Leavenworth Boulder Bend Dunkelweizen
Pours a sexy dark brown with a size able off white head and plenty of lace. Nutty aroma of roasted malt, wheat and hops. In the taste, roasted malts, tangy lemony wheat, and a firm bitterness. Good roast, but odd sourness and misplaced hops. I think this one needs some cleaning up.

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.

I bought a six-pack of Boulder Bend Dunkel in a grocery store. Poured in to a weizen glass.
Pours a nut brown color, semi translucent, with a small off-whit head.
Smell is a roasted malt aroma with the candy scents, caramel.
Taste is a roasted nutty flavor, with some caramel notes.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied.
Overall a drinkable dunkel but probably not a great one.

Appearance: Very dark brown, unfiltered, good head retention.
Aroma: The caramel comes through as well as small hints of banana and cloves.
Taste: Tastes of roasted chocolate malts; small hints of clove; bittering hops at the end.
Mouthfeel: Good mouthfeel--similar to other dunkels.
Drinkable: Not as drinkable as other dunkels, but good.
Overall: This is a decent dunkelweizen, but I think it could be improved if the clove and banana flavors came through more in the beer.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a very dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, a touch of yeast detected. Taste is also somewhat mild, some banana, a bit more hops than usual for this style, some mild spice. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is decent but mild for the style.

Pouring a cellar temp bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.
The beer pours a slightly cloudy mahogany hue with amber highlights on the edges of the glass. A creamy beige head of 1.5 cm foams up on the pour, but fades fairly quickly to a few strands of an edge layer. Basically no head at the first sips.
Aroma is some bready yeast and biscuity malt with a bit of toffee mixed in for good measure. I also get a bit of dry baker's chocolate. Fairly mild but not uninteresting nose.
First sip reveals a lighter body with fine tingly carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink. The flavors are similar to what the nose advertises with malt dominant profile of toffee and some chocolate. I do get a little bready yeast and some mild fruit flavors on the finish.
Overall the beer is not flawed but is not really memorable either. A little more yeast centric flavors could make it more interesting, I could describe the beer as a filtered dunkelweizen. Makes the overall experience, not bad but dull.

355ml bottle poured into pint glass 28/6/12
A dark brown with lots of haze and bubbles, just a pinky of mocha foam but its dense and retains very well leaving several rings of lace before falling
S coco powder, bruised banana, and some cold coffee, pretty straight forward
T more chocolate then the nose and just a little sour dark fruits that brings it down a little, everything I smell is still there but the bruised banana
M medium bodied but quite creamy from the bubbles and there's some coco lingering
O OK beer but a little sourness I could live without, almost like there's a slight infection but it is very slight if the case
A hard sell at 18$ a 6er here in Alberta, I doubt I'd try this one again with all the other options available too me
