look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours with multiple fingers worth of rich creamy head which settled at about a finger and was present while drinking. Above average active carbonation in the glass while drinking. Some light gets in along the edges revealing a dark brown color.

Smell: Balanced wheat and some mossy, earthy hop aromas hit first. A big bready, doughy body follows up the initial nose. Lots of sweet toffee and brown sugar warm up as the beer does.

Taste: Lots of the sweet malt tones picked up in the aroma pop out first in this brew. Decent wheat body carries throughout. Medium bodied fruits ride this one out.

Mouthfeel: Light, smooth carbonation makes this a very easy drinker. Sweet malt tones leave a pleasant sugary texture on the palate.

Overall: Really easy drinking but nothing about this beer really grabs the drinker. Overall malt sweetness really makes itself known throughout.

Slightly different than a Dunkelweizen and not quite a full Schwarzbier, but firmly in the middle. The bottle was one of those cool German flip tops that made a loud pop when I opened it. It poured an opaque dark brown with a full head with great retention. Overall the palate was light and thin for such a dark beer and the flavor was subtle with roasted malt, caramel and a bit of wheat. The flavors became more pronounced and complex as it warmed. This was definitely a lighter beer than I was expecting, but a solid German beer nonetheless and highly drinkable.

Pours an ebony black with a two finger khaki head that settles to a thin layer that mostly sticks to the rim of the glass. Aroma is nothing but dark malt: roast, chocolate, coffee, toasted wheat bread, and a good dose of yeasty tartness with slight spice (allspice?). I get some sweetness in the flavor that isn't apparent in aroma, otherwise all the other malt characteristics come through in taste. Bitterness is mostly lacking in this beer with more of a light tartness coming on the back end. The feel is creamy and full bodied, with a sweet finish.

If I didn't know better I'd swear there was some oats in this brew. It's creamy and varied in flavor/aroma. And it's not too heavy. One of the best Weizens I've had in a long time.
