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.

ruby pour, awesome head, hazy throughout.
smell- yes, definitely cloves, banana, spice.
taste- one of my all time favorites(for, like, 30 years) although after so many i have come to be quite sensitive to the richness of these weisse brews.
mouthfeel is carbonation, spice; full feeling inside....
overall, this is, like i said, one of my favorite beers for so many years, before i tried so many others from belgium and before Total Wine and BEVMO came to town. OLD WORLD was the greatest place in the world and the best place to drink them. this isthe last one of the case i bought a few months ago and i'm srprised to find i hadnt reviewed it yet. i rated it, but didnt review it. i still love this stuff...

A: Clear brownish red, auburn, with a cream colored head that lingers around the glass after a solid 3 finger head dissipated rather quickly.

S: Munich and caramel malts, with notes of dark whole wheat bread.

T:First notes of cinnamon, candied sugars and coriander. Secondary flavors of Munich malts, bittersweet chocolate, and plum. Dry finish with no discernible hop flavoring.

M: For a dunkel, it's light and airy with moderate carbonation, little bitterness, and a semi sweet bite. No alcohol ethers present.

O: A solid example of a dunkle. Very representative of German beer in general. It seems like a great Oktoberfest beer, to be drunk in the outskirts of a 18th century German brew town, overlooking a field of two row barley, in some September afternoon, with friends.
