12 oz. Bottle

Pours a pretty nice clean/clear yellow color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, slight malty, grassy. The taste is hoppy, kinda malty, grassy/wheaty. Medium body. Overall, a tasty brew.

22oz bottle served in a large mug. Stopped pouring when I saw large amounts of sediment flowing, so I definitely got some in my glass. I don't see a date on the bottle right now. Bought at Jane's in Sunnyvale, flown home in my suitcase.

Pours a murky reddish brown with a smallish white head and lots of carbonation. Smell is old hay, caramel, a little nutty.

Taste is old hay -- tastes like old hops. I wish there was a date on the bottle. Musty, nutty, very slight toffee.

Mouthfeel is thick but not too sticky. Overall, not bad, but not that good.

I would mostly like to point out that this beer is not a Dunkelweizen, but a dark American wheat ale. I was just talking to Danny (the brewer) today and, while the recipe is very similar to a Dunkel, the yeast is not an appropriate strain to create that style. The origin of this beer is actually based on not having the right yeast strain, but already having the beer at the mash stage as that fact was discovered.
