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.

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.

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.

Pours murky and turbid. Light brownish amber with gold hues around the edges and plenty of bubbles streaming up towards the mammoth creamy head of off white foam. That head sits atop this beer like it's gonna last forever. Leaves wet lace, refreshes as it drinks, and never falls off completely. Nice layer on top throughout the drink.

Nose is soft fruits. Light banana and a nice bit of clove. Some tart apple to perk it up and a good bread malt underneath it all. Taste follows the nose all the way. Soft and demure but with a little bit of moxy behind it too. Perky carbonation and a bread that is stronger in the drink than on the nose. Smooth banana and spicy clove combine with the tart apple for a heavenly, creamy drink with just the right amount of tartness. The finish lasts and is dry and has a bit of wheat to really accent all those flavors. Tiny bit peppery at the end but that too is soft and gentle.

The flavors on this one aren't sharp but the drink moves nicely over the palate with a gentle mouthfeel that highlights the tart apple so well. The malt in this just keeps bringing bread to the palate and I really like that. It is medium bodied, tasty and very refreshing.
