Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a cloudy amber/honey color with a large fluffy white head which disappears quickly. Aroma, right off the bat is the expected banana and clove with mild citrus notes. Taste follows suit, strong banana and citrus flavor, mild clove. Slightly fruity and malty sweet. Has medium carbonation, not enough for a true weizen. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, medium light in body. This beer I feel is only called a dunkel because it's too dark for a hefe, and there is no amber category. I prefer my dunkels to be more black, and I was surprised when I first poured this beer at it's amber color. It's a good wheat beer, but not a great one.
