Poured from a 16.9 ounce bottle purchased at Wegman's in PA. Aroma and taste is mainly caramel with hints of banana and nutty finish. A good dunkelweizen, but is rather watery for the style. I really expected better from this brewery with a label "SEIT 1050". Who knows when it was actually bottled; it did taste a little old (bottle code 126E1430).

Pours a cloudy brown with coppery highlights and a light, long-lasting, off-white head. First off in the aroma is sharp, metallic prune, along with some clove and a mild undertone of wheat and bread. The flavor is surprisingly tart, accompanied by some clove-like spice. It's pretty sour on the back end. Malty flavors seem secondary, but the malty aftertaste is welcome. The carbonation is almost creamy, and the feel is rather sharp and dry.

There is an abundance of tartness overall, with just enough clove-like spice to keep it interesting. The maltiness is disappointingly in the background. The sharp and tart qualities mellow a bit over time as the overall impression becomes spicy and dry, with the tart flavors lingering on the tongue rather than assaulting it up front.

This pours a dark, murky brown color with a thick, foamy head. The aroma is full of banana and yeast. The taste is sweet, bready with a lingering tasting of some bread and spices. Smooth and easy drinking with a malty finish.

Hazy amber orange color with a beige thick big head with great retention.
Nice aroma of caramel, banana, nuts and a touch or oranges.
Flavor of toasted and nutty malts, cardamom, cloves, dark bread, banana with cocoa and ice tea with an orange slice.
Light to medium body with good carbonation, slightly acid.
A pleasant light Dunkelweizen, not super complex, but it is not completely naked as well. Well balanced, nothing is really predominant here relatively to style.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I wanted to make some sort of blaxploitation reference/joke here, but I just couldn't pull the trigger. Hashtag full disclosure. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear topaz topped by over a finger of wan cream foam. The nose comprises dry wheat, mild orange zest, light pumpernickel, and a pinch of cardamom. The taste brings in more of the same, with the citrus coming through a bit stronger. This is balanced, though, by strong spicy contingent, mostly clove, though with bits of brown sugar and cinnamon in there as well. I also get some rye bread in the finish. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a relatively smooth feel. Overall, a tasty and enjoyable dunkelweizen. 'Nuff said.
