This is a respectable Dunkelweizen, not brilliant, but respectable. It pours a slightly bright amber color, which isn't characteristic for the style as this should be a touch more dirty water, cloudy, brown. The beer is plenty carbonated, with not much head or retention, no lace at all. The beer is a bit more full bodied than you typically find in the style, with just enough of a coarse mouthfeel to let you know that this is a wheat beer. There is a bit more caramel in the taste than I expected, more sweet malts too, some cloying malty notes, definitely crystal malts at play here. The is a touch of floral texture to the beer, with a slightly syrupy consistency, a slightly musty finish, but still relatively sweet throughout. This is a decent, not brilliant.

Looks like chocolate milk. Strong starting head, but it settles to rim bubbles. A few spots of lace are left on the glass.

Sour nose with a toasted malt background. Low wheat and a modicum of yeast.

Not so dark nor so wheaty on the tongue, but these tastes are the strongest. Neutral body with an elevated level of carbonation. No real flaws, but not very interesting either.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 22 ounce bottle into Erdinger glass. The head was small and didn't appear silky. Deep amber, maple syrup color with plenty of carbonation running up

Smell was sweet, super suble roast scent.

Sweet taste of caramel roasteded malt, slight bitterness/hop at i could taste at the back of my throat. Nice spiced flavor overall

Mouthfeel was smooth and thin, no harsh carbonation on the tongue,but left slight after taste at back of tongue.

Nice slow beer but can see the taste becoming blah after a 22oz bottle. Would definitely get again as a treat.

I got this beer from tzieser. Thanks Tom!

22oz bottle served in a weizen glass.

L - clear amber color with a off-white head that thinned out to a ring.

S - caramel malt and ethanol.

T - the taste starts out with sweet caramel malt and then a ethanol taste takes over.

F - medium bodied with very mild carbonation, on the verge of being flat.

O - I'm not sure how old this beer was but I only drank half a glass and then introduced it to my kitchen sink.
