On tap at Bier Markt - Square One. Initially poured in a stylized Hacker Pschorr glass, it looked great but the pour was supposed to be 18 oz not 14, so I requested a different glass. Ended up with about 18oz in a regular pint glass (why they couldn't have served in the Erdinger weizen glass, I do not know?)

Appearance - Murky and muddy brown with sort of a gray or purple tinge to it. Impressive two plus fingers of fluffy slow receding very light tan head. Looks exactly the way a dunkelweizen should.

Smell - Banana, subtle bit of clove but bits of chocolate and a wheat grain aspect. Basically chocolate and banana muffins with a touch of clove. There's also some dark fruit in the background that elevates it slightly above some of its competition.

Taste - Pretty much like the nose with some banana (but less than the hefe), chocolate, wheat and grainy flavors and dakr fruit again. FLavors are a little subdued compared to the nose, was expecting a slightl more robust combo but still quite tasty.

Mouthfeel - Smooth, creamy from the wheat, good carbonation, fairly light and drinkable and eminently crushable.

Overall - Despite a slight let down on flavor, this is one of the better dunkelweizens out there on the market and wish it were something more accessible in my region, so hopefully in the future I can enjoy this in an appropriate glass and at 30-40% of the cost.

Had this as a draft in one of those elongated pint glasses, looked good and tasted decent....

Once the brew showed up at our table I was impressed with the frothy head that had decent staying power and a good amount of lacing down the glass. The beer had a sweet smell too it that blended well with the malty undertone. Though it was very carbonated, it was medium-bodied and tasted smoother the warmer it got. The taste was a mixture of grass, coriander, and light on hops, like I mentioned making for a smooth finish. Not the best German brew I've had, but well pleased with the selection.

Draft at Cafe Berlin in D.C.

Mahogany body with a white, frothy sea foam head. Aromas of clove, light spice, malt. Fresh, distinctly German, and delicious.

Hits those brown color notes with a cola looking head on the top. The yeast is so seemingly mixed up here, you get lots of banana phenols in a dark beer! Cool I guess. Booze is heavy in the aroma, wheat a backdrop aroma wise.

Taste was so much spice rack. This really had a belgian yeast vibe going heavy for it as the prominent flavor delivery mechanism. Lots of clove, tea, dark wheat bread vibes. Can just hear old school half century guys talking this up. Would recommend only to dunkel fans.

Dark and nutty in color, with silky head, lazy carbonation keeps the head alive during the course of the drink. Flavors of toffee and butterscotch, and a little coffee bitterness make this an easy drinker. Lovely!
