Nice seasonal draft Dunkelweizen.

Presentation: Draft serving at its own brewpub. Served as a seasonal on the menu, the chalkboard notes Alc. by Vol (6.3%). Served in a shaker pint glass.

A - Hazy brown pour with a thin off-white head and faint touches of lacing.

S - Soft wheat-malt notes, a spicy touch of clove, coriander and orange peel.

T - Nice wheat taste, rich spicy notes as per the smell, clove, orange peel, and a further sense of citrus.

M - Medium to full body, with good carbonation, a characteristic wheat texture, and fairly smooth.

D - Nicely drinkable, a good offering for the style.

Notes: Another high-end seasonal, good choice, and very successful with some guests I brought over. Different style but can't help to think of their weizenbock that I had on a previous visit... I am missing that assertiveness of that wheat beer, this feels a bit like a watered down cousin. But in all all fairness it is a nice dark wheat beer and does its trick very well.

Served on draft at the Chophouse. I had not had a dunkelweiss there before so I was intrigued. Beer was brown, with a brown tight head, heavy haze. Head falls away and leaves a little lacing on the glass (not much).

Smell is really strong. Full of banana esters, some wheat character. No hops at all.

Beer is sweet, not bitter at all. Full bodied, fills the mouth completely. Its wet, not dry at all. Flavorful, nice wheat character great balance. Beer is heavy so it doesn't go down quick but its very refreshing.
