It looks a little light in SRM to be a Dunkelweizen. You may try going with a darker crystal malt, or use a dark munich to get your color in the 14-23 SRM range.

yeah I was thinking that too.. the style guidelines are 14-23.

So you think maybe 90L?

I have also seen some people using a bit of chocolate, but Im not sure about that.

well you could go the traditional route and use 50% wheat malt and 50% dark munich (20L). That should get you pretty close. The last Dunkelweizen I made was 50% wheat, 47% Pilsner, and 3% midnight wheat. 18IBUs of Hallertau and used wlp300. I'm not sure that the crystal is really style appropriate if you're going for traditional and to style, but if you want the additional sweetness and raisiny character then yeah you could try a C90 or a small amount of C120.
