This beer pours a cloudy light brown color. The head is a massive three inches in height that lasts until the beer is gone leaving large chunks of foam sticking to the side of the glass. The aroma is of clove, banana, roasted malt, and hints of cocoa. The taste is of clove and allspice mixed with overripe bananas. There are also some malty cocoa notes in the background that round things out. The taste is less yeasty and more malty than the aroma. There is still quite a bit of yeast character to the taste, but I would prefer if it were a little bit more prevalent. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a chewy texture, and effervescent carbonation. Overall, I really love this beer. Dunkelweizen is one of my favorite styles, and I really wish more American brewers would make more quality example of it. Cheers to Summit for making this beer. I will be drinking it by the case until it is gone.

A cloudy burnt umber. Glows light tan in the edges. Thin, white head that clings to the edges and vacates the middle. Smells quite good. Obvious wheat notes coupled with a lemony undercarriage. Some toasted almond notes, as well. Wow, what a smooth, flavorful brew. A bit of tartness at the outset, buoyant with high carbonation. Seems almost thin until a wave of earthy, bread tones come crashing in. The middle lays a heavy blanket of wheat and malt on the tongue and, just as quickly takes it off, leaving a slightly tart, clean finish. Semi-reminiscent of Stillwater's Existent, which pleases me immensely.

Like it? Correct

Unchained #9: With White Wheat, Cara Wheat, Malts (Vienna, Munich, others), Tettnanger Hops, and Bavarian Weizen yeast.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Weizen glass.

Appearance: Dark, cloudy orange with billowing creamy head and great lacing.

Smell: Sweet banana bread with notes of caramel and chocolate. Very minor touches of clove and Tettnanger hops.

Taste: Very malty and not as sweet as the aroma, with chocolate, caramel and banana. Ends suddenly with light clove and spicy hop notes.

Feel: Creamy (but thin) body with moderate carbonation. The sudden drier finish is slightly odd.

Overall: Very solid example of the style, with nice appearance, aroma and taste. The mouthfeel is the only minor issue I have.
