3.15/5  rDev -16.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

12oz into tulip. no bottled on date.

A: a hazed, but very bright, light brown/almost orange hue. head is brownish and white. retention is terrible as it disappears quickly.

S: a little bit of a vinous, corky aroma. banana. ground ginger. the vinous scent is a little off-putting.

T: pretty classic dunkel flavors to start. caramel, sweet fruits, a little bit of clove. a little cheesy? a lingering caramel flavor lasts long into the finish. along with a mild fruitiness.

M: ample carbonation on a medium body.

D: not bad, just not too impressed either. not sure if this was sitting for too long or just not great. maybe better closer to the source....

3.1/5  rDev -18%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: The beer poured very cloudy with two fingers' width of cream colored foam. It was a brown copper-like color. Nice lacing. But I would have expected a dunkel to be darker.

Smell: I could smell some banana, a bit of grass and biscuit, and maybe a little fruit with a hint of bubblegum. I expected a much more potent banana smell.

Taste: The beer had some banana notes but very subdued. A slight amount of bitterness. I expected much more in the way of banana for this style beer.

Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel, effervescence was light and tingly.

Overall: A nice, refreshing taste but seemed to lack body. It was somewhat disappointing for a dunkel.

Dunkel Weizen, Unchained 09
Summit

12oz to Adelbert’s snifter
Dunkelweizen

A – Quite opaque, barely translucent, but has some clarity when the light is right. Brown. Head nearly dissipates completely; when I opened it, it seemed the carbonation was a tad low.

S – Cocoa, dark fruit, and medicine. The medicine almost seemed to be alcohol at first. The cocoa smells very much like a dark chocolate bar, not powder. The dark fruit is fig and prune, perhaps a bit of cherry. The medicinal smell has sort of changed into a more plastic smell now. I don’t pick up any wheat.

T – A very cocoa-y dunkelweizen, with dark fruit notes in the middle and a medicinal cocoa taste on the back end. Kind of like putting dark cocoa powder into some fig juice and adding a splash of cough syrup; perhaps this could be a substitute drink for some pro athletes. It’s not bad, but it’s not good. There is also a lightness in the taste, a cold strawberry note that comes out between the middle and end that makes the taste somewhat refreshing. I’d give it a higher taste score for being interesting, but it’s missing the flavors I associate with a dunkelweizen. It’s more like a sessionable chocolate stout (with an off-flavor).

M – Medium bodied, kind of soft except on the tip of the tongue. Low carbonation but does seem like a sipper. The taste keeps the mouthfeel feeling agile.

O – While this is pretty off-style and aged, I think it has changed in an interesting way and remains drinkable enough, unless you’re really into style accuracy. It maintains some refreshingness despite the medicinal off-taste, and the cocoa is very present but not overpowering.
3, 2.5, 2.75, 3, 3.25; 2.85.
