look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into an 8 ounce sampler. A moderate pour causes the head to froth over. The head is frothy and effervescent, with a light tan color. The beer is a pale amber.

Lots of light fruit in the nose and flavor, with just a touch of hop bitterness. Apple/pear, banana and pungent yeast flavors are readily detectable, but not overpowering. A spicy sweet aftertaste lingers, and is accentuated by the burps. A very easy drinking and unique beer.

I paid only about 3.50 for the bottle, which I consider a bargain, based on its overall quality.

No date that I could find.

A: Pours a hazy, almost dirty looking amber. Tall frothy white head. Good head retention but basically zero lacing.

S: Smells like a typical hefe. Loaded with wheat and bananas. A little bit of spiciness too, cloves I assume. Maybe a hint of grass?

T: Heavy on the wheat and light on the grass. Lots of banana and cloves. Pretty much what you'd expect from the aroma.

M: Medium bodied, soft and smooth.

O: Very nice dunkelweizen. Tastes like a slightly heavier and breadier hefe, which I'm guessing is probably exactly what it is. Very easy drinking.

4.58/5  rDev +12.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours golden to amber in color, cloudy, with lots of foam that goes away quite slowly. A bit chunky.
Smells more like a typical hefeweizen than a dunkel, but with a hint of roast/toastiness.
Strong hefeweizen banana and spice at the start, with some light roast in the back, also some faint caramel. Light acidic fruitiness, with some apple peel, and citrus is mild, not just lemon zest (which is not in the least as annoying as in other weizens), but some sweet oranges too. Wheatiness is a bit more complex than usual, dense and lingering, with nice grains coming through. Yeasts are chunky, quite heavy and spicy; traditional clove, with a whif of cinnamon also. Hoppiness is nice and green, with a mildly bitter finish.
Nice and smooth, goes down slowly, but easily. Beautiful, maybe a bit farther than a "dunkel", but definetely one of the best weizens out there. For me it was better than this brewery's hefeweizen.

4.06/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a weizen glass.

A - Pours a cloudy dark amber. Moderate pour yields an inch & half of pillowy white foam. Dissipates, leaving a nice ring at the top and a layer of bubbles as well.

S - A lot of banana on the nose, some malt, not much in the way of hops.

T - Similar to the nose - banana, bready malt, a touch honey. I also get a bit of spiceiness on the back end as well.

M - Medium bodied, but still crisp.

O - This is a nice beer - nothing mindblowing, but solid all the way through.
