Two Brothers Bonfire Dunkle Weiss

More Two Brothers beer, the Bonfire Dunkle Weiss is from their artisanal ale series.
Poured reddish-brown from a 22oz. bomber into 500ml Spaten glass. Pretty big bubbly tan head rose up quickly, with an earthy aroma of nuts, grain, and fruit and a yeastiness typical of German wheats. Delicious nutty and fruity apple flavor, smooth sweetness and maybe a bit of chocolate. Doesn't come off as carbonated as the big foamy head suggests. Leaves behind a nice bread and nut aftertaste, no cloying sweetness, nice dry finish, some bitterness and spice on the tongue too. The banana flavor common to german weizens comes through with the bit of chocolate, and reminds me of a chocolate banana bread.
