Had this one on tap at the restaurant in Virginia Beach, VA
(Review is from notes)

A- Cloudy brownish amber

S- Caramel and clove smell, yeasty but can't get past the cloves

T- cloves, touch of banana with a flicker of fruitiness in the finish. Its a dark version of their Hefeweisen.

M- Smooth, carbonated and frothy

D- This clove thing is just not what I am looking for in a beer. Not appealing to me.

Enjoyed on-tap at the Miami brewpub. A hefeweizen with lots more chocolate malt, nothing wrong with that. An above average mouthfeel with bananna consistency and taste. A good dunkel, good looking with lots of lace. Milkshake, though taste is on the sweet side and no complexity.

The aroma has bananas, bubble gum, cloves, and wheat. The appearance hazy amber with a very large head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall a nicely done Dunkelweizen. I would gladly drink another one by itself or with food. It's worth a try.
