From the TapRoom served with a steak sandwitch and fries just before the Sunday night BJCP class. A noticable haze within the Dunkle style color and a wonderful head with size and retention you want in this style.

A welcoming aroma from the wheat and yeast with little on no spices - the clove seems naturally produced and dominates the bananna. Medium body - perhaps a little more than the guides but much to my liking. Some moderate sweetness that only seems out of place if you drink it so slow as let it lose most of its moderate carbonation. With warming offers some dark fruit flavors.

Congratulations to Tom, Steve, and all the Schlafly crew.

Bottled with love 5 days ago. Pours a hazy brown with some golden hues when held to light and a good size thick white head.
Smells of fruity yeast, some banana and a little spice. Taste is more of the same with a little more spice pressence. Mouthfeel is good and this a pretty drinkable brew. Overall a good brew.

Bottled with love on Nov 13, 2006. Tasted and reviewed on Nov 18, 2006—how’s that for fresh? No. 15 is a murky light orange in color with a ½ inch thick head that settles into a nicely formed white pasty ring around the pint glass—sticky patches noted throughout the course. On the nose are fresh banana custard pie offerings, and soft wheat tones; very aromatic. Some cloves are detectable as this beer warms. Up front, a definitive dark-hefe feel, with some banana peel and wheat-like offerings, creamy and sweet. Kisses of coriander and orange peel; although both are hidden, they are blended nicely. Medium bodied across the board—very little carbonation. The palate is cleansed, with both bananas, cloves and wheaty-ish malts. This is something that I could get used to. Unique style for this brewery, and incredibly enjoyable for the style; mighty tasty—a request for a year-round-offering of No. 15?

I had this beer on tap at the source Saturday for lunch. It poured a dark hazy brown with a light, fluffy off-white head. The head left a sheet of lace on the side of the glass. The nose definitely tells you this is a weizen beer. Dark fruit with banana esters. I don't get clove, nor did I detect the coriander, and orange the bartender told me where used in the brewing process. The flavor has a load of weizen character. Dark fruit and banana come across strong. I do get some of the orange in the flavor. This beer is quite sweet, not cloying, but the sweetness reduces the drinkability just a touch. Smooth and full mouth feel. Nice beer overall.
