12 oz bottle.
I didn't read the description before trying this so I was quite surprised by the flavor profile which is dominated by peach jam. This is not what I expect in a winter/holiday beer but I put that aside for the ratings. The aroma is also quite peachy.
Excellent appearance with a deep copper body that has excellent clarity and is topped by a creamy, durable beige head that leaves sheets of lacing.

Poured into a becher pint. Lovely beige head, much retention. Ruby brown color.

Fruity nose like berry tea, with some hops. These carry over into the flavor, with the peach more prominent. Bitter nut notes mingle with the hops. Dark wheat barely hinted on the tail. Mouth is medium carbed, smooth.

Not very indicative of a dunkelweizen, but works as a holiday beer, comparable to pale a winter warmer. A pleasant seasonal offering.

Light brown color and clear. Smallish head but it lasts as a thin layer of bubbles. A few minor bubbles for lace.

Very sweet and perfumy smell. It reminds me of a sweet, berry-like tea. Too much so. There's no wheat aroma and the darker malts are nearly missing.

The flavor is also too sweet as if with blackberry juice. Again, the wheat seems to be missing and the dark malts are overwhelmed by the sugars. This makes the beer sweeter than it should be, but also richer.

Maybe it is because I had it for breakfast on Christmas day but I liked it. Really liked the peach flavor, cased it to become a better than common holiday brew.
