Poured from 750 mL champagne bottle to a tulip glass. Bottled 2/2013.

A: Murky copper, active carbonation, copper-toned and foamy head.

S: Malt, wheat, granny smith apple, bubblegum, coriander, walnuts.

T: Malt and apple backbone with wheat, walnuts, banana, and plum.

M: Medium-bodied with slightly hoppy finish and bite from the carbonation that leaves a nice warmth but doesn't linger in an unwelcome manner.

O: A very fresh and flavorful seasonal offering from a new brewery (to me). I'll definitely be picking up more of their offerings, if I can find them.

Taken from my beer journal dated 6/13/12

Appearance: 750mL bottle poured into standard pint. Colour is a nice walnut-brown with a large two-finger head that fades to a puffy layer on top with minimal lacing. No visible carbonation but it certainly is audible!

Smell: Faint aromas of sweet malts, bready yeast, and walnuts.

Taste: Well-balanced flavours of sweet, nutty malts, spicy yeast, and a warming boozy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body is thick, silky, and alive with plenty of carbonation. Finishes with a lingering stickiness.

Overall: A solid brew. In general, it is a pretty sweet beer but not in a cloying way. It is nicely balanced and interesting enough for me to want to finish the bottle.

On Tap

Appearance: the color of a dark honey amber, like old crystallized honey. Very appealing

Smell: toasted walnuts, caramel and light molasses

Taste: it's beautifully smooth, sweet, and wonderfully balanced. It tastes of roasted walnuts (roasting brings out the sweetness and natural oils in walnuts, enhancing the flavors), sweet banana, light molasses or brown sugar and malty.

Mouth feel : smooth and tingles the tongue

Side notes: it's better than the banana walnut bread I made this morning. My first intro to dunkelweizen and it won't be my last.
