Got this from a friend from Montana. Murky dark brown-mahogany pour with a two finger creamy beige head with decent retention and nice lacing. Earthy, malty nose with hints of brown bread, subtle dark fruit, toffee, and a some metalic/mineral notes as well. The taste follows suit with lots of earthy, bready malts up front along with hints of molasses, brown bread, toffee, dark fruit, and a touch of banana. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and subtly creamy with good balance and drinkability. Overall, while this is not the dark Weizen I'm used to here in Germany, it's still a solid offering.

Served from a growler into a weizen glass
A- Poured brown with some reddish hues, very clear with lots of visible carbonation and a giant fluffy off-white head that left splashy lace.
S- Mineral, bready, and banana notes. Fairly faint aroma.
T- Bready, banana, caramel, toffee, and mineral notes.
M- Very easy drinking, light bodied, soft carbonation, and semi-dry finish.
O- A very nice and easy drinking dark wheat ale, which is a style I enjoy but don't see too often.

This beer pours out a nice brown with a nice creamy brownish head with lots of lace. The smell is of fruits with a hints of nuts. Nice really malty taste that is just a touch sweet which I like in a nice dark wheat beer. Has a really smooth finish with a bit heavy mouth. For a dunkelweizen this is one of the better ones. Goes great on a hot summer afternoon with salsa and chips.

A- Love the artwork on the label...full props! The brew itself pours a lovely partially yeast hazed coppery brown color. The head is slightly caramel in color and starts off about a finger in thickness, eventually settling down to a thin foamy layer. There appears to be modest carbonation lumbering to the top of my glass, and the lacing is quite impressive, leaving behind thick shapely pieces of soapy foam all around the inside of my glass. Very nice looking beer overall!
S- This brew has a rich, mellow, and malty aroma overall. More specifically, the malt sweetness smells like a combination of sweet toffee and/or chocolate. The richness has a yeasty quality, something like what fresh raw dough would smell like. I also smell an earthy hopped finish that gives this a well rounded aroma profile.
T- The flavors follow the aromas fairly well, with mellow sweet flavors of toffee/molasses, chocolate, and a yeasty rich flavor that is slightly fruity....bananas to be exact....nothing too ripe however. The finish comes across more crispy bitter on the palate than the aroma let on. Overall nothing really stands out....just a nice mellow and flavorful ale!
M- This is a very nice creamy ale! The carbonation is really plentiful yet the bubbles are very small individually....really allowing the flavors to burst on the palate properly! Overall this reminds me of enjoying the type of dessert that I really enjoy....complex and not super sweet.
O- This is a very highly drinkable ale in my humble opinion! I would have no problem enjoying this beer over the course of an evening and appreciate the well balanced nature of the brew! The alcohol is very well hidden, it's very flavorful and rich, yet it's also a very smooth and light on the palate. Now I can understand how this was brewed in Bavaria and won awards so many awards! I highly recommend this!
