Appearance: rosy, cloudy, beneath a lush, looming, lovely dollop of a creamy, puddingesque head.
Aroma: creamy, clovey, there's the banana, too, with a whiff of other tropical fruits, sensuous, arousing, inherently likable.
Great grit and grab on the palate with first sip, nice blitz of hops, followed by lush, mellow malt. Great body, long, lingering finish, persistent flavor. Smooth, and very easy on the tongue, Goes down the gullet nice as a dream.
A good dunkel-weisse is a wonderful thing, and Hacker's is a sterling example.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a really dark and cloudy ruby red with a 2+ finger light beige head.

S: a good yeasty presence of bananas, cloves, and baked bread with underlying notes of dried fruit.

T: a nice roastedness to it, with dark fruit and yeasty bananas, and clove hints. The palate is bready with a touch of dry chocolate malt. There was a nice spiciness as well dried caramel on the finish.

M: light and creamy with some fizziness from the active carbonation.

D: Oveall a well rounded dark wheat that was balanced quite nicely and drank clean. Really nice experience.

A - Very dark mahogany brown color. Head is offwhite and fades to an eight inch, less than I would have liked to see. Minimal lacing.

S - Caramely biscuity malts with some rich yeasty flavor, hints of licorice.

T/M - Starts out with a sharp carbonation bite, medium consistency and a dark grape like malt and yeast flavor. Faintly caramely and bready. Not much else to say about that.

D - Overall an good tasting beer. Flavors are pretty simple but still very solid and traditional.

Ruddy brown body produces a tan head that is gigantic and it leaves behind string lace. I can already smell the clovey makeup of this offering.

First drink and I was a bit surprised by the balance this was able to achieve. Malts have a big role in this offering. Bananna up front countered by sweet malts that have some backbone. Meaning they contribute to the taste with some deeper characteristics, namely chocolate and toast. Fruity esters are laid back. Finish is dry and unfortunately not very clean or crisp with some lingering malty aftertaste.

Notes: A bit of yeast sediment rolls around this unfiltered brew. I liked this one alot. Simple, smooth (until the finish), and tastes great.

This beer pours a lovely color - spiced pumpkin - with a nice yeast haze and a billowing head.

aroma is a bit faint but toasty malt is present as well as that typical wheat beer smell.

taste is of fruity malt, almost a bock flavor followed by a hint of bitter hops, a very pleasant flavor with no overwhelming qualities.

mouthfeel is medium viscosity with nice carbonation, very good.

drinkability is high.

overall, a very pleasant summer beer, nice balance, not the most remarkable brew ever but solid nonetheless.

I was surprised to see this on draft at Todd English's. The bartender stuck a wedge of lemon on the edge of the glass, and I promptly and hopefully, politely removed it. It pours a cloudy brown with a fair-sized fizzy beige head. A yeasty, clovey aroma is easy to notice. A damp earthy and hop aroma appears in the background. It's medium bodied, slightly grainy and loaded with mild to faint flavors. Yeasty, and clovey with a bit of banana, coriander and orange zest. A mild lemony bitterness and a faint flavor of limes emerge as the glass warms. The fizzy effervescence and dryness of the brew remains throughout.

A - Pours a deep golden hue, not so much brown, and is capped with a short-lived head, no lace.

S - Honey and barley malt, lightly toasted bread, granola.

T - Crazy banana pudding nuances abound, in addition to some minerality and contintental hop. Tastes fairly delicious.

M - Silky.

O - This is a very nice beer.

Cloudy light brown body with effervescent and impressive head that lasts. Smells of clove, banana esters with slight wheat sourness. Taste similar to aroma, but followed by malty chocolate undertones. Well balanced dunkel weisse that I would come back to again and again

I used to not like this style much. That's because I was drinking a lot of bad Dunkelweissbiers and didn't know it. Apparently a tough style to get right. This one does. It keeps everything that I like in a Dark German Wheat without letting it dominate the finess fruitiness esters and phenols. Both shine well and compliment eachother nicely. The beer is very bready and yeasty, evident in the flavor and texture. Strong on the banannas and hints of bubblegum, then rounds out with a smooth dark malt flavor. The beer never feels weighted...just light and crisp throughout. Slight astringency from the dark grains come into play late. Very nice beer.

Poured from a bottle into a weizen glass. The beer pours a deep amber, forming a very thin bubbly head that fades very slowly. Light spots of lace on the glass. The aroma is wonderful!! A strong mix of fruit, wheat, along with a hint of alcohol. The taste is very much the same, beginning with a light malt, and finishing with a full fruity wheat flavor. Very smooth and complex. Nice medium and smooth mouthfeel. Full body and flavor, along with decent abv. makes for one extremely drinkable brew. Overall, In my search for better German beer, this is a big step forward in the exploration of the style. I loved this beer, and will definitely be trying it in the future. Try it!!!

A- Quite cloudy translucent medium brown body that pours with a large white head. Head fades rather quickly to nothing. No lacing left behind in the glass.

S- Mild nose that is heavy on banana. Sour doughy smell in the background.

T- Initial taste is surprisingly tart. Sour yeast upfront with lots of banana and hints of clove. The banana fades for the finish which is a nice combination of tartness and sweetness from the yeast. What lingers is sweet bready yeast and hints of spicy clove.

M- Low carbonation and a nice full-bodied yeastiness to it. Very smooth and creamy.

D- This is a good drinkable beer that I will have again. Nice example of a dunkel weizen. I wish this style was as common as the hefe weizen.

Iced tea apperance, cloudy. Minimal head from easy pour.
Wheat grains fill the nose. Slight sweetness to it. Some earthy tones with clove and maybe lemon grass.
Grain flavors mix with hints of sweet malt. Some grainy astringant flavors mid to finish. A little bannana too. Clove finishes strong and stay on palid.
Hardy mouthfeel, grains seem to beef up drink.
Noticed production date of 11/07. Neverless enjoyable brew and look forward to sampling other offerings from brewer.

Purchased from Great Spirits, Huntsville, AL.

A: Pours a dark orange, almost brown color with a very thick tan head. Some brown chunks of yeast fell from the bottom of the bottle into the glass -- I'm not knocking the presentation, but it deserves note.

S: Malty, slightly sweet. Almost like... chocolate? Nah, gotta be imagining things.

T: Citrusy, slightly orangey. Like a good hefeweizen, but with a very slight maltiness that helps to even out the beer. I'm liking it quite a bit.

M: Moderate mouthfeel, to-style for a hefe of dunkel.

D: I'm not always a big fan of dunkels, but I like this one. Good marks.

Wheat hazy, golden-brown body with a big, off-white head.
Smells of tangy grapes and wheat malt (sour Grapenuts), with rich, fresh, toffeeish banana bread and yeast.
Taste is similar to the smell, but not as strong/assertive. There’s more banana, and less banana bread/toffee. Medium-bodied feel. Finish is wheat bitter.
