A: Pours a cloudy reddish/brown color. A two finger beige head settles with good retention. Some sticky lace is left.
S: Sweet malt, caramel, and grain. Some banana and spicy aromas linger.
T: At first a sweet caramel and grainy flavor. Though gives way to chocolate covered bananas and some clove. Simple and enjoyable.
M/D: A light to medium body. A little watery. Easy to drink. Another quaffable beer from the brewpub.

This is very enjoyable. Simple, but very good. This is the special tap, so get it if you see it.

It hit all of the notes of a dw just not enough. Large glass of brown water. Not near enough mouthfeel, wheat, head, or flavor in general. I have had the kolsch and weissen. They are both pretty good. Seemed like they just phoned this one in. Very disappointed. This is my favorite style.

Dunkel Weizen (DunkelWeizen)
Had draft sampler at Crescent City Brewhouse, NO on 3/19/09 - afternoon
A 3.5 - Very cool mini wheat type glasses for their 5 brew sampler. Little to no head, a minimal lace collar (could be the pour or sampler glass?). Dark copper brown in color.
S 3.0 - very mild, some wheat, very mild. Not bad, just not much.
T 3.5 - this is one of the better brews I had on the sampler. Wheat and malt are present, but a bit more thin on taste than I expected.
MF 3.0 - light to medium in body, medium to high in carbonation.
D 3.0 - drinkable, but not excellent. Okay at best for the style.

This one was special for the Carnival. It is served in a large weiss pilsner combo glass. The beer is an opaque reddish brown with a soapy light beige head.

The nose could be dialed up a notch. I get clove, banana and some flattish grain.

The taste fills in nicely. The clove and all spice are prominent backed by fading banana and some lightly toasted cracker taste. Seems like a lighter version, but its not bad. Turns a little astringent late.

The mouth has that hefe slickness with low carbonation.

This is not a bad option if you find yourself at the Crescent City.

This was the special brew on the menu. It arrived looking like a hazy, almost murky, dark copper / brown color. Almost no head and very light carbonation levels. Very little aroma as some wheat tones were tough to pick out. The flavor was the typical dark wheat brew, wheat and malt are most of the flavor along with a hint of caramel.

The mouthfeel was smooth, but this seemed a little thin bodied. The wheat tones linger shortly on the tongue after swallowing. The drinkability is just above average as this didn't overly excite the tastebuds.
