4.5/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: From a 1.9 pint bottle and poured into a Hefeweizen glass is a rich and dark hazy copper with some amber hues through out this beer. On top is a very thick rocky head that is about two inches tall. Scattered lacing is left behind that looks very good in the glass.

Aroma: Clove, fruity esters, banana, and brown sugary sweetness. Floral hops mostly with notes of alcohol.

Taste: Quite the malty backbone with a buttery smooth mouthfeel. Banana, cloves, yeasty breadiness with a slight dry finish.

Notes: Such a great beer top to bottom. Cheers.

4.35/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Cloudy, light brown appearance with finger-thick head that slowly settles down, leaving good retention. Smell consists of brown sugar, citrus, bananas, bread and a hint of spices. So far so good.

Taste consists of bananas, bread, apples, wheat and some brown sugar, berries and spices. Kind of light tasting; but creamy with a good combination of tastes. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Aftertaste is a lingering dry, apple and berry taste.

Overall, this is a great Dunkelweizen. Very tasty with lots of good features, can't say anything bad about it. Definitely worth a try, should be a staple of its style.
