Pours a dark cicer color with a creamy light brown head that has decent retention.

Aroma is musty malts and cloves.

Taste is malts, nuts, cloves, apples and dark fruits. Some wheat in there.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly cleansing.

Overall, it is an OK beer. Nothing spectacular. One is probably enough.

Had this beer at the Yard House in West Nyack, NY. Have always enjoyed this beer and the style so pardon my enthisiasm as this is the first Dunkelweizen I have had on tap.
Head was creamy and light with aroma being a light malt. Mouthfeel was creamy, almost like a hint of Guinness, though not as robust as that. Malty, slight floral aftertaste.

Into a weizen glass. Finger of head with a cloudy dark brown body.
Barnyard smell with a little ripe dark fruit. A bit muted though.
A little sweetness, mild bitterness and a chalkiness. Disappointing and weak taste. None of the style's characteristic richness.
Too fizzy, medium body.
Not impressed or interested by this.
