In the glass and settled, this beer is a thick (not viscous) brown with plum highlights and lots of bubbles sticking to the sides of the glass. The head is a tan one, starting almost a finger high and receding quickly to a thick layer with heavy edges that makes for solid lacing.
The wheat forms a dry base under dark fruits, fig and prune specifically, and a hint of banana notes with a mineral tone to it under plenty of caramel.
Something like clove is stronger in the flavor, breads heavy in the malts with caramel secondary. The mineral note still runs strong, but in a complementary way, while toast and dark fruits make up a good part of the bulk of the flavor. Herbal and floral hops notes hit the middle and lead right into the finish, where a bit of banana peel as well as a zesty lemon flavor come in.
It's pretty light in the body but leading medium, still deep and well textured. The crispness isn't too biting but remains firm the whole way through, while its cleanness is notable. It's smooth, too, and the light dryness balances the feel.

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle at Mellow Mushroom, in Fayetteville, NC.
This beer poured a cloudy brown. Low head retention.
Slight maltiness, crisp, can taste the caramel but it's not very sweet. Low carbonation.
4.8% ABV, yet alcohol is more noticeable here, than with other <5% beers. $0.62/oz
Good Dunkel.

Poured from the bottle into a Libbey pilsner glass. Uh oh, green bottle.

A real nice hued deep chestnut and mahogany brown body color. Light tan head a bit foamy but with a nice growing pinhead sized bubbles in the formation. Settles to a creamy tan puck. Not much rising carbonation. Pretty solid.

Wow this smells like a doppelbock. Big clove notes, and cinnamon brown hot spices. Nutmeg and clove are all over this thing. A clean hop aroma of matching spice as well. NO SKUNKING luckily, we have dodged the skunk monster.

Very clean palate. Light crisp and with a nice caramel malt backbone, hints at light anise and licorice quality, with minimal toffee sweetness. Clean hop popping finish, and grain light airy quality. Good mix of light crispness and malt density as well for easy drinking.

A real solid dunkel lager, luckily feel even better dodging the green bottle of death (it appeared brown should have looked at the bottle cap neck closely I would have known better.

11.2oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A: Brown in color with orange hues. Rocky off-white head retains very well. Foamy clumps of lacing adhere to the glass.

S: Grainy and husky. Bready, toffee, crust. Hint of brown cocoa powder. Caramel. Grassy hops. Subtle grape leaf. Clean.

T: Toast, caramel, cola, brown cocoa powder, brown bread. Husky grain. Hay. Grassy hops. Sweet. Clean. Whisper of alcohol. Caramel, cocoa, and husk on the finish.

M: Medium bodied. Full and creamy on the palate. Some syrupy residual sugars. Low carbonation amplifies the syrupy feel. Husky grain brings a mild astringency.

O: Just as in the pilsner, the husky grain gets to me. It would be a more enjoyable beer if not for that. Could use a little more carbonation too.
