Looks great but kind of citrusy and not a typical example of the style. No banana esters and little wheat flavor. Not a bad beer but not what I was expecting.

Taste: deep earthy, spice bread, semi sweet dark wheat with an easy finish. Malty wheat bread, flour nose. Nice mahogany red hue, mostly clear, tall foamy head and lace on glass. Full body. smooth and close to style.

I found Shiner's Dunkelweizen to be fairly good but a bit thin. I don't think it measures up to Weihenstephaners Dunkel but its good enough.

Look: amber brown with a very thick and fluffy off-white head

Aroma: yeast, toasted bread, caramel

Taste: Toasted wheat bread, some yeast, caramel, banana, a bit thin.

Feel: light body, a bit thin

24 ounce bottle into weizen glass, best before 4/26/2018. Pours slightly hazy reddish copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with amazing retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts the whole glass. Thick soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Insane appearance. Aromas of big banana, bubblegum, clove, pepper, pear, apple, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread crust, and toasted biscuit; with light notes of nuttiness, roast, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready malt, and light earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big banana, bubblegum, clove, pepper, pear, apple, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread crust, and toasted biscuit; with light notes of nuttiness, roast, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Mild herbal/grassy bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of banana, bubblegum, clove, pepper, pear, apple, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread crust, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready malt, and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitter/spiciness balance; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from bitter/spiciness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 5.6%. Overall this is an excellent dunkelweizen style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready malt, and light earthy hop flavors; extremely smooth and pretty refreshing to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Likely to be a new recipe over the retired version. This is listed as Brewer's Pride #13, slightly higher ABV. Nicely rich Munich/Vienna malts, balancing weizen yeast, and mild noble hop complexity. A really enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.
