A truly classic German dunkelweizen. Pours a hazy dark orange/amber color with a great fluffy white head. Excellent retention and lacing.

Typical hefe aroma: yeasty spices, clove, banana, light citrus, grass. Smells sweet.

Tastes like banana, wheat, bread, clove. Lightly sweet, malty, but crisp. Carbonation is nice and lively; this beer is quenching and highly drinkable.

This has got to be one of the best examples of the style you can find. Highly recommended.

500ml bottle - $3.29 at Total Wine & More in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clouded, dirtied tan body with a near-white, expansive head.

Smell: Fruity, malty nose with some traces of honey on morningtime wheat toast, a dusty yeastiness, and popped clove buds.

Taste: Faintly tangy wheat malt at the start, a moderately sweet inclusion of both wildflower honey and light-colored caramel before some fruity tastes of Gala apples, bananas, and pears. Very low, fairly brief tartness present. Light clove accent (certainly less than was present in the aroma). Very subdued bitterness. Soft but also a bit of carbonated crispness on the sweetish, lightly fruity finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Fairly smooth on the tongue.

Overall: Quite pleasant and quaffable, one of those moreish beers where you clear through the entire bottle pretty quickly. This just might beat out Weihenstephaner's dunkelweizen for me.
