Notes / Commercial Description:
Creamy head and smooth carbonation complement its deep mahogany color. Bouquet teems with chocolate, apple and clove. Roasted malts intertwine with Tettnanger hops creating a depth of complex flavors. Smooth roasted malts and dark caramel leads to clean finish – unlike any other dark wheat beer.

Poured into weizen glass. It pours a dark cola-brown with a one-finger, ecru-colored head and lacing. It smells of roasted malt, tobacco, and banana. The taste features lemon, banana, hops, cloves, and a hint of caramel. This bier is medium-bodied and heavily carbonated but with an ABV of only 5.5%, it is very easy drinking. Overall, it is a nice interpretation of this style. It's not at the level of Weihanstephaner Hefeweissbier but it's pleasant and nice to drink.

On-tap @ High Point Brewing Co. in Butler, NJ.

Light brown in color and cloudy with a beige head. Good retention. A lot of roasted malt in the aroma. Some caramel as well. Light fruitiness to go along with mild noble hops. The balance in the flavor is towards the malt as well. Medium bodied and easy to drink. Maybe a little more fruit from the yeast would round this out and improve it, but not much else to find fault with. An enjoyable, non-intrusive dunkelweizen.

12 oz. bottle. Quite dark and opaque, aggressively carbonated. 3+ fingers of foam with nice head retention and lacing. Nice interplay of roasted malt character and traditional hefeweizen character on the nose. Cocoa-like roast malt is dominant, while the yeasty phenols take a back seat.

Roasted malt again comes to the forefront on the palate. Overly fizzy and aggressive carbonation holds this back from being great. Otherwise, this is a very good dunkelweizen.
