Picked up a chub fill at Brewforia Meridian tonight for a very respectable $6.. Poured into my small weizen glass.. Decent tannish head rises up about 1" and dies back pretty quickly.. lacing is okay.. but could be a lot better. The brew is hazed walnut... very little light escapes.

Nose is pretty roasty for the style.. light clove phenols and even lesser banana esters bloom up and out.. more roasty than toasty..

Flavor seems more in style, but all the traditional German yeast components are really pretty light.. more clovey than banana.. some blossoming bubblegum with warmth.. light toasty maltiness along with some light caramel presence .. I would like this to be drier.

Only okay across the board.. I get this is a "PNW Dunkelweizen" but I suspect a bunch more temperature control would really help with the yeasty notes. More rich maltiness would be appreciated and bring things in to a more traditional brew.
