This sediment-laden beer pours a pale golden orange color. Its head is white and fizzy, standing two fingers high and retaining well. Yeasty particulates are noted, as well as medium carbonation. The aroma is malty and heavily wheated. There are strong whiffs of under ripe green bananas, with other spice and floral notes. The yeast is noted and a bit chalky. As is expected, the taste begins with bright wheat. Here there are also cloves and other dark spices. The middle opens up with the sweetness of banana heavy esters. Everything blends and amplifies at the top of the sip, quickly disappearing down the throat for a smooth and calm finish of malts. The aftertaste follows suit, and breathes with more of that clove, and a sour wheatiness. The body is medium and the carbonation is medium to heavy, and slightly prickly. The mouth is coated nicely and is fully satiated. The abv is appropriate, hardly palpable, and, when coupled with the beer's smoothness, makes for a highly drinkable beverage.

Overall, what we liked best about this brew was its bold aroma and clean, crisp finish. The style of brew dictates darker, hefe-like aromas, and this brew had them all. It was very wheaty and estery, with that perfect darkening twist of malt and spice. With such robust scents it would seem that one or more of them could overpower the brew's taste, but here, we are given a nicely blended brew with a surprisingly delicate finish.

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.
