fool the most dedicated Franziskaner fan in a blind side-by-side tasting. The taste is wheaty, spicy, and fruity with some banana notes, and clove/vanilla notes. The finish is smooth and complex and the mouthfeel is creamy and to style. Drinkability is awesome as well. Another champion.
