Picked this up in a 22 because it is a style I like and was at a decent price, so worth a try. Excellent appearance and decent smell but then the taste did not follow. Overall it was a decent beer that I enjoyed drinking but would not likely buy again.

Mmmm! Nice. Dark murky creamy bitter... Brings out the best of both Parmigiano Reggiano and the Dunkelweisen characteristics as a perfect matching set. Wanted to try it with some dry sharp white cheddar but there was none in the house tonight. Yea, it's December. Yea, it snowed most of today. And yea, wheat beer is fashionably way out of season right now, but I have a special fetish for a wheat any day of the year. Gimme that light, easy drinking dark wheat stuff and I'll drink it as happily as any other beer winter or summer. I'm gonna visit this brewery and get some more of Neshaminy Creek's good stuff in me.

Pours a cloudy and very dark chestnut brown color that's completely opaque with mahogany edges and a thin off-white head that immediately settles into a thin ring. Not much in the way of lacing.

Spicy clove-like aroma with a weird acetone/solvent presence that is not usually associated with the style. There's also a strong bready yeast character along with subtle banana and a sweet chocolate malt notes. The chemical presence is really throwing me off, overpowering the sweet chocolate banana bread notes that make this style appealing.

On the fuller end of medium body with a prominent zesty clove presence up front but again, there's an artificial chemical-like flavor coming in mid-palate that throw things off a bit. It's not as offensive as in the nose but it takes away from the spice, banana bread and sweet malts. The bread and banana flavors stand out more than in the nose as do the sweet chocolate malt notes. Sweet chocolate with caramel, toffee and biscuit. Again, the metallic solvent like character shows up in the finish, lingering a bit after the swallow. Overall, this beer has some decent flavor but it's buried underneath a mess of other things that don't work well for the style.

Muddy brownish deep orange hue with a healthy tan tinged head about 3 fingers high. Smells nice, traditional bavarian yeasty notes of banana and spice . Almost smells like fried bananas in a light chocolate sauce. Faintly earthy.

Rather nice, on the lighter side of being medium bodied. Like the hefe by neshaminy lots of banana notes through out. really does taste like a chocolate dipped banana in a good. Bright effervescence that really break the body up. Slightly medicinal finish. Faint sweetness, some bready notes, a pretty complex low abv beer. Balanced and clean on the back end unlike the hefe, chocolate and caramel notes all blend together into one nice concise and somehow refrshing sip. Pretty good. A little bit of burnt toast comes into play at times that doesnt blend as well but overall a pretty good beer. Lingering banana and hearty breads in the mouth.

Dunkelweizen is by far my favorite style of beer. Among my favorites are Ayinger, Weihenstephaner, Erdinger, Hacker-Pschorr, Konig Ludwig, and Franziskaner which I keep on tap at home. Up until now the only US craft beer which has achieved the level of Bavarian perfection is Perennial Artisan Black Walnut Dunkel. Neshaminy Creek has delivered another outstanding version of this style. Burnt caramel aroma. Sweet dark fruit and roasted malts with a nice burnt caramelized bitter finish. Loads of sediment which enhance the sweetness. Aroma is weaker than a typical German dunkelweizen but the intense roasted malt raises the flavor bar above most of the Bavarian imports. I hope Dunks Ferry becomes more readily available in the future.
