Sampling right now on 3/7/14. Comes in a 330ml (11.2 oz.) bottle. Bottle chiled down to 36 degrees F and poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a dark copper-amber in color with a 2-finger off-white foamy head that settles along the top and sides. LOTS of sticky lacing is seen. The aroma is of yeast, caramel malts, wheat with a hint of spice. The taste is about the same with a good mild flavor that goes down very easy with a sweet finish. No bitter aftertaste. A super good brew!

A - Nice three finger head on the pour; a dark burnt orange color flirting with brown and red depending on the lighting. Bubbling at the surface following the slow subsiding of the head. Cloudy like a good Dunkleweizen should be.

S - like the Hefeweizen, the aroma of this Weissbier is by no means strong, although the smell that does arise is very good. A nice wheaty smell with citrus overtones and a hint of malt; regrettable that the smell is not slightly stronger.

T - the one downside is the lack of heaviness which should be expected from a good dunkelweizen bier; a thicker consistency would do wonders here. That being said, the flavor is much more telling than the smell. Definitely a malty taste with an overtone of banana and citrus and undertones of malt and a wheat taste. Like the Hefeweizen by HP, the fruit flavor is strong and, at times, may flirt with being too strong at the sacrifice of the hops. Still a very enjoyable taste and like many wheat beers by HP consistently good to the last drop.

Mouthfeel: good carbonation levels; a nice tingle; could use a little more body to the beer but good enough where it would not detach from your enjoyment.

O - To be honest, I would love to give this beer closer to a 4 than a 3.5; it really is a smooth and enjoyable beer, but it lacks the intricacy and higher complexity a 4+ beer deserves. An enjoyable and present beer, but by no means a powerhouse.
