This beer is retired; no longer brewed.
Square Feet Wheat for Fall/Winter has been released to the masses. This is a dunkelweizen of distinction. Fermented with a weizen yeast strain from the Andechs Brewery in Germany, Square Feet Wheat Dunkelweizen bears a taste of clove along with some fruity esters that include apples and pears. Heartier than a mere hefeweizen, this dunkelweizen is the perfect match for the Fall and Winter seasons as it boasts a 5.5% ABV and flavors that will complement holiday meals and desserts.

A brown body that is somewhat translucent, with a nice sized off-white head and a little bit of sediment. Good retention and great lacing.
Smell has clove, wheat and some fruitiness.
A little bit of clove comes through right off of the bat, and then some fruits come through. A little bit of apple and bubble gum. A little wheat twang in the finish. The yeast is the star here, it produces the dominant flavors of the beer and is quite tasty.
This mouthfeel needs a little more body for me.
Pretty drinkable beer. This was the first brew I got the chance to try from Bavarian Barbarian, and I like it.

A growler filled at the brewery today.
A: The dunkelweizen is a ruddy brown color, creek water. A bright orange hue emerges from the narrower base of the glass, especially when light shines in. The ale's head is off-white with auburn shades.
S: The nose has a strong clove aroma that seems really out of place, sweet and syrupy. After that initial unpleasantness, the German yeast strain really comes through with a vengeance. Clove is especially strong.
T: The weizen seems to be carrying some kind of baggage. The ale starts with cloves on steroids, almost syrupy and mostly unpleasant. The yeast creates a sweet body, some bubblegum and some banana. The flavor profile is strong, too strong for me to fully enjoy. Even one day later, the profile is bold.
M: The yeast has worked wonders on this beer, driving the flavor profile through the roof. I've never had a dunkel that was so in-your-face.
D: A unique take on the dunkelweiss style. It takes some getting use to before you begin to appreciate it.

Poured via growler into stange on 12/14/05. Thanks to Deuane for sharing.
A - Poured a muddy chocolate milk brown coloration reminiscent of unfiltered dark apple cider. Beige head stood about one finger high and retained well, leaving decent lacing around the rim of the glass.
S - Classic wheat beer nose with hints of clove, bubblegum and some banana notes. A spicy yeast character dominates the aroma.
T - All of the aforementioned aromas come out in the flavor, including a predominant clove presence and sweet bubblegum and banana, as well as a subtle citrus fruit character. There is also a fair amount of earthy hop bitterness in the finish.
M - Medium body with a chewy texture and lively carbonation, resulting in a prickly feel on the tongue. This almost has a gritty, earthy finish with some unexpected hop bitterness.
D - Really easy-to-drink dunkel with all of the requisite attributes of a classic wheat beer. Another solid creation from Bavarian Barbarian that is true to style.

A-Murky brownish copper with a medium light tan head that reduced to a thin cap and left decent lace.
S-Spicy clove along with some fruity esters of apples and pears. A bit of bubblegum in the background and some malty sweetness.
T-Cloved fruit with a nice long lasting spiciness. Nice chewy biscuity backbone. Notes of citrus (orange/lemon) in the aftertatse.
M-Medium-light body and a bit thin feeling. I would like for a bit more chewiness and malty body.
D-The yeast is the star of this one. A spicy, fruity, malty mix. Overall a nicely done dunkle.
