This is one of the best dark wheat beers in the world. The taste is so smooth for a wheat beer. A lot of wheat beers will leave a funny flavor if your not used to drinking them, but this one is so smooth. Color is exceptional and you have to pour this beer in a tall glass and watch the beautiful bubbles. Its magical.

This is the smoothest beer I have ever tasted. It also is sweet not bitter which turns me off.
It has a smooth creamy head that makes it even better. I compare it to 30 year old Scotch!
Try it, you will like it. Now if I could just find more like this. My local distributor did not order
enough so my local retailers are out of it. Need some near zip code 54914.

One of the best Dunkles. Great flavor and head retention. Love the malty, clover tase. Not very hoppy....true to style. Wonderful mouthfeel and smooth, malty aftertaste. Cloudy as a summer day in Seattle....and that's a good thing! Enjoy this one in the summer. Some like it with fruit, but I think it's much better straight up!

Bananas Foster beer. Thick hunks of banana covered in gooey caramel tickle the nose. Hints of cloves, phenols, and classic hefe yeast emerge from that big, billowing head.

This takes me on a trip down memory lane: When my favorite bar was changing ownership a few years back, the old owner put everything on special to try to get a few bucks back and clear out inventory before taking off. Five dollar pitchers. Only five fucking dollars for this gem of a brew on tap. And it was one of a few select beers that really started me down my path of love...er, obsession.

And why not?

It's near fucking perfect beer. Something akin to a peppery feel -- cloves, perhaps? -- tingles the tongue while the palate is stimulated by the tiniest hints of oak and those same forceful caramel-banana overtones. It's sweet, but it's not sweet. It's flavorful, but it's refreshing. It's drinkable, but it's got some character. This is unquestionably one of my favorite wheat beers on the planet.
