Samuel Adams Dunkelweizen

This rusty colored, hazy dunkelweizen is only available in the Samuel Adams Harvest Collection 12-pack.  Samuel Adams Dunkelweizen has a filmy head that lasts for a bit and the subsequent lace is slick and slippery on the edges of the glass.  The banana/clove esthers you would expect are present, but there is also a whiff of…gasoline…(?) way at the back.  The flavor is sharp (no gasoline here!) and displays some roasted grains along with the banana.  It is not an exciting beer, but it is not bad.  It’s an interesting style, and one I’m not well-versed in, but I could see myself doing more research in the area of dunkelweizens.

Be forewarned that if you buy the Harvest Collection you will be stuck with 2 Pumpkin Spice beers.
