A - Great pour. Nice off-white foamy head; builds slowly. Brew is dark crisp brown with lots of reds and blacks. Nice head retention too.

S - Lots of huge banana!!!! Great scent for this style! Lots of spices too. Not your girlfriends wheat...

T - Strong, but hidden nicely, zero heat. Great smooth Belgian goodness. Lots of cloves, banana, spice.

M - Dry! Great carbonation, but slightly bitter. The bitterness doesn't fit with this style.

O - Rockin' brew, glad I finally got to try it!

New Belgium Lips of Faith Series Dunkel Weiss, 1 pint, 6 fl. oz., Alc. 9% by vol.

Very dark appearance, nearly black, complete and utter opacity, lovely creamy tan head, large and lasting, looking great.

Aroma: banana cream pie. Boom, there it is. Soft, sweet, slightly spicy. A little bubble gum.

Taste: Big malty flavor. Dark and deep. Great little texture, dark fruit flavor coming through, a little fig, some grape, and then nicely dry. Some bits of cocoa, a beautiful mix of chocolate and dark fruit, rich and malty. Deee-licious. Tast-eee!
Can't dispute that. One flaw? That 9% a.b.v., it's roaring in now, and I wish it wouldn't. This tastes just delicious, and could have still been, without being so strong. Whoa.

The beer pours a dark brown color with a large, off-white head. The aroma is heavy on the wheat and roasted malt, with a little bit of pepper and cloves. The flavor is more of the same. I get some dark fruit, caramel malt, molasses, wheat and pepper. Very drinkable, with only a little bit of the 9 percent ABV showing. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice dunkelweizen and another good Lips of Faith beer.

On-tap at the Distillery in Savannah, GA on 2/5/11. Poured into a NB Globe.

A - Dark cola brown with a fluffy 3-finger bone-colored head. Retention is great, some streaky lacing is left on the glass.
S - Dark malt, roasted plantains, cloves, and caramel. Huge banana flavors on this, smells great!
T - Very close to the nose, dark roasted banana or plantains dominate with cloves, bubblegum, and a heaping caramel malt backbone. Probably the "roastiest", most banana-forward Dunkelweizen I've had.
M - Smooth and creamy with a medium body and prickly carbonation.
D - Nicely drinkable, but the high ABV would keep this from being sessionable.

Good to see a German effort from New Belgium. It pours redwood color with a tan head. The nose is very fruity with a bit on a bubble gum aroma. Taste is also on the sweet and fruity side with peppery yeasts and a spicy alcohol presence. Medium body seemed a bit over carbonated. A little sweet to drink more than a glass.
