imperial pint shared with my gf, poured into a tasting glass. lot number marked but no dates.

a - pours a deep chestnut color and forms a thin cap of sudsy, tan head. retention is good and the foam leaves thin legs of lacing in the glass.

s - banana, clove, candi sugar, faint bubblegum.

t - cinnamon and clove spice dominate the palate, but are supported by carmel malt and an earthy hop bitterness. faint apple notes in there too. finishes with more spice and a light bittersweetness.

m - lighter in body with too much carbonation for my liking. coarse co2 profile.

o - lots of flavor and seems to be a good representation of the style, i just didn't enjoy it very much. probably won't be purchasing this one again.

Review from 3/2010 notes. Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a hazy medium brown amber with a two finger light tan head and lacing. Aroma of wheat, banana and clove. A refreshing wheat beer with a good balance of wheat, yeast, malt and just the right light spiciness. Fairly dry in the middle and finish. A very nice dunkelweizen.

Pours a deep ruby read color that is a bit cloudy. Forms a bit of a tan colored head

Smell is a bit fruity, there is also a bit of a pepper scent.

Very sweet and fruity. Little bit of raisin, hint of banana and a touch of pepper spice.

Seems just a touch thin, with a lot of feel from the high carbonation.

Interesting beer, not quite what I expected. Sweeter and more fruit notes than a wheat beer, almost reminds me of a Belgian. Not a bad beer, one that is a good choice on a warm day.

Nice nutty favor in this dark copper colored beer. Nice covering of foamy head stays with the drink until the end. Adequate sedimentation in bottle to add final swirl to pour. A really good example of a dunkel weizen. Flavor stays on the palate for a while...
