500ml bottle into SA perfect pint glass.

A: Pour a clear woody brown color with golden highlights beneath a very active, dense, thick, light tan head that lasted forever. Head eventually collapsed into a massive layer that left
S: Sweet, spicy and decadent smelling. Clove and banana dominated with hints of wheat, lemon and brown sugar. Smells awesome.
T: Clove, brown sugar, honey, wheat, dry roasted grains, molasses, banana, and faint lemon all come through, maybe with a touch of black pepper and chalky yeast as well. The finish is spicy and reminiscent of banana bread (full of nuts, raisins, nutmeg, cinnamon etc), and the aftertaste is earthy, peppery and flavored of apple juice or cider.
M: Medium-full body, fluffy, dense and soft carbonation frothy up on my tongue, with a creamy and fulfilling mouthfeel.
O: A fantastic beer and a great darker alternative to a normal hefeweizen. I’m no expert but probably one of the best in the style.

4.74/5  rDev +11.5%

A: A hazy penny copper color on the thin part of the glass melds to dark brown leather on the thick part. Lots of pillowy big bubbles with an aggressive pour.

S: Cloves and bananna esters peek through the wheat bread armoma.

T: Bananna, toast, no hop flavor detected. Slightly sweet, but so sessionable you can't help but take big gulps.

M: moderate carb with a smooth body. nice crisp clean finish. A tingly sensation on the toungue possibly from the residual yeast, nice!

O: This is by FAR my favorite wheat beer... and its the first time I've had it. I'll be seeking out more Dunkelweizen's in the near future!

a: This was a muddy looking caramel color. It poured with a massive, rocky head that refused to dissipate.

s Banana, cloves, plus hints of caramel and cocoa. Very bready overall.

t: This wasn't quite as fresh tasting as I hoped it would be. Yeasty cloves and banans lightly dusted with cocoa.

m: Maybe an old bottle, this wasn't quite as full bodied does I hoped it would be.

o: A bit of a disappointment overall. I just don't think this bottle was very fresh. Still, this wasn't bad at all.
