I believe this is my first beer of this style, and little to no experience means I don't have much to go off of. Bought this beer on a whim in Hancock, MI at their CO-OP, the whole oldest brewery thing caught my eye.

A&S: From the Dunkelweizen description this beer pretty much nails the appearance category; murky brown, huge clumps of yeast, great head retention (light brown coloration). The smell isn't very powerful but it does contain pleasant banana yeastiness along with some sweet maltyness.

T&M: Super drinkable for starters. Has the classic hefewisen banana and clove tones. Similar to the nose as far as the malts are concerned. Nothing surprising or nothing standing out. very crisp with little bitterness, medium to light body.

overall: I was happily surprised by this beer. Some of these old European breweries have beer that tastes remarkably similar (mostly due to the purity laws), but this beer and this style incredible delightful. The cost on this beer is extremely low compared to the quality (I believe it was around 3 dollars). Would highly recommend this beer to anyone.
