4.13/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured a dark copper/bronze color with a moderately fizzy white head. Pretty strong carbonation is apparent. With the finish of the bottle it became very cloudy with all the yeast.

Aroma is very inviting with strong bready notes and yeast character. Very sweet malt notes present

Taste was more "hefe" than expected, with the typical banana like flavors and sweet malt flavors. Very little of the darker roasted notes that would be expected with a dunkel.

Mouthfeel is certainly bubbly with all the carbonation but also a nice round feel to it. Drinkability is rather high and is probably one of my favorites for this style.

4.51/5  rDev +10.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Cellar temperature in a weizen glass.

A nice white, two-finger cloud of a head settles over a somewhat murky, fairly light reddish brown dunkel with carbonation streams rising upward.

It has a wonderful aroma of sweet, yeasty bread dough, caramel, raisins, vanilla, banana, and just a light touch of clove and perhaps some other spices.

The flavor is both sweet and tart, reminding me of banana bread and candied apples. The finish is a bit nutty and has the anticipated soothing breadiness German wheat beers traditionally have. There may be a little bit of clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon lingering on my palate. This isn't too unlike spiced fruitcake in flavor... or fruitBREAD.

Body is medium, carbonation high... but not too high.

Delicious dunkel.

4.9/5  rDev +20.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: Pours a cloudy copper color with a two finger thick creamy off-white head. The head reduces by about 25% but has great retention. There is significant lacing observed.

S - Cloves, banana and bubblegum explode on my nose. I can also detect some wheat which adds some character. Just another great nose from Ayinger.

T - nice notes that follow the nose, very wheaty beer with good fruit, clove, spice to compliment the bready body

M- Medium/light body and carbonation. Refreshing but not lifeless/weak bodied.

O: A really good weizen. Great for the weizen style, but I expected something a bit darker being a dunkel. Not upset by any means though.

4.25/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance:
Lightly hazed, golden oak colored body crowned with a generous, white head that holds on for awhile before dissolving to a small ring around the glass. Good visible carbonation.

Aroma:
Heavy clove and banana over a light, malty backbone. A hint of orange and ginger root with no traceable hop presence. Very welcoming.

Taste:
Again, heavy banana and clove. Sweet. Smooth malt and wet wheat character. Belgian candy syrup - typical affair for the style, but is of very high quality. No noticeable alcohol and a light metallic note on finish, but I have had this bottle for awhile so I'm not going to fault the brewery as I've never experienced it in this beer before.

Mouthfeel:
Smooth, light, and sweet. Light body. Medium to high levels of carbonation. Sweet finish. Refreshing!

Overall:
Another brilliant brew by the folks at Ayinger! A stellar companion for a hot summer day that is packed full of character. A must have for any beer fan.
