look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass.
Appearance: Pours a hazy copper amber orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Huge five finger off white creamy head with good retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass.
Smell: A yeasty, malty, and fairly spicy aroma. Wheat and Bavarian yeast with hints of bananas, clove, bubblegum, apple, pear, citrus orange, and a little nutmeg. Bready toasted malts with hints of caramel, toffee, dark bread, and biscuit. Some earthy and spicy noble hops in the background. A pretty nice aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma gives off, a nice sweet and complex flavor of wheat, malts, and spices. Wheat grains and yeast upfront with a taste of bananas, clove, apple, pear, bubblegum, nutmeg, and some orange. A nicely sweet taste of toasted malts with notes of dark bread, caramel, toffee, biscuit, and a subtle kick of roast chocolate. Some spicy noble hops help balance things out in the back end. After a few sips a light aftertaste of smoke lingers. A pretty good taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, crisp, and very smooth.
Overall: A pretty good version of the Dunkelweizen style. Nice fruity esters and spicing. The smoke adds a interesting kick.
Serving type: bottle
