Served from the bottle into a weizen glass.

A- Poured a light golden brown color, lots of clarity, tons of streaming carbonation, with a massive fluffy white head that left no lacing.

S- Very big banana, clove, some toffee, big mineral, and light bubblegum notes.

T- Huge banana and clove notes up front. BIg toffee, caramel, nutty, and wheat bread notes. Some sweetness reminiscent of a cream soda and like vanilla. Some light bubblegum notes but not nearly as big as in their hefeweizen.

M- Prickly carbonation, very refreshing, smooth, almost creamy, and quite a bit of body.

O- I love their hefeweizen and I actually like this one more. The dark malt bill adds a ton of complexity to the usual hefeweizen flavor profile. It goes down so smooth too. I can't believe I have not had more dunkelweizens in my life, but this is incredible.

.5L euro bottle.

A: Deep copper, thick head that lingers. Careful pour required.

S: Banana and plumb or prune. Aroma hangs around to the end.

T: Banana and some kind of caramel apple.

M: Nice even coating, hidden carbonation fills everything.

O: A new favorite, a very excellent beer that will go with about anything.

Appearance-Dark orange/brown with a medium off white head.

Smell-Spicy with a hint of banana/fruitiness.

Tastes-Banana is the most prominent flavor. There is also some clove and maybe a hint of chocolate or coffee. Very pleasant flavor. The sweetness is much more subtle than their Original Hefeweissbier and Vitus but I like it almost as much.

Palate-Crisp and refreshing. Medium carbonation.

Overall-Not surprisingly it is great beer from what is probably my favorite brewery. It should please any beer drinker.
