Haven't had a Tucher of any kind in a long while -- can't recall the last time I had a Dunkelweizen. Spotted this at the local good beer store and it called to me. Bottling code looks to be similar to HB -- bottled the 90th day of 2017. Poured into my Libbey Weizen glass.

L -- Pours a cloudy copper to bronze color with a great deal of carbonation and a dense, firm, cream colored head that holds up through the duration of the beer.

S -- Banana and clove up front, light vanilla character follows. Vaguest of citrus in the finish.

T -- Light banana up front followed by spicy clove. Some mellow wheat malt comes through, but not as prominently bready or toasty as I'd expect from darker malts. The clove lingers throughout and there's a hint of doughy bread in the finish, but overall the beer is rather mellow -- even lackluster.

F -- Mouthfeel is soft to spritzy with a light-medium body.

O -- This beer is certainly tasty and drinkable, but it's difficult to distinguish it from a straight Weizen -- at least in flavor. A mild, sweetish caramel note comes through in the finish as the beer goes down, but it by no means "reflects the best yeast and wheat character of a Weissbier blended with the malty richness of a Munich Dunkel." as the BJCP guidelines suggest.

Nose of banana, wheat, caramel, dark fruit, faint spice, nice carbo. Taste light caramel, yeast, clove, slight bubblegum & nuts, medium body with a slight bitter finish.

1 pint, 0.9 fluid ounce bottle
Served in a weizen glass

This beer pours brown with amber and golden highlights. It is topped with several inches of tan head that hangs around awhile.

The aroma is pretty basic with cocoa, banana, and clove.

It tastes like a hefeweizen with cocoa added.

Moderate mouthfeel

It is a solid beer but nothing special.

Poured dark and hazy into a weizen glass. Typical of the style. Brown, hazy bottle drifting towards burnt amber in thinner part of glass. Huge head is just of white, but didn't last too long. Smell is fresh banana bread with definite cloves. Taste is less sweet, more spices, and no bubble gum (which I appreciate). Feel is pure, clean, water... not watery, just a clean feel.

Mahogany colored with plenty of carbonation bubbles churning from within. There's quite a bit of cloudiness in the body. There's a solid inch of tan tightly packed head comprised of small bubbles. Aroma is that of dark wheat with a bit of oxidization present. The taste is dark wheat with just a hint of banana esters. The mouth is creamy and dry.
