Came out of the bottle a murky brown. Thick tan head dissipated rather quickly. Wheat, cloves and spicy yeast aromas are noticeable. Some dark fruit notes as well. The flavors are a reproduction of the smells. There is a bit of sweetness as well. The end of the sip is a it watery as the flavors disappear. I would have liked a little more carbonation.

Great dunkel for a great price. Perfect for a warm afternoon.

Bottle from Harvest Market.
Pours a cloudy murky reddish brown with a tightly bubbled off white head that shows moderate retention. Aromas of banana and clove with hints of spice, light fruit, and earth. The flavor is fruity and spicy with clove and banana dominating. Light yeasty earthy flavors come in as well. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a bubbly sweet mouthfeel. Nice dark Hefe, a bit bubbly for my tastes but they usually are.

Poured from a 50 cl bottle into a weizen.

A: Medium brown. Pours a 2 finger, foamy, white head. Craters slowly and unevenly. No real lacing.

S: Molasses and sweet tea.

T: White bread, wheat, and tea leaf.

M: Light with a slightly sweet finish.

D: Sessionable.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Really nice head, no real lacing. Nose is sweet and bitter. Bready with a bitter and sweet component. Overall, this is a good quaff.
