4.03/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A-Dark brownish-black w/rich beige head and excellent retention. Decent lacing.
S-Served on tap it was a little cold at first to pick up a lot of aroma. Nice aroma of wheat, a bit of chocolate, faint hops, and a hint of fruit.
T-Nice backbone of wheat and malt w/light spice, faint chocolate, and light hops in the finish that are very refreshing. There is also a slight sour remnant in the finish.
M-Creamy and light w/moderate carbonation.
D-This was an incredible-drinking brew that I had to order another of. On top of that, my wife liked it, and it went great w/my bowl of beer and cheddar soup.
Serving type: on-tap

brown, very clear, and with ample carbonation producing a nice two inch white foamy head. This quickly faded leaving behind nothing more then a thin film on top and a decent side glass lace presence. Very nice overall look though and there was definitely an unfiltered presence as the sediment was just well, settling down to the bottom. Aroma was full of wheat as one would expect from it. Lots of earthy and grain like tones that were mixed in with and accented very nicely by a bit of a yeasty presence. The aroma was slightly musty with a touch of a bready like quality, much thicker then I thought it would be.
Very nice here. A very rich full bodies flavor would be the best way to describe it. Normally I find wheat beers to always have the same overall flavor profile, however this one was a step up, and maybe due to the dark wheat. The flavor just seemed to come off as a bit more complex with a lot of earthy and grain like flavors. There was defiantly a lot of yeast and wheat mixed in and I even picked up the presence of some dark fruit like flavors. Overall very pleasing and a very nice palate about it. A nice smokey kind of flavor started to settle in towards the end of the session and almost gave it kind of a smoked presence in the finish
