12 ounce bottle acquired in a trade with iowaherkeye today as an extra, thanks for including this in the package, currently drinking from Chimay goblet, color is very dark brown and nearly black, 1/2 inch creamy beige head that did not last long, some lacing at first, aroma consists of burned caramel and toffee mostly, also wheat, cloves, grains, other sweet malts, and roasted chocolate, this stuff starts off with spices and mostly cinnamon, chewy in the middle with various malts and grains, finishes with cloves and sweet cocoa, overall flavor is light overall but interesting, notes of spice and sweetness make for a unique beer, chewy, sweet, and roasted mouthfeel, medium bodied, moderately carbonated, taste does not last long, could drink a few more bottles of this no problem, as it feels pretty light, there is not much alcohol anywhere, goes down easy for the style, not a big fan of dunkelweizens but I enjoyed this one quite a bit considering, would drink again, worth trying

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
