12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

Tawny and hazed, short yet thick looking head with a decent retention. Over-ripened bananas, powdered clove and toasted crackers in the nose. Big on smoothness with a slick crispness. Toasty maltiness is little sweet, some buttery diacetyl and ripe fruity banana hit harder in the middle. Quick bite of spicy clove. Some esters with a quick tartness middle to end with some more of the toasted maltiness in the semi-dry finish.

Not half bad, the buttery tone does take away from the other yeast characteristics my taste buds were waiting for.

Beer review from BA Mag Aug 2007.

One of two beers vying for year-round status within the Samuel Adams portfolio in their "Beer Lover's Choice" tasting competition. Out of four possible beers, this one made the cut. Consumer voting starts in August.

The head retention is decent. Good lace but not a whole lot of sticking, with a deep-hazed dark mahogany color from the dark malts and yeast. Mild estery aroma, with suggestions of brown bread; faint vanilla and white chocolate in the nose. Crispness is not shy, with a snap up front and a solid medium body. Spicy bite of wheat and a well-rounded toasted malt flavor from middle to end. Clean palate, with a mild fruitiness and neutral yeast character. Hops are very mild as well. Finishes a tad dry.

Not your typical Dunkelweizen, with generous banana and clove; oddly, we did not pick up on either of those traits, as it was a bit mellower or restrained, though still flavorful. That said, it's hard to pit this against the bells and whistles of your typical Dunkelweizen.
