3.5/5  rDev -6.4%

500 mL bottle poured into a straight-sided glass.

Appearance - Murky dark brown. Huge khaki head. Settles in a while to a thick collar.

Smell - Caramel and lightly chocolatey malt. Some wheat. Yeasty aromas overtake the malt, especially as it warms. Some banana and some brighter esters come through.

Taste - Wheat is stronger here. So are the darker malts. Caramel and some chocolate. Yeastiness takes over. Sharper, brighter flavor into the finish. Grainy finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - I've never thought that the wheat and dark malts have worked all that well together, except in rare circumstances. This is lacking that special quality, but still tastes pretty good.

3.53/5  rDev -5.6%

500ml bottle into nonic pint. best before january 2015, enjoyed on june 11, 2014

a: super murky dark brown with a bit of a chestnut glow around the edges. nearly three fingers of head off of an aggressive pour, but quickly fades. ugly but pretty

s: mostly toast, roasted malt, spice, and raisins. slight yeast, some chocolate, and hints of overripe bananas. quite nice

t: in three words: toasted raisin bread. toast, raisins, spices, and bits of chocolate. less prominent dark fruit flavours in here too, like figs and dates. timid yeast and banana notes. finishes malty/bready. very sweet overall, and heavy on the toasted raisin bread side, but it's good

m: light to medium body. the carbonation is medium-to-high and feels really sharp, almost biting, upon suds-tongue contact

o: my first dunkelweizen ever happens to be very flavourful, though one-sided, while being simultaneously drinkable -- this beer went down ridiculously fast. definitely wouldn't mind having more in the future
