4.28/5  rDev +22.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: This beer pours a cloudy, hazy dark orange color with a 1 1/2 inch soapy, bright white head that leaves some lacing.

S: Smell is very strong of tropical fruit, banana, clove and nutmeg. I also get a faint wheat aroma as well.

T: Taste is a lot like the smell consisting of a very potent tropical fruit/banana flavor that is balanced out by the clove and nutmeg. This beer finishes with a wheat character and a bready dry finish.

M: Very fruity and sweet, has some slight carbonation and is well balanced. Very drinkable if you like the style.

O: This is my first time having this beer that I can remember anyways. I enjoyed it a lot and is a good summer time beer, not sure about releasing it for your fall collection, but not complaining. This is something I will be drinking often this fall, cheers!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a a Czech pilesner glass.

A - Poured a dark amber, copper-like color that made me think of an IPA, was cloudy with a creamy head.

S - Both wheat and malt were there to greet my nose at the first whiff.

T - Some excellent malt sweetness as to be expected from a dunkel, which then gave way to the trademark characteristics of wheat which were highlighted at the end by subtle use of hops.

M - Epitomy of Weiss beer, nice and light swashing around in the mouth easily and going down just as easy.

D - Very high

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.

12 oz bottle poured into a weizen glass at fridge-cellar temperature.

L – Deep amber color with a 2-finger bubbly head. Really nice retention and some good lacing. Clear with lots of bubbles. Looks good but where’s the haze?

S – Wheat and caramel malt with lots of banana esters and a good amount of clove phenols.

T – Starts sweet with caramel and wheat malts before spicy yeast comes in with lots of banana and clove notes and a little bit of bubblegum. Really tasty.

F – Medium-bodied with pretty good carbonation, a creamy and mouth-coating feel, and a sweet and spicy finish. Yeast peppery and clove spice lingers nicely.

O – This is actually a really terrific beer and a great example of the style. If it had a little more haze and a little more body, this would be at least a 4.5 all around. I am very impressed by Sam Adams on this one.

12oz bottle purchased at Shaw's as part of the new Samuel Adams Harvest mix-pack. Pours a hazy to murky copper brown body with over an inch of khaki-colored head. Smells nutty and banana notes and hints of spice and lemon-zest and pith. Toasty nuttiness hits first in the flavor, with hints of caramel and toffee, and suggestions of banana and spice. Medium bodied with ample carbonation. Pretty darn drinkable. Not at all a bad example of the style - a welcome addition to the Samuel Adams fall line-up!
