Pours a dark red-brown colour with light but steady bead. Head is jaundiced-beige with nice, tightly packed network of bubbles, and a dense sheet of lace left behind. Nice.

Lots of weizeny notes on the nose. Banana with a dark, slight spicy character backing up; plenty of black pepper, cumin and some fairly stouty roasty notes. Dark by nature, but lifted by weizen notes. Pleasant.

Taste has a surprising boozey element to it. It's mostly just dark notes, but there's a strength there. Starts spicy with some light nutmeg, before weizen esters come through on the mid. Banana notes and a big clove hit that carries through to the finish. Capsicum notes on the finish and an astringent spice note combining clove with coriander and cherry. Bit dry on the back but a tinge of banana sweetness. Not a bad dunkel.

Quite sizzle on the mouthfeel, too much carbonation for too much texture and it becomes sharp on the end. Bit thin and empty too, can't say I love it.

Some good dunkelweizen characters, maybe needs to be tamed a bit.
