Served in a nonic pint at the Fishbowl Brewpub, Leavenworth's Boulder Bend Dunkelweizen is a murky chestnut with a small, light tan head that leaves decent lace.

Smell is neutral, with light toast and toffee slowly opening up as it warmed.

Taste is richer, toffee, some noble hop spice, with a very clean finish.

Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and light.

Drinkability is high, this is a tasty, nice fall flavor without being to sweet and cloying. Highly quaffable.

Pours a dark pale brown with a short bubbly tan head. Short retention and no lacing.

At first to me it smelled like a handful of fresh black patent malt at your local home brew shop. A little oaky with some chocolate and a touch of bacon.

Flavor is good and balanced well. Not that there is alot to balance in this style. Not very bright and shiny flavor notes, just nice dark wheat-roasted malty goodness.

Very smooth, fresh and light bodied mouthfeel with low carbonation.

Overall this is a good dunkelweizen. Not spectacular, but it has pretty good flavor, seems fresh and is very easy to drink.

Bruised banana logo would have been more appropriate. Pours a hazy brown with smallish head. Nose is a big, fat bruised banana. Palate offers a nice mix of brownbready flavors and esters from the nice yeast, along with more bruised banana. Medium-light bodied. Easy drinking. Not bad for an American attempt at the style.

This onne pours a medium brown with some amber and a pretty small head for a German style wheat ale. Head was pretty tight, maybe around one to one 1/2 fingers and it was pretty light tan.

Nose on this one has coke syrup, bready and wheaty malts, and even a slight bit of wild Musk perfume. There is also some dried banana chips in the backround that remind me of a fresh made trail mix.

Taste is clean and crisp and consists of chocolaty malts, spices, mainly cloves and there is a little bit of the boozy alcohol in the finish. There is also a bit of the coke syrupy taste that I had in the smell.

This is a pretty good Dunkelweizen. I hav'nt had much of this style in a while and this is a good way to get back into them.

A: 2.5 finger head with some lacing. Very dark brown with some light getting through.

S: sweet caramel malt aroma with chocolate notes.

T: Sweet malt at the front end, milk chocolate in the middle and finishes with a roasted taste. Actually a nice flow and complex.

M: Moderate carbonation and medium bodied.

O: This beer is better than advertised. Its very drinkable and has a nice flow of flavors as it is enjoyed.

Pours an appealing dark brown to black with a quickly dissipated head. Mouthfeel is bubbly like most wheat beers. Flavor is lacking for a dunkel the malty taste overpowers the effervescent nature of a wheat. Not bad but not great and I'm only reviewing this based on 1 beer picked up at Total Wine from the warm shelf.

Served in a bottle.

A: Pours a moderate bubbly, fizzy head that dissipates slowly and leaves almost no lacing. Color ranges from the top blackish-brown to light brown/red at the bottom. Excellent colors. Noticeable carbonation.

S: Roasted wheat and yeast. Smells decent. Not unpleasant by any stretch.

T: Tastes like a dark hefeweizen. Slightly bitter, maybe due to hops? (Based on the taste, dunkelbock also fits quite appropriately).

M: A little light. For a dark beer I would prefer a heavier mouthfeel. Smooth mouthfeel. A little bubbly (carbonation) is perceptible.

D: Goes down very easy. Could easily have another but there isn't enough to make me want to have more than one.

Not much to bring me back to it. I'd drink it again if offered but it isn't something I'd probably buy again. Overall I'd say this is decent but not exceptional or outstanding.

Malty aroma has a subtle fruity underpinning and a hint of cloves. It pours a dark, rather hazy mahogany with a decent, fine-bubbled, light tan head that leaves some good lacing. Flavor has a malty core and fruity, caramel and nutty notes. Smooth Texture has average body but a good amount of fizz.

12 ounce bottle into weizen glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy reddish brown color with a nice 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of ripe banana, caramel, biscuit, nuttiness, chocolate, molasses, toast, clove, roasted malt, earth, and light yeast spiciness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance. Taste of chocolate, banana, toast, caramel, biscuit, nuttiness, roasted malt, toffee, pepper, earth, and light yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, banana, toast, nuttiness, and clove on the finish for a bit. Nice balance of flavors with decent complexity; though it does feel a bit on the watery side; no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice and interesting take on a dunkelweizen. Nice roasted flavors with decent balance of fruitiness; very smooth and easy to drink. Definitely enjoyed this.
