Big sudsy dusty white head on the pour, prune body, with a thick film of yeast left on the glass. Good fruity nose with loads of spice including monster clove, bananas, sweet malt, and white pepper. Good beer although a little gummy on the finish. Would have preferred a more restrained sweetness as well.

Amber colored with minimal head, scant lacing. Very subtle scent, with some yeasty notes. Light toasted malt flavor; very palatable. Lightly carbonated. Overall, quite tasty.

Out of a growler obtained from Portland growler guys.

The beer pours a brownish amber color with good head retention and lacing. The is attractive, as I get clove, apple, a hint of chocolate and considerable spice. The flavor profile replicates the nose in this well crafted beer, and I have to say this might be the best domestic version of a dunkelweizen I've ever tasted. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, and this beer certainly delivers plenty of flavor. Alcohol is very well integrated into the flavor, and drinkability is very good.

Impressive.
