Notes / Commercial Description:
Don't be fooled by it's darker color! This mahogany-colored beer is a moderately dark, spicy, fruity, malty, refreshing wheat-based ale, perfect for these early fall months. Per German Purity Law, at least 50% of the grist must be malted wheat and this is no exception. Enjoy this version of the old-fashioned Bavarian wheat beer that was often dark.

Poured into a weizen glass, the appearance was a ruddy dark ruby red to brown color with a thin layer of white to off white foamy head that dissipated at a decent pace. Messy lace, somewhat stringy. The aroma blends some spices of clove and ginger to some sweet banana, subtle bready malts and some milk chocolate tones. The flavor takes all of those previously mentioned aromas to blend nicely and leave a refined semi-sweet to dense malted wheaty aftertaste with the same sort of finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. Low carbonation but with that, it helped to allow the spice and the wheat to seem to hit appropriately on my tongue. Overall, nice dunkelweizen that I would have again. Seemed like an American brewer is fairly close on this style.
