Aroma is fruit, slightly nutty/grainy malts and mild caramel/toffee. The flavor is fruit/berries, bananas, malts and a tart/slightly sweet/somewhat dry finish.

Brown in color with no penetration to light. There's three quarter inches of tightly woven creamy tan head. The aroma is banana and faint bubble gum. I taste pale wheat and banana esters. There's faint notes of bubble gum as well. The mouth is dry, clean, and crisp.

From a twelve ounce can, this brew is a murky brown color with a faint head. The aroma is a wheat twang with a faint malt undertone. Ester, with a bot of bubblegum an fruit (peach?). The taste is balanced, but I expected a little more toasted bread, based on the color. Medium-full in body and satisfying. This is an enjoyable, but sort-of average beer.

Good cloudy brown color with a huge tan head of foam. It smelled of banana clove and toastiness. Really good flavor. Tastes like an actual German Dunkelweizen.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. This beer is a slightly hazy amber color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is wheat and a faint sweet back drop. The flavor is not very strong but works, this is a mild dunkelweizen and probably the only I have ever had that could be used for a session beer.

Pours a hazy, copper color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of wheat, sweet malt, hint of hop, slight alcohol, hint of dark citrus, and yeast. Fits the style of a Dunkelweizen. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of strong wheat, slight yeast, sweet malt, hint of alcohol, hint of hop, and a hint of dark citrus. Overall, good appearance, aroma, feel, body, blend, and complexity. A great Dunkelweizen.
