Poured a deep tea colour with thick tan head. Nice aroma of cloves and banana bread.
Flavour is on the clovey side with slight banana noted that linger. Light carbonation and high drinkability make this a winner as fair as I'm concerned. I like the balance in this. One of the nicer Dunkelweizens I've tried.

Had a pint on tap at an Edmonton, Alberta area pub (Spruce Grove to be specific). After being pleasantly surprised by this brewery's weissbier offering (see that review), I had fairly high expectations for this one. Certainly this was technically proficient and nothing was obviously wrong, a brown-red wood color with ample fizz and an inch or so of beige quick-breaking head. Aroma features the expected banana and clove elements along with some caramel and faint chocolate. Body is much like that of a lighter macro-brewed weiss, on the thin side and featuring an apple-like fruity "young beer" flavor along with some brown sugar, raisin and clove. Banana is low level, at least to my palate. A little sour and quite crisp. Not as complex as its lighter stablemate but pleasant enough I suppose. I have enjoyed less fruity and more malty examples of the style but makes a decent enough patio brew when in the mood for something a touch darker. Not particularly sweet and maybe a little bland. Was hoping for something more robust.

On tap into a weizen glass @ Heidelberg Haus, Seattle. Pours a deep amber w/ a 1-finger beige head, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is dark bready malt, ripe banana, clove, fruity esters.

Taste is dark sweet wheat malt, clove and other spice, banana.

Mouthfeel is soft and mellow, nice carbonation.

Overall a solid dark hefeweizen, a tasty pairing for my plate of jaegerschnitzel and spaetzle.

A: Dark brown wood stain colour with a ever slight red tinge when held to the light, 2 fingers of rich creamy tan brown light foamy head, heavily carbonated.

S: Vanilla, bananas and coriander, yeasty typical mustiness of a hefe or dunkel weisse. Ever slight typical plastic scent.

T: Bananas, bananas, bananas, coriander, malty caramel. Very well balanced and delicious.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation. Fine bubbles in carbonation.

O: Delicious, love this Dunkelweissen. Not usually a fan of these, but I am of this one. Could see it going well with cheesecake.

A slight Amber hew. Mostly sweet with a thick mouth feel. The banana flavors of the yeast dominate the palate and not much else is going on here. I did finish my growler but I wouldn't buy it again. There are lots of better Weisse beers out there. The quest continues....
