Bonfire Dunkle Weiss is ok....I am just not a fan of this beer style so ratings from me are probably skewed. This was a retro release from Two Bros. The beer was dark almost opaque with brow/ruby hugh. There is a almost non-existent head that is not lacing. There is a light wheatly smell and a sweet mlt taste. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with bland carbonation. Overall...eh.

Enjoyed by me on tap at Chef Paul’s Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, Illinois July 26th, 2012 in the presence of my brother in law Mat. I believe the place had been renamed simply “Bavarian Lodge” but I still refer to it as “Chef Paul’s.” By any name this is a world class BeerAdvocate place. Anyone reading this should seek it out.
Review from notes taken while I enjoyed the beer.

A Little light comes through body, Medium head. 4.0

S Banana, some wheat, dunkel goodness. Love the smell of one of my favorite styles of beer. 4.5

T Sweet wheat, Dunkel banana, cloves but a bit thin compared to Classic versions of the style that do not immediately come to mind. 4.0

M Big beer with all of that taste, at least a moderate feel and probably a "big" beer as far as mouthfeel. 4.0

D/O Drinkability is good with the manageable ABV and the good tastes. Overall this is a fine Dunkelweizen. 4.0

Draught, unfortunately served in a nonic and not a weizen, thus the head was not as soapy or frothy as typically expected.

Smell: Banana bread, winter wheat, alcohol, and smoke

Taste: banana, bread, alcohol, cloves

Mouthfeel: full bodied, and smooth

Overall, this is a dunkelweizen worth your time. It was perfect on draught, and I can say that it is a testament to a great brewery.
